Favorite Things Aug-Sept 2018

My most used oils lately.Fishing with Daddy!

First chicken processing.The Alphabet book from Grandma was perfect for practicing copywork.Dirt is the best therapy.I made it eight days gluten free, had a day off for my birthday, and made it another 13.7 days gluten free this month. It makes a difference in inflammation. Try it out if you’re trying to figure out relief.First cauliflower pizza crust.Maybe it’s a good thing my spaghetti squash plant was destroyed. We got lots handed to us, anyway! And butternuts, to boot.Beautiful apples my husband picked at the neighbors’. Thankful for their generosity!The ladies enjoyed the apples, as well.Had ourselves a joyous Tabernacles and hope our friends did, too!Our Sukkah this year. Very spacious compared to a camping tent, and it gathers warmth through the day. We slept all seven nights outside!

Safta got us an indoor Sukkah for the kids to play in. Dads like it, too!Let’s make a pumpkin pie!

Canning is easy with a shiny sink.Making use of the relatives’ surplus bounty.Something new to try. Perfect for soothing a cold.My favorite herbal tea, with chicory and a ton of cinnamon and black pepper!Cattle gathered and sorted for Fall weaning and branding.

How did I get seven purple socks that don’t match?

Last high Sabbath of the year beginning.

Extreme Diet and Autoimmune Disease

This video below is particularly interesting, considering the juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in my family. This lady had 37 affected joints, an ankle replacement in her teen years, and more. She found a way to help herself and get off the myriad of drugs. Take a look!

I’ve noticed this year that depression and panic attacks get rough after eating a high ratio of gluten. It’s a known trigger for hypothyroidism, as well. Currently, I am eleven days gluten free, and, in a week or two, I will make another attempt at adding it back again. GRADUALLY this time!

The food sensitivity and autoimmune disease explosion these days is uncanny. Multiple industries seem designed to keep the mass populace sterile, sick, dependent, and ignorant about it all.

Ranger Rolling – a Tip for Moms

So, you’ve been there. You just finished neatly folding a load of laundry, turned your head, turned back, and found a sweet little one had jumbled or thrown your stacks into piles again.

How about a “folding” method that keeps clothes neat, even if you throw them across the room against a wall? That takes more work for a child to pull apart? And it saves drawer space?

Check out all these Ranger Rolling videos! Army Rangers pack their clothes neatly and tightly in a manner that doesn’t jumble easily. At first, I checked this out so I could learn how to keep the tent tidy this Sukkot; I may use this year round, too!
