Holiday Walks – This year on Thanksgiving day, my daughter and I went for a walk along the trail at a local community college at daybreak. A couple of years ago, we went for a hike on Christmas Day. I’m thinking of making a walk a holiday tradition. For one thing, hardly anyone else is around and it makes for great conversations where we share, plan, dream and really connect.
Room Makeover – I’ve had the same decor in my bedroom for a couple of years now. I think it’s good to change things up every once in a while, even if there is no money to buy anything new. I scaled down the wall art and made a headboard out of curtain panel. Try it yourself by switching around furniture, using existing items in a different way, and being creative.
Cough Home Remedies – I’ve been sick for over a week, and finally tiring of taking over-the-counter medicines that didn’t seem to be helping at all, I tried the following two things for a hacking cough that won’t seem to go away. Vick’s Vapor Rub applied to the throat and chest definitely helps to quiet the cough and make the hacking sessions less frequent. I’ve also been swallowing spoonfuls of honey to sooth my throat and quiet the cough so I can get some sleep.
