One big leaf left on our tree!

One big leaf left on our tree. There are a couple of smaller ones also, but this one is a big big one. It almost reminds me of a flower. You can see the leaves have not been raked up yet. On the list of things to do.

This morning we woke up to snow falling. The first snow is pretty and one of those things that make you feel awesome.

The snow has stopped and melted. It is wet and the wind is blowing. I took a picture of the this big leaf blowing next to a bird house and St. Francis. It reminded me of the old old song, I’m a lonely little petunia in an onion patch. I know you never even heard of that song.

It makes me think about feeling whelmed at times and wonder what to do next that makes sense. Everyone of us has what we believe are priorities but reality sets in and sometime these things just have to change.

Good key words here everyone will tell you and I, are focus, prioritize, organize, finish one thing before starting another, recognize limitations, be patient with yourself, be patient with those around you.

News flash, fun and family

Sharing some fun/exciting things with you – expecting our third great grand child. A boy would be nice, but little girls are always welcome. We are lucky to be able to watch one of them as she grows and develops, (Elena). Our other great grand daughter (Maria) lives far away so emails and texts are such a wonderful thing. Her parents are great about sending photos that make us laugh and smile.

I am in awe of how much the young absorb everything around them. I have very few toys left, but I do have some small animals Elena can play with. She has also fallen in love with an old apron of mine and wears it when ever she can. Her interest in different things is amazing, especially those that are a no, no. Once you tell her no, she is pretty good about just looking. One bad habit she has developed is a liking for potato chips. Takes after her great grandmother. We always check with Mom before letting her have any.

Life moves on for all of us. Some days you might wish you were young again. Other days you say no wouldn’t want that again. The main thing we need to remember is to be thankful for what we have and thank God daily.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Be safe!

Autumn, goals and the future.

Autumn and college football! Husband is glued to the television. He has been waiting and waiting for this. He has watched all the re-runs several times and was ready for the real thing.

The weather has been great not too hot this last couple of weeks. The fall flowers look beautiful and the yard has been well kept this summer. The fence is totally painted and next the bushes and shrubs will be trimmed to get ready for the cooler weather.

We are still wearing masks where ever we go and personally I am fine with that. We tend to stay at home as much as we can and even social distance when family is around. Some of our family we have not seen much of because they have had illnesses one person after another. Hoping everyone stays healthy as winter is right around the corner.

Important for all of us to remember to keep pursuing our good health. Especially in this trying time we have been facing. Enter into this fall with some great expectations for yourself. Keep yourself busy with school, hobbies, sports and reading. Maintaining a positive attitude, no matter what, is tough but needed. Doing nothing and feeling sorry for yourself can have an impact on your health.

Maintaining your good health takes work, just like having a blog takes work. Plan how you are going to adjust your food intake to keep yourself motivated to eat healthy. To keep interest in your blog going you have to decide how hard you want to work and what your goals for the rest of 2020.

Goals for 2020 – not many months left to accomplish those goals you set at the beginning of the year. Decide which of those goals you want to achieve and work really hard between now and then, on the one most important to you.

Autumn and Essential Oils

Essential Oils have become a part of our lives. That doesn’t mean we don’t take our regular medications or follow our physicians recommendations. Our journey with essential oils has come about slowly and we are researching what we use.

Have found cloves, peppermint and lavender a great blend to help with arthritis pain and pain associated with your neck and shoulders. Again not a cure all but certainly does get relief if it is used properly. That means not starting at the bottle or wondering if you should try it or not.

Used essential oils to help relieve the nerve pain, experienced by my husband after his bout with shingles. I am not making a cure all statement, just stating a fact the he had good response with the oils in relieving the chest pain. The relief is for several hours and then the burning returns. It seems to be improving each day, for which we are so thankful. You can tell when the burning does return.

If your physician tells you to consider getting Shingles vaccine be sure you consider doing that as you do not want to get shingles.

Autumn and fall right here with colors changing so we are going to try and use some new oils such as

  • Cinnamon Bark – Doesn’t the name alone make you think of Autumn and hot cinammon doughnuts? This essential oil might be helpful in an infection disease situation caused by a germ or parasite.
  • Peppermint – Long used to help with digestion, minty odor.
  • Cypress- Just sounds woodsy! You know that smell you notice when walking through a woods. Might be helpful to improve your circulation. Going to try it.
  • Eucalyptus Blue – sounds interesting doesn’t it. Maybe it will be helpful with your breathing?
  • Stress Away – need I explain further. You might be surprised.

Always important to be aware of any side effects that might occur when you are trying a new essential oil for the first time.

  • A skin test to make sure you are not having any reaction to the essential oil. Just a small amount on your skin. Don’t use water to wash it off. Put a little cooking oil on the spot, if you have a reaction.
  • Always store your essential oils in a dark cool area.
  • Do not use your essential oils on children, infants without reading all the information about using an essential oil.
  • Just like so many other things you need to be informed and safe.

Hope you will try Young Living essential oils. May cost more but quality is good.
