Monday Mid Morning Slump
Yesterday was one of our many fun times with the Grands. Having them all together is a blast, it's like watching a pack of puppies play but......Lord it can get overwhelming!!! Having one or two of them alone....Pure pleasure :) Papaw has been working with each of them this spring to build "burdie" houses. My original plan was to have a cute "burdie" yard art thing in the back yard. Not gonna happen, the kiddo's are so proud of their houses they just have to take them home.
So I have been really enjoying the diluted Lavender oil blend I mixed up for a good nights sleep. It's been close to 2 months since we added this to our night time ritual with AMAZING results!! Last night when I reached for my oil blend I remembered it was pretty much empty. Durn, since I have some essential Lavender in the bathroom I figured I would just freshen the bottle up with some of that. BIG mistake!!!!! I am SO sensitive to all of the oils and smells of all sorts I really must use a carrier oil to dilute everything!!!! I was too lazy to go down staires and mix it right for my body.
So what was the result in my over use of lavender? I was WIDE awake until after 3:00 AM, Ugh!!!!!
We are love, love, loving our journey into essential oils, however the suggestions, tips, warnings, whatever, that all oils don't work the same on everyone is TRUE!!!! You can bet the first thing this morning I diluted the heck out of my sleepy time roller ball blend.
Today I am so thankful for many things.
A house that is quite. Hubby has returned to the office, wonderful buddies we love to death visit has ended
A beautiful crock pot that is doing its thing for tonight's supper
A washer and dryer that is in working order and doing some OT today.
A fridge full of leftover so I don't have to cook lunch
A sweet little Beagle who stayed up late with me last night and is napping the day away instead of driving me crazy wanting to run in and out "Hunting"
