No Gentlemen any more!!
So what has happened to all the Gentlemen?? I tell you what. I had to go into two different restaurants tonight and order food. One right next to the other one, walking distance. So I go into the Chinese restaurant, pick up my order , go next door to the Fish House and get my order there. When I turned to go out of the fish restaurant There were 2 men standing next to the door. Here I was with both hands full and do you know not one of them offered to move and open the door for me. UGGGGG!! What has happened to men opening doors for women, and helping out when they see a woman with her hands full. So men WHAT happened to being gentlemen?? I know women can be independent and such,,but GEEZE!! help a lady out when you can. Just because we are in 2017 doesn't mean manners was thrown out with the bath water. Where are all the gentlemen at?? WHERE!!!
Today couldn't have been more fitting. Today's photo is to be of Home Remedies. As of last night my lil guy became sick with cold like symptoms. You know the coughing, stuffy nose, fever, chills and so on. So what does this mama do? Well I slather him up last night in a homemade chest rub made from essential oils. Today I have made sure to keep the chest rub on him and have also put some Stress Away on him so it would help him to rest. But here is today's picture. When people get sick around here we try to use something that we have on hand instead of running straight to a doctor and creating a bill. So in the picture above there is Raw Honey (local), Apple Cider vinegar, Lemon Oil, Stress away oil, Lavender Oil, Peppermint Oil and Panaway Oil. These items and more that I have are used in several different ways. I have said in earlier post that when my family can be organic, we do. I try to buy the things that we can afford to be organic when I find it on sale. There a…
Hello friends,,Its been a while since I have been on here. Sorry. It has just been a whirl wind of stuff for me. I have been busy busy busy, and then there is the holiday thing too. It really changed for me this year. Lots of stuff, too much to mention. Plus I fell into sort of a depression missing my mom this year. Last year she passed away, but i rushed through everything to get through it. But this year it really hit me and on top of that my whole family life changed. I realized that it got smaller. The influential people that I grew up with is no longer here for holidays. I have became the adult and Elder in my family. The Elders that are left in my family don't come around anymore. It's sad I know.
But any who!!!! I just wanted to pop in and touch base with you all. How was your holiday? I pray it was a good one for you. How are you all spending your new year. We were supposed to be in church and preacher hubby was to preach at two churches tonight for watch service, but…
Well today has just been one of those days. You know where you getup and think "I'm going to do something productive today" and that is as far as it goes. I did however get two kitchen cabinets cleaned out. More space to just fill back up , RIGHT!!
SO any ways after a tedious three hrs of homeschooling we finally got it all accomplished with only taking one hour away of tablet time. Oh and you would have thought I had killed him. It broke his heart, especially since I stuck to the punishment. Anyway off topic,,I am rambling. As I sat down to rest I got to thinking of this blog and how certain topics do better than others. Got me to thinking about my posts. Then I come to the realization,, a ah ha moment, that sometimes when I write i'm just too straight forward.
It just sort of gets put out there. Sometimes I have not sympathy on the subject or sometimes I don't show grace. The bible says this about Grace::
1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even s…
