10 Things to BEGIN in 2017

Kim BrushComment

New beginnings at the New Year

A year ago I felt like I was so STUCK in a place I didn’t want to be but I was limited by my physical ability to walk, bend and the stamina that I did NOT have. It was so frustrating but I also had a sense that I was ready to get started on a lot of things and that led me to choose PROGRESS as my word for 2016. It proved to be very appropriate and I made huge progress on walking, balance, taking the stairs and flexibility, plus more fun things like crafts and gardening. For 2017, I am looking forward to lots of opportunities for beginning new things. That doesn’t mean I want to abandon the progress I’ve made but the feeling that NEW stuff is right around the corner is really strong.

Easy steps to decrystallize honey

Sweet honey!  We love it around here. 

By purchasing it locally from the Amish that live just north of us we get a better deal and take advantage of the health benefits of using honey instead of sugar. 

Is thick honey bad?

In December the honey I got was not a golden brown but a much lighter color.  Once I got it home I realized that the honey wasn’t easy to pour and would need to be decrystallized.
