I started physical therapy for my hips today. I am sore as hell, so I took an old, sturdy, dish towel, and stitched it together, and filled it with rice, a handful of cloves, and some dried orange peel. And now I have a heat pack! (I had one before, but my son’s much loved girlfriend thought it took 10 minutes to heat in the microwave... did you know that burning rice and cloth smells terrible?!) It only took me about an hour to stitch it all by hand, which is awesome.

Why, yes, I am all pleased with myself, why do you ask? :D
