Good morning. Today is simply perfect. The sun is shining, and temps right now are in the sixties. Soon they will be in the low to mid eighties. It's a gorgeous day to be outside. I have two boxes of solar thingies that need to be washed before they can be put up on the porch rails. Maybe that would be a good project for today.
A couple days ago, some books that I had ordered arrived in the mail. I made a layout showing the books. They contain everything I need to know about staying healthy, eating good food and nourishing my creative urges to draw again.
Here are a few of the tips in this book for lowering your cholesterol. Eat lots of garlic, or take an over the counter garlic supplement. Eat fish two or three times a week. A tuna sandwich counts as a meal. Instead of snacking on potato chips, try munching on Kellogg's Raisin Squares (cereal, for roughage). Try taking Metamucil, one teaspoon two or three times a day to flush your system of cholesterol.
I firmly believe in a lot of the old fashioned cures. When I was a little girl, I stepped on a railroad spike. This made a nasty hole in my foot. (This is a good reason not to play on the railroad tracks!) My mother cut up a large potato, placed slices of the raw potato on the top and bottom of my foot, and then wrapped my foot with gauze. She replaced the potato slices as needed, and my foot healed nicely.
If you like owls, I found a wonderful free pattern on the web for making an owl basket. Using thick yarn keeps the basket sturdy. You can find the pattern by googling "free crochet owl basket pattern" or email me and I'll send you the pattern. Isn't this cute?
Do you want to feel good about people in general? Go visit Sean of the South, and read today's short story. You just gotta love this guy. Good people and beauty are everywhere, and he seems to find them all. I try to start every day by stopping by his blog first thing in the morning.
Today I have a new quick page for you. Is there someone in your life that you are missing? Most of us are missing someone so I thought I'd make a page for it. I hope you like it.
Here is your download link:
Now I think I'm going to refresh my cup of coffee and take it out on the porch. Maybe I'll crochet a while and listen to the birds. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
