My Favorite Goodies on the Web this Week

So, I know I've been really quiet, the problem with trying to write, edit, design, and have a family BUT I feel as if I have been neglecting my followers. So, I will be starting a weekly post where I share some of my favorite things I've come across this week on the web. Not sure how many to do, this is an experiment, so why don't you guys let me know if this was too short, too long, or just right okay? Thanks!

So here's the first one. Now who out there actually remembers Q*Bert? Bill and Ted? Well Pop! has come out with these lovelies:


Here's where you can find out more about them: Coming Soon: Q*Bert Pop!, Bill & Ted Pop!s, and MLP Mystery Minis!

My second favorite item on the web this week, the book Full Catastrophe Living (Revised Edition): Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness by by Jon Kabat-Zinn 


Even though the book is not new, it was mentioned to me by my urologist on Monday after he told me I have a benign cyst on both my kidneys as well as a small stone against the one on my fight kidney.  I'm also on medication for blood pressure, which means most OTC drugs are out the window, so when I am in pain or sick I have to bear through it. He suggested I read this book and give it a try. So, I'm reading it and so far I am really into the concept. Will keep you updated.

And for number three, Brown Sugar-Spiced Grapefruit. Saw someone eating this on the television and had to look it up, doesn't it sound amazing? Doesn't it look amazing? I can't wait to pick up some and give it a try!

And finally, who doesn't like dragon scales on clothes? Well what about on a pair of fingerless gloves? This patter has definitely made my wishlist, and you can see why:


Dragonscale Gloves by Rachel Barlow on Ravelry are just so cool, and different, and right up my alley. Maybe someday I will make myself a pair, perhaps in a purple variegated.

Well, there we go, my favorite things this week. Hope you found something that interests you and please, if you find something you think I might like, share it in the comments! I would love to see what you found.
