Thanks!


My D.K.16 complained of her feet hurting while we walked. I said, "You need to get some new shoes like MINE!"
She said, "eh, but I don't want to pay $65 dollars for a pair of shoes!"
I said, "I know, but if they make your feet feel better....."
She said, "yeah, but."

And I said, "How about I pay part of it and you pay part of it?"
And she said,
"Okay!"

lol, that solved her problem real quick.

Now, if we can just find a 'cordwainer' !

Just kidding...going to Dunham's and getting some comfort foam shoes, not ones made out of 'new leather'.

(I looked it up. smile.)

Today I learned that I am, indeed, much stronger than before.
We were walking a lot today at a lake. And my husband pointed out that I was walking WAYYY BETTER than last year.

I was doing well last year, but my new shoes have certainly helped me to last longer while walking.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Today I learned what a meerschaum pipe is. (watching National Treasure with my son).
I also learned the name of a tree on my property, Tulip Poplar. I don't think it grew flowers last year and looked it up. Tulop Poplar's grow flowers at 15-20 years old.

I'm relieved to hear the directions for the jewelry. =) Thank you for letting me know. I was concerned.

I learned today that the outside of my house smells really good when I'm doing laundry. Too bad the wonderful smell isn't in the house.

Today I learned several things.....about me.

I learned that I am not happy with the way I've been caring for myself & have resolved to start doing a better job again. I can do better & I know it so there's no reason not to.

I learned that I really can do a little planning & save money on my groceries. Walmart & Aldi were both cheaper on some of the things that I planned to buy but Schnucks buy one get one free sale beat them both. Today I shopped at one store, got everything I wanted & saved money. That's a win-win situation.

I learned that I can no longer carry all of my groceries into the house at one time. I also learned that's OK because I need the extra steps.

I learned that I have a lot more gray hair & I think I like it. I think I will let it grow out. I may change my mind but for now, that's the plan.

It's still early so I may learn something more useful later today.

Thanks for sharing this link. I see that they used fire to melt the plastic. I think I can do this. Between you, MCJULIEO & me, no plastic bottle will be safe.

Babies in Norway Nap Outside
Itís common practice in Nordic countries for babies to nap outside. Parents in Norway, Sweden, and Finland believe that sleeping outside offers health benefits.

I am learning that I appreciate the stage my life is in. My kids are old enough that I'm a bit free-er to actually get things done around the house.
I just asked to be on the 'possible help' list at church for funeral/food serving, before this my family was my ministry because I wasn't willing to spread myself too thin.
Also, being on the prayer list is giving me 'card' opportunities, which is something I always wanted to do. I love making someone happy by letting them get something GOOD in the mail. and I enjoy making my own cards.
I have an apartment in the back of the house that is currently my Genealogy/craft room. It's becoming more usable as I organize my mom's research and photoalbums. So now I have a space for Bible Study and Writing...including CARD writing.
This will be nice. :)

And we all lived happily ever after...

I learned that I cannot roll over the chicken netting in my riding mower, EVEN if the blade is NOT engaged. grrrrrr emoticon emoticon in hindsight it was a stupid move on my part and now my tire won't engage. Ds and I had to attach a rope to the mower and haul it up the property/driveway with the car.

Today, I learned that I CAN walk two miles and am getting stronger.
I learned that my new shoes sure helped.
And I learned where two of my fellow church goers live.
My kids call it stalking.
I call it 'getting to know my fellowship'. lol
And after all, they ARE in the church directory.

I did another Legacy webinar today & learned how to add records to my Legacy 9 tree so that it will verify all the different information found in it. Example - I added a death certificate for James Franklin Smith. It verified when & where he was born, who his parents were, when & where he died, why he died, where he lived at the time of death, when & where he was buried, the married name of his youngest daughter who was the informant. It also confirmed that his wife had died previously since it stated that he was a widower at the time of death. This was important to me because my sister had her death listed as about 9 years later & didn't know where either of them were buried. She was happy to get that information, too.

Now to just remember it next time.

Susan, you are right. I made it very general. I just want everyone to participate. (or as many as possible) emoticon Congrats to the couple you babysit for.

Sandy, glad to hear getting to know your new siblings is not a bunch of drama. Also the info on the Legacy Family Tree. I'm looking into joining some of those free webinars.

Today I learned that Cream of Tartar is a byproduct of making wine.

Just did a Legacy Family Tree webinar called Verifying Information Found Online. I learned several things that I can't wait to try out.

I also continue daily to learn new things about my new-found siblings. Not particularly good or bad, just different.

Okay, scorn me if you will, but you were pretty general in your challenge: lol
Last night I learned that the people I babysit for are having another baby!

It doesn't really have to do with my brain, but come November I'll get to experience the joy of holding a newborn again!

And we all lived happily ever after...

It's Worth Living.

The only thing I learned today was the information in the slavery article about the children being sent to America as slaves because they were guilty of being orphans. That really bothered me.

Nope Sandy, I haven't learned to crochet corner to corner yet. emoticon

Very good to know you need to take your calcium and thyroid pills separately. I'm glad you found that out.

F8 very interesting about the photo fads (so to speak).

Last night I learned minutes of daily physical activity attributes to improvemnts to better blood flow, and the growth of new blood vessels, growth of new brain cells, and improved brain "plasticity." (Grain Brain by David Perlmutter, MD pg. )

I love this idea as I love learning new things. Always taking one class or another. I hope we can keep this going after this week is over.

I learned something unintentionally. I've been interfering with the way my thyroid medication works by taking my calcium at the same time. It seems that after taking the thyroid pill, I need to wait at least 4 hours before taking the calcium for both to work properly. That's good to know.

Today, I'm also learning to use the corner-to-corner method of crocheting. I may be the last crocheter in the world to learn it.

Day 2: This morning I read an analysis of what makes a well loved photographic image (according to Flickr) It was quite interesting to see how peoples taste have changed. One that really struck me was that black and white images are no longer the favorites.

F8, that's really cool. I'm going to look into that.

Linda, could you post a picture of the baked potato presented in the clever way? I'd love to see it.

Day 1. This is new to me and I'll count it...

I'm going to try a new recipe for baked potatoes that a friend made for us last night which was so clever. Actually it is the old standard baked potato prepared and presented a clever way.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

Sandy, if you'd like it to be. I just learned today the placisity of our brain and how we constantly need to learn new things and so it doesn't really matter if it's healthy related to improve the brain. emoticon
Unless that's what you want it to be. I'll most likely post all health related things I learn. lol
