Pin it Make it - Warning: lots of images today

By now you have figured out that I pin a lot of stuff for ideas and reference today I am challenging myself to make something I pinned. The problem is there are so many great ideas I'm not sure which one to do. I decided to put down 10 ideas and just begin at the top and see how many I could get done in one month. As I complete each one I'll post them here so you are going to have to keep checking to see how far I got.

Sewing
It does not look as soft & flowy as the one in the picture but that is because of the fabric I used. I will try again with a less stiff material.

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Eat Breakfast like a King

That is the first line of a poem that I heard long ago. I am not sure who wrote it or even if I am quoting it right.

If a (wo)man would eat
Breakfast like a king
Lunch like a prince
Dinner as a pauper
Such a (wo)man would be
Healthy, wealthy and wise

I think a prince is supposed to refer to the storekeepers and such who ate three course instead of the 10- 12 courses a king would have at that time. I think it was written in the 1500's

After a little research I found that it was made popular by Adelle Davis in her weight loss book "Lets Get Well", but she only used "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper". I know I have seen that quote as written above elsewhere but danged if I can remember it now. All good sound advice considering she wrote that book in 1965

What it basically says is eat a large meal when you break your fast in the morning, a mid-size lunch and a tiny supper and you will become healthy, rich and smart.

Today I thought …
