Halloween Bingo

Halloween Bingo fun for everyone. The evening is cold and wet. Everyone is concerned about trick or treating. So how about some fun at home for the young and old playing Bingo together. Halloween Bingo.

Decorations are all planned for the evening anyway. A visit to the Dollar Store or the costume shop was a huge help there. The pumpkins have been carved and setting on the front porch for all to view and enjoy.

Of course you have to have snacks with lots of fun things. Not just candy but cheese, salami, and some vegetables. A nice skeleton or a witch or two to share the good time. Halloween plates for all the goodies.

Here is a Halloween Bingo made specially for you all. Go to the Resource Library from Barb. Enter HELEN as pass word, and click on

https://selectionsfrombarb.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=5550&action=edit

  • The Halloween Bingo has 3 Master Sheets. Blank so all you have to do is lay your markers on them.
  • Download 2 sets of Bingo cards. Use one set for playing and the other cut up glue onto cut up poster board, or some type of card board. Use the cut ones for markers on your master board.
  • There are 12 Bingo cards. The cards are labeled 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b etc. You can use corn or bingo markers to put on the numbers. You don’t want to use regular markers because you want to use your bingo cards again and again.

We can’t forget prizes!! Think about putting them on a table and letting each person pick out their prize when they win, or if you think your family will respond better to them being wrapped, go for it.

Since this is so late for this year, take your time and set it up properly. You will be all ready for next year. Set it up to last for a few years. Put it away where no one can find it but you. HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

Essential Oils, a journal would nice.

Considering giving essential oils a try? It is alot of fun and certainly benficial to some. It all depends on what you are hoping to achieve.

I began using essential oils very slowly and now I’m really excited about learning more. Knew absolutely little about essential oils. Now use a diffuser with lavender at night to help sleep better. Some nights it works absolutely wonderful for me, but on other nights doesn’t work at all. Why?

Does the difference lie in what kind of a day, I had? Lazy and relaxed or very hectic with lots of stress? A day where nothing gets done? I honestly don’t know but since I don’t have small children I can’t use that as a stressor.

No matter what I want to continue to work and learn about essential oils. Work with people who are trying essential oils to find out if they are getting any good benefits . So I have an essential oil journal that I hope will help us all determine how and what essential oils benefit us and even why.

Fall is a good time to begin using essential oils as there are many essential oils that smell lovely and this is such a fun time of year for scents.

Think about using this Essential Oil Journal and see what you can find out:

  • Name of essential oil
  • date started
  • How many times a day are you using the oil?
  • Benefit of essential oil to you or person using it.
Includes cover, 2 sheets for benefits of oil, and 2 sheet for blends.

Traditions

We all grew up with traditions, some we really like and enjoy. Here were some of our traditions, getting up running to see what Santa brought. Making kieffles ( They are a Hungarian or Polish delicious delicacy that are very hard to stop eating). I really believe they are Hungarian. We used to bake them starting the day after Thanksgiving and it was a long day. Stopped making kieffles as family grown up and most have no time to help. They were a tradition. Easter egg hunts out the back yard when the weather was grand. Planning the big wedding, getting married and having a family. Eighteen grandchildren, two great grandchildren and we are still growing.

Making quilts for the grandchildren. They were not big quilts but almost the size of a twin bed. That tradition has been passed down and only God knows if it will become a tradition for the great grandchildren. Below is a picture (actually two pictures together to show one of the quilts). Finally got smart and had the mothers pick out the colors and fabric. The animals are a fish, a camel, a dove, a dog or a donkey, a turkey and a lion.

Two pictures showing what one of the 19 quilts looked like.

If you are interested in the directions for the above quilt, please send me your email and I will send them to you. This type of quilt has been around for many years and I found the pattern in a very old magazine. It is called the Sam Henry quilt and I have no idea where the original idea came from.

Traditions can be lots of fun to establish can be alot of fun to discuss and establish especially if you do it as a family. Older family, new family, blended family. Let everyone enter into the discussion. Why not think of it as a guessing game, which each family member has to participate. Drop all suggestions in a hat and draw.

Be sure and look at the traditions printable bundle to help you figure out the traditions you want to begin in your family. Go to my resource library for a look at the individual pages. The password is HELEN.

The tradition bundle.

Blogging and what is working?

Finding your niche!! Finding your niche!! Sounds like the start of a poem, but it isn’t as I am surely not able to compose a poem. Most of my thought processes have been put into finding my niche.

Are you having the same thoughts, what should be my niche and where should I go from here. All of a sudden you have this wonderful idea and think oh that would be a great niche. You think I will go right out there and do some research, and oh my goodness there are many blogs with the same idea you had.

So how do you find your niche. What are your ideas for finding your niche? Have you thought about all the things that you really are attracted to? What are your hobbies? Gardening, Landscaping, Woodworking, Writing, Art, and Sports. Maybe you are interested in politics, religion or television. What ever you determine is your niche or become really interested in, write on it. Focus on it.

When writing try to focus on one thing at a time. Do not jump around, but keep on target. You need a beginning, middle and an ending.

Life style is about the closest I can come to having a niche at this time. I can still pursue reflections on health, family, blogging and essential oils, under this umbrella.

Essential Oils, don’t forget to use them.

Essential oils can be used neat or put into blends, but you need to understand, which oils are capable of being used as stated above. Neat means the oil can be used alone. Blends are the oils which can be mixed together.

When using essential oils always remember less is more. Essential oils can be very powerful. It is very interesting to learn about them. When I read an essential oil article I am looking for how well the author can express themselves and how great their understanding of essential oils is.

I am certainly no expert but I am always trying to learn. Amazed when the light bulb goes off and I really get it.

Essential Oils can be an adventure for you. If you decide to try them, then be sure you don’t forget to use them. When someone tells me how anxious they are, how stressed they are, how much pain they are feeling, my suggestion is to try an essential oil. The biggest problem is the person keeps forgetting to use them. You at least a week to determine any benefit. Benefit good, you will want to continue with the essential oil.

Always consult with your medical professional if you have serious medical problems, or are pregnant.Do not use essential oils if you are pregnant. Don’t forget to include your mental health professional. Your health is very important and as we age we all realize how precious it is

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.

You are twenty and think the world belongs to you. All wrapped up in a big bow. Problem is now you have to begin looking at the world with the eyes of an adult. Wow! Here are some of the things you need to think about.

  1. School or training program finished! How much debt do you have?
  2. Where are you going to be living? Living with Mom & Dad may be your only option right now and there definitely has to be some guidelines. Adults in their 20’s think differently than adults in their late 40’s or early 50’s.
  3. What time do your parents expect you in? Too much drinking?? What is considered too much??
  4. Do you have a job ? If no what are you planning on doing with your day? Playing video games all day? I have a feeling that is not going to set well .
  5. Other discussions between you and your parents, should include what your role in maintaining the household is going to be. You want to talk about what will be your responsibility as far as your meals, your room, your laundry and of course any other costs.
  6. You may find that you are sensitive and have feelings you don’t know how to handle. It is key at this point in your life that you discuss your frustrations and feelings, thoughts, anxieties and relationships before you jump forward. Talk with a professional if necessary. Don’t hold back with the professional. Get help. It is blessedly beneficial as you are traveling your growing up journal.
  7. Always look at your life and where you want to be in a couple of years? Change what you don’t like and work on better outcomes.
  8. Outcomes such as getting a job, any job while you are looking for your niche. ‘
  9. Another outcome could be starting a savings account . Just a small one at first.
  10. Have an open discussion with your parents and try to work together on making things work out while you are finding your way.
  11. God Bless everyone who can relate in anyway. Take care!

Always remember you are an adult now, act like one. Want respect you have earn it. Enjoy the small changes that you make and look at each new day as an adventure.
