A Likely Demise

A Likely Demise

No, I haven’t become Miss Doom and Gloom. I haven't lost hope either. 😀 I found this little "lost episode" in my email. I wrote it waaaaaaay back before the pandemic got started. It does pay off to squirell things away, especially when you're prone to choppy seas. Consider this a lost episode of Star [...]

True Beauty Tips

True Beauty Tips

About three years ago I became very sensitive to hair colouring so I decided I'd ditch the dye. My ears were insanely itchy! I wanted to stop colouring eventually, anyways, so I went for it. I failed the first attempt. As those silver strands started to appear at the top of my head I wasn't [...]

A Happy Camper

A Happy Camper

Brace yourself for a quirky one. My mentor used to say that I'm a multidimensional person. I think this was his gentle way of saying that I have multiple personality disorder. Okay, nevermind that. I'll be back to myself in no time. The question is: Which self? On with the awkward show. Have you ever [...]

I’ve Got Mail

I'm so glad that I email myself. I really do and I really am. No, it's not sad. I like to back up all of my writing. After working hard on something I don't want to lose my work. I've heard stories. I remember my mentor being so frustrated that he'd lost what he'd spent [...]

Mothra?

Mothra?

I'd never even heard the word "mothra" until Andrew uttered it last week. I thought it was the funniest thing.  So last week we had the privilege of watching our neighbor's dog, Charlie. Well… most of it was a privilege. I like to feel useful and she's a pretty easy dog to dogsit. She does, [...]

So I was munching away on a carrot as I juggled lime green markers in bed one morning. I went to grab my carrot to take another bite, but it was nowhere to be found. I thought to myself, hmmm… I guess I must have finished it. I was still hungry. Carrots aren't very filling.  [...]

Evening Light

Evening Light  So lovely a night Warm through and through Let me bask in this sight. Can't I stay outside? Can't I capture the moon? I could sleep under the stars Till I'm bit by a racoon.  Tina S.W.

God's Whispers of Truth

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance.

~Ecclesiastes 3:4

We can all agree that laughter is a great medicine for stress relief.

Here are 6 reasons I’ve found why laughter improves one’s health:

1) Laughter relieves stress and tension for up to 45 minutes (and we all know stress is a big health crusher).

2) Laughter boosts the immune system by increasing immune cells and infection fighting antibodies which improves the bodies resistance to disease.

3) Increases endorphins released by your brain which result in feelings of well-being and pleasure.

4) Lowers blood pressure. This coexists with the first point because stress is a big culprit of most health issues. Laughter and a good diet can lower blood pressure.

5) Laughter works the abs because the stomach muscles expand and contract just like doing crunches.

6) Laughter improves cardiac…

True story.  July 5, 2020 Tina S.W.  No, she isn't insane, even if she does write about herself in third person sometimes. It's all part of the journey. Well... [...]

Superstitions

Superstitions

I've been saving this one for so long my bananas are mushy. Nevertheless, even an overripe banana can be made into banana bread. If you're superstitious then you may throw daggers at me (or bananas) but I'm not one bit superstitious. There is the odd superstition that's pretty super. It's quite sensible to avoid running with [...]
