Freeze that flour first!

Always freeze your flour before putting into the canister - kills the bug larvae. Flour doesn't "draw" bugs - the larvae are in it when you purchase. Since I have been doing this, I have had a canister of flour for years with never a bug!

Find something positive about yourself every day!

Find something positive about yourself every day!
Did your hair come out just right - your makeup? Do you like your fingers, toes, hands, feet? Your eyes, nose, mouth?

Black Bananas?

My dad came up with this idea - he slices apples and puts them in lemonade - and eats the slices during the week.

Fluctuations instead of weight gains.

'tis the season - - - eat within reason!

to say we won't indulge and/or overindulge is not realistic.

to eat within reason is realistic.
