How is everyone today? Reilly's 17th birthday yesterday. Quinn back from Sioux Lookout trip at 2 a.m, going on Rivers trip today. Learning lots. The other 2, Brenna and Sean are working at Sobeys. A little quiet around here with just Reilly home. Not doing much today. Still in my housecoat. Just got my Swanson order, wasn't expecting it until tomorrow. So happy about that! Have a happy Sunday, stay warm.

Cold All the Time? Here's Help
Do you feel cold even when your home is warm? We can help…
Feeling chilly is a common complaint, especially for women in midlife and beyond but also for some men. Age-related changes, such as slower metabolism and loss of muscle mass, cause the body to produce less heat.
But here is a surprising thing that will help you feel less cold—strength training to build your muscles. Work those muscles out, and you will naturally feel warmer, even on days when you don’t work out. You’ll look more buff, too.
Cold intolerance also can be associated with some health conditions such as underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), low iron levels and fibromyalgia.If you frequently feel chilly and have other symptoms, such as fatigue, talk to your physician—you could have one of these conditions.

Oh, I know this so well. My biggest regret is not following my passion when I was 18. I wanted to be a doctor ever since I was a little girl and could read. I didn't follow my passion as I thought I wasn't smart enough. All my life I have helped people in whatever job I have had with health issues. So do what you love and yes it can be scary to make the changes but do it anyway.

I don't know if you have heard about this. Our family uses this remedy all the time. I learned it from my naturopath. It works wonders!
THE COLD AND WET SOCK REMEDY
This is a great treatment for all sorts of infections and inflammations in the upper body. It is simple to do and you don't need anything but some socks and some water.
The wet sock treatment is best if repeated for three nights in a row if you're suffering from any of the following symptoms: sore throat or any inflammation or infection of the throat, neck pain, ear infections, headaches, migraines, nasal congestion, upper respiratory infections, coughs, bronchitis, and sinus infections.
To do the wet sock treatment, you'll need:
1 pair white cotton socks
1 pair thick wool socks
Take a pair of cotton socks and soak them completely with ice cold water. Be sure to wring the socks out thoroughly so they do not drip.
Warm your feet first. This is very important as the treatment will not be as effective and could be harmful if your feet are not warmed first. Warming can be accomplished by soaking your feet in warm water for at least 5-10 minutes or taking a warm bath for 5-10 minutes.
Dry off feet and body with a dry towel.
Place ice cold wet socks on feet. Cover with thick wool socks. Go directly to bed. Avoid getting chilled.
Keep the socks on overnight. You will find that the wet cotton socks will be dry in the morning.
This treatment acts to reflexively increase the circulation and decrease congestion in the upper respiratory passages, head, and throat.
It has a sedating action and many patients report that they sleep much better during the treatment.
This treatment is also effective for pain relief and increases the healing response during acute infections.

Good morning! I hope you had an enjoyable even though somber day yesterday. We also watched a couple of World War 2 shows on History channel; learned a few things I didn't know.
I have to rant here a bit. Incompetent people everywhere. Watching the news, spelling mistakes galore. A major issue with our computer/telephone/TV provider that is totally their fault. People just seem to be not aware or have common sense these days.
I know that cellphone use is crazy. I did read in the Alive magazine that when their group goes out for dinner, everyone puts their cellphones in the middle of the table. The first one to reach or pick up theirs has to pay the whole tab.
Also, I am still looking for a job and it seems to me that the reason I am not getting one is that I am older with more experience and a better work ethic. Everyone insists on hiring younger poeple.
Anyway, enough. I hope you have a wonderful day. It has snowed here but not much thank goodness.
