Blissful Scenes - Winter

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Tuesday Tipz


Tomorrow begins Lent.
Instead of 'giving' up or 'doing' without,
consider giving or doing!

Some ideas include--

1. With high heating bills this winter, some families
     find it difficult to pay for school lunches--give a donation
     to be used to offset these costs.

2. Take personal care items to nursing homes, schools, a food pantry.
    Watch for sales/good coupons to purchase. Or visit the dollar store for good deals.

3. Donate gently used clothing to schools, most have a program
    to give to students in need--middle and high schools always need
    adult sized clothing.

4. Pick up new socks and underwear, donate to schools.

5. Buy a case of peanut butter, donate to the school weekend back pack

6. Take time to send a card or make a visit to the nursing home.

7. Take old blankets or towels to the local animal shelter.
     Purchase a bag of animal food/treats and donate.

 8. Find a local charity to support.

The ingredients are just suggestions,
add or subtract to taste. 
This could also be changed to chix rice soup. 

Any kind of cut up cooked poultry--chicken, turkey etc.
(A roasted chicken from the grocery could even be used.
Sometimes I even use a mixture of different kinds if making a large batch.)

Dried or fresh onion, to taste.

Dried or cut up fresh carrot.

Cut up fresh celery.

Dried or cut up 'taters.

2 cans or large carton of chicken broth. 

Egg noodles to add later.

Peas to add later. 

Salt, pepper, parsley to taste

Add all ingredients to crock pot--add water if necessary. 

Cook on high for an hour or two, then turn down to low.

Simmer all day. 

About any hour before eating,  add noodles and peas, cook until tender.

Hang in there!

Even though the Groundhog saw it's shadow
predicting six more weeks of winter--
there are signs that spring can't be far behind.

The days stay lighter longer
and the robins are back!

So get your favorite  hot beverage,
a good book, or your craft project,
and enjoy the last few weeks of cozy inside time.

Monday Make Itz

   (made from a pre-made tote)

Project number 2 for Seniors!

Walker Carry All
   Pre-made Canvas totes (or free giveaway totes)
   (Some craft and big box stores carry these in the craft or fabric paint aisle. )
   Heavy Duty Velcro with sticky on back.

1. Cut off one of the handles close to the seam.
  A hefty pair of scissors will be needed if using canvas.
2. Cut the other handle in the middle of the loop--this will make the two loops to fold over
    and hold the tote to the walker.
Cut the remaining handle at the top of the loop.
3. Place the sticky velcro so it will make 2 strong loops to attach to walker.
    Some velcro glue will be strong enough to hold heavier objects,but go over velcro
    with a few rows of machine stitching to make sure. The sticky will help hold velcro in place.
    If no machine is available, just be sure to get the heavy duty sticky strips.

Pre glued velcro

4. These can be decorated with fabric pens.

5. Attach to walker.

Caution that this won't carry heavy objects such as heavy books or computers, but for everyday needs such as kleenex, personal needs, etc., it is great!
