According to Chinese tradition it is said that the Rabbit brings a year in which you can catch your breath and calm your nerves. Sounds pretty darn good to me...how about you?
I am excited that the year I decided would be my jumping off point into my own business is also the Year of the Rabbit. It must be kismet.
To start off the New Year, I am going to share a few of my favorite things with you.
First up is this nifty little oil sprayer, called Misto. Of course having ones gall bladder out does make one look a little closer at their diet. As a way of eating a little lighter while not only saving money, but the environment as well, I invested in 2 of these sprayers....they work great! I have one filled with Olive oil and one filled with Canola Oil....no more Pam sprayers here.
Next up on that list is Morro Fleece Works. Remember all those bags of wool that I shipped out back in September? Well they have been rolling in at a steady pace and I have to tell you I am completely blown away by the quality of Shari's work. Many of the fleeces that I sent out were Merino blends and honestly not a nep to be found.
Blurry picture since I snagged it from their facebook page, but third on my list of favorites is Tastespotting. Not only is this the perfect time-waster, but it is a wonderful source of new recipes.
Looking back to #1.....tastespotting has helped me find some new and nutritious meals for my family. Of course there are some not so good for you treats as well, but that's ok now and then too.
Last on my list is my new favorite app for my ipad called Reeder. I was completely bummed when bloglines went away and found that I just wasn't reading many blogs any longer because I hate google reader.
Somehow I stumbled upon reeder in the app store and saw how many good reviews it had, so I plunked down my money hoping I wouldn't be disappointed. It is by far my favorite way to keep track of my RSS feeds now. I am even more excited to see that this will be an app for Mac's soon. Yes, I am moving into the world of Mac's.
As part of my Registration job, I have always had a PC that the club supplied for me. Now that I will be retiring from this position I will be returning the PC. I went back and forth between a PC and a Mac, but finally decided that now was the right time to make that jump over to a Mac.
See.....it's a new year all around for me and I'm very excited! I hope that you enjoy a few of my favorite things too. :-)
