Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Sadly, this is the time of year that takes a toll on our little old lady bodies.
Okay...I won't group us all together using that phrase...old lady.
The Farmer's Almanac is so much fun to read, and there is a wealth of info in them that I find fascinating. The website, too, is full of good, old-fashioned, grandma wisdom. Love it, love it, love it~
Here's an article that is worth sharing:
Take steps to prevent winter illness! Here are three commonsense reminders:
1. Wash your hands! The #1 defense requires 20 seconds of rigorous rubbing.
2. Humidify inside and out. Keep your body well hydrated and your indoor air humidified. Add moisture to the air of your wood-heated home by hanging laundry indoors, keeping a lot of houseplants, and setting steamers on the stoves that release moisture gradually into the surrounding air.
3. Eat your vegetables. Increase your daily intake of green, red, yellow, and white vegetables.
