Pasta Cooking: Ending boil-over and Pasta Stuck to the bottom of the kettle.
Grease the pot (or spray with non-stick spray) before putting the water in to boil. Note: Also spray the colander so that draining pasta won't stick to it.

Enjoy your day!

Feeling better

I'm finally feeling better although I still can't hear very well. Seems so good to not be so tired all the time. Had a wonderful day of worship today; had a outdoor worship service with our neighboring church this evening. The weather was beautiful - big bouncy white clouds and a lot of sunshine. Hard to imagine hurricane Irene on the east coast. I'm keeping those people in my prayers. Have a great day.

I've been sick

Last Wednesday I came down with a bad cold. I coughed constantly, day and night. I can't hear, having both ears closed off. Finally this pass Wednesday I went to the doctor. She says I have acute bronchitis and a double ear infection. She put me on azithromycin and a cough syrup with codine. I don't cough as much anymore but stay very tired and light headed.

When I watch TV I have the volume up as far as it can go because I can't hear. It is driving my husband crazy. Hopefully it won't be long before my hearing is back.

Do not sit and idly wish for wider, new dimensions where you can put in practice all your good intentions, but at the spot God placed you, begin at once to do little things to brighten up the lives surrounding you.

Micowave Tip: When warming a micowave dinner which should be rotated during cooking place a wooden toothpick under the front of the dish, then move it with the dish as you rotate it. For example, start at 6 o'clock; move to 9; then 12, and so on. You can tell at a glance how often the dish was turned. Works for Me!

Family Gathering

My family (my sister/husband, and six brothers/wifes) spent the day together at my sisters cottage in Upper Silver Lake. It was a beautiful day. Some of my family aren't so young any more so it is very nice to all spend some time together. Would you believe I took my camera along but forgot to take pictures? I thought of it when we were leaving to go home. Next time we get together I am going to tie my camera around my neck!

If you were another person, would you like to be a friend of yours?

I'm asking God to help me to be sensitive to the needs of

those close to me.

Tip for Tuesday

When re-wrapping meats for the freezer , cut the label off the original grocery package and tape it to the newly wrapped one. The label has all the information- type of meat, date of purchase and weight. No more guessing whats in the package.

We have returned home from our vacation. Had a great time with family and friends; very hot and a lot of rain. I was afraid our little trailer would float right out of the park.
You should have seen the weeds in our flower garden when we returned home. Our flowers looked great too. All this rain has helped everything look so healthy but it does the same thing for the weeds.
So we have lots of work to catch up on - laundry, ironing, weeding, cleaning..........the list goes on and on. It good to be home!!
