A client gave me a bag full of beautiful organic grown lemons so I decided to make some jam.

 

Lemon Jam


Wash the lemons and cut them together with the skin into lemon slice(remove the lemon pits).
Pour water over lemon pieces and leave them like this over night.
Next day, cook them to boil in low heat for about 1 hour.
Pour sugar into lemons and stir it all the way, so sugar melts. Let it boil for 15 minutes more to thicken
Pour hot fruit jam in clean and warm jam jars and seal them.

Beauty tips for women over 50:
1. Don’t use heavy makeup and powders on dry skin.
2. Your skin may look matte and dry, if heavily powdered.
3. Just as the pigment in our hair turns it grey, the melanin in our skin changes too.
4. Don’t fall prey to the idea that you must have every new color that is in trend for a particular season.
5. Use a humidifier, moisturizing soaps and lotions.
6. Good nutrition is ideal for repairing damaged skin.
7. Drinking lots of water helps hydrate skin.
8. Use products with SPF 15 or higher, and both UVB and UVA protection.
Loss of youthful appearance, decreased skin tautness and the development of wrinkles are the telltale signs of aging skin. As we grow in age, the skin sags and becomes wrinkled. The skin ages for various reasons. Both intrinsic as well as environmental factors are responsible for skin aging. Increasing loss of flexibility due to degeneration of collagen and elastin within the epidermis naturally leads to aging skin. UVA and UVB light wavelengths from the sun also ‘contribute’ their bit in speeding up the ageing process of the skin.

You Know You're Retired ...

# There are three signs of old age. The first is your loss of memory. I forget the other two.

# You're getting old when you don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

# Middle age is when work is a lot less fun - and fun is a lot more work.

# Statistics show that at the age of seventy, there are five women to every man. Now isn't that a great time for a guy to get those kind of odds?

# You know you're getting on in years when the girls at the office start confiding in you.

# Middle age is when it takes longer to rest than to get tired.

# Middle age is when you have stopped growing at both ends, and have begun to grow in the middle.

# You know you're into middle age when you realize that caution is the only thing you care to exercise.

# You're getting old when you wake up with that morning-after feeling, and you didn't do anything the night before!

# The cardiologist's diet: if it tastes good, spit it out.

# It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.

# When you lean over to pick something up off the floor, you ask yourself if there is anything else you need to do while you are down there.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
