At 6 a.m. I already posted a message, but I could not wait to send these two inspiring photos I found on Pinterest a long time ago. They both evoke old homestead memories when we took a bit of old and new and put it all together, before we ever knew anything about color coordination or matching.
It is a busy day for me as I will be cleaning up after hosting Ladies Bible Class yesterday. Anyone care to help? I was absent from the Wednesday evening Bible class at church due to some sniffles and a little sinus--signs of things in bloom--but am feeling fine. For those who suffer more seriously from sinus, try eliminating wheat and flour products, and high oxalate foods. I know someone who has done this and says she has not had any sinus trouble in a long time, and when she does tempt nature and eat something grain-related, or something high in oxalates, she feels the familiar twinge in her face and a sinus coming on. I am trying this and it is more effective than any other remedy, at least for me. Do a web search on oxalates to get a list of foods low in oxalates. Oxalates form crystals in the sinus membranes, causing pain. The same foods cause kidney stones. You can "kill two birds with one stone" on a low oxalate diet. It generally avoids rough foods and whole grains that cause the most trouble. Not all people can tolerate the same foods, so we must each do what suits us best! Notice it says "low" when referring to oxalates. It is not possible to eliminate every oxalate but we can aim for "low".
There was a time when the post delivered mail twice a day. As a common and frequent form of communication, the mail could really back up!
