Did you know random vegetables can randomly grow a random invisible fungus if you let them sit out too long, which is immune to the heat of normal cooking? I got to know this trojan mold pretty intimately on Monday when I decided to bake and eat the perfectly pristine-looking whole spaghetti squash I'd been anticipating for a week. Cue violent illness. I'll spare you the details. Uggh. I missed my dentist appointment again, too. But at least I saved my guy from the same illness -- we usually split spaghetti squashes.

Gravol and Pepto Bismol didn't help my nausea symptoms at all that first night, and only helped a bit the following days. Know what did work though? Bong hits. Small ones. It didn't even alter my mental state, just went right to the nausea and cleared it up for hours at a time, thank goodness. Three cheers for medical recreational marijuana.

I spent the week slowly rehydrating with lots of minty green tea, naps, and all the episodes of David Attenborough's Life miniseries on Netflix. The next time you're sick, do try some nature documentaries, especially Attenborough's. The pacing is calming, the subject matter is interesting, and the scenery is absolutely beautiful, especially on a big TV (my living room has only just evolved past the clunky CRT). When I was deeply worn down from a few days of constant sickness and weakness, these were incredibly comforting to watch.

I'm feeling stronger now, looking forward to getting back to the gym next week. Still - must hydrate!

On an extra little note, after doing some research I've decided to try writing at Hubpages. They're going through a big transition to keep up with google search algorithm updates right now and I'm impressed by the way their team is responding to this challenge with growth, rather than shrinking away from it. Here's a link to my profile: CandyHippie at HubPages. While I'm new to HubPages I've got solid freelance writing experience. With patience, attention and love this could work out nicely!

I've done so many millions of things in the last year! Okay not quite millions, but many many lots. I'm x-posting this entry from my LJ to have something posted here while I start to find my way around DW and get used to the site. :)

My Etsy shop has over 130 items in it now.

I've made nine mandala coloring books in total: Flower Mandalas, Vajra Mandalas, Fantasy Forest Mandalas, Crystal Mandalas, Advanced Flower Mandalas, Halloween Mandalas, Christmas Mandalas, Wreath Mandalas and Monthly Mandalas. The last one is also available in the form of a printable Mandala Calendar.

I've also created a bunch of bookmarks and a few more ink drawings. At the end of November I surpassed 1000 sales, a goal I set when I started in April and didn't expect to reach before the end of the year.

I now have my own website, where my prices are 5% lower than on Etsy, since my website's fees are slightly lower than Etsy's. So if you like my coloring pages and you plan to pay with paypal, I definitely recommend buying from instead of Etsy. Also at Candy Hippie dot com, I offer free coloring pages and exclusive coloring pages which will not be available in the CandyHippie Etsy shop. More of those are coming soon!
