In my past life I used to like to drink a diet coke every now and then. I also suffered from migraines. Little did I know that I was triggering migraines every time I drank one. The artificial sweetener they use in diet coke is aspartame, and I am very sensitive to it.
Normally I have a lot of energy and have multiple projects going at once. But the last two days I have been down for the count with this stupid migraine, and it’s not gone yet. I suspect that some aspartame found its way into my food or drink when we ate out the other night. The salad dressing is my prime suspect.
So the only thing I can tell you that I’ve really accomplished in the last two days is hanging up my first effort at fabric collage. I dyed the fabric at Mary’s and designed and stitched it all by hand. Don’t look too close, though, as you will find flaws, but I love it and think visitors staying in our guest room will, too.
By the way, whenever we were sick as kids, our mother would caress our brows and say “poor little lambie.” It always made me feel better.
