bucky bliss




so i had this little pain. a crick. in my neck..and it kept on getting worse and worse. i would move my head at night and craaack! very uncomfortable! and i kept on thinking...i really want one of those fancy buckwheat pillows. so i went to the fancy greenie store here in gloucester..and boy they were so pricey. then i got smart. i went to the co-op and got a ton of buckwheat hulls. well not a ton but about 6 lbs. and away we go. sorted through the fabric stash of flannels and sewed two up quickly. alex and i thought we'd give them a try..and i swear we were both out in five minutes. and what a blissful sleep. we woke up a few hours later revived! stayed up late last night making a full sized pillow with my crick in mind. i have to tell you - i slept like a baby in a buckwheat and lavender induced slumber. when i awoke this morning the crick was gone. really.
i'm ready for the bucky revolution.
are you?

I vote you to be the cutest blog I have seen all day! It's really childlike and whimsical. Great job.

Those pillows look great - I'd like to get a hold of some buckwheat hulls and try that myself! Are they an average item for a health food store to carry, I wonder.

Those are SO cute! I think I might give that a try. I have a hard time finding something comfortable for my neck.
