Make a difference with each decision One of my main goals, my driving force, is to make a difference--to leave each situation, person, place, or thing better when I leave than how it was when I arrived. What we focus on in life GROWS. Most diets focus on what you CAN'T have--this, of course, makes [...]
For over a year I've had a closed group on FB where I put ideas, collect recipes I want to try, etc. as I see ideas in the THM FB groups. My pinned post in that group is what I'll put here--it is the resources that I point my friends to when they ask how [...]
ReUse & Repurpose - My presentation for the Vernal Preparedness Expo January 2017 & 2018. I'm including my slides and links below--will break many of these into their own pages and shorten the links here--but wanted to at least get these here now. http://blog.tirecrafting.com/ http://www.rural-revolution.com/2012/05/beginning-of-tire-garden.html http://www.backwoodshome.com/a-new-use-for-old-tires-a-garden-using-tires/ http://www.birdsandblooms.com/blog/recycled-backyard-tire-gardens/ http://containergardening.about.com/od/greencontainergardening/f/Are-Tire-Gardens-Safe.htm http://www.birdsandblooms.com/blog/recycled-backyard-tire-gardens/ http://homeguides.sfgate.com/many-potato-plants-can-planted-per-tire-43326.html http://earthship.com/tire-building-code http://www.tirewall.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cer3WKTOcy8 http://www.farmshow.com/a_article.php?aid=3845 http://blog.tirecrafting.com/springchicks-2015/ [...]
A gentle reminder that is by my desk and has been since high school.
I have a plaque that has been on my wall by my desk for about 30+ years - from St Francis of Assisi.
I began collecting quotes in high school--this is one of my all time favorites (someday I'll make it into a meme)--so wanted it to be the first to be posted in it's entirety here: Commitment Until one is committed, there is hesitation, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and [...]
My dear hubby is from AL - which means he prefers mustard based BBQ sauces--which are not easy to find here in the mountain west - and definitely a challenge to find a good recipe that is sugar free and THM friendly. So - I decided to create it myself--based on the flavors that he [...]
Every day I drink at least one GGMS (Good Girl Moonshine) and one of the consistent ingredients in mine is homemade ginger juice. I also enjoy using it as an ingredient in smoothies for some spicy heat and in chinese dishes--it's great in "Egg Roll in a Bowl". Here is how I make mine: I [...]
Weight and clothes sizes are just numbers that the longer you do this the more you realize they don't "mean" that you are getting bigger or smaller. The best way to know if you are shrinking is to take measurements. To help with that--I am including my measurements chart that I use. It's simple with [...]
