  1. Thoughts from Home

A lesson from animal crackers

Lisa, our good friend and next-door neighbor, was babysitting her three-year-old granddaughter, Austyn. They had been grocery shopping. When I saw them come home I made a mad dash over to visit that darling child. In her tiny hands, Austyn held a big bag of animal crackers, her reward for being good on their excursion. After eating her prize for about ten minutes, Lisa said, “Austyn, that’s enough,” and reached over to take the bag of cookies. Austyn looked quizzically at her Nana then at the nearly full bag and said with certainty, “I’m not done.”

Austyn’s not alone in being overwhelmed when too much is on her plate – both literally and figuratively. We all eat less when plates and portions are smaller. Snack-bag size servings give us a beginning and an end that we can see and count. The same holds true in our work world. Eliminating that overwhelmed feeling of endless items on a to-do list or in work folders enables us to concentrate more clearly on the task at hand and accomplish more.

What can you do to create bite-size portions at home or at work that will help better manage your mind and body?

  1. Did you know….?

Solution to stinky and sticky

John is going to be embarrassed again. But when something has been irritating a person his whole life and an amazing remedy is found, I can’t help but think someone else may be able to benefit from the information.

John is allergic to traditional underarm deodorant. He’s tried countless traditional products and homeopathic remedies, but nothing has been able to eliminate the rash and itching that he experiences – until now!

Joe and Terry Graedon, the hosts and authors of People’s Pharmacy, recommend applying milk of magnesia with a cotton ball instead of deodorant when a person can’t tolerate aluminum-based antiperspirants. John was skeptical, but it worked! (And continues to work 10 years later!)

Please let me know if this information helps you or someone you know so John knows sharing his personal hygiene problem was worth it!

  1. Josmo’s Café

Living in the south, we embrace peach season. July is peak season for the best South Carolina peaches. Only an hour from our home on Interstate 85 in Gaffney, SC stands a 135-foot tall water tower shaped like a peach. It’s a giant steel and concrete structure called a Peachoid. It is quite the tourist attraction!

Our favorite Fresh Peach Cake is moist, dense, and sweet. It’s one of those cakes that gets better every day. Leave it to Ina Garten to create the perfect recipe! Eat with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’ll be in summertime heaven.

We have over 90 recipes on our Josmo’s Café page on the website. Many great dishes and sweets to make and enjoy!
