Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
Oh Yikes, Mama. Your ceiling sounds nice most of the time but wouldn't be right now.

You probably already know most of the tips, but just in case, if you wear loose fitting layers it helps. A hat is about the best. We loose a lot of heat through our heads and a hat keeps it in. A stocking hat is great.

You had a great idea on the towels. A desperate measure with an electric dryer is to diconnect the hose that goes outdoors and let it vent directly into the house. A nylon stocking over the end keeps the lint and dust from getting as much in the house and humid air is warmer than dry.

If you don't want to do that, a pot of boiling water helps too.

Is there a way you can shut off your kitchen? Even putting a blanket or shower curtain over the door? Baking cookies or cooking anything would warm a small area...unless you're fortunate enough to have a huge kitchen. 8) If you have an oil lantern or candle, it will put off some heat too. It would help to keep the water pipes thawed too to have it warm in the kitchen. Don't forget to run a little water in the bathroom sink, tub, and toilet once in a while to keep it from freezing.

If you have some rice or beans and an old sock you can make a small body heater by filling it and microwaving it. If you have cast iron, putting it in the oven with whatever you're cooking will put out some heat for a while after it comes out.

A heating pad, hot water bottle, electric blanket?

If the kitchen idea works, you could have a tea party for the little one. Tea is warming, fresh cookies are mood lifters, and a lantern on the table for atmosphere. LOL.
You'll be regular Princesses. princesss



If you get too desperate, hop in the car go for a ride and run the heater full blast til it gets fixed.

We're back in business and toasty warm! Thank goodness my husband is handy and only needed to buy the part!

I will be saving all these ideas Nines! Never made it to the tea party! Thought about the cookies/brownies and still have not ruled that out just yet because the heat is back on! I can go for those anytime!

Thanks for all the great tips!

Oh Mama, I'm SO happy for you. Not only for having the heat, but for having such a wonderful husband. What a man. Not feeling well, yet he fixed it. It's such a blessing that he knows how to do things. You must be so proud. I hope you'll give him a nice treat tonight. 8)

After writing about the tea party, it occurred to me. Mama is the only person who wouldn't snap back with a "thanks but I don't FEEL like having a tea party when my fingers are frostbitten." LOL!

Those brownies do sound good. You probably already have a good recipe, but in case you're interested, Amazon has a free book download for Kindle today, about brownies. You don't have to have a kindle, you can download the Cloud Reader free from Amazon.

The little guy is now a big guy, Mama. Thanks for asking. He's hanging out in the barn and laying low during this cold weather, but he still comes for his food and treats and is maintaining his weight real well. He's a real sweetie and it makes me so happy to see him doing so well through the winter. Was worried about that. Thank you for the adorable picture. 8)

Hey, Nine's! Speaking of seeds, I found several places that carry the melon seeds. I've got some ordered. I don't know why I couldn't find it before.

I would tell you all about our weather, but you'd feel bad with your cold, yuckies. It's been a little chilly, but very nice. We may have some more true winter in a couple of weeks, but it's so far out, no one wants to believe it yet. I just hope we get some more wet out of something soon.

Mama, I'm really glad you got your heat back on. I know it's not fun, especially with little ones.

Good for you TB. That way, you'll get fresh ones. Glad you got them. They'll absolutely love that TX heat. Bet they'll be sweeter than sweet.

So, I take it you're having nice weather. tounge Seriously, I'm happy for you but do hope you get some rain. Felt so bad for you guys last year and worried about fires, the oppressive heat, and knowing how people must be feeling.

Right now, oppressive heat sounds good. It's so friggen cold. We're supposed to have a chill factor of between 15 to 17 below tonight. Glad I filled the wood rack high before this cold.

Poor chickens. Don't know why I bothered letting them out today. They just huddled, looked miserable and went back in. Made them some cooked barley so they'd have something warm to eat before tonight. We're supposed to get 2 to 4 in. of snow, and if we do and it stays cold, think I'll just take the chickens out some warm oatmeal and not open the door.

Miserable, TB. Miserable. LOL. brrrcold

Did you ever have a stretch of time when you just wanted to curl up in bed and hide under the covers? We're having that now. It's funny, the stuff that was bugging me before is SO trivial now.

I talked to my oldest son yesterday. He and his wife are expecting our 2nd granddaughter in about 6 weeks. Last week, dil had a couple of headaches. I told my son to keep an eye on them and to call the dr. if they got worse or more often. Well, she had her appt. on Wednesday and the dr. was out with an emergency at the hospital, but the nurse put dil on bed rest and gave her some instructions, with another appt. today. The dr. told her that she MIGHT have pre-eclampsia, but they would know more after the blood and urine tests and to come back on Monday. He put her on bed rest again until then. They put a rush on the lab work and called dil right away. She wasn't even home from the appt. yet. She DOES have pre-eclampsia and has to stay in bed until the baby comes. She wasn't planning on taking off of work this early, but it will work out. She still has to go back to the dr. on Monday.

As serious as all of this is, I really need you guys to tell me I'm being silly. The rest of the story, I haven't reminded my family of. I lost my first son 33 years ago next month. I had pre-eclampsia and placenta previa. I'm feeling very superstitious right now, but I don't want to tell anyone here (at home) about it. Talking to my son, the last 2 days, I'm worried. He's so excited about having a baby, he'll be a wonderful father. He's a middle kid like I am and he keeps things to himself, like I do. I hear in his voice that he's SO lost as to what to do and how to handle it. I've told him all the info I have and all the right "mom" things, so he's ok so far. We picked up a ton of stuff last night, in case dil has to deliver early. Her shower isn't until the first Saturday of March. I don't know now if it will even happen, now that she won't be able to go. That's another doom story that I won't go in to!

Please guys, I need you all to tell me I'm being silly. I know she has a very good dr. I had crap Army docs. They caught her's right away, my dr.'s never did. My next dr. told me. I know medicine is better now. It just feels like I'm re-living a nightmare. I'm so thankful for you all, 'cause I really can't talk about this with anyone else. I can't spread more fear than we all already have. How do I stay hopeful?

TB,
Yes when things like that happen to us, we can not help feel fearful for the ones we love when they get into the same situation. It is normal to feel that way. BUT, you said it yourself, she has a good dr. and they caught it in time. Technology is so much better, quicker, and faster these days too!
You have to just picture in your mind, your son holding his brand new baby over and over.
You are not being silly...it is just the pain you know...that you do not want your son and dil to ever go through!
Totally understandable!
They are so lucky to have you and that new baby will have the best grandma ever!!

TB

I totally understand where your coming from, I lost my second child to placenta previa too.

But... I will say, that I went to the Dr, said I had a bad cough and that I felt like I was going to cough that baby out. They dismissed me, told me medications werent safe for the baby at that point and to deal with it pretty much, 3 days later I ended up in the hospital 8 weeks before I should have, the rest is history.

My point, both of us had way less available to us in the form of medical treatments and diagnostic tools than they do now.

I think if you stress that the bedrest is important without scaring them everything will be fine, and no your not nuts, its perfectly understandable how your feeling, just dont let on to them. We are here to be your sounding board so you just feel free to blab away about it.

You are not being silly, you are concerned. They say "Time Heals All Wounds", but that is not correct in itself. Time heals the wound but leaves a scar. Sometimes the scar starts to hurt again later. This is what is happening with you. The earlier diagnosis and improvements in medicine will definitely help your son and daughter in law. I would tell you not to worry, but I know that as a parent you will. It's good that you are all preparing for an early delivery. As for the shower, even if you have to do it after the baby has come it will still be a wonderful day. Odds are things will be ok in the end with a baby that is loved by all. Hugs to you my friend!

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
Just look at all the nice words and help you got TB. I should just say she'll be fine, but you know the opportunity to write a novella can't slip past.

We've all had those days of wanting to curl up and never come out from under the covers. I'm sorry about your baby son and know the heartache. Enough of a heartache to hope that no one ever endures it, and opens the pain again when you worry about someone else having even a slight chance of going through it. Because of that, I can't tell you you're silly. But some facts might help ease your mind.

Pre eclampsia affects 5 to 8 percent of all births in the United States. Most of them deliver healthy babies.

Drs. can give blood pressure meds to the Mom, and steroids to help the maturation of the baby's lungs.

If she's 6 weeks from due date, she is about 32 weeks now? So the baby is probably approx. 17 inches long and weighing about 4 lbs.?

From now on, half the weight she gains will go directly to the baby. In 3 weeks the baby will probably be at least 5 lbs.

In 2005 .gov studies reported preliminary findings that vitamin E and C supplementation were encouraging and suggested larger clinical trials. Haven't kept up to date to know whether or not that happened, and you know I never suggest any herbs or any other treatment for a pregnant woman, but it would make sense to me that orange juice, for example, would provide the C without supplementing.

C is mostly in fruits, and E is in seeds, nuts, vegetables, fruit, fish, etc.

During pregnancy, women sometimes avoid orange juice because of the acid and nausea it can cause. The study makes sense from the perspective that the things listed aren't things that many pregnant women want.

It's more important than ever that she includes those healthy foods in her diet and drinks plenty of good fresh water..unless of course her Dr. has advised restricting water. Flavoring the water with a squeeze of lemon and crushed ice might encourage her to drink more and give a little flavor. Lemon has the added benefit of being a natural salt substitute, and her salt is probably being restricted. So, two birds with one stone. It's more important than ever that she has proper nutrition.

Will you tell her a story I just have to share? My son was a high risk pregnancy. There has probably never been a more wanted child born to anyone. LOL.

I read to him when pregnant. Dr. Seuss books and any rhyming books. To this day I can recite from memory Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb.

I'd read books while rubbing or patting my stomach, like you'd comfort a baby you were holding in your arms. After a while, I noticed that when that before I got the
"hand, hand fingers thumb, dum diddly dum diddly dum dum dum," spoken, he'd start moving and kicking and did it the entire time of the story.

Shortly after he was born, I cuddled him and started the book from memory. Wiggling, moving, the same as he did during pregnancy, and each time afterward.Nothing will convince me that he didn't hear and love the story, and probably even the comforting, even if there was some flab and water between us. 8)

Maybe it comforted me as much as it did him. It created a bond that will last forever. Maybe dil will want to follow up on my hypothesis and use her unborn child for a guinea pig. If she does, please share he results. In addition to comforting the baby, it will be good for her. She'll learn real early that she's soon going to be taking a back seat to having her needs met, and will do so cheerfully while she's looking into the eyes of love from her healthy little baby.

It's gonna be ok, TB. No superstition. Just facts. Hugs to you.

I've been playing with music videos again, mostly just to make me feel better. It works for me. lol I kind of feel bad for making others watch some of them, though.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
What has this kind of thing got to do with canning and dehydrating food ?

I'll tell you : nothing, nothing at all.

This thread has become a little conversation club for nostalgic remembrances of nice memories.

It is a corpse artificially kept alive.

Well..... I got my eyelash line (where you would put eyeliner) tatoo'ed. Since I turned 50 my eyes just dont pop like they used to, so I gave them some pop.

I would call that preserving my youth564

Thanks, it's windy today. No dust yet, though. Yeay!


Update on dil and baby...dil's bp is down and so is her protein count. She had a non-stress test today and will keep having them twice a week. Our son thinks baby will come about March 5th. Idk. I keep telling him, the longer they can wait, the better for baby. Until it isn't. Dil's due date is Apr. 5th. If baby comes Mar. 5th-ish, she and her cousin will be sharing birthdays! Yikes! That will be fun...NOT. So, it looks like I have a little more time to get the crocheted blankets finished. I have some fleece ones to do, too. At least those won't take much time to do.

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and to the grumps, it's OFF SEASON for canning and gardening right now. If you have something good to post, please do. The majority of the thread is FULL of good stuff.
