Coffee, Anyone?

Ok, I JUST read the latest research on coffee in the medical section of Readers Digest. The science on coffee has been all over the place, and now the latest thinking is that there are many health benefits to coffee. Recommended intake-No more than 3 cups. If you are a big coffee drinker, think about it and check out some of the research and maybe consider a cup of decaf instead of that fourth cup.

Say It Isn’t True!!!

Okay, so you are not going to believe this, but some mean, horrible person actually sent pornography to my comment section. Why in the world do people do this? People who want/need that kind of thing certainly would not come to a BLOG that deals with health, insight, and decor, would they? Am I missing something? I guess I just don’t get it. Don’t do that any more-OK?

OMG-More Tee Shirts!

  1. “This Year I am giving my opinion instead of gifts-Interested?”

2. “Which part of the Bible explains how to change water into wine? Asking for a friend!”

3. “You know you are old when you go to an antique show and people start to bid on you!”

4. “I Read-I Know Things.”

5. “Irony-The Complete Opposite of Wrinkly.”

These are great-Send me some more!!

T- Shirt Stuff Keeps Rollin’ In

Some cat lovers complained about all of the “Dog” quotes so here are a few “Cat” slogans to make up for it.

A Good Book, A Cat On My Lap, Life Is Sweet!

Real men can and do love cats.

No, I am not shedding, it’s my cat.

If the earth was actually flat, cats would have pushed everything off of it by now, right?

Keep the T-shirt fun going. Love it!

Stop Dragon Your Feet!

Stop “Dragon” your feet and read a book. This is just one of the ways to beat the “I am so sad at home” blues.

Adventure: Clive Cussler is very hard to beat. He has written sooo many books and most of them are in series so if you don’t like one genre there are at least five others. Favorite? The Oregon Files series

Just for fun: I have read them all from book one to the next to last. I have ordered the final and it has not come yet. Yes, of course I mean the Stephanie Plum series starting with One For the Money and going on to I believe it is book 24 or 25. All of them are a hoot and you will actually laugh out loud prticularly at Lula and Connie!

Westerns: Western books come and go but I have a friend who is a real fan of the genre and he swears that there is still nothing better than Zane Grey and Louie L’Amour. Oldies but goodies my friend says.

Gentle Fiction: Has to be the Mitford series. Any of the Amish books are good too. (Kingsford)

Read to the kids: Boy, I really love The Magic Tree House series. Mary Pope Osborne is excellent and her husband also writes companion books that tell true historical facts surrounding each of her fiction stories. These are “read aloud” stories in my opinion. Stuff happens that is fun to talk about with your child. (Magic School Bus not so much. Too much detail for the average child.)

Cook Books: Yes. some people (Me!) actually read cookbooks for fun and try new recipes on their long suffering significant others over and over again. Best source for cookbooks that are really interesting? Thrift shops, of course!!

So, quit “dragon” your feet and READ!

Get Out!!

It’s cold, foggy, and dreary today. This is the perfect time to NOT sit in front of the TV/fireplace/computer etc. Take the opportunity to get off your butt and go outside. Bundle up if you need to do that. I will be in my warm hat, zip up the front Lands End padded coat, and warm pants. We are going stick hiking on the Cushwa Trail next to the C&O Canal!

PS-My warm hat is an “Agnes” hat from Despicable Me and stick hiking means we take our hiking sticks a la Bilbo Baggins.

Close Your Eyes

Start 2021 with something lovely. Close your eyes and picture a beautiful scene. Think of anything that has made you sigh and think “Oh, how absolutely beautiful.” Breathe deeply and imagine yourself in your scene. Do this for 30 seconds. Feel better? Do this on a regular basis and, trust me, you will stay sane, lower your blood pressure, and enjoy your own company much more!
