All that grumpiness in my last post must have been a sign that I was getting well. My voice came back! Still kind of scratchy & weak, but it's there. I can make phone calls now. In fact I made a couple of them yesterday. Woohoo! It's a thrill a minute around here....

Anyway, I've been meaning to point y'all toward Donna's new Waribashi Project. She's been collecting & washing chopsticks every day, like a maniac.

Is this weather splendid, or what?!
