Health Matters……

BadBruiseBear and I were running in from the garage and my toe accidentally got under his paw as we were running and when a 100 pound dog steps on your foot (OUCH) The bruise has gotten worse since the photo! It was a “Bear” attack! tee hee! SoreThroatRemedyI just made a home made sore throat remedy that I got off Facebook from one of my friends. I can’t wait to try it but don’t want a sore throat though!

Winter Sore Throat Tea:

2 Lemons thoroughly cleaned and sliced
2 piece ginger about the size of your pointer or index finger & middle finger together sliced into coin sized pieces
Honey about 1 cup maybe more

In 12-16 oz jar combine lemon slices and sliced ginger. Pour honey (organic is best) over it slowly. Let the honey sink down around the lemon and ginger. Close jar & put in fridge, it will form into a jelly. To serve, spoon jelly into mug & pour boiling water over it.

You can store it in fridge for 2-3 months.

High Rise Window Washers…….

JustHangingOut1JustHangingOut2I marvel at these guys and their job!!!! “just hanging out”! tee hee! Oh my gosh they have to so not be afraid of heights!!!!!! Not be afraid to hang by ropes! I know there is so much to their job, getting their equipment on top of the building, setting up their ropes and rigging, safety harnesses etc.

They earn their pay in my opinion!!!! I bet the get to enjoy massive views on their jobs! Can you imagine the high winds they have to feel up there!!!! Yikes!

I will keep my feet firmly planted on the ground! :)

Crochet Happiness…..

RedWhiteDoilyMy red and white doily is turning out nicely!

Early this morning I took Bear and went to the store to do shopping for our groceries. I was walking towards the entrance and say my favorite checker outside yelling at some one. A young guy was running from the store pushing a shopping cart. She said that the guy just stole a whole cart full of items.

Employees are not allowed to chase after people, but another customer did, he chased after the kid and I called 911 and gave them  the particulars and the description.

A deputy showed up and I met him with the details and he said he would talk to the other customer and they would get the store video etc. The man that chased after the guy didn’t catch him but he brought back the shopping cart full of stuff as the kid abandoned it as I am sure he was scared.

I continued with my shopping and as I was leaving, my favorite checker thanked me so much for helping!

Just a reminder to all the ladies out there, remember to hold on to your purses as you shop!  Don’t leave them in your carts as it only takes one second of looking or picking up an item off the shelf and some one can snatch it out of your carts!

Even though I played a very small part in helping Fred Meyer it sure felt good to be a good samaritan as I know the gentlemen customer felt the same way too! It was our small way of being angels for the day!

No Wonder Grandpa Hated Juicy Fruit!

NotSoGoodGumThis brought back the memory of my Grandpa hating the smell of Juicy Fruit gum. I bought some and now I hate it too, not cuz of the smell but because it is like chewing a ROCK! It is the worst gum ever in my opinion! My poor jaws were sore for trying to chew the icky stuff!
