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. 😧

As I strive to live a chemical free lifestyle, I now only buy one cleaning product. I use Thieves Household Cleaner from Young Living.

This cleaner is an all-natural, essential oil infused 🍋 product.  It’s super concentrated, so when I buy a bottle, it lasts for months and months. I simply put a capful in a spray bottle, and fill the spray bottle with water. And I literally clean the whole house.

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!

Would you like to explore the advantages of a chemical free lifestyle? If you are new to oils, and haven’t tried this yet, I would love to send you a FREE sample of Thieves Household Cleaner.

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

Zeus

We got a new puppy yesterday. His name is Zeus, and he’s a German shepherd. He is 8 weeks old, and he already has us wrapped around his big paws!

We’ve been wanting to get another dog, a playmate for Zeke. Tim really wanted a German shepherd, so that’s what we looked for.

We brought him home last night, and Zeke just didn’t know what to think! I would guess he’s a little miffed that another dog is sharing our attention, and sharing his things. But, I’m sure he will learn to love him, and as Zeus grows, they will be great playmates and best friends.

Having a puppy in the house is a little like having a toddler again. Lol. I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep last night, and he follows us and Zeke around whenever we leave the room. I had two dogs in the bathroom with me this morning, lol. But, it’s totally worth it!

Isn’t he adorable?

Adventure

A couple of weeks ago, we went on an adventure. We took a ride back up to Marquette. Marquette is the home of Northern Michigan University. Christopher went to college there, and we fell in love with the area during our many trips while he was in school there. We had not been back up there since he graduated, so we decided to make a short visit.

It’s a long ride, but the beauty of northern Michigan is so worth the trip! We were all tired of riding by the time we got to the hotel. We checked in, and chilled out for a short time. We stayed at the same hotel that we usually stayed during our many trips there. But, the hotel had been completely remodeled. It was very nice!

We set right out to explore the sights that we love so much. We went to Presque Isle Park, Black Rocks, Little Presque Isle, spent time at multiple beaches along the shores of Lake Superior, dined at favorite restaurants, took lots of photos, visited the campus of NMU, which has also undergone some major changes, and Christopher and Adam climbed Hogsback mountain.

It was a great trip, and someday, we will visit again.

We also confirmed that long car rides and Misophonia do not go together very well. It was quite a stressful trip for Adam. His struggle is getting worse, as he has even more triggers now. I wish I could make it go away for him! But, since I can’t, I will do whatever I can to avoid the sounds, noises, action, etc., that trigger him.

I have a new portfolio of photos on 500px. There are pictures there from this trip. Check it out!

Quick Sale

Hi friends!

Just wanted to tell you about a quick sale happening at Young Living right now. From now through July 12th, four favorite oils are on sale for 15% each.

The oils in this sale are: 15ml bottles of Lavender, Lemon and Orange, and 5ml bottles of Frankincense.

These are 4 of the most popular Young Living oils. They are all staples in my home. Lavender is frequently called the “Swiss Army Knife” of oils because it’s so versatile. I love to diffuse it at bed time to promote restful sleep, but it is also great for skin support. Lemon and Orange are both uplifting scents and are great in the diffuser. I use Lemon oil frequently in cleaning. And Frankincense, well I call it Liquid Gold. You can diffuse it to promote a calm atmosphere for prayer or quiet time. It, too, is amazing for skin support. I have been applying it to my incisions to support healthy healing. I also love to put a drop or two on my forearms when I know I’m gonna have a stressful day.

Don’t delay, these sale prices are only good through July 12th.
