Senior Care Memoirs Blog has been Created

I have started a sister site called Senior Care Memoirs. I was going to write a book but decided a blog would be more helpful and logical as the details will come along in spurts. And I'm already have writing 3 other books.

The new blog will include incorrect information you'll likely receive from nursing homes, important questions nursing homes need to ask up front but don't, what to expect from seniors with dementia and mobility issues, and how to find care for these seniors when you can't do it yourself. My personal experiences, frustrations, and failures will be included as well so you'll know you're not alone in your battle and that you will survive.

Hopefully, I will be able to shed some light on how you can maintain your sanity and keep the promise you will make to yourself that you will not wind up like the senior(s) you're watching after. Difficulties, threats, and disappointments will litter the way, and you'll have no idea how you got into the mess you find yourself in. Questions are always welcome. Answers will be provided either via the comments section, email, or a new post. 

Thanks for visiting www.SimplyMakingLife.com today. I hope you enjoy the new site and will find it to be helpful once more posts are added.

May God bless you on the journey you're on today,

Patricia

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Vinegar to Remove Sticker Residue

My first vinegar cleaning test involved removing an old sticker and the residue that was on the bottom of a very old glass pitcher. I've had the pitcher in my possession for about 5 years and have no idea the full age of this pitcher. So, it seemed like a good item to try the sticker/residue removal test. In my head, the sticky residue is a germ catcher not to mention a plain old eye sore, so I actually try to get rid of that residue as soon as I remove any sticker myself. The idea is to remove goo from stickers, bumper stickers, labels, decals, etc. by repeatedly wiping with vinegar. So, first, I sprayed vinegar onto the sticker/residue section of the pitcher. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrubbed the section with a paper towel and my nail. The sticker part came off rather easily with some umph. I sprayed more vinegar onto the residue that remained and let it stand for another 5 minutes. With a hard push with my nail over the paper towel, most of the residue came off. So
