A pencil sketch for a book I did not too long ago

The preliminary sketch. I like their big heads, little facial features, and skinny appendages.
Happy Tuesday! Still getting used to the time change. Why would I be affected when I got an extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning? And the big question...why do we have to have daylight savings? Let us all unite and be like Arizona and have no time change! Ah well. I will now resume my morning nap at my desk... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Cute picture (surprise :-) ), and I totally agree with you about daylight savings time. It's killing me this time around! The only good thing is that now I'm only an hour ahead of my AZ peeps.

We should all write it in on the bottom of the ballot as we vote today. That way there would be something really exciting to vote for. It would be fun to use that big black marker and write, "NO MORE TIME CHANGE!!!"

a little... about us said...

Lori, I know this is a long post but I can't log into my yahoo mail and so I couldn't find your email address.

I heard Grandmary was not breathing well and I had this info that might be helpful...

Fighting the flu pandemic with barley water

1/4 Cup Barley (Preferably hulled, not pearled)
1 Gallon Distilled Water

Cook the barley in about a quart of the water for 30 to 45
minutes. Let it cool, then pour it into a gallon jug and fills
the jug with distilled water. Every morning pour a little barley water into a glass. Then put 1/4 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar into the glass, stir and drink.

Try mixing 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and some honey into it.

A few weeks ago, Don & I went to a Fireside in Brigham City. Sister
Susan Puls was talking about a flu pandemic which is expected to kill many people. She said this flu would start out like any other flu. The difference will be when the patient has pneumonia symptoms, and then a hard asthma attack. Many people will die before they can get help with their breathing.

The Barley Water and Cream of Tartar will work to help people breath
when this Flu hits, IF they know to drink it. D&C 89:17

This is the original recipe that was first posted on avow at the following url

For an idea, here's two recipes from another asthma-related thread

Here's Aunt Faye's recipe:

1 Tablespoon Barley (hulled is the best, but pearled will do)
1 Quart distilled Water

And Mrs. Brack's recipe:

1 C. Hulled barley
10 C. Distilled or purified water
Simmer for 2 hours, occasionally replacing some water as needed. After
2 hours you will have a "milk." Drain out the left over barley and put
milk into a jar. Add 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar and honey to taste.
Refrigerate. It is a very tasty drink, not to mention a great thing to
have on hand for asthma.

Anyway, sorry for the long post. Just thought it might be something she would be interested in... Love you! P.S. Hope you are feeling better too!
