Organize! Yes! Why!

With all the wonderful weather we have been having including the high temperatures, we all believe summer will be here before we know it. The flowers are popping up their heads, the grass is so green and already needs cutting .

Everyone is talking about starting their garden . I say everyone but not us this year. Too much work getting the soil ready, planting, taking care of the weeds, so we are passing .

Goal is to continue organizing our home, decluttering closets, dresser drawers and the garage, getting rid of the excess we have. This last year my office got cleaned and that was considered a miracle so we will just make sure more miracles continue to happen.

That means also cleaning out cupboards really well, because they are overloaded with excess. That means looking at dates and getting rid of outdated items in cupboards and pantry.

Why become more organized. The cleaner more organized your living environment, the more smoothly life goes for you. Doesn’t that sound good.

To become really organized your focus has to be on doing one thing at a time. Finish! Finish! Finish!

Start your project.

Think about a chart with the assignments written on it.

Plan a time to start and finish each part of your cleaning

Plan a 2nd day to start and finish, if the first day was not enough

Plan a time to go and purchase new containers if needed.

Make sure someone has the job of wiping down each cupboard before thing are put back in the cupboard or pantry.

Make sure someone has the job of wiping down the refrigerator before putting items back .

Know who is coming to help for sure.

Be sure you have some food for everyone.

Finish before everyone is so tired they can’t move.

Good luck with the organization.

Going to use my Thieves for this project

Thieves, from Young Living is what I am going to use to really clean some of the areas discussed in this blog.
Have used it on spots on the carpet, areas where puppies have had accidents and it really does the job.

Tried to come up with a few different cards for you to express your love, appreciation and thanks.

Mom’s are some times just plain worn out as are father’s. They work hard to make things as good as possible, but we all know that does not always happen. As our world is not perfect we tend to remember only the things that did not always go our way. It seems we forget about the trips to the doctor when your ear hurts so bad or the trip to the emergency room for the broken arm or leg. The times your parent’s sat with you when you cried over a broken heart, a lost friend or situation that was going to need lots of extra TLC (tender loving care).

Selections from barb ‘s resource library has a small selection of offerings from me. I am putting these cards there. Please sign in with the password of HELEN. Mother’s Day card, Father’s Day card, and Memories card.

Picture of one of the cards.

The vase in the picture above is from my grandparent’s 50th anniversary celebration many ,many, many years ago. Remember well going to the party, it was such a big deal. We were all excited. In our little old car (Dad always bought 2nd hand) there were 5 kids and 2 adults. We had to travel quite a distance.

We left right at the end of the party and got on the road to travel home. It was raining and not a pretty sight, one of my sister’s said wouldn’t it be funny if we got a flat tire !! Your right, we did and believe me the atmosphere was tense for awhile after that! Thank God we got home safely.

Tension, stress and anxiety!

Updated blog originally named Essential Oils can they relieve stress?

Essential Oils can they help relieve tension, stress, and that anxious feeling that is always hovering about your head like a black cloud? What a good question and of course the answer is up to you and how you feel about essential oils and whether or not you are up for learning about their benefits or maybe no benefit for you.

Think about the following as you move along here

essential oils and my health!

essential oils and my bettering my health!

essential oils and furthering your knowledge of essential oils!

essential oils and understanding how to use!

We all have times where the above, tension, stress, and anxiety are prominent in our lives. How about right before that first big date, or when you are getting ready for a test, or the interview where you have to do a video first before anyone human will even talk with you. How about this one, you are going to take your driver’s test for the first time and all of a sudden your mind goes blank. Remember your wedding where everyone else was so tense and you just wanted everything to be over with.

The world of essential oils is here for you to venture into, to see if they might improve some of the above situations and help you

Here are a few essential oils that may help with your stress and tension:

Angelica Essential Oil – Has a calming aroma – You can diffuse it, dilute it or apply it directly to the skin. Helichrysum Essential Oil – Diffuse while doing homework. – Can diffuse it, directly inhale or apply topically Spearmint Essential Oil – Uplifts and calms. Can diffuse it, directly inhale or dilute and apply to the skin.

These are just three of the essential oils that might help you. Remember always check with your physician , if you are on medications, and follow the safety rules , i have written about in my other essential oil blogs. Less is always better, than more when using oils.
