I've decided to stay in this morning and clean house. Yep, not one of my more interesting endeavors but hey, somebody's gotta do it!! I do love that clean smell though and I do like everything in its place. I just finished with the kitchen and it's clean and smells so good and hubby cleaned the bathroom all excepting sweeping and mopping and I'm fixing to do that. Yep, he's a jewel!!!
After I cleaned house I got out my essential oil diffuser and started it burning. I put in 2 drops of lemon essential oil, 2 drops of bergamot essential oil and 4 drops of lavender essential oil. This is supposed to purify indoor air. I probably didn't need to burn the oils since the windows were open yesterday but I just love the scent. I use my diffuser a lot in the Winter when I can't open the windows. It's essential when we are ill or not feeling well, for one reason or another, or after people have visited who had colds and now I feel like there are germs everywhere; but I suppose I really didn't need it today. It's just nice to have the wonderful scents circulating in my home.
The weather is now supposed to get dramatically colder and somehow folks, we've just got to get our heads wrapped around it and settle ourselves to the fact that Winter will be here in no time. I've turned to thinking about my herbal medicines. I've been downstairs today compiling a list of needs and wants insofar as essential oils and herbs I cannot grow myself. The first part of November I'm putting in an order with Mountain Rose Herbs and between what I've grown and what I'm ordering I will be well on my way to enjoying my Winter. I've got big plans for salves and tinctures and all sorts of goodies!!
Tonight Hubby and I are going out with some friends for Mexican food and then coming back here for dessert and coffee. I'm not real big on desserts and had a terrible time coming up with something but decided on a rather plain but appropriate dessert. We are having old-fashioned Custard Pie. After all the spicy food I thought that would be perfect! See, I told you!! Desserts are just not my thing . . . but I keep trying!!
Have a nice week-end and I'll talk to you again on Monday.
