Depressed? Take Up Sewing

My Grandmother used to say, “I’m not happier than when I’m sewing”. It’s true, having a sewing project gives your mood a lift. You’ll think about it when you go to bed at night and first thing when you wake in the morning. Even if you can only work on it an hour at a time, it will still give you that mood lift. Whether it’s simple placemats for your dinner table or a custom-designed blouse, sewing will keep your mind occupied in a pleasant way.

Sugar? Brings Out the Ugly Twin?

I know they have a book out called “Sugar Blues” but how about “Sugar Bitch”? I’ll tell ya, I have to stay away from the stuff as it brings out a nasty twin sister that dwells inside. If you don’t believe me you can ask my husband. Good thing I am into health foods. It really surprises me what an impact a little bit of sugar has on me. It makes my temper flare, makes me grind my teeth makes me impatient and yes it can bring about the blues. It’s too bad because it does a nice job on a hot cup of tea on a cold winter’s afternoon but this kid … no can do. That twin, she is NOT fun to hang out with.
