Building your Immune System

This is the time of year to really focus on eating healthy and taking care of our bodies so we aren’t getting sick all the time.

There are still plenty of great fresh vegetables to take advantage of. The added benefit is that vegetables are low in calories and full of fiber that will make you feel fuller. They will also help reduce your cravings.

Here are a few seasonal favorites-

Watermelon is coming to an end. Make sure to get your fill of this favorite before its all gone!

Tomatoes are at their peak right now, and they are sooo good!

Green Beans are available pretty much all year, but they are also at their peak right now. And almost everyone likes them. You may want to consider freezer preserving. There’s a link below.

Apples

Zucchini is a nutritious food full of many vitamins, minerals and fiber. However, the amounts are too low to include in the superfood category. Yes, its good for you and low in calories. Eat as much as you want! Though the high fiber content will make you feel full.

1st Round Spring Cleaning Checklist

Ceiling fan

Spring Cleaning is the time when you do all of the heavy work that you normally would not do during regular house cleaning. While its still a little early to do some spring cleaning tasks, you can knock quite a few items off your to-do list in spare minutes here and there.

Start with a cobweb check and take a good look at each room. Pick the projects that you need to tackle first… Continue reading

Men Rant

Man RaysI am appalled by the average man these days.

I’ve been blissfully single for like 19 years now. I was living on my own and loving it.

Then my financial situation got worse and I moved in with a friend. I’ve talked about him before. He is the one whose wife died of a major stroke at the age of 47. It was him and his 2 adult sons living in the house.

The house was in horrible shape. Totally disgusting.

While there is still a lot of work to be done as far as painting and replacing things, the house is clean.

And while nobody lifts a finger to clean anything, at least they are not leaving stuff laying all over and the dishes make it to the sink. Believe me, that is a big improvement. They are still total pigs in the bathroom. Its better than it was, but how they think that this is OK is beyond me. I will refrain from going into graphic details…

So what set me off today?

I was listening to a couple of girls talking about their husbands. Things they get mad about, things they say to their wives, the way they don’t make enough money to support the family so wife has to work, but they feel entitled to lay down and do nothing because they worked so hard.

When i get home, he asks how are you? I said I’m a little sore, had a tough day today. He goes and lays down.

Now mind you, this is not a husband, or even a boyfriend. We live in separate rooms and I pay to live here…

His temporary dentures fell apart a couple of days ago. So now I have to cook something that he can eat without chewing. I can either eat the same thing, or make 2 dinners. Which actually a choice I have to make often since he doesn’t like much.

He just lays on his throne and waits for dinner to magically appear.

He gets up early, so he pretty much goes to back to bed after dinner. I get left with all the clean up. The only time we really talk is over dinner.

He complains about not being able to find a girlfriend. I asked him once, what’s in it for her? Help pay the bills, shop, cook, constant clean up after a bunch of pigs – and you wonder why you don’t have any takers?

Its not that I can’t manage it. I can and I do. I have my systems for getting everything done. Its the expectation that rubs me wrong.

It used to be that men took care of their family, the bigger jobs around the house, and the cars. Now they don’t want to do any of that. They feel entitled to sit around and do as little as possible.

I really feel sorry for the younger girls. There are so many that can’t find a man worth anything. Any hopes of having a family are fading away for these girls.

It leaves us asking, where have all the real men gone?

What do you think?

Thankfully women are strong and capable and can do just fine without men.
