    To reduce the impact of hubby's snoring, I recommend . . . . separate rooms! As Warwick (a) snores, and (b) starts work at 2am, and I am a light sleeper, we gave in to separate rooms long ago. The 6 cats like it better too, more beds and bodies to share with LOL.

    Our poor abused husbands... I prefer to just sleep on the couch. Trying to get him to stop wakes me up too much.

    Haven't been in a reporting mood.

    Went out yesterday for some therapeutic shopping. I needed shoes, because my feet have shrunk and my old faithful black leather flipflops (actually rather classy looking) are about to give out after four or five summers of constant use. I'm not a fan of shoes in general, so I wear between-the-toe style sandals until it's too cold. Even here, that can be pushed to almost half the year. Then I wear them indoors for slippers. I also needed capris, because of my four pairs, two are getting seriously big.

    So. Nice afternoon by myself at the mall while hubby went to play with grandsons. I wasn't up for another dose of toddlers, much as I love them. And summers generally mean a lot of family time and rarely being away from my hubby. Much as I love him, being out and about on my own sometimes feels really good. And I scored two good-quality brightly coloured T-shirts, a pair of white capris and a jeans skirt (first one in decades). And two pairs of sandals (neither between the toe, unfortunately), brown and black, and a pair of white canvas sneakers, also the first in decades. Hey, there was no way I was going to shell out $30-$40 for canvas sneakers. Seriously. But these were only $17, so why not? And a pair of red laces for Canada Day, LOL! A good time was had by all. Hubby didn't even ask how much I spent, although admittedly, cheap as he is, he doesn't normally quiz me. He knows I don't throw money around. The sandals were pricey, although on special, but I see them as an investment. They should last for years for my every-day type sandals, especially because I have different ones to wear around the house. Now if I could just find a pair of brown ballet flats my shoe wardrobe should be set for years, apart from (un)reasonable indulgences.

    You would think that losing weight would make it easier to find clothes. It has, in a way. There are a lot more stores and styles available. But I always head first for clearance racks, and now that I am a normal size, pickings are slim there. All XS and XL...

    Stevia is saving my summer. I can drink hot unsweetened beverages most of the year, but when it's hot, I need my sweet drinks. That much ice water gets old really fast. I found that the kind that comes in a bottle with a little scoop tastes better than the stuff in envelopes, although I have a few of those in my purse for coffee shop iced lattes.

    And LBF's homemade sherbets go down with a little extra sweet too. We're in the middle of a horrifically hot day here, so I'm about to go make some for the Professor.

    This is my current theme song. And my first attempt at inserting a YouTube clip. Wish me luck.

    Made a pot of chili for lunch, in this heat! No chili powder goes into my chilis - fresh peppers, fresh garlic, and a generous amount of cumin instead. Two Scotch bonnet peppers for 2 pounds of meat. It was very good, but even Car Salesman Son (who is on vacation and therefore eating more at home) didn't add hot sauce. Which means that you should probably not use that many. I threw in some sweet peppers too.

    I scored some hazelnut butter at half price at the health food store. I had to empty the jar into a larger container to be able to recombine the thick paste with the oil on top, but it wasn't a hard job with a fork. Probably why it was on at half price.

    I picked up some supplements to feed my mitochondria, in accordance with the articles I mentioned earlier. CoQ10, magnesium, and D-ribose. Still looking for a couple of them, but I figure it's a start.

    Hi! Just wanted to say that I love this song too!

    The chili sounds great! Strange about the hazelnut butter. Was it in a glass jar? What I've done and found works when it's really separated is to store it upside down before opening. The oil finds it's way to the "top" and makes it easier to mix. Just a thought.

    Great trick, Kim, thanks!

    For CFS sufferers, I have been exploring this website lately, by a British doctor who specializes in it. It is an excellent resource.
