Is Gatorade Really Good For You?

Bummer! During the night Brittney started showing evidence of some kind of stomach bug, and she has been showing this evidence about every 15 minutes all night long. Consequently, Stephanie is concerned about her electrolytes. No Gatorade in the house, so I did some research and found out that Gatorade should be a no-no for anyone who cares about what they put in their body. If you're interested in some of what I found out, go here: http://foodbabe.com/2012/07/10/the-secret-behind-gatorade-how-to-replenish-electrolytes-naturally/

Food Babe had some healthy alternatives to offer: click to enlarge.

Hope Brittney is feeling better soon. I hate it when any of my children or grandchildren are under the weather.

Brittney's Flit and Float Scarf Done and First Days

I finally finished Brittney's Flit and Float scarf. She really likes it, though it is way too hot to even think about doing more than suffering through having her picture taken with it on right now. But it is ready for her to wrap around her pretty neck once we - if we ever - get a chill in the air.




 I found this soft drapey mohair like yarn in a thrift store for about a dollar, sweet find. The pattern is from Knitty.com, Spring 2009. It was really fun to make, so thank you Birdy Evans.

Chloe had her first day of pre-school last Monday, and Aiden had his first day of kindergarten today. Aiden's first day was supposed to be last Monday too, but his doctor decided it would be a good day to take his tonsils out. He missed the first whole week of school, and was glad to go back today.
