A blog posting...

I think I neglected to mention to everyone that I've launched a new website for the dye business... is now live! On the site you'll find not only information about colorways and where you can buy my products, but in the middle of all this is a Moose Manor blog! There you'll get to see what inspires me and my colorways, as well as information about shop updates, fiber festivals, and new yarn/fiber bases and other products.

Now, I'm not about to give us this little old blog, but I really wanted a place to focus on my dyeing. And this blog will still include dyeing, but it will still be the place for most of my personal stuff--and lots of pictures of the unbearably cute Miss Lily!

Oh pleeeeeezzzzeee, can I have whatever you got on the kitchen table???

So there's a new post over on the Moose Manor site today--complete with a little yarn p0rn. Why don't you check it out? Don't worry, we'll still be here when you're done... :-)

Eye Candy Friday--On the edge of winter

Before Snowtober blanketed Mount Snow with it's first significant snowfall of the season, here's what things looked like...

10 Things You Do To Care For Yourself When You Have a Cold

When I come down with a cold, I try to do everything possible to comfort and baby myself--except maybe staying home from work. (I'm so bad about that!) Here are those things I do to either recuperate faster or comfort myself:

  1. Eat breakfast foods--"Regular" food just isn't appetizing when you're wheezing and sneezing and what not. Toast, cereal, and the like are they only things I want.
  2. Tea--Always, always, a hot cup of tea. Can't stomach coffee when I'm sick.
  3. Eucalyptus scented anything--Perfect for opening up the sinuses.
  4. Lotion tissues--A must to keep from looking like Rudolph after a couple of hours.
  5. Sleep--Gotta support the body in it's efforts to heal itself.
  6. Vicks Vaporub--Again, need to breathe!
  7. Orange juice--I would probably be better off if I drank this year round, but I'll take that Vitamin C dose when I'm sick.
  8. Soup--Easy nutrition and that sinus-opening steam!
  9. Lip balm--For me, at least, chapped lips goes along with all the other cold symptoms.
  10. Halls Cough Drops (preferably in Cherry flavor)--Again, need to open up the sinuses, and that Mentho-Lyptus stuff does it for me.
