Homemade Mosquito Spray Repellent Recipe

Jungle tree

Naturally when you live in the tropics there are going to be insects. And I’m one of those people that the mosquitoes love to bite. It drives me crazy sometimes.

Sometimes when you are traveling it’s hard to find the ingredients you need. In the small…

Oatmeal, Sunshine and Starting the Day

“The sun is up. It’s morning now and I can eat my oatmeal.” – Heidi ~~~~~ One of my best friends, Heidi, in Seattle spoke those words in 1986. I can’t remember now what we were doing.
