H e l l o b e a u t i f u l s !
How are you?
I have had a pretty good week so far.
I visited my cardiologist for a “stress test” yesterday. Dr B asked me if I have been walking or working out . . . as he bumped up the treadmill to get my heart rate up.
After two and a half months of the first phase of my lifestyle change, there is a clear indication that the inside of me is healthier. The most important muscle of my being is stronger.
. . . beat . . . BEAT.
(Every successful personal transformation begins on the inside . . . doesn’t it?)
I’m “well”on my way to that once in my lifetime dance next Summer!
Every year, about this time, Mr D and his “buds” go to Eastern Washington for their annual get a way. I plan to spend some time organizing, purging and painting here on 34, and help my parents with a couple projects at their home.
I am also planning a little “me” time in the evenings.
I have a nickname*** for the practice of stocking my bathroom shelf with coconut oil, essential oils, sugar, salts, citrus and mini mixing bowls a couple of years ago.
When I read “skin cheffing” on Valerie’s blog, I thought . . . Lynne, why haven’t you shared your whim on 34?
I began my home spa inspired by recipes found on Pinterest.
Then I thought . . .
Why not make my own, affordable and fresh versions of very famous oils?
Mine may not have a fragrance that lingers as long as Jo’s, but mixed with sugar and smoothed on before a shower, or whipped with Epsom salts and melted into the bath is pure decadence. (+Plus . . . you cannot beat grocery store and farmers market prices.) #freshC
October nights are perfect for the mixing of one’s own practical magic . . .
. . . and a movie.
