...who sent me "A Dyer's Garden" in the mail. It arrived safely and was in excellent condition from the bookseller. I gleefully opened it and devoured pictures of indigo and woad and all sorts of plants with my eyes (which is good it was only with my eyes, because I'm pretty sure they're mostly poison). My mom, the intrepid gardener, is very interested in teaming up with me to create a natural dyes section or several of the garden -- for which this book will be invaluable. So two people are definitely enjoying it, at least, in this household, and once dyes actually happen, well, hopefully the joy will just spread even farther afield.

This was an especially good day for it to arrive, as, with my immune system weakened by stomach!plague and a week and a half of not really eating much nutrients, I now seem to be getting an upper respiratory something. I probably picked it up in urgent care or something, as it's really the only time I've been out of the house, and there were definitely coughing people there.

So -- as I've no energy to knit or spin to speak of, I am left with pattern books, planning a natural dye section of the garden, internet friends, and video games. Not so bad, really, *knock wood*. At least it's an excellent excuse to avoid the Mount Everest of Things to Be Done.

Lots of good thoughts to all of you.

Ooh, that sounds awesome! I don't know that I'm interested in dying, per se, but I love talking and thinking about it, so yay for more textile geekiness!!

~~~sending warm healing vibes~~~ Rest, dear. Hope you feel better soon.
