The start of another exciting adventure!!

Here I sit, next to my Husband, in our GMC truck. We are driving to Va., on a .5O business .5O pleasure trip. We left the house about 010:00 this morning, it will be about a 10 hour drive for us. I absolutely love the drive, its always so real, and beautiful. This will be my first time going to Va. at this time of the year. We have both been to Virginia, together. Heavens, my Husband was born and raised in Va. So this is nothing new for him, I am glad he knows his way around, because I don’t! Lol!
  Whew! Its FREEZING outside! I think they said it was 30* at 4 am, this morning, when I was still up, packing & cleaning house. I didn’t to bed, until about 05:45, and 5 minutes later, my Husband texted and said he was headed home early, so I just stayed in bed, and waited for him to come home. We ended up saying we were going to get up, in an hour, and leave by 09:00. Ha Ha Ha! Yeah. Right! We totally messed that up! Well, the good thing is, that we are on the road, and well on our way.

I make it a weekly routine, to go to my parents farm, and catch up. {You never know why you have, till its gone.} My Aunt and Uncle, who have been to the farm numerous times over the years, may remember some of these trucks, and places shown in these pictures. This is my photography, so please do not steal it. Thank you. I will be posting some more captures, soon. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

NATIVE AMERICAN SWEETHEART III

image

As most of you know, I have been working on a custom piece, of a native girl, for a dear friend of mine. I have been sacking on finishing her up, and posting my progress, in the past few weeks, but I have had a change of heart on some of the details, so I decided to redo her, and here’s is the latest. I still have a lot to go, but this is a pretty good bit, If I may say so.

Intro: Goji Berry

I just want to make a super quick post, as I am seriously multitasking over here. I am supposed to be grocery shopping, instead, I am catching up on my to do list, and making some much needed calls.

  I was at Fox Hollows Farms, most of this morning, and If you have ever been visiting over there, you know you are sometimes, asked to try something out of the ordinary… Well today my mother had me try a Goji Berry, and I didn’t exactly want to, because I have been tricked on the past, but this time, I tried it, and made a funky monkey face, then we walked out to the greenhouse, and she gave me the facts, and she showed me the very much alive bush that she picked them off of. Pictures, facts, nutrition and more to come! Keep it here!

Mrs. Myers – Laundry Days

About mid October I was in Walmart, on a grocery and realised we were low on laundry detergent. I gathered all the needed groceries, and headed over to the laundry department. I was not thrilled with what I found, when I arrived at the correct isle; nearly empty shelves. There were a few off brands, most which were too highly priced, for such small bottles.
  After much adue, I wandered over to this cute little container, you can never judge one by its cover, or, in this case, by its container.
  I am never one to particularly love “man made” products, especially detergants and such, things that contain chemicals, and especially things that are harmful to animals.
  There is bound to be a special place in hell, just for people who are cruel to animals; a bunny with a pitchfork, poking and proding those cruel people, forcing them to jump off the steepest ledge, falling deep into the hottest part of the pits of hell…I got a bit off topic there, didn’t I… Moving on, … One of the things on the shelves, in the laundry department, was this bottle, a unique little bottle, {see below} I picked it up, opened it, and smelled it, waited for a min, as I studied the label, then smelled again.
  Normally, one would careless what it smelled like, but unless you or your loved ones have have had numerous allergic reactions to softeners, or detergents, you probally wouldn’t understand.
  My husband is highly allergic to certain things. One in particular, the scents of laundry detergents. Since I had little to choose from, on the isle, and this was the only one that I thought my hubby might be ble to withstand, I put it in the buggy, and headed off to the checkout. On the way home, from the store, I began to wonder if I really did make the right decision, or should I just have waited until the the shelves were restored…..? After I got home, I unloaded the car of all of the groceries, and put it all away, I eagerly got a pile of my clothes together, and grabbed this yummy smelling detergent, an headed off to the washer.

After putting the clothes in the washer, I examined the bottle more carefully, yes, I just had to smell it again! It smelled soooooooooooo good!!! As you can see, the label says “Lavender”, but in all true honesty, it smells like Baked Apple Pie to me! So good, i can almost taste it. I have loved using it, as you can tell, It is about half empty, I highly recommend this product!  It makes all of our linens smell absolutely amazing, oh, and they really spell fantastic when they’ve been washed in this, folded, packed away in storage, and then you go open the box, and you are engulfed in this yummy aroma!
