Verify That Medical Records are Transferred
Many years ago, I was diagnosed with a medical condition that was not life threatening, but did cause various problems. I had went to specialists for well over a year without much help. At the time, there wasn't much treatment for this medical condition.
Wear Cotton Gloves When Washing Baby
Bathing a baby can be a slippery time. To get a better hold on the baby get a pair of cotton gloves. Sometimes you can get them at the Dollar Tree. They are very lightweight and you can use as a washcloth.
Cat Litter For Traction On Ice
By sprinkling clean cat litter on your sidewalk or driveway, it may save you from a bad fall and it will give you traction if you have ice under the snow. Remember the cat litter won't hurt your lawn either.
Lemon Rose Bath Splash
Great gift! I give this to brides at the shower.
Use Sticky Notes To Track Credit Card Balances
I've been reading "sticky-notes" ideas and was reminded of one of my own uses. I use the smallest notes. Then I stick them to my credit cards with a notation of the available balance remaining on that card.
Buy Wood Locally
I heat with wood. At first getting it delivered to my home, which is 12 miles from town on a mountain, was expensive. This winter, I queried neighbors and found 2 guys on my mountain that are much cheaper.
Keeping Dark Clothes From Fading
When washing clothing for the first time, that you do not want to fade, especially jeans or dark cottons, wash them without soap, but instead 1/2 cup of vinegar (any type) and 1/2 cup of salt, in cold water.
Knifty Knitter Headbands
Another easy thing to make with the smallest ("baby") Knifty Knitter is headbands! You can make them out of wool to cover your ears in winter like a skier - or in acrylic to be light - even in cotton yarn for the lightest option.
Removing Odors from Plastic Containers
You will never guess what finally removed the leftover aroma from my plastic bowl. I put it outside in a flower pot (to keep the squirrels from playing with it) in full sunlight for 2 days
Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add eggs, oil, and buttermilk and mix until just blended. Store in covered container in refrigerator. Use as desired. Keeps at least 6 weeks.

Miss American Pie
Pour blueberry pie filling into 10 inch baked pie shell. Chill 30 minutes. Beat cream cheese, adding powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
Brown ground beef and onion; drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce, parsley, oregano, basil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and pepper. Simmer uncovered 10 minutes, stir occasionally.
Prevent Freezer Burn On Ice Cream
Ice-cream won't form ice crystals in the freezer if you cover the container tightly with a plastic wrap before putting on the lid.
Baked Tortilla Chips
I love to deep fry my own corn and flour tortilla chips, but the healthier option is to bake them. All you have to do is cut the tortillas into chip size wedges and bake in a single layer at 350 degrees F, turning once, on a baking sheet until golden brown.
Always make soup at least a day ahead of time, so that the seasonings will have time to improve the flavor.
Pickled and Spiced Shrimp Appetizer
This is made from scratch and perfect for any get together or party.
Great for older babies and everyone else! Combine oil, sugar, and vanilla. Cream until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat well. Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.
Lentil Soup With Turkey Meatballs
This is my own recipe. It is healthy and delicious.
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil, and preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Pepper (Calico Cat)

Mitsy (Long Haired Chihuahua)
This is Mitsy, a 3 year old long haired Chihuahua. This photo was taken in September 2010. I met Mitsy at the local shelter where I volunteer. At first I passed her by a few times because she barked and I really hate small yappy dogs.
