Helpful Hints

How many times is she going to make us look at that damn barn?

Some good stuff:
•Drink rosemary tea to alleviate melancholy or depression.
•Eating lettuce with your dinner is supposed to be calming, helping you to sleep and have pleasant dreams. Some say you should not have vinegar with your lettuce.
•Trying to remain relaxed but alert? Some studies suggest that the smell of apples, apple cider vinegar, or spiced apples have this effect. The right smell can make all the difference.
•Dill will lull cranky babies to sleep. Add dill infusion to the bath, sprinkle on a baby's blanket, or use as a hair rinse.
•Sage is considered a "ghost medicine," used to prevent nightmares. Strew it on the floor or in the bed.
Compliments of


  1. Great hints Kate, I'm a bit cranky and so will give the dill a try.

    Love the flowers in your blog background. I thought pansies, but maybe not?

  2. They look like pansies to me too but I wouldn't swear they are. Don't they look good enough to eat?

  3. I like the hints and the new look. I think we are all ready for spring to get here.

  4. I didn't know this about sage. I'm going to keep this in mind for future reference. Thanks.

  5. I'm always up for some helpful hints.
