The yarn today is one of my favorites, Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20. I have at least 60 skeins in my stash. A lot of those skeins are singletons, but I also have a handful or two of 2 or 3 skeins of the same color.
I did try the Spiced Apple Cider mix this morning, and it was actually pretty good. I am always dubious of powdered drink mixes like these, but I was pleasantly surprised. I think it has a lot of sugar in it though - it had 80 calories for one little cup.
On another note, my camera is working again. Turns out the battery died. It uses a lithium-ion rechargeable battery and when I pulled it out I could see that it had popped. The case did not rupture, but it was bulging slightly. Pretty good battery design. Lithium-ion batteries can be very dangerous, as we've seen in the news. In my business we actually have a battery safety program that all of our batteries have to go through - a series of safety and lifecycle tests to qualify them for use in our applications. I ordered a replacement and once it was charged up I installed it and the camera started working again.
