The Necessity of Copper

Photo from Google Images
Growing up, I remember copper pipes, copper pots and pans, copper jewelry, and copper items you could just set up all over the house as your home decor.

Why was copper so important to us?  It was considered a very important mineral that our ancestors made sure we got replenished with as they cook with the pots and pans or wore copper as jewelry.

Copper can be found in your liver, skeletal muscle (tendons), brain, heart, and kidneys.

Copper is important for cellular energy production, connective tissue formation, central nervous system function, and melanin formation.

So is it any wonder why its very hard to find copper (real copper) for your personal use anymore?!
Oh you can find it, but it's not that same texture that I remember from years ago.  The copper I remember didn't have copper shavings as time went on.  The copper I remember was more dense.

Don't mind me.
Just a random thought.


Much love,

Unrecognized Entrepreneurship

Photo from Google images
I remember growing up when life seemed complicated but it was a lot more simpler.  Although we
had major chores to do, families were more self sufficient than they are today.  We grew our own vegetables, had apple trees, pear trees, peach tree, grape vines, and we were the only family in town with a chestnut tree.
We were able to barter with our neighbors for anything else we needed they had that we didn't.  The money you made at work you mostly kept for bills instead of having to go to the store. One of our neighbors grew most every root and leaf you needed for tea and herbs.  Another one raised hens and chickens.  We traded with them all the time.
What I'm getting at is, it's very rare you see this anymore.  Most of the town has redeveloped with new businesses and they say it is for the better.  I personally think it only made us faster.  You buy everything from the stores now so most of your money is now out of the home instead of in the home.
How is it that we allowed ourselves to become entranced with a dollar bill that it caused us to be more dependent rather than independent?
We were already entrepreneurs during that time and didn't recognize it.
Don't mind me.  This is just one of those random memories that came up while reminiscing through our home town.  No, things aren't as they used to be.  But it would be nice if they were.

Much love,
Granny

Lightning Attraction

Photo from Google images

Growing up, my parents were always horrified to find me front and center in the window when there was a storm.
What always drew me to it?

Lightning!!!      
I'm still very attracted to lightning when I see it.

I love the way it moves.
I love the way it's shape is completely different than the last one I saw.
I especially love how silently, no matter what, it continues to do its job.

Why was lightning so important to me (and still is)?

NITROGEN!!!

The lightning was a part of me coming to replenish the nitrogen I depleted out of my body by striking (be it up, down, or sideways).

I was always very small growing up, but very muscular.
The nitrogen was much needed to activate the protein in my body for muscle growth.

The next time you're visited by lightning, give Thanks.


Much love,
Granny

Naked Detox


Growing up, we were encouraged to sleep with as less clothes as possible.
Old folks said, "It's good to let everything air out at night Gal so your cells can rejuvenate the right way. So let your body breathe." 
As I got older, I realized another important factor for sleeping naked with my spouse - DETOXIFICATION

The polarities of your Union (physically and spiritually) is the top ingredient in the two of you detoxing and replenishing one another at the same time while you sleep.
The more opposite you are, the greater.

It is a beautiful, calming, renewing cycle that should occur every night as possible (or whenever you sleep together).

Some other benefits sleeping naked with your spouse are:
1) a stronger bond
2) balances your melanin
3) help regulate your natural body temperature
4) better and deep sleep
5) enjoy the Dreamworld more as you sleep
6) boost your immune system
7) healthier sex organs
8) reduction in skin disorders

Old folks weren't crazy.
They knew how to keep us from the Doctor as much as possible.






Until next time ..........


Much love,
Granny

Ode To Zaan

No matter how many times you experience death of a loved one, you feel like this big heavy foot just landed in the middle of your chest and crushed your heart.  My little Zaan, although he was over 6ft tall, has transitioned to the other side.  It's always a little weird when the ones younger than you beat you to the other side.

Yep!  Granny is photobombing in the back...lol


What I remember of him most is his infectious dry humor.  He always found a way to make you laugh and he's just standing there with a straight face as if nothing happened.  Zaan was brilliant, unselfish, patient yet stern.  He enjoyed being with family and was always looking out for his baby sister Zaria.

Although he's no longer with us on this side, it feels good to no he's on the other side still looking out for his grandmother, mother, baby sister, and fiancé.

Zaan, I know this post is the shortest of my fondest memories, but I feel I would do you no justice if I said more.  Your exemplary life of how most women desire their son or man to be, you still are in Granny's memory.

Love you baby cousin ~ forever
And to all family members, love you too.

Much love,
Granny

Who Called Me Granny

Photo from Google Images
The origin of Granny began with my Godson whom I affectionately call Cee Cee.  He was my shining star.  When he started talking at a year old, his parents tried to get him to call me "God Mommy"; but he insisted on "Gammy" laughing each time he said it.  Of course I loved every time he said it, he was Granny's boy.  As time went on and Cee Cee's speech got better with age, he began saying Granny and so did every one else:  all Granny's Godchildren, their parents, the church, Students, and their parents, etc...

Of course you have the naysayers ranting about the use of a young person in her twenties being comfortable using the name Granny.  As usual, what did I care?! I loved it.  I told them at some point in my life, it would be the name that would bring me a great pay check.  And so, after starting this blog, I called it Elegant Granny; naming my company in honor of my Godson Cee Cee.  Turns out, EG is beginning to spread like wild fire.  So many magazines soliciting me for articles; radio shows soliciting for guest spots.  Thank you Cee Cee and to everyone else who enjoys Granny.  I appreciate you much.  If only I was able to show you as much as I can tell you. 

Much love,
Granny
