Keeping Cool

HELLO!  Guess I have been away for awhile...sorry!  It has been hot and/or busy.  On the hot days I am too hot to blog...on the not hot days I am too busy to blog.  I may be catching up...???? Well, not really...don't think that will ever happen!

Wondering what this contraption is all about?  This is one of the ways we beat the heat around here.  At least it helps keep the house cooler.  It is pretty simple and low tech.  We bungee corded a box fan to the grate that usually lets the heat from the woodstove in the cellar up into the house.  I the summer the fan blows the cooler basement air into the house.  Plus it is a really nice place to stand on a wicked hot day!

It was my idea ~ but ~ DH wired an outlet and a switch to make it easy to turn on and off.

I will be back soon with more of what has been happening!  But back to working in the gardens now.  Hope you are staying cool wherever you are!

  1. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya

    Sat Nam Kriya

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-diary milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a few days.

    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:
