OUCH!

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Well, I was cutting hair today for some of the sisters, and suddenly took a big chunk out of my own left index finger. Not a nick, but a serious chunk.

Since it would not quit bleeding, I ended up in the emergency clinic. I now have two stiches and a tetnus shot.

I am only typing this because for the moment the finer is still numb. In an hour or so, I will NOT be typing with it, I am sure. (Yes, I did manage to finish the haircut before the clinic!) Ah, you never know what a day will hold. I am just grateful I cut myself and NOT Sr Margaret who was getting the haircut!)

    Did you know that liberal amounts of regular black pepper will stop bleeding? I've had to use it on several occasions and the Dr. is just fine with it. It coagulates the blood quite quickly. Just don't use a table type shaker. Pour it out of the can. I almost cut the tip of my finger off with an electric clipper. I immediately poured on the pepper to stop the bleeding. When I got to the Dr. she looked at it and said to leave it alone. The wound healed and the pepper gradually fell away. I was worried it would heal with spots but it just fell off. And no, it does not burn. Just don't use it if you cut your tongue!!

93%

Saturday, October 18, 2014

Well, have been working at bettering my scores for the past year on the trivia section....and today, finally:

This month you have answered 54 of 54 questions correctly, 100% correct.
All time you have answered 3651 of 3947 questions correctly, 93% correct.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I had been at 92% all time for over a year now, so this feels like a great non scale victory! At this point, any victory is good!

    emoticon Seems like it's so easy to go down and so hard to go up. The opposite of losing weight.

Jelly, jelly and more jelly!

Friday, October 10, 2014

A friend unexpectedly dropped of about 25 lbs of concord grapes last night.

So....grape jelly marathon was today. After washing, and removing stems, the grapes were crushed and cooked to get the juice to make jelly. I now have 48 jars of jelly, and two other batches of grape juice frozen to make more next year sometime. Ran out of certo, and by the last batch, with the kitchen and I covered in grape jelly, I was more than finished!

But what a great feeling to have it stacked on the shelves, and it will make nice christmas gifts as well.

    I can't begin to imagine the "purpleness" of 25 pounds of Concord Grapes! I would be stained purple from head to toe! When my kids were little I made them drink Purple Grape juice outside in the back yard. I made them take their shirts off as well!

As for the weight, it must be all that delicious cooking you do. Probably putting on weight just sniffing the aromas.
