Flu Season, Are You Ready?


People have been making Elderberry Syrup for years.
The benefits are amazing.
The berries help prevent and treat flu, colds, coughs, sinus pain. 
Well, the lists goes on.

click here for more info.

 I have been taking a tablespoon a day,
since the end of September.
Not even a cold!

Tom on the other hand,
 just finished with the worst bronchitis!
He didn't take the syrup.
(no, it wasn't part of a scientific experiment, even though he thinks it was)


 I ordered my dried berries from Amazon.
The process is very easy.
Boil, strain, add honey, pour into a bottle
and refrigerate.


It's amazing, only one tablespoon.

🔹*****🔹

Yesterday, we received a little bit of snow.
Not much, but enough
to cover the ground and make everything white.


This neighborhood boy (green jacket) was out 
shoveling our neighborhood sidewalks.
It was so thoughtful.


Here's Tom taking out the trash.
Shorts and flip-flops!
At least he has a hat and coat on!!


"Oh Tom!
I have something for you,
And it's really good for you!!"

I think I'll order more berries today!

Before and After Pictures


Our living room was a wash of white 
You couldn't tell where the ceiling ended and the wall started. 
And if you take a picture of anyone on the white couch, 
everyone is washed out!
It looked like we were in a hospital.

Solution, call my friend over in Seattle,
 who is an Interior Designer!

Liz said, "Paint the wall."
I asked, "What color?"
She said, "Blue"

So that is what we did.

~Before ~

~After~

~Before~
~After~

We were also, having problems with the flat paint under our counter.
Little People's jeans would rub off,
leaving smug marks all along the wall.


Solution....

We added bead board all along the wall and under the counter.
Problem solved!


There was one more paint SITUATION.
Where I sit and read, 
I have a knitting basket filled with
books, pens and pencils.

 You can't really see the situation in the picture below,
 but oh.... it's there.


Someone used a pencil from my basket to 
draw on the wall.




He didn't sign his name but 
we know who it was.

The Artist

I'm keeping his work of art.
Nobody is painting this part of the wall!!
It's a masterpiece, in my eyes.

It's A New Year




It was the start of the New Year, 
 I went for my annual morning walk.
Only today, it was January 1st.

Burr it's cold out!


The sky was unusually weird.
This cloud hoovered over my path. 
Off in the distance
you could see the sun peeking through.


It didn't last to long.
Long enough to wonder if I would be
"Going Home" soon!
I did make it home but not 
the one I was thinking about.

~~~~****~~~~

"But concerning that day and hour no one knows, even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only."

Matthew 24:36
