How beautiful is this lake , Duluth is a town I absolutely love! It has a different feel to it. With all the ships it reminds me of a harbor that would be in the east coast maybe Maine. with the rolling hill for roads it makes me think of San Fransisco , the lake it so big you can’t see across it so it gives the feel of the ocean , it still has a small town feel which is like the midwest. I just haven’t felt the south in it.
I found this book ’1,628 Country Shortcuts’ at a thrift store . I thought I would share:don’t overcook jams and jellies or they’ll become tough and rubbery; If you have a small waste basket in your bathroom , empty it and use it as a bucket when you clean your bathroom so it gets cleaned too;
candle wax can be removed from table linens by rubbing the spots with a generous amount of vegetable oil. Wipe off with excess with paper towel and wash as usual
use baking soda to polish the chrome fixtures in your bathroom. Put a small amount on a wet cloth, rub the fixtures and dry with a soft cloth . they’ll look like new.
when you wash the curtains wash the rods then wax them that will make the curtains slide more easily
salt can be used to accomplish a number of things;salt thrown on a fire will extinguish it quickly.salt will quickly clean discolored bathtub or enameled utensils.a lump of salt . a lump of salt placed in the sink will clear the drain.salt mixed with water will prevent colored borders in towels and other fabrics from running if the towels are soaked in the solution for 24 hours.

This is the scripture that I sent a year or so ago to a friend whose first child, a son, had just been born. Though I am a mother of teenage sons, I have many friends who are having babes for the first time. A girlfriend of mine is getting ready to have her second child; she thinks it will be a boy. She asked me the other day, how do you do it? Raising sons that is….well, I can only say that raising children, particularly in this day and age, is and will be the hardest job you will ever love.
