Hardly any pain or stiffness today, even in my right hand. Applied blue polish, but found it wasn't dark enough to more or less match my lapis pendant (the real one). Have to remember to take the pendant for comparison next time I shop. On the plus side, wearing polish really does seem to prevent some of the breaking & tearing of nails that I've been having, though the polish doesn't last long since I use my hands so much.
Made up a new batch of chai spice mix; should probably pull out my recipes & make cardamom cake or scones to use up the jar, I can't remember *how* old it is (though if I were an out-&-out chai fanatic I'd buy fresh spices). Also need think of something to use up the Creole seasoning mix while I'm at it. Mom's sensitive to cayenne pepper, so better not to try it on pork chops or chicken, but it might be OK in a stew.
