Just a Few Points

  • I believe the old art of canning is on its way to lost.  So I am doing my part to revive and continue it.  Monday my mother taught me to can tomatoes.  I am looking forward to Grandma's homemade tomato soup all winter long.  Mmmm-mmmm good!       


  •  Each summer I get hoof heels.
    Not exactly my foot, but a very fair representation of it.
    It is an unfortunate occurrence that I have tried many times to fix.  Lotion, socks, pumice... you name it, I have tried it.  I recently learned a trick that could solve my problem.  Stirdex.  Rub it on the hoof heels, slather liberally with lotion, and then put socks on to seal in the moisture.  I am on day two and already the results are phenomenal.  Yay!   
    Not exactly my feet.  But they are getting there.
  • I am slightly embarrassed to admit I have worse skin right now than I did as a teen.  I don't get it.  I thought my skin should have cleared up by now.  I look like a greasy 13 year old who eats far too much pizza.  So, as a last result, that Stridex is working double duty.  Hopefully it will fix it, because no one wants to be thirteen again.
  • I finally got the patio cleaned off, and it is ready for dinner.                   
    It is beautiful!  I spent the whole day cleaning.  I am now exhausted.  Really.  But it is a good kind of exhausted, you know?  Lots of satisfaction of a job well done.  I can now spend more time in the backyard without guilt ensuing my soul with what I needed to be doing.  Guilt free back yard! 
    Now, however, every time I see my car port, the guilt is there.  So I just close my eyes as I pass through to the backyard.  I will work on the car port next week.
  • Jeffrey is sick.  The poor guy has a low grade fever, cough and scratchy throat.  Which is sad, because most likely it means at least one other person in the family will catch it, if not all.  But what can you do, really?
Zoo tomorrow.  Keith and I are excited.  We are going to meet my sister in law and her kids.  I love wearing my kids out.  They will nap so well afterward.  Perfect.
