The Fall Season

Fall officially arrives today. It certainly doesn’t feel like it here, though. As I’m writing this, it’s 85 degrees outside. It will remain in the mid to upper 80’s until sometime next week. I’m not complaining, though, I love hot, summery weather!

Summer is my favorite, but I like the fall season too. I love to see the leaves changing colors. I’m hoping we can take a drive or two this fall to get some really great photos of the fall colors. We can do more things during the week now, since Adam has an unconventional school schedule.

I would also like to make a run to Frankenmuth. I love it there! I’m sure there will be great photo ops there, but I love the chicken dinner at Zehnders. It’s worth the drive! But, I also love to go through all the shops and, of course, hit the outlets at Birch Run.

Of course, the fall season would not be complete without a trip to a cider mill. It’s fun, and yummy, to get the freshly made donuts and cider, and fresh-picked apples. Photo ops there, too! Yep, still love photography and I’m excited about more adventures with my camera this season.

Another thing I will be doing this season is getting ready for ski season. Yep, I’m gonna buy my own skis and boots this year so I don’t have to rent them. Adam is eager for the snow to fly so he can get back on his snowboard. Hoping for more trips to the slopes this winter.

The biggest thing I’m doing this fall is hosting a bridal shower for Sarah and Christopher! I’m so excited! There is a lot to do, but it’s fun because it’s such an exciting day! The wedding is fast approaching!

What are your plans for the fall season?

Different Uses

So, remember when I told you about the new Young Living products that were introduced at the convention this summer? I told you that I wanted to try the new Seedlings Baby Wipes.

Well, I got them and I love them! No, there are no baby bottoms here to wipe, and haven’t been for a lot of years. I got the wipes to use as makeup removers. They work great! They are super soft and smell so good, and, best of all, I know I’m using a product that is made with only good ingredients. No yucky stuff in these wipes!

I also love to use these wipes as dryer sheets. Yep, that’s right! Throw one in (two if the load is really big) the load and my laundry comes out smelling good and soft and with no static. So awesome!

Our puppy, Zeus, is 4 1/2 months old now. He has grown so much, I can’t believe how big he is! He is almost as big as Zeke.

He is growing and learning. He sits on command to get his leash on to go out and to come back in. Adam taught him to shake. He is learning to walk well on the leash. He is a little stubborn, though, and we have to work with him consistently to keep the training going smoothly. He is fully potty trained, no accidents in the house since his first two weeks or so with us.

We are working on socialization by walking him more, taking him in the car more often. We need to take him out more, as well as Zeke.  We bought some harnesses and seat belts for both of them. It makes a huge difference when they are in the car. So much easier and so much safer for them. They are both in training now. We’ve had 4 private training sessions and Zeke is ready for group classes. Zeus, however, is not, lol. He will be going for a day train, where he spends the whole day at the training facility. We’ll see how that goes!

I love them!! 🐾

Ningxia Red

Have you heard of Ningxia Red? Oh my, so much goodness!

Ningxia Red is a wellness drink from Young Living. It combines the wolfberry with essential oils and fruit juices to make an amazing, tangy drink full of antioxidants. Staying above the wellness line is important to me, so I love drinking a shot of Ningxia Red every morning, just an ounce or two. Sometimes I add a drop of one of the vitality essential oils to my Ningxia shot. So good!

The premium starter kit from Young Living comes with two packets of Ningxia Red. When I got my starter kit a few years ago, I was afraid to try the Ningxia, and the packets sat unopened for quite some time. I belong to several oily groups on Facebook, and I would see people post regularly about how much they loved the Ningxia Red. So, I got brave, lol, and tried mine. I was pleasantly surprised at the taste. I’m not sure what I was expecting it to taste like, but it was very good!

Now, I don’t like to run out of it. It’s that good! And it’s that good for me!
