I read an article a few days ago about how in Norway, they actually enjoy the colder months and it explained the how and why of this perplexing way of being.  I for one have had the “oh, man…I hate winter” mindset for my whole adult life.  I know I’m not alone in this.  I …
I’ve added this knotted and crazy looking rhizome to my nightly routine.  I tell you what, at this point I am looking for anything to help me feel better!  What I do is cut off a very small cube of the ginger (around an inch in size) and have some decaf (exciting stuff!) green and …
I know it’s not quite Fall yet but the cooler mornings and seeing advertisements for Fall festivals and events has gotten me in the spirit!  I LOVE this time of year. I have already hung up my Fall front door wreath.  I made it a couple years ago w/ a wire frame and burlap ribbon. …
  I have jumped on the adult coloring bandwagon!  My curiosity got the best of me after seeing and reading about others that have started this.  When I was younger, I really enjoyed getting out my tin of crayons and coloring.  I was completely content spending hours doing this!  Then this activity faded away as …
You know those days when you NEED chocolate and in particular chocolate pudding?! Whelp that is me today.  This week was the one in my antibiotic cycle (for Lyme treatment) where I take the most antibiotics.  Needless to say this gives my body a blow and some chocolate pudding will help.  Just because.  I can’t …
I am now the owner of these very stylish (okay, not so much) orange glasses.  Why do I have these?  Well, I’ve read that blue light in the evening can mess up our circadian rhythm and sleep cycle.  I’ve been having some sleep issues and my way of improving my sleep prior to these glasses …
Doing this AIP (Autoimmune Protocal) diet wears on me sometimes.  It just isn’t easy!  I’ve been following this diet for around 6 months now.  For the most part I roll with it and have accepted that how I feel now from eating this way is SO worth not having the ease of eating that I …
I don’t want to be on my “soap box” but… companies need to STOP putting nasty/toxic ingredients in our personal care products (well, food too but won’t go there right now).  This whole bit about only a small amount of said toxic ingredient(s) is added in the product so no need to worry, WHATEVER!  Stepping …
My 7 year old is entered in mini 4-H this summer.  This is a 4-H program for 1st and 2nd graders.  Having personally been a 10 year 4-H member, it’s fun watching him be excited about the projects and fair activities.  To learn more about 4-H, click here. My oldest chose to do a dinosaur …
My family just returned from a mini-vacation in Chicago.  Our hotel was downtown which made it nice being able to walk around and check out the sites.  It was honestly a fantastic time!  Prior to getting there, I was concerned about finding restaurants where my whole family can find something to eat off the menu. …
