From Creative Administration!

 

I don’t know what kind of New Year’s resolutions(I am not a believer in them) you might make, but I know that I always make a resolution for healthy eating.  And I do this throughout the year.

 

I think that vegetarian can be pretty healthy.  Though I have vegetarian friends that are anything but healthy.  One of them can’t give up fried food.  She loves fried mozzarella.  Fried hush puppys.  You get the idea.  The sad thing is that she’s a nurse.

 

Check out this book, but also check out the blog Creative Administration.  They say that everyone has a book in them.  This person looks like they could help you!

The Power of Meditation

From Prescription on aging!

 

Everyone loves the holiday season!  It’s time of hope.  Shining lights, decorations, music, and lots of things to do with our friends and family.  People seem to have a bounce in their step.  We are all a lot nicer to one another.

 

The problem is that we are bustling and hurrying around almost nonstop!  I think that this can cause us to lose a bit of the joy and fun we could be having.  A lot of us get ‘monkey brain’.

 

If you feel the need to center yourself, bring yourself to this present moment, meditation is for you.  I started doing this almost a year ago.  I am more calm.  I think a little easier.  Here is a great article for you to get some ideas on meditation.  What it can do for you and how to get started!

Eight simple rules to lower your cholesterol

Posted on

cholesterol level conceptual

From Serena Glow!

I saw this blog post and the nurse inside of me kicked in.  I want to start off with a question.  What is the number one cause of death in Americans?  Do you know?

 

IT’S HEART DISEASE

 

This includes women too.  I have a friend who is a Nurse Practitioner.  She is alarmed by the fact that she is seeing high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart disease in kids as young as nine years old.  If we are seeing this in kids this young, what is going to happen when they are 30, 40, 50…..?  And Americans are not the only group seeing this.  Places like France, England, etc.  are encountering the same problem!

 

Well we can correct this!  It will be by making lifestyle changes.  Increasing activity and improving diet.  A good start is Serena’s chart below!

Hidden Between the Rows

Posted on

This is from Denise, a blog friend of mine.  I read it and was reminded that the place that is most peaceful for me is my garden.  It’s where I go to find my center.  And a toad or two.  It’s where I am headed in a few minutes.

 

I hope you enjoy it.

From “Crazy Things You Should Be Putting in Your Coffee”

Posted on Updated on

I have loved coffee since I was a little kid.  In the summer my dad would pack us up and take us camping.  As a treat, he would allow us to drink coffee as a treat.  He would fill up the cup will almost all hot milk and add about an inch of coffee and a lots of sugar.  Drinking it outside while watching the sun come up.  Little critters playing and birds singing.  What wonderful memories.  Keep Reading!

An Assassin In My Garden

Posted on Updated on

Assassin Bug

Friend or Foe?

I had taken my camera out to my garden hoping to get a picture of the bees on my fennel blooms.  Instead, I found this fella.  I had never seen a bug like this before I moved to Texas.  My garden was teeming with them.  I looked them up and found that this was an Assassin bug.

Assassin bugs get their name from their predatory habits. Theses are beneficial bugs, because their voracious appetites for other bugs keeps pests under control.  In cotton fields, assassin bugs prey on a broad range of prey including flea hoppers,  lygus bugs, aphids, caterpillar eggs and larvae and boll weevils. They will also eat other  insects such as lady beetles and big-eyed bugs.

Living on a sandy island, we have a lot of fleas.  I think my Assassins help keep them under control.  They are beautiful and bad!
