What to do, What to do?

I know a lot of you are snowed in and we are...well, rained in by a nasty storm.
So what do you do when you're stuck inside?
Noooo, not clean, it's the weekend after all.
We're suppose to relax and rejuvenate for the up coming week...
yeah, yeah that never happens here either.

But by chance you want to do something a little different, I
came across these and thought maybe someone would like to try drawing.
Yeah, I've tried but...well, let's just say I'm not good at drawing.
But there is also
 Origami, Dragon making, and even a paper airplane to try your hand at.
Thought maybe the kiddos would enjoy trying their hand at these :)

***Remember you can click on the pics to make them larger ♥








How about Dragons?
These are from my weekly Dover Sampler.
Just in case the kiddo's get bored ;)












Or some Origami?




Paper Airplanes anyone?









Whatever you do, HAVE FUN!!

A Man and His Wife.....

A MAN and his wife, moved back home to West Virginia, from Ohio.

The husband had a wooden leg, and to insure it back in Ohio cost them $2000 per year!

When they arrived in West Virginia, they went to an insurance agency to see how much it would cost to insure his wooden leg.

The agent looked it up on the computer and said: '$39.'

The husband was shocked and asked why it was so cheap here in West Virginia to insure it because it cost him $2000 in Ohio!

The insurance agent turned his computer screen to the couple and said, 'Well, here it is on the screen, it says: Any wooden structure, with a
sprinkler system above it, is $39... You just have to know how to describe it!

( HILLBILLIES know how "to git'er done")

EATING FRUIT by Dr OZ

This is informative!
by Dr Oz 



We all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it up and popping it into our mouths. It's not that easy. It's important to know how and when to eat fruit.
 
What's the correct way to eat fruit?


IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUIT AFTER A MEAL! FRUIT SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.

Eating fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.


FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.
 Let's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it's prevented from doing so.


In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach, and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.


Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You've heard people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. Fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas. Hence, you bloat!


There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruit, you have the Secret of Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and normal weight.


When you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT the concentrated juice from the cans. Don't drink juice that has been heated. Don't eat cooked fruit; you don't get the nutrients at all. You get only the taste. Cooking destroys all of the vitamins.


Eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit-fast to cleanse your body. Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say how radiant you look!


KIWI: Tiny but mighty, and a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E and fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange!
 AN APPLE a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants and flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C, thereby helping to lower the risk of colon cancer, heart attack and stroke.
 STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits and protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

 
EATING 2 - 4 ORANGES a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent and dissolve kidney stones, and reduce the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. Also a key source of lycopene, the cancer-fighting oxidant. Also found in watermelon: Vitamin C and Potassium.

 
GUAVA and PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, good for your eyes.
 Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!

Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you've just consumed, which slows digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.


A serious note about heart attacks.


HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they're asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Be careful, and be aware. The more we know, the better our chance to survive.


Who Knew??
Except maybe Carmen??

I found Shoes! I found Shoes!!!

YAY! I found shoes for the wedding!!
*A big sign of relief*

I hadn't been seriously looking,
 just looking if I happen to be in a store with shoes.
But I decided it was getting pretty close and I better get
serious.
I popped into Payless Shoe source and lo and be hold there they were!!


I tried them on and they were comfy!! Yes, comfy!


And I could even walk in the heels!
Now remember I don't do dresses or heeled shoes...
at least not for many, many years!


They were meant to be.
 I had been perusing Etsy and ran across some fabric flower shoe clips.


I thought that depending on what style shoe I ended up with I may be able to buy some and clip them onto the shoes. See, how they are even similar.
Yes, they were meant to be♥

And it just happened it was the past day for BOGO.
So I got a purse for the wedding half off.
 


I was so pleased to have gotten those two things out of the way
and fairly easily.

Now, onto to undergarments.....oh joy....
