A Mother’s Education

I watched the most heart warming story on the news a while ago. A mother in Pakistan is  attending the first grade with her two young sons. Most importantly she has the blessing and encouragement of her husband. What a wonderful thing to see when what we usually see from that part of the world is the exact opposite. I loved that the husband said if his wife is educated then his family will benefit from it. I am so happy for this woman.

For Migraines

I just read this tip in the book, Before The Change by Ann Lousie Gittleman, Ph.D.

Rosemary an astringent herb, alleviates migraine, is an antioxidant, and combats heart disease and infections. Quite a lot in a single spoonful of oil. So do we ingest it for a migraine or smear on our face?

Art Fun With My Grandson

Teaching and inspiring him. We made quite the mess.

We were inspired by the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. His use of those famous black lines with color blocks are due to his own art theory, Neo-Plasticism. For our renditions we used these fabulous markers by Crayola, Twistables Slix Stix. I love these things! They were like drawing with lipstick. So much fun.
