Thanks to mom's yard, I have a fresh source of nettles. Nettles do everything, healthwise, except for cure cancer. (That distinction goes to black seed oil.) ((At least, if you believe everything you read on the web.)) I thought to myself, "What harm can come from trying nettle tea and cooked nettle greens for allergies?" (Uncooked nettle greens would be bad. I can see lots of harm coming from that.) So, I'm experimenting. One cup of nettle tea, and I'm still here to write about it.
Our back door still opens, and the vacuum cleaner, put back together with a new belt, actually WORKS! I vacuumed every carpet in the house. Now I'm wondering how long the belt had been broken. I remember picking dog hair and string off one piece of carpet by hand last summer, since the vacuum wasn't getting it. Yesterday, it cleaned up in a jiffy with just two passes.
Knitting ... has been delightful. The Nattroyer has grown a bit, but not too much. One piece of stealth knitting is done, and another has begun. The begun one is going to be DELIGHTFUL to knit. I am looking forward to it. It's the sort of delightful knitting that makes bedtime a chore. "But I don't wanna!!!"
