Trying to decide if going back to bed and getting up on the other side will help make the day go better.

I kinda wish I had gotten up earlier today, but on the other hand, I feel rested and awake for once. Shrek kept waking me up to ask me when I was going to get up, since HE wanted to run to the bank. Well, I'm going to the bank, too, but they are still open this afternoon. He went without me and now I can go do laundry, bank and wander the stores without him being ready to go home. Method to my procrastination.

Good luck, LP. I take a nap almost every day around 4pm to 7pm. Naps are great! It takes me about 30 minutes to shake off the nap when I awake, but then I always feel like the day has just started again!

I once knew a lady who was 111 years old. She told me that she accredited her longevity to taking naps every day when possible and not allowing herself to stress out over anything.

She also took ice baths every day. At the time, one of my wife's responsibilities was to help her in and out of the tub. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Pricing aluminum sulfate and neet's foot oil (or neem oil) at amazon, since I couldn't find either at the stores yesterday.
I'm going to try to tan a beaver hide with the fur on, for a hat for my son.
My first time probably won't be successful, but, if I keep trying, I might learn to do it well.
I just received a beautiful beaver fedora hat and he really loved the texture of it. He wants a man's hat though with the tied up ear flaps and the silky lining.

About to cook a spicy sprout stir fry. In about 10 minutes. Right now I'm watching Come Dine With Me, and drinking cider. Had a busy day Christmas shopping, so tired!!!

If I were to guess for a year, I doubt that I could guess what you've decided to tackle. What an interesting challenge. Good luck!

TinLizzie, thank you for the compliment.
I'm on the fringes of cooking combined with chemical experiments. Like homemade soaps, laundry soaps, tailoring and designing and other strange ways to make things for my family. I really enjoyed organic chemistry and regular chemistry in college and it never ceases to amaze me what I can learn on my own at home.
I'm nervous about trying it because I want to succeed. Luckily I have a supply of furs coming in, depending on the weather, the furs will be thick and luxurious. If I succeed or even if I am close to succeeding, I'll put up pictures to share the fun. Thank you for the encouragement!
