With a faint possibility of cyanogenic glycosides later. (Turns out sweet almonds do not contain amygdalin, just bitter almonds. Huh.)
Anyway. Yesterday, went to the doctor, got a spinal shot sort of thing of cortisone. It's not supposed to kick in for 24 to 72 hours, but I had a nice twelve hours from the OTHER medications they gave me to numb the area and keep me calm. From what I remember of the one other time I took steroids, we'll know when it kicks in because I'll start baking four-layer cakes and eating them. Won't that be fun?
Am still spinning on the "Spice Cake" that may wind up getting named "Amber". I had a pair of amber earrings on my desk, made of alternating chips of yellow and brown amber, and I realized the colors were nearly identical to the two plies of the laceweight I'm spinning right now. I love real-life inspiration. Live on it, really. So the new laceweight is looking like amber to me.
The knitting is coming along. Cameo is looking like a sweater, and the fit seems perfect. Which worries me (when was the last time I knit something perfect?) but I'll keep on keeping on, and we'll see. It also looks like I'll have JUST enough yarn.
The Goober is still taking photos.
She would rip through a twelve pack of batteries a day if we let her.
We're edging out of denial and avoidance on the move and starting to box things up. More, we're making lists of what is getting taken to the dump or sold or given away. We definitely have too much stuff.
But for now, I think I'm gonna go back to spinning.
