HAPPY MONDAY MORNING TO YOU....

Happy Monday Morning to you all...
I was thinking to myself this morning,.(that's scary)  Why do I love Mondays so much??
 I decided it is because you wake up renewed after having a day of Worship and being in the Presence of the Lord...
Then there is the whole week ahead of you....
God willing.. 

Anyway, I have been wanting to give you this little hint that I have tried and found true for sore throats and colds..
A little natural remedy..
This time of year our little ones and ourselves are catching some of the old germs out there....
Sore throats, cold and flu....
Of course, if your little ones are really sick they may need a doctor but I find if I get a scratchy sore throat and take this it really works and does not develop in anything scary..
You just boil some water as if you were making some tea and cut a lemon in half and squeeze in a couple tablespoons, a good squirt of honey and a bit of fresh ginger...
It will need cooled for the kids but just sip away on that and hopefully it will relieve your soreness.....lol....

Also ..
I thought I would post a couple of pics of what old empty nesters do on a BUSY  Saturday...
When you are retired folks think that you must have a lot of spare time, eh? 
Well, this is a few pics to show you our past Saturday...
My sweet husband trying to get some of the snow off of the roof.. Our house is shaped in a U and it blows and piles up on there...
A job well done, Terry..
After feeding the birds he of course deserves a little recreation..
God had given us such a beautiful day....
Sammi (our inherited dog) was wondering...


WHICH WAY DID HE GO????  LOL...

Meanwhile, I am inside watering my sprouts..

I told you I was an old hippie  (the good kind)
This is only the third day for them... I just put them on the windowsill to show you...
I love sprouts in wraps.. They are sooooo good for you..
And so easy...
Just pick up some seeds at your health store ( alalfa, clover, onion, or mung beans, mustard or cress)   and soak them overnite ...
Use a large bottle and some cheesecloth or buy a sprout bottle like mine that has a wire seive for a cover.
Then  gently rinse twice a day and keep in a warm dark spot...
I actually  put mine on the counter...
Lay your bottle on the side and  in a few days you have lovely living sprouts that are full of nutrients...
Use them in your salads, sandwiches or wraps....

Oh, then I did some cleaning and worked on crafts..
A busy day.... a lovely day...a blessed day...
Thank you, Lord...

Well, girls that is probably enough for now..
I wanted to thank you all for stopping by.. There are twice as many visitors lately and that is WONDERFUL..
Also, just wanted to say how DELIGHTED  I am when you take the time to leave a wee comment.. 
Makes my day..

Have a lovely BLESSED week and I will be back soon..
Hugs....

  4. Thanks so much for the home remedy, Dr. Faye~ you couldn't have posted it at a better time. I'm feeling a little under the weather today, and this might just be what I need to perk back up.
    Love your hubby's snowmobile~ that looks like fun. We have fun on the 4 wheeler in the snow, but we don't really go anywhere on it, we just do donuts. *ha*
    Your sprouts are coming along nicely!

  5. This is a great remedy...our family has been using this for several years and our grandchildren call it "bear juice"...because of the honey that comes in that little bear bottle. I normally buy local Pure Raw Honey, which is better for you. I also drink the black tea and honey...its better than the green tea...in my opinion.

  6. Love the sore throat remedy. We have been using hot tea and honey and lemon for sore throats, flu, sniffles...even when we are down with somthing and feel achy. Lots of times on a cold winter afternoon we make a spot of tea and add honey and lemon to it. Oh..it tastes so good and it warms the soul!

    Your hubby is doing a fine job unloading the snow off of the roof. Nice that he has a "cool" snowmobile to ride!
