~~~~#BLIZZARD 2016~~~~

Hello friends,how are you and your family surviving,this #Blizzard of 2016???? Here in the mid-west,we are currently dealing with Cold Temps,the blizzard, heavy Snow,evaded us….Amen..However,the East,and North East,got piles,and piles of the white stuff..Feeling helpless,and sad for all our citizens,in the path of this turbulent storm/blizzard…I felt the meteorologist’s really tracked the storm with truthful,informative, reporting,thus,allowing ample time to hunker down,rush to the grocery store,hardware,and any other ware!!!lol.. you have to visit,however, please (STAY INSIDE)…….Early this morning, after Prayer and Meditation,fully dressed now,I walk over to my side entry door,to let (Ge’Ge)our poddle, out for her duties. lol…As I opened the door slightly,a bone-chilling,wintry,blustery,burst of cold air,engulfed me,boy,the wind was gusty,howling,as it snapped off small tender foliage,I called Ge’Ge ,she ran in with no hesitation!!It was as if ,she thought you only have to call me once….lol.Reaching for the remote,the weather reports,were showing what had transpired,as we slept,it did not look good…Hopefully, people, had everything in order,ready to move,run,evacuate,at any given moment…As well, have fresh batteries,working  flashlights,candles, food,(Canned Goods) can opener,(hand-held)manual,*along,with several cases of bottled drinking water..Your car should always have a Full* tank of gas, also, washer fluid,for clean, clear windows, as you drive in at times white/out conditions…You never know how long it will take, if God-forbid you get stranded…Keep extra clothing for each family member,extra phone charger,socks,king size blanket,protein bars,easy/open fingerfood…Idealistically ,(the water will melt) hopefully!!!!Also,crackers,etc, etc….Add gloves,for frosty fingers…Additionally,for the home,a (am/fm) storm alert radio,should be ready, in case of wide-spread power-outages,that could ultimately,unfortunately last for 1 or 2 days,or a week or more…With so much piled/up snow,10/32 inches in some areas,,One has to wonder, where the piles of now gray,brownish/black,dirty snow final resting place will be??? Will another spring/summer Flood* once again bring destruction,and reap havoc,on our friends on the east coast,and beyond? leaving helpless citizens,homeless*and in disbelief,as they ponder,where the family will go from here?? It is a deep situation…Flooding,* rising water,just the thought,frightens me,I can only imagine how scary,the rising,swiftly moving, murky water must fill one with panic, causing,death,fear,and deep despair on/to my fellow Americans….God bless us/them, we ask for your Mercy Father,in these trying,unbelievable days,and unknown times ahead of us……Friends,Climate-Change* is real,and we are living it daily/weekly,2015*,was the warmest/hottest year in recorded history,(Record-Breaking) even……As the East-Coast clear out/clean up,days of shoveling snow is ahead,I hope you have a snow-blower,and 1 or 2 shovels in varying sizes….Keep the Faith,Pray,and see the good,make it a family affair,gather your children together,and make a day of clearing snow,making snowmen,angels,in the snow,sledding,and tubing..Turn,the despair into fun and joy,as you can once again see your brown lawn..lol..For, spring is just around the corner…God bless and keep you..blm1957@wordpress.com ..hug your children,and keep them close….Blm 1957 …..#Blizzard of 2016  Peace…#Family-Bonding



Hi friends,how are you and your family surviving these cold frozen days of winter 2016….Do you find your skin DRY*and dull? even, Older looking,itchy,flaky,and just, Drab!!!!!….Well,my friends,I would love to past along some Helpful Tips, and Suggestions,to revive,your suffering Skin,making it once again, supple,moist,and soft…..Firstly,the air,and cold dries out our skin…Therefore,can everyone say “Moisturizer”?? If you have the misfortune of Dry skin,you should slather yourself with a (daily) Moisturizer,it is particularly important to do so immediately after you shower,or bathe,better results are had if you apply your favorite lotions,coconut oils,while your skin is still Damp…..If you shower or bathe too often in winter,you strip the natural oils from your skin,thereby,causing your skin to become dry,dull,flaky,and itchy….Hot water also robs the skin of Moisture,(I Love a Hot* Shower)however, I have to adjust the temperature accordingly…. It saddens me to see my once supple,smooth,soft* hands,now older,rough and dull,it hurts,it seems some lotions only make them drier,I had a health issue,in which,one of the side-effects were my skin would probably no longer have that smoothness,suppleness,and beauty..-sigh-..it took a new attitude to help me get on with my life, even when the luxurious,most expensive,creams and lotions,seem not to work,as they did before aging,(how-ever slightly)lol…However,I’m so blessed to be alive,until I refuse to let this one (little) problem stop/hinder the love I have for myself,I soak,rub,then apply 2 extra coats of lotion/cream and keep it moving….if your skin is really sensitive,try unscented soaps,and lotions,they work well in the cold winter months,those delightful smells,will just have to go a little further back in drawer/shelf,until spring/summer…..As well,drink plenty* of water,all fluids,this will help keep your skin moist from the inside out..Lastly,avoid scratchy,coarse,rough fabrics,such as wool,as it can make skin feel itchy….Choose cotton or silk,for the softness..Try running a Humidifier,in your home, aim for a humidity level of 45-55 degrees…Here’s to smooth,soft,supple skin,with main focus on hands and feet…Good luck,and remember to Always Moisturize,for,soon this Cold to shall pass!!!!blm 1957@wordpress.com …hug your children,keep them close…blm1957…Your skin is getting softer with each passing day,if you follow these simple suggestions/tips…..Peace…
