Majestic Creatures

We had the opportunity to see the beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales over the weekend. They were in the parking lot of our local Meijer store to make a ceremonial delivery to the store.

We watched as each horse was led out of the trucks. They got groomed, dressed in their gear and then hitched to the wagon. They are truly majestic creatures!

Once all the horses were ready and hitched, the wagon drivers climbed up into their seats and Clyde, the Dalmation dog, climbed up as well. Then they drove around to the front of the store to make their delivery.

Watching them in action in so amazing! They are just beautiful!

They are at our county fair this week, so we will see them again there. They present perfect photo ops for photographers.

Have you seen the Budweiser Clydesdales?

It is made with plant based ingredients and infused with essential oils. It is free from SLS, dyes, SLES, formaldehyde, phosphates and synthetic perfume.

The fresh citrus scent is very pleasing.

You can’t go wrong with Thieves dish soap!

Inspiration

What inspires you?

As a photographer, yes I just called myself a photographer, I am inspired by a lot. I love to shoot nature shots, like flowers, trees, landscapes, plants, etc. I love capturing the beauty of a flower! But, I also love capturing lots of other things as well.

I like to use my macro extension tube to get macro shots of bugs, leaves, really anything. Your whole perception of something changes when you see it through a macro lens. I would love to get a real macro lens someday, instead of using the extension tube. Maybe I could ask Santa for one this year.

Our dogs are also favorite subjects for me. Zeus, the new puppy, doesn’t sit still for long unless  he’s sleeping, but it’s fun to try to catch him with the camera. And Zeke, well, he’s easy to get shots of, although I’m sure he’s tired of my camera in his face, lol.

I love to go on adventures with my camera. And it doesn’t even have to be a far away adventure. Sometimes it’s cool just to take the camera and go into town, or any local place and get some shots. Our trip to Colorado last Christmas was my favorite camera excursion so far. I just love the mountains, and the scenery out there is very inspiring!

I’m going to attempt to do senior pictures for Adam myself. I know he’s not going to be into sitting for pictures at all, so maybe if it’s me behind the camera, he’ll be a little more willing. If I can get great pics of flowers and all those things I love to capture with the camera, then surely I can get some great shots of Adam! Fingers crossed.

Lavender

Lavender essential oil is a must have at our house. It’s commonly referred to as the swiss army knife of oils. That’s because it’s useful for so many things.

I love to put lavender oil in my diffuser at bedtime. It helps to promote a restful night of sleep. If you struggle at all with sleep issues, as I do, lavender oil should be on your list of oils to never be without!

Lavender oil is also amazing for skin support! Our new puppy, Zeus, loves to bite/nip/chew on anything and everything. Including us, lol. I love to put lavender oil on the scrapes and scratches I get from our new little fur ball.

Lavender is also great when combined with other oils. I get great support for seasonal issues when I combine lavender with lemon oil and peppermint oil. I put them in a roller bottle and apply as needed. Really great! This combo is also great in the diffuser.

Fresh Veggies

I went to my local Farmers Market this morning. They are open every Saturday morning, and, during the summer months, they are also open on Tuesday mornings. I try to get there as frequently as I can.

I have a small garden, with only tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers and parsley planted. I have been enjoying the cucumbers, they’re so good fresh from the garden. I have a lot of tomatoes, but no red ones yet. I picked the first green pepper yesterday and enjoyed it with lunch today. I have cut parsley multiple times.

Because my garden is small, I like to supplement it with veggies from the Farmers Market. Today, I got zucchini, yellow squash, green beans and sweet corn. I also got eggs, some sunflowers and a couple homemade sweet treats.

The market was really busy this morning, which is awesome for all the vendors there. I love to buy locally!

Do you shop at your local Farmers Market? What do you like to get there?

If you know me, you know I clean for a living, and have for many years. Maybe too many years, lol. 😜

I’ve used a lot of different cleaning products through the years, filled with nasty chemicals. 👎 I never considered what all those chemicals were doing to me, or why I would wheeze and cough and have an irritated throat and irritated sinuses while cleaning. 😷 And let’s not even think about what was happening in my body once all those chemicals were in my bloodstream. 😧

I clean the whole bathroom with it, yes, even the toilets.🚽 I clean my kitchen with it, wash floors with it, clean windows, spots on carpet, outdoor furniture, inside my car, literally anything! It’s been especially great for puppy messes 🐶 while we potty train our new little fur baby. It’s safe for pets and kids, and smells amazing!

Who knew?

What?? I just used Lemongrass essential oil to remove my nail polish! Holy cow! I didn’t know that was possible. No more nasty-smelling nail polish remover for me. I love the smell of lemongrass essential oil, so I will love using it this way. One more step toward a chemical free life.

Life with a puppy!

It really is like having a toddler in the house! I’m so tired today, so I busted out my EN-R-GEE essential oil. I don’t really care for the smell of this oil, so I put it on the bottom of my feet. It helps keep the pep in my step, especially on a day like today, when I’m dragging.

He’s adorable, and I love him so much, but he has a lot of energy! Lol
