Just Bits

We were told we'd get beaucoup amounts of snow, but we didn't.  Roads were very bad yesterday, so it was more of a stay-in-pj's kind of day.  

Woke up to 17°F (wind chill makes it feel like 5°F).

I put 15 more rows on the baby blanket and got another order for cup coasters (thankfully those are already made).  I sold all the bookmarks, so I have zero in stock right now.  That'll be restocked once this baby blanket is done.

I brewed nettle hair rinse.  

Today I need to make homemade "lysol" wipes with tea tree oil.  I am down to the last one.

School is delayed today, but for some reason neither one of us got the phone call.  

What's the cheapest, yet most useful tool available on Amazon to make zucchini noodles?  There are so many options and I don't want to buy something so big I have to make a new place to store another appliance.  I would love to hear your recommendations.

Kristina, I have the Original Spiral Life spiralizer ( not sure if that is the exact name), which is a handheld and small device. I love it!

We had thick fog a day or so ago. It was weird. I couldn't even see the neighbor's house, and it's not that far away. Some schools in some NC counties were delayed, but I'm not sure it was because of the fog.
One thing about working on an afgan blanket is it keeps your legs warm while you're working on it.
I've seen those vegetable noodle makers at thrift stores for cheap, so you might want to try them first.
I think you can even use them to make fried potato strings somehow. I usually check Amazon first, just to check for customer reviews (because Amazon has a lot of those). And another thing I'd consider is getting one that clamps to the table and goes into your own bowl or container outside because if you get a contained one, I'd think a contained one is going to inhibit how much can be made at a time, cause remember, you can also use these to make fresh salads.

God bless.
