Roses for Wednesday


I noticed on some of the art-poster sites where you can get paintings for your slide shows and blogs, websites, etc. that there is also
a little "print" icon. This means, I suppose, that it is apparently alright to print these things, for your own use. (I'm always worried about copyright) This is called "Pink and Yellow Roses" from Allposters. .
To add to the previous article about moods: I've heard the common expression that people have "good days and bad days," and of course, we all realize that life is part good and part bad. However I think we can exert a great deal more control over moods, because our days can be good or bad depending upon what we put into them, and how we handle the wind and the waves that come our way. As I said in the online homemaking conference, when we are faced with insurmountable duties, we can either have a break down or we can roll up our sleeves and tackle whatever needs to be done. If you are alone, a breakdown doesn't seem so harmful, but if you have other people around, depending on your leadership, you might, like many of our forebearers, have to put on a stiff upper lip. When my daughter gets overwhelmed by housework, she calls me on her cell phone (her husband got her a head set so she could use her hands while phoning), and we talk each other through some of these messes. The tasks seem to go faster when you are talking to someone!
If you think your moods are being effected by your over all health, check out

You can also sign up for the newsletter, which keeps you updated on the things to avoid that are dangerous to your physical and emotional health. Keep in mind that there is a big difference between "medical" care and HEALTH care. Good health will have a great deal to do with the emotions, and involves things like adequate rest, food as close to nature as possible, peaceful living, good water, and many other things. These kinds of things do not require insurance or a great deal of money.
(Note: in reading Dr. M.'s articles, be aware that he often starts with an article about conventional medicine at the beginning of the page, and then posts his comments afterwards. You might end up thinking he agrees with a lot of the liberal views in the medical articles, but read the entire page and you will see how he refutes some of these claims.)

Thank you so much for the links. I battle with moods and energy levels every day with my bipolar II. I come here everyday to read your blog! I love it! Thank you so much! As a sahm of 2, this is my morning inspiration!

If you become an affiliate at Allposters, you can post any of their pictures without worrying about copyright, and you'll make a little money if someone clicks through and orders a copy of one of them. Another place you can do this is www.art.com. Though I don't know if you'd want to promote these sites, considering some of the other "art" they sell.

I believe "peaceful living" is very important. Life is so crazy these days. I have heard women boast about how they work during 10 hours a day, then come home and rush through household duties until late at night. That way, they "have it all" ("all" includes exhaustion, frustration, feeling overwhelmed and nervous breakdowns).

I applied to become an affiliate but somehow it seems complicated. I entered the information and got an email back, which led me back and then ....nothing.

Mrs. Sherman --

When you went back to Allposters, did it have you logged in already (with "hello" and your name at the top)? If it does that, all you have to do is click on "Linkbuilder". If not, you need to click on "Affiliates", then log in.

Hope this helps.

I really do think you should consider writing a book. I have a book called *the spirit of lovliness* I think you could write a book like this so easily. I honestly think you should consider it and I wish you would.

I appreciate that. I have one book in the works that is going to be published in a few days, and I don't want to get too many projects started. I also have two others--one on Tea and another one about happiness--but have put it all on hold til I get the one I'm working on, completely out of the way. Our family is getting the editing straightened out and should have it out there soon. It is called "Just Breathing the Air" and it is about my family that went to the wilderness in the 1940's and 50's and built a home there and raised a family. It is not about homemaking or afternoon tea, but the stories in it will make you smile. I will announce it when it is ready for the public to buy.

I think it's so nice that you are still available to talk your daughter through her tough homemaking tasks. My mother, 2 states away, works in an office during the day, but almost everyday I email back and forth with her, and she encourages me in a similar way. I was always really close to my mother, and I hope and pray my daughters will feel the same way about me as they grow up.

Here's an interesting article on the importance of vitamin B12. I never realized it can have such a dramatic impact on health, mental health included.

Also, soy, which is in so many processed foods, can depress the thyroid.
