New Year Greetings


How many of you love the cold weather?   I am not a fan but I do tolerate it if there is snow.  On a cold streak right now in Missouri and a bit of snow and ice.  As long as I don’t have to be on a busy highway I love to drive in it.  Everything is so bright at night and you can hear a pin drop.  My house is warmer with a bit of snow on the roof and it just refreshes the dull winter time for me.

This time of year tea is my choice of drink.  All kinds.  Sometimes I just drink warm water with a drop of YL Lemon and some stevia.  It’s delicious and doesn’t charge up my blood sugar and the lemon especially in the morning gets the liver ready for the day. Couple of gluten free ginger cookies on the side.


I crave sunshine, warm beaches and cutting the grass this time of year.  Yes I LOVE to cut grass.  The sunshine and smell invigorate me.  I seem to be drawn to anything with citrus or refreshing food during the cold months.  Like yesterday I went out to eat somewhere I don’t usually go to, little pricey, but it is restaurant week here and I felt drawn to this restaurant.  Maybe something seafoodie ( like the beach ), refreshing salad, you know.  So I got a lobster tamale for the appetizer, beautiful salad with beets and goat cheese and walnuts… pretzel crusted trout and creme brulee.  UM YUM!  Hit the spot.  The only thing missing was the beach.


Been running my diffuser with all kinds of good smells from Young Living.  Yesterday I had Spearmint and Grapefruit in it.  Today I may do a bit of work on pulling some tax info. together.  It is that time of the year.  The Nitro helps me wake up ( not like caffeine… just a normal feeling wake up), Clarity I put in the diffuser and Highest Potential I put on my wrist or the back of my neck.  If you have never tried quality essential oils you don’t know what you are missing.  I use them for my everyday life now and so glad I have them.12106819_908316859253167_1835602441872177522_n

I have been using fermented food for a while.  Kefir, yogurt and kombucha but hadn’t really incorporated a fermented veggie or at least one that I really like.  They are so good for the digestion.  At my age it is a bit compromised from too many wrong choices over the years and I am trying to treat my gut with more respect these days.  I love this product.  If you like sauerkraut you will like it.  All the fermented foods acquires a time of adjustment but over time I now eat them daily.  10447632_933694843382035_4888381761668592540_n

Going to a party this week where we will be making bath bombs.  This is a beautiful heart filled with rose petals and epsom salt and YL Joy oil.  The smell and feel is divine. Great  DIY Valentine’s Day gift.


Please let me know if I could send you a sample of some of the Young Living oil… I’ve got a house full that I would love to share !12115527_903543316397188_600123877710695416_n
