FEB. 27, ’15 CHIT & CHAT&  CHATTER & ROSEMARY THE HERB!!!

HELLO- EVERYONE— I VERY -VERY -VERY OFTEN AM ASKED TO BLOG ABOUT MANY SUBJECTS– & SOMETIMES I DO & SOMETIMES I DON’T!!!!    🙂

I AM GOING TO CONFESS TO SOMETHING PROBABLY A LOT OF THOSE READING THIS BLOG DON’T KNOW—— THERE ARE A NETWORK OF MCS SISTERS I HAVE KNOWN FOR MANY YEARS– & WE E-MAILED EACH OTHER LONG BEFORE I MOVED HERE TO BRANSON, MO. & LONG BEFORE I STARTED THIS BLOG—–BUT SINCE I RECEIVE E-MAILS FROM SO MANY MCS SISTERS & OTHERS— I DON’T KEEP EVERYONE’S E-MAIL ADDRESS IN MY ADDRESS BOOK— BECAUSE THERE ARE JUST TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY——- SO WHEN I GET E-MAILS– I EITHER ANSWER THE E-MAILS– OR I DON’T & THE E-MAIL ADDRESS IS NOT IN MY ADDRESS BOOK–IT IS NOT STORED AWAY—- I HAVE VERY- VERY- VERY FEW ADDRESSES IN MY E-MAIL ADDRESS BOOK THAT ARE MCS SISTERS— I DO HAVE MAYBE A 1/2 DOZEN ADDRESSES OF THOSE I SHARE BLOGS WITH– BUT THAT IS  ABOUT IT! NOW I HEAR FROM PEOPLE ALL THE TIME—THAT SAY– YOU DIDN’T ANSWER MY E-MAIL–BUT– EVERY TIME– I SIT DOWN AT MY COMPUTER & CHECK MY E-MAIL— THERE ARE USUALLY ALWAYS OVER 500 E-MAILS!!!!!!! AND AS MANY OF YOU BELIEVE– I DON’T HAVE A LIFE– I REALLY DO– & IT DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND MY BLOG & E-MAILS!!!!!!! SO SOMETIMES TO EVEN PLAY LIKE I AM SANE– I DELETE THEM ALL & START OVER!!!!   🙂   IT ISN’T THAT I DON’T WANT TO ANSWER EACH E-MAIL– ETC –ETC— IT IS JUST NOT POSSIBLE!!!!

BUT I BELONG TO A NETWORK OF MCS SISTERS– WHO ONE STARTS AN E-MAIL–&  SENDS IT TO SEVERAL OTHER MCS SISTERS– WE ALL ADD SOMETHING TO IT– & SEND IT ON– WE TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING— & SHARE THINGS– THAT IF I REPEATED ON THIS BLOG– I WOULD BE SHOT AT SUNRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  🙂     BUT I DON’T HAVE ANY OF THOSE E-MAIL ADDRESSES IN MY ADDRESS BOOK—– SO IF I DON’T HEAR FROM SOMEONE– I HAVE NO ADDRESS TO E-MAIL THEM BACK— WHY—– BECAUSE THERE ARE JUST TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAMNED MANY OF YOU— THAT I GET E-MAILS FROM!!!  JUST THAT PLAIN & SIMPLE—— IT WOULD BE WAY TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OVERWHELMING FOR ME!!!! I JUST DO THE BEST I CAN— & THAT IS IT!!!!!!!

BUT ANYWAY— AFTER WE GOT BACK FROM OUR TRIP— MY MCS SISTERS NETWORK & I WERE TALKING ABOUT TRAVEL WITH MCS——— & AS MOST ALL OF YOU KNOW– WE NOW  HAVE A SMALL “CLASS B” RV WE TRAVEL IN– THAT IS MY MCS SAFE HOME ON WHEELS!!!!!!  ABOUT AS SAFE AS I CAN GET!!!!

FL 10 RV PARK ORANGE CITY AREA 2

HERE IS A PICTURE OF OUR SMALL CLASS B RIG — SOMEPLACE IN FLORIDA!!!!!!! 🙂

SO BACK TO MY STORY–( MCS BRAIN FOG– & I GET OFF SUBJECT)——ANY WAY– OVER THE YEARS WE HAVE HAD EVERY KIND OF RV– FROM CONVERTED BUS– TO 5TH WHEEL– TO EVERY SIZE TRAVEL TRAILER– MANY “CLASS C” RV’S– ETC- ETC– WE LIKE THE CLASS B– BECAUSE IT IS LIKE DRIVING A VAN– & WE CAN TAKE IT ANY PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE TRAVEL WITH AN RV– BECAUSE WE CAN CONTROL THE TOXIC CHEMICALS THE BEST WE CAN– & OUR DIET– ETC- ETC– IT IS MY MCS SAFE HOME ON WHEELS!!!!!!

SO TALKING WITH THE MCS SISTER NETWORK IN E-MAILS— IT WAS BROUGHT UP– THAT I USUALLY ALWAYS TRAVEL WITH A CONTAINER OF SPRIGS OF ROSEMARY IN WATER—— & WHY DO I DO THAT———-

WELL– FOR ONE REASON– IF I BRUSH THE ROSEMARY– IT IS VERY FRAGRANT– & IT HELPS REDUCE THE TOXIC SMELLS WE MIGHT RUN INTO ON THE HWY WHILE TRAVELING— IF I WASH MY HANDS– I THEN USE ROSEMARY TO RUN ON MY HANDS TO TAKE THE SMELLS WAYS– THERE ARE LIKE ABOUT A MILLION REASONS– BUT ROSEMARY– JUST PLAIN HELPS MY MCS IN SOOOOOOOOOOO MANY WAYS—- I TRY NOT TO TRAVEL WITH OUT IT!!!!!!

ONE OF MY MCS SISTERS ASKED WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR SPRIGS YOU TAKE WITH YOU????????

rosemary 1

THIS IS MY MAIN ROSEMARY PLANT– I HAVE HAD FOR SOME TIME– IT STARTED OUT AS A TINY CONTAINER FROM THE HERB SHOP– IT HAS TO BE BROUGHT INSIDE WHERE WE LIVE IN THE WINTER ALONG WITH ALL MY PLANTS I DON’T WANT TO FREEZE—— BUT WHEN IT CAN GO BACK OUTSIDE THIS SPRING– IT WILL LOOK A BILLION TIMES BETTER & DO BETTER– I CUT OFF SPRIGS– & PUT IN WATER & THEY ROOT & THEN I HAVE MORE ROSEMARY PLANTS– I WILL PLANT STARTS IN THE GROUND IN MY HERB BEDS WHEN THE WEATHER WARMS & IT IS NOT IN DANGER OF FREEZING AGAIN!!!!!!! (WHICH WE ARE ALL READY FOR!!!)

rosemary 2

THESE ARE THE SPRIGS I TOOK WITH US ON OUR TRIP– I JUST TOOK SOME CUTTINGS FROM THE MOTHER PLANT– STICK THEM IN A SMALL ANTIQUE CREAM BOTTLE I HAD– & IT FITS RIGHT IN MY COFFEE CUP HOLDER IN THE RV– & IT TRAVELS THERE—– DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE OR NOT– BUT THE SPRIGS ARE ROOTING— SO WHEN I CAN– I’LL PLANT THEM & HAVE MORE PLANTS!!!

I LOVE AN HERB GARDEN– I PLANT TONS OF DIFFERENT HERBS– & IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO SEE WHAT WILL COME BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER THE WINTER FREEZE!!!!!!!!

I ALSO LOVE MINT—- & HAVE SEVERAL KINDS OF MINT—– THE MINT ALSO KEEPS BAD BUGS OUT OF OUR YARD- ANTS- & SPIDERS– – & SKITTERS HATE MINT!!! THEY DON’T LIKE ROSEMARY EITHER———

SO—– SINCE MY MCS SISTERS ASKED– HERE IS SOME INFORMATION ON ROSEMARY—– THERE ARE ALSO LOTS OF RECIPES FOR ROSEMARY JUST DO YOUR OWN SEARCH!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!

    Great info. I didn’t know all that stuff about rosemary. 😀

  2. I love my rosemary bush. It is HUGE and grows beside the house, sheltered by a large tree. It makes it through the winters okay. Sometimes I pluck a sprig and just walk around the house holding it in front of my nose. 🙂

    • AWESOME—– MY ROSEMARY WOULD FREEZE IT’S BUNS OFF— IF I LEFT IT OUTSIDE HERE IN THE WINTER!!!!!!! 🙂 SO IT HAS TO COME INSIDE– I PRUNE IT BACK– BUT I HAVE A START FOR THE NEXT SEASON!! 🙂 THEN WHEN IT GETS TO GO OUTSIDE AGAIN– IT GROWS LIKE CRAZY AGAIN!!!! 🙂 I LOVE ROSEMARY ALSO!!! 🙂

    You taught me something. Your plants look wonderful.
    I am not a plant person – well let me say, plants’ lives are shortened considerably if I am responsible for taking care of them 🙂 That’s why I am always so excited when I can grow something in my garden.

    Keep on blogging. I love how you manage your blog and emails rather than letting them manage you. Keep on traveling.

    • THANKS STEPH——— I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL WE CAN DIG IN THE DIRT & PLANT HEIRLOOM SEEDS FOR CHEMICAL FREE FOOD TO EAT!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS SHOWING HERE & COLD—— DID I SAY HOW READY FOR SPRING & WARM WEATHER I AM?????? 🙂 LOVE YA!!! ❤

    I don’t use rosemary in my cooking for some reason

  7. WHAT BEAUTIFUL PLANTS YOU HAVE! 🙂 ROSEMARY IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES ALSO. I RUB THE ESSENTIAL OIL ON MY WRISTS AT THE SUGGESTION OF A FRIEND WHO SAID IT WOULD HELP MY SEEMINGLY POOR CIRCULATION. I WAS WAKING UP WITH COLD HANDS AND DISCOMFORT. IT REALLY WORKED. I HAVE ALSO READ IT WAS GOOD FOR MEMORY BUT HAVEN’T NOTICED ANY CHANGE IN THAT AREA THOUGH.
    I DREAM OF A TRAVEL RV SOMEDAY, IT USED TO BE AMERICA I WOULD TOUR, BUT NOW I FIND EUROPE MORE APPEALING 1) BECAUSE I AM HERE NOW, AND 2) I HAVE TRAVELED AMERICA WHEN I WAS A BIT YOUNGER BUT HAVE BARELY EVEN SEEN ANY OR IRELAND. 🙂 PERHAPS SOMEDAY!!

AT OUR AGE NOW– WE LIVE TO DO SMALL OVER NIGHT TRIPS IN OUR RV– DAY TRIPS & SPEND THE NIGHT!!!! 🙂 ALSO WE CAN TAKE OUR OWN FOOD– & TAKE OUR DOGS!!! 🙂
