Find the Sun and avoiding ‘scolds’

 

Several groups of researchers from different countries have found that the sickest patients often have the lowest levels of vitamin D and that countries with higher death rates had larger numbers of people with vitamin D deficiency than countries with lower death rates.

Note: The early research is not yet peer-reviewed, and other experts say the scientific proof is lacking that vitamin D could prevent COVID-19 or make the infection milder.

dievca is getting her Vitamin D early and away from as many humans as possible for the following reason:

scold

/skōld
verb
remonstrate with or rebuke (someone) angrily.

noun ARCHAIC•US
a person, in particular a woman, who nags or grumbles constantly.

Two women in full PPE suits and masks, power-walking in the middle of the road at Central Park scold the biker (15 feet away) for not wearing a mask.

Warning – the scolds are out, do not respond, and move away quickly. It could turn dangerous in more ways than one.

Are you drinking too much coffee? Wine? Gin & Tonics? more Wine?
Keeping water cool in the refrigerator and easily available on the tabletop during meals helps you drink more water.


Or maybe you need that water carafe bedside + aspirin after you drank a bit much…

A Wal-Mart Gem (something of use)

dievca took herself out of her Mother’s house to avoid — well, let’s just say she had to kill three hours.  Masked and gloved she got gas, ran to CVS (pharmacy), and wandered Wal-Mart.

Her sister-in-law is disdainful about purchasing anything from Wal-Mart, but dievca rolls with it.  she was able to get some lovely “grateful” cards to use as “Thank You” notes for people who acknowledged her Dad’s passing. Much sweeter and happier than the regular notes.

she was also able to get something stylish, eco-friendly, inexpensive, and of use.

The cotton tote is simple, roomy, 100% cotton, made in California, and other shopping bags offered are made from recycled bottles (PET). All the styles can be found on Amazon:


Practical Flowers for the Flower Super Moon and Mother’s Day

When is the Super Flower Moon?

May 2020’s full moon phase occurs at precisely 10:45 Universal Time on Thursday, May 7 — a global time that translates to 6:45 a.m. ET and 3:45 a.m. PT. That’s the moment of 100 percent illumination – seeing it before or after that time will offer you a chance to shake your wallet at the moon to come into money! May your skies be clear. XO

Maybe, instead,  you can shake your floral tools at the Super Moon and all your DIY projects will be completed...

Note: this is the last Super Moon for 2020
