Peter & Shannyn – Monday, Jan 6

Today, the first Monday of a New Year, is sometimes called “Blue Monday” – the most depressing day of the year.

Here are some things you can do to help prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder, from WebMD:

  • Try to spend some time outside every day, even when it’s cloudy. The effects of daylight are still beneficial.
  • Begin using a light box when fall starts, even before you feel the effects of winter SAD.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet, including sufficient amounts of vitamins & minerals.  This helps provide energy.
  • Try exercising for 30 minutes a day, three times a week.
  • Stay involved with your social circle & regular activities. Social support may be even more important during winter months.

Mrs. Beeton’s Easy Layered Apple Charlotte


  • 9 slices of bread and butter
  • About 6 good-sized apples
  • 1 tablespoon of minced lemon-peel
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of juice
  • Moist sugar to taste.


  • Butter a pie-dish, and place a layer of bread and butter, without the crust, at the bottom.
  • Add a layer of apples, pared, cored, and cut into thin slices.
  • Sprinkle over these a portion of the lemon-peel and juice, and sweeten with moist sugar.
  • Place another layer of bread and butter, and then one of apples, proceeding in this manner until the dish is full.
  • Cover with the peel of the apples, to preserve the top from browning or burning;
  • Bake in a brisk oven (350 degrees) for rather more than 3/4 hour.
  • Torn the charlotte on a dish, sprinkle sifted sugar over, and serve.

Sufficient for 5 or 6 persons.
