SP8 and my stomach

I had a balony sandwich for lunch today. I'm not sure exctly what I was thinking at the time - probably something about how much I liked them when I was eight years old - but now I'm thinking it was a serious mistake. I'm not even done with my chips and my stomach is complaining. Urgh.

But enough about my digestive system. You may notice that there are no photos in this post. That is because I still haven't gotten off my arse to clear my memory card so that I can take more pictures of the stuff I'm doing. And I am doing stuff. Lots of stuff.

I made some brooches from buttons, I finished one Funky Sock, and I'm nearly done with the second arm of the vintage raglan cardigan I've been making since forever. I've also been tidying up the loose ends of swaps. SP8 is over, so now I can tell you that the person I was spoiling is Knittymama. Of course, I never remembered to take photos of what I sent her, so if you're interested, pop on over to her blog and look around. (Here, here, here and here for photos.) For each package I knit her a pair of baby socks - because I could, and because they're addictive. The yarn for the last two socks was donated by Jeanette since I had run out of suitable odd-balls.

Now I think I'm going to scare up some herbal tea from the office kitchen, and perhaps have a nice lie-down under my desk...

Baloney does not sound like the best choice considering your normal diet. Tea should help. Maybe?

I'm knitting a vintage cardigan! with facings and double buttonholes and 3/4 sleeves. I was supposed to have finished it Monday but I'm still not done with the sleeves. And I hate buttonholes.

Baloney? I guess that it might still qualify as being vegetarian, I don't think that there is any real meat in baloney ;-) I hope that your tummy is doing better.

I'm laughing - even I won't eat baloney. I hope you're feeling better and that the tea helped! :)

I actually had two baloney sandwiches today - I think it was the Dijon mustard that made them palatable. I do hope you feel better.

I remember wishing I could take a quick nap under my desk. I actually trained myself to do a 20-minute snooze every lunchtime when I was in a corporate legal department. Waking up was always awful, and it was a miracle I never slept the afternoon away.

I once ate baloney samiches for lunch for two years straight. I have branched out to turkey or ham and just mentioned today that even those thrilling alternatives are starting to pall on me. I'm contemplating egg salad next. It's been so long I had baloney, maybe that will taste good again. I'm a creature of habit. And it helps me maintain my blood sugar. Protein plus fat plus carbs = happy pancreas.
