The Pallet House Project


The Zkids want to build a house out of pallets. I don't know what it will look like or when they will be able to accomplish their task but they would really love it if they had lots and lots of pallets to work with. There are not many chances for me to get pallets with everything that I do but maybe some of my Burnet area readers can drop us by some free pallets that they find here and there and it would make the kids day. They have big ideas and this could really help them to develop some great skills a long the way. I will be taking some pictures of their work a long the way. You can just leave them beside our fence and we will find them or you can knock on the door and say hello. Thanks for reading and if you can't bring us some free pallets then that's fine we will pick up some when we can. God always provides!

Cholesterol is it Bad or is it Good?

There are many people that say that cholesterol is good and bad but that is just not true. The truth about cholesterol is that if it oxidizes then it is more dense and unable to perform its proper function and clogs the veins.
Cholesterol has a function in the body God put it in you for a reason.

Benefits of Cholesterol:


  • Cholesterol aids in the absorption of fat soluable vitamines A,D,E,K and D. 
  • Absorption of hormones in the adrenals as well as estrogen and testosterone and more
  • produces brain tissue without enough cholesterol you can suffer from depression and anxiety
To keep you from having oxidative damage from (like when a banana turns brown or an apple) cholesterol then you need to supplement with antioxidants in your diet and or in good quality supplements.

Foods for:

Garlic
Ginger
Olive oil
Olives
Coconut oil
Dark berries

Suggested Antioxidants Supplements:

Thai Go-an exotic juice blend with very high antioxidant levels (orac value)
Co-Q10- statin drugs used for cholesterol,  can deplete this nutrient
Super Orac- packed with antioxidents the capsule equivalent to drinking Thai-go
Super Omega-3-supports the cells (capsules are large so if you can't take large capsules you can also break it open and take it this way it has a lemon flavor)
Solstic Cardio- a nutrient packed daily drink that you pour into water.
There are others listed under Heart Health and Antioxidants at Natures Sunshine.

Comment and let me know if you need help coming up with a good nutritional plan with supplements. Or if you are using a certain supplement and that one is working good for you. There are others that will also have a good effect and don't for get to mention if you would like me to put you on my prayer list.

How to make pizza box paper plates!

At our house we try to have pizza every Friday. There ARE days that I make homemade pizza but on Friday I like to treat us for our chores through the week by buying store bought pizza in a box. But instead of making us do more dishes after we eat we make pizza box paper plates. You can do this with take out pizza as well.

What you will need:

pizza box
sturdy scissors

Just cut up your pizza box into halves or even 1/4ths if you have small slices and be sure to use both sides of the pizza box so you will have enough to go around. We tend to use the shinny side because it is fun with the pizza pictures on it the kids think it is a treat. When we have enough boxes to go around we only use the picture side. Sometimes I've been known to save the lettered side to eat our breakfast on when it is not too messy. You could cut them into cute shapes if you wanted too.  Let me know if you have ever made these free paper plates. Blessings!
