Summer Time 2012 has arrived!

Peony flowers 2012

Its been a while since I wrote a blog post here. It seems between Facebook and Pinterest, and life happening .. I have been remiss in my entries.

The summer so far has been sweltering. Fires raging thru out the South West, my prayers for all those in those parts.

Politically, they are ramping up for the elections this year. I think I will keep my opinions to myself .. Politics and Religion… I don’t go there.

I love Reflexology! I studied it back in the late 1999. As a young girl when my Grandpa would come home from work his feet hurt him so much I would take off his boots and sock and massage them for him. I saw the relief he received and how relaxed it made him. this is an informative artilce by Sun Gazing on FaceBook. Enjoy.

What is Foot Reflexology?

Foot Reflexology has become a well respected ADJUNCT to regular medical care. It is used in Hospitals, by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors to enhance MOST forms of medical treatments.

It is not a “miracle” or a “faith healing” type thing. Sometimes, like other therapies, it takes a few sessions.

Foot reflexology can help ease the pain of achy joints and muscles, relieve headaches and toothaches, improve the functioning of major systems of the body.

Foot Reflexology works by applying pressure at specific points on the bottom of the foot. This is not the same as acupressure or acupuncture.

In fact, the only thing that is the same is that medical science can’t prove how it works…they just know it does!!

There are over 7,200 nerve endings at the bottom of each foot. Nerves connect to every organ, every limb and region of the body through the brain and spinal column. It is thought that foot reflexology works in much the same way. Even though we don’t actually work the nerve endings, the correlation of the bottom of the feet to every region of the body definitely exists. It was originally called “The Zone” therapy in the early 20th century and was successfully organized into a comprehensive therapy by a physical therapist, Eunice Ingham in the ’40s. She coined the term “reflexes” when referring to this therapy.

Foot reflexology can increase the blood flow to the part of the body being worked, which in turn increases the oxygen going to that part.

The increased blood flow helps take away toxins that build up in each cell of the body each day.

This brings more health and vitality to the region plus adds a sense of over-all well-being. When our feet feel good, we feel good!

Learn to do foot reflexology to help your family and friends feel better! Get help getting your body back to its’ natural state of health by teaching your family to do foot reflexology on you!

Please realize that foot reflexology is NOT a substitute for medical treatment, you are always encouraged to seek professional medical help when needed, however, this therapy can be used in conjunction with most treatments for most conditions.

Please, if being treated by a medical professional, get that professional’s permission before doing foot reflexology for that medical condition.  ~ by sun Gazing on FaceBook

Summer time / Living is Easy ? / July Give A Way –

Pergola is almost ready. Can’t wait. Thank you Rudy ..


Sun dried tomatoes with fresh garlic and basil in extra virgin olive oil a dash of salt and pepper.

Harvest from the Garden:
Basil, green and yellow squash

The economic times in the country is really not the best. Yet, we are hopeful and carry on .. as usual. We are a resilient bunch and even though we are not as happy with the political climate and all the (empty) promises that were given .. we are still hopeful.

The saying is .. where there is life .. there is hope. And so, we hope, for good health care, more jobs, etc.

This was written by a dear friend and mentor:

Life’s task is to be like an otter, seeking adventure and joy in our
endeavors, instead of being like a beaver, always tied to work that
must be done and feeling guilty when it is not accomplished.

Quotes for July ~

‘ For him in vain the envious seasons roll –
Who bears eternal summer in his soul.’
– – Oliver Wendell Holmes, The Old Player

‘ Summer is the time when one shed’s one’s tensions with one’s clothes,
and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief –
that all’s right with the world.’
– – Ada Louise Huxtable

‘ Deep summer is when ..
laziness finds respectability. ‘
– – Sam Keen
