Random bullets for a Tuesday morning
11 May 2010
- I’ve just switched back (again; I do this every 4 months or so) to washing my hair with baking soda and conditioning with an apple cider vinegar rinse. The scalp massage feels so good!
- Sometimes I think it be cool to live in a small cabin on a mountain. The road wouldn’t be passable in the winter, so once a week I could trek down to town on snowshoes for supplies and a bit of social interaction. I’d have to have a large pantry to store enough heavy things like canned tomatoes, dried beans, and flour to make it thru the winter (wouldn’t want to hike with that stuff in my backpack!). Probably wouldn’t have Internet — unless we (I’m assuming the Consort would join me, at least part of the time) could rig a bicycle to a generator to produce enough electricity for it. That would be a great way to stay in shape during the deepest part of winter, and it would be a nice way to pay forward the sedentary time I’d be spending online.
- Last week I wore my new purple knitted socks. I saw both of them when I put them in the (front loading) washing machine, but only could find one to put on the drying rack at the end of the cycle. It didn’t slip thru to the dryer, because I didn’t find it in that pile of stuff, either. How the heck can someone lose a sock like that? And how disappointing when it’s a sock I knit myself.
- It sure would have come in handy today — we’re in the middle of a May cold front, and I actually turned the heat on for a few hours last night. Since I’m wearing my purple long-sleeved t-shirt today (wish I hadn’t packed the turtlenecks away already), the new socks would have matched and made me smile. Oh well.
