Video Game Lock Up

My kids are video game addicts!  I was having a real hard time restricting them. I felt out of control! My kids were missing out on life,  always being sucked into Minecraft   I tried different ways, like no video game Wednesday.  We would do a family adventure instead.  It faded away in time. We have tried many rules but none of them stuck. We found a solution that works and now the kids can be kids. Life is in my control with a precious little key.

Needed:

Tool box

Lock and key

Power bar

Drill

Drill a whole in the side to enable you to charge the electronics when they are locked up if you want.

Today is a snow day and they promised to help me around the house and not make any messes. It’s beautiful outside so a cross country ski is definitely the plan.

Good Luck to all the parents who’s kids are addicted to electronics!

Ginger Water

I have been kicking colds this season left and right.  Dare I jinks myself but we have not had the flu. Knock on wood!  Anytime I feel my immune system failing I have a few tricks and man I swear by them. I hope this is not too late for you.  I guess you could call this drink a hot toddy but some would say it’s not a hot toddy without whiskey. I take this drink on the go and keep adding water. I call it ginger water if someone asks me. I like it better than tea, plus it’s less expensive. My coffee mug makes my coffee taste like ginger and I like it. This drink is versatile because you can add some other flavors. I hope you can enjoy this drink and kick any colds that might cross your path.

Hot water

Ginger

Honey

Cinnamon

Turmeric

Lemon (optional)

Grate, dice or mince the ginger. If using a garlic press to mince, press slowly into the mug because ginger juice squirts everywhere. Scrap the garlic press and scrape the ginger with a knife. Use as much ginger as you like.  Dilute with hot or warm water. Stir in honey, cinnamon and turmeric. The ginger pieces sink to the bottom.

Other ways I keep my immune system healthy are:

Eat raw garlic

Drink a freshly squeezed lemon first thing in the morning.

Taking vitamin B 6 and 12

Taking vitamin D every day

Low or no sugar

Eat lots of food with vitamin C or take a supplement

Eat green vegetables everyday.

Oil of Oregono capsules or a drop on my tooth brush. 

I wish peace and health to everyone!
