This has been a break through for my Husband. He can not have wheat, gluten, or yeast, and since I have been making this spelt sour dough bread(successfully) he has been singing praises. Oh, to live without bread was a frightening thought for him.
My friend Tonya asked me if I would like to barter with her . She needed an iron board cover and she had something that I might like. I think bartering is wonderful, and many times a money saver for both party's.
I hope she will like this cover. I made it reversible, so that she can change the look once in a while.
She said "make it cheery, I have to look at it every day." She told me she irons every day for 15 min. What a great idea!
The great part about this cover is that you can just toss it into the wash and place it back onto the iron board and re- tie it.
Here's a wonderful, amazing remedy that I have made as part of our family's ongoing health plan.
Just six simple ingredients for this "wonder food" that will keep you healthy or quickly cure you when you're sick. I'm so thankful to John Gallagher from MountainRoseHerbs.com for sharing this recipe.
1/2 cup of Elderberry (I buy them at our local health food store)
1 cinnamon stick
1 Tablespoon of fresh ginger root (local fruit stand or any supermarket)
5 whole cloves
2 cups of water
1 cup of honey
Place the cinnamon stick, five cloves and 1 Tablespoon of peeled and cut ginger with 2 cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil.
Turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Strain and discharge the ginger,cloves and cinnamon stick. Add the honey and stir. Pour into a glass jar. Let cool, seal with a lid and refrigerate.
My husband swears by this syrup. He calls it Elderberry Wine :) Three times in the past 6 months he's come down with a very nasty sinus infection, which then travels into his chest. The type in years past where he required antibiotics to get over it. This year, each time he got sick, he took a shot of Elderberry syrup about every two-three hours until this little bottle was empty. Within a day or two he was all better. No antibiotics needed! Hooray!
Another success story is LilyBeth 4 years old. On Sunday she started with the sniffling, sneezing, runny nose, cough, etc. We gave her several teaspoons throughout the day on Monday and today she has no symptoms. Amazing!!!
Try this all natural herbal remedy. You won't regret it. And it taste so sweet, thats why my little ones and older ones like it so much :)
This is Tristan and LilyBeth's bedroom make over.The Room is very small 10 x12 feet. Stephanie(18) and Melanie(15) used this bunk bed when they where Tristan and LilyBeth ages, seven and four.
My Stan and I alway felt is was important that our children shared a room with another sibling. It teaches them to get along with someone else, teaches them to share and to be more considerate of others. After all, one day the will have to share a room with other roommates and probable marry someone very different in personalty, then they are. It was easy when we first had two boys and then two girls, but now we have one of each. So this room was a little challenge in the area of decor since LilyBeth likes pink, anything pink and Tristan is a true boy who likes dragons, cars and superheros.
Here is what we came up with. His and her space. Tristan sleeps "up stairs."
A couple of years back a very nice older lady taught me how to make these beautiful quilts.
This is his corner with his dresser and Hulk superhero picture. His fire spitting dragon is so cool, but LilyBeth was scarred of it, so we hung it behind the dresser where she could not see him from her bed.
Here is Tristan's favorite bear; he named him "Share Bear." :)
This is LilyBeth's bed. She sleeps "down stairs" :) along with her favorite doll, Baby Anna. She goes where ever Lily goes.
The lamp came from a dear sweet friend. Thank you Cherilee! And it fit's perfect on her dresser. I found this cute little dresser at a thrift store and it is perfect for her needs.
The dresser is made for small children and Lily can get to her clothes all by herself.
This beautiful handmade embroidery came from a yard sale for just one dollar.
