hands, feet, and a son named Akiko...

First, I would like to mention that we have a new son, he is 45 and his name is Akiko. Okay, not really. I noticed on our bank account we had another child listed by the name of Akiko. Finding this odd, I contacted our bank, and they apologized for the mix-up. They did say it would be rather inconceivable for us to have son by that age because we are 27, and 29.  Fortunately, the said party did not have access to any of our account information. Still, I would like to say hola, Akiko. Welcome to the family!

On the note of feet, I got some work done to mine today...
 
White plumeria flowers on my toes....represent...


You might remember my visit to the doctor in this post regarding purple toes..

Well, they were going to call me if anything looked fishy on my blood work, and I never heard anything from them. I am assuming I am healthy, but the problem is, I am still having circulation issues with my feet. That is why I fought my way through mall traffic during Christmas season to get this...

Peppermint essential oil. I have used this stuff for years.  After my foot massage and pedicure, I put some of this on the archs of my feet. I do this when the circulation in my body feels sluggish, anywhere, I always apply peppermint oil to that spot, and it has always remedied the situation.

DISCLAIMER:::I am not a doctor, this advice was given to me  by my intuition...Do not try this at home unless you are way super awesome ::

I assume a healthy diet of pedicures and peppermint oil will get my blood flow back to normal....I don't know, I could be wrong.


I also got my hands done, I would go into why  my hands don't match my toes, but it is a long story...



Another thing that always puts a skip to my step, and a dimple in my cheek are these trusty things...

fancy knee socks---a day spent lounging around in these bad boys ensures a life that will be a blessing to many.


Happy Saturday!!

  2. I am glad I can make you laugh. You can tell I have fun with this, right? On the peppermint oil, I went to college in a small hippi town. I use to walk to the health food stores, and study herbal medicine. That is where I stumbled upon pepperment oil. It is one of my secret weapons, really!!
