ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2014
12 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 7:03 am
Sunset: 7:46 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today we celebrate Swap Ideas Day. The idea behind Swap Ideas Day is that everybody gets together to exchange ideas. People celebrate this occasion by connecting with other people to share thoughts and concepts. There are no rules outlining the nature of the ideas to be shared, thus making Swap Ideas Day an ideal opportunity for people to be as creative and wacky as they like with their ideas as well as learning from the ideas of others.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
My mind contains many good ideas, but it's not always easy to squeeze one out.
I’m at a loss for any new ideas to share with you all today, but I do love it when someone shares an idea that is helpful. Not long ago DD shared a tip she found to be helpful . She found a solution for better smelling and more absorbent towels. After awhile towels can build up a detergent and fabric softener residue. Just add one cup of white vinegar to your load of towels and run through an entire wash cycle using hot water. The vinegar will also make your towels soft. No need to use fabric softener.
I haven’t tried it yet, but she said it worked for her. It’s amazing all the uses there are for vinegar out there. You can freshen up the fridge. Clean the shelves and walls with a solution of half water and half vinegar.
You can also brighten coffee cups and teacups. Gently scrub stains with equal parts vinegar and salt or baking soda. It will kill bathroom germs. Spray full strength vinegar around the sink and tub. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
And one final idea that I found said that if you add ½ cup of white distilled vinegar to your wash cycle. The acid reduces static and keeps dryer lint from sticking to your clothes. Who knew???
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Acting on a good idea is better than just having a good idea.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over almost 2 years and have now reached 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2024. for a good idea shared by DD
2025. for fluffy soft towels
2026. for vinegar, it has a multitude of uses.
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
