Happiness Quote:

“If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.”

-Maya Angelou


Have a Laugh!

Q: What did one light bulb say to the other light bulb on Valentine’s Day?

A: I wuv you watts and watts!


Health Tip!

Avoid Bright Lights Before Sleep. When we’re exposed to bright lights in the evening, this disrupts production of the sleep hormone melatonin. An interesting “hack” is to use a pair of amber-tinted glasses that block blue light from entering your eyes in the evening. This allows melatonin to be produced as if it were completely dark, helping you sleep better.


Valentine Wreath
Materials:

Red tissue paper
Cardboard
Hot Glue Gun
White Satin Ribbon
Red Paint

Instructions: 

I started by cutting 3-4” strips of tissue paper along it’s longest length edge. And then I crinkled them up. I then folded them in half. Loosely. And in half again. Loosely. I started to roll it up, adding dabs of hot glue at the beginning. And then a dab here and there as I rolled. With a final dab of hot glue on the ends. Voila. My tissue paper rosette. Repeat 40 or so more times. For the frame, I cut a heart shape out of newspaper and traced it onto a piece of cardstock cardboard. Then I painted it with some red craft paint. Then I started gluing. Beginning at the center top. And working my way around both sides equally. Voila. My free tissue paper rosette heart wreath. I added a ribbon and hung it in my entry.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 fluid ounce red food coloring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 12 cup muffin pans or line with 20 paper baking cups.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, red food coloring and vanilla. Stir in the baking soda and vinegar. Combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter and frost with desired frosting.
