My shirt was soaked by the time I was done. Oddly enough, a few peanuts brought me out of it.
    That's really scary, Ted. Peanuts contain protein, so it would make sense that they made you feel better.

    LadyV, from what I can gather, it was the fat that did it. Because keto burns fat, then people who are on keto have to taken in enough fat daily, of they get sick. Like I did.

    Today is my Friday. I'm so happy. I need a weekend.

    I hope everybody stays safe today on Friday the 13th. Especially if we have an Templar Knights running around.

    Today is my day off and I'm dealing with a few wonderful issues. But I'll be ok.

    It's a cloudy, gloomy day here. I was hoping for sun to do a photo shoot but it's not happening.

    Good morning, Royals!

    I managed to sleep in, but I went to bed rather late last night, so I didn't really get much more sleep. I stayed out later at my games meetup than I initially planned, but I was enjoying myself, so it was worth it. Today, I'm going to the mall to buy a Halloween costume. Then I have to go to a viewing for a family friend who passed away earlier this week.

    Pandemic is the franchise of games. They have a Cthullu version.

    Yep it saturday

    Got 20 more sap taps put together 190/400 ... should be ready for a good spring. Found another neighbor interested in me tapping his trees ... I might get to 400 or 500 taps yet (should equal 10- 15 gals of syrup) Still got to get my evaportor set up and next year I'll most likely get the sugar shack done.

    2X4's all around !!!

    Prince Porter is a maple syrup master. It's a key ingredient in 2 X 4's, I think.

    I'll pass on the 2 x 4's, but I love me some real maple syrup on my pancakes and waffles.

    And right now, I don't eat much sugar anyways, so it's cool.

    Good Sunday, Your Majesty.

    Good Sunday, dear Royals.

    If anyone cares, I'll be hiding in my suite.

    My fellow Royals, I hope all is well.

    I'm having a rough day. But I'm working now and hoping it takes my mind off it.

    That doesn't bother me in the least, considering I may never come out of my suite again.

    Good evening, Royals!

    I went to a local farm this morning. My mom and I bought all sorts of goodies, including some of the most delicious butter cookies I've ever tasted. They're shaped and colored like pumpkins.

    That's awesome, LadyV. I used to love going to various farm festivals in the fall because I could get the freshest cider possible.
