    He stirred in bed a little when I laid down.
    He reached for me & rubbed my head for a minute after that he found my hand & held my hand while he was sleeping!

      @jadedforever I used to have a huge bag and carried around with me my passport incase i wanted to jump on the eurotunnel one day. I liked it that i had this possibility even though i never actually did it. I also carried around superglue and a screwdriver. A girls shoe broke when we were out on the town one night....she turned to me for a joke and said 'you havent got any superglue in that bag of yours by any chance?' loved seeing the look on her face when i whipped out a tube of superglue and mended her shoe.

      @jadedforever I bought a rattan woven purse with leather straps at a garage sale for $1. probably my best find so far this year. I carried to an air show a few weeks ago. Besides the usual things like my billfold, phone and keys, I ended up toting 3 bottles of water, sunscreen, ready wipes, cortisone cream, my digital camera, sunglasses, nail clippers, small scissors, a roll of TP, A Sudoku puzzle book with pen, gummy worms, my newest paperback, hair elastics and 2 hair brushes. Looks like I was packing heavy but I've traveled with more before.

      @jadedforever

      Well, I guess that'd be a very expensive bronze/silver/brass breastplate "statement" necklace that I have never worn.

      Unfortunately, I didn't try it on first.

      It was and still is one of the most sublime pieces of jewelry art I have ever seen. The length is off though. It needs to be about an inch shorter to fall right on my decolletage. It'd look great at that very length. I'd fix it myself were it not for the fact that the strap the pendant hangs on is also handtooled and cannot be easily changed. I contacted the sculptor who made it and he never even had the courtesy to get back to me. All he'd have to do is cut/shorten and retool the end of the strap. I have some jewelry making supplies but not for leather. (The strap is tooled leather.) I have kept it because it is a work of art and someday I will find someone who can fix it for me. Right now it hangs on a wall in my home. It looks like it came straight off one of the Valkyries or Queen Boudica's chest........

        @beequeen If it is a good piece of jewelry, have you thought about taking it to another jeweler or to a jewelry maker and having it altered?

      @jadedforever There are so many things that I've bought which are absurd but the latest thing I bought was Lays Biscuits & gravy flavored chips. Not something I'll repeat. A coworker brought in chips that were flavored grilled cheese with tomato soup last week that weren't too bad.

    I don't make stir fry.
    Can I use it for anything?
    Or is there a reason why it's good for stir fry?

    If not I'll just donate it.

      @jadedforever I've never used a wok but according to Wikipedia they are a very versatile piece of cookware that has multiple uses including stir frying, steaming, pan frying, deep frying, poaching, boiling, braising, searing, stewing, making soup, smoking and roasting nuts.

      @jadedforever Typically you would use it for stir-frys. However, you can use it to fry things, as well as make other dishes that you would in a large skillet. Pretty much all the things @celticchristian said. I would love a good wok, but I just don't have room for storage and I have an electric flat top stove. I have found in the past, gas stoves are better for woks in that you can heat it up much hotter than what I have.

      It's good for stir frys in that you can get the wok REALLY hot and cook your stir frys really quickly. That's what the Chinese do as many foods are cooked quickly at very hot temperatures, of this ilk. The really good woks can last for decades and take a lot of abuse and wear (the kind the Chinese use). My dad still has the wok he used when I was a kid and it's still great, over 40 yrs old.

      @jadedforever I don't currently have a wok. I had an electric one for awhile and ended up using it to reheat foods when I was without a microwave. If you cook a lot of stir fry, a good wok is a good investment. Otherwise, you can get by with an iron skillet.

    If you had a hand towel that was discolored would you toss it, donate it, keep using it as a hand towel or use it for cleaning?

    If you had a bath towel with a hole in it would you you toss it, donate it, keep using it after your shower or use it for cleaning?

    I ask because I am doing the minimalist challenge & trying hard to declutter.
    I have a hard time getting rid of things...

    Thanks! 🙂

      @jadedforever What organization could you donate it to? Hopefully not the Salvation Army or Good Will. Both take donations of household goods but end up using a sizeable percentage of their budgets sorting through stuff and paying to have whatever to too damaged or contaminated to be taken to landfills. A discolored towel isn't a big deal. They look forward to reusing things like that for cleaning but they also receive used pillows, mattresses and furniture beyond repair that they have to discard.
      If I get a bleach stain on a towel, I'll either cut it for a different use or offer it to my daughter who cis on a tight budget and doesn't mind as long as it is clean.

    Sent a card out -

    I've sent a card out with some important things that I wanted to say.
    Not all of what I was originally going to send out but still important.
    I did talk about some of the important things that I was going to write about in the letter, I think.

    I think any card or letter I write should be important because it comes from the heart and means something! :)

    We had frozen yogurt last night after the gym! :)
    I'm allowing myself to have frozen yogurt.

    We just won't buy ice cream & keep it in the freezer this month.

    And I have a bag of chips left that I will allow myself to eat.
    But make a note of it here if/when I eat them.
    And I'm sad today/tonight so I might eat them they are my comfort food.
    After that I won't go out of my way to buy chips this month.

    Nightstand -
    I moved a nightstand.
    I got bored with where all my furniture is.
    I still don't like where I moved the nightstand so I will have to move it back or move it again anyway.
