Sustainability


Sustainable documentary is older but no less pertinent.
A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face — soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use — to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.
The narrative of the film focuses on Marty Travis, a seventh-generation farmer in central Illinois who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness. Determined to create a proud legacy for his son, Marty transforms his profitless wasteland and pioneers the sustainable food movement in Chicago.
Sustainable travels the country seeking leadership and wisdom from some of the most forward thinking farmers like Bill Niman, Klaas Martens and John Kempf – heroes who challenge the ethical decisions behind industrial agriculture. It is a story of hope and transformation, about passion for the land and a promise that it can be restored to once again sustain us.

Leave False Promises Behind


I totally appreciate Aloe Fleur de Jouvence.

I've been using it for sometime. And believe me over the years I've tried different products even sold Jafra Skin Care and loved it but nothing compares.
Believe me there are some fantastic skin care lines available

but this works for me. Give it a consider!

I spent quite some time sick, on medications and then infection & surgery that re-arranged my jaw/face.  
I spent months with my face swollen and seemed like
nothing I could do helped. Talk about self-conscious and not wanting to go out in public. Let alone do live facebook, google hang-outs or videos with myself in them. 

I never was a beauty queen, don't want to be one either but
thankful I'm seeing dramatic improvement being able to begin with Forever Aloe Fleur de Jouvence again.

I say all this to emphasize Aloe Fleur de Jouvence and it's restorative effects for anyone willing to take the time to care for their face. 

We are worth taking good care of ourselves and if we allow busyness and family responsibilities as an excuse to not slow down and care for ourselves we pay the price.
The few minutes in the morning and evening to care for ourselves and feel good about it will actually contribute to feeling even better about the responsibilities we have.
I say this out loud to myself as well from time to time. 

My sister,Julie is a certified beautician and we are hopeful very soon to do a 'live' facial demonstration for everyone with the products.

Today I'd like to share a couple videos from the wonderful Sharon Smith in her spa. Both are videos are similar but I believe you will appreciate what she's doing.
This is a video Sharon did several years ago. The look of the products have changed but they still contain stabilized aloe and all the same wonderful ingredients.






I'm including the recipes and products Sharon is using below.

Also doing some cleaning and purging at the homestead.

Evening of Relaxation and Peace

Rest and be Refreshed

Good evening. How's your night going? Are you getting a little relaxation and refreshing? 

I came home and sat outside with the dogs for awhile. Chilled out and relaxed a bit. 

I spent a few hours today waiting for man to get new wireless modem installed for internet and then jeep overheated when picking up Leyden from school. Thankful for my kids who care, go the extra miles and got us picked up 
and taken care of.

Are you kicking back tonight or did you go out to do something nice for yourself?

I'd love to hear what kind of relaxing or fun things you did or are doing!

Fridays are Fantastic. Dogs Know So



Good Morning and Happy Friday

It's one beautiful and sunshiny day outside today.
It's unusually cold. I think around 63 F.
Most would tell me it's Iowa lol


It's funny I have one dog who lays in the house on his bed and the other one begs to go outside no matter the temperature.
I'm waiting for computer guy to come change wireless modem so figured I better get this out before my internet 
gets temporarily quiet. 


Any plans for today and the weekend? 


I'll be here online, a bit of cleaning and errands.
My cleaning fairy has been gone so long. 


Look forward to sharing more soon. Enjoy your morning!

Cinnamon Roll Warmer Melts:Test Batch


I just made a batch of cinnamon roll warmer melts.
The next step is trying one in a warmer.
Hand rolling them is a little tricky because I have to do
it quickly when the wax cools to a certain stage.
Otherwise the wax breaks.

I'll keep you updated!

Fleur de Jouvence: A Treat to Make Your Face Smile


Good Evening!

It's late and due to unexpected changes in plans I'm a bit behind in sharing.
Before I call it a nite, I wanted to share this Skin regime
I use from Forever.
I cleanse, moisturize and revitalize each day with Fleur de Jouvence. 
If my face could smile it would but instead it radiates with feeling clean and revitalized.
Until tomorrow I'm leaving you with a video with Sharon Smith to watch below and if you can't wait and you'd like to know more about Fleur de Jouvence you can click the image of the set below the 
video and learn more.
Until tomorrow...Enjoy



P.S. I'll be sharing more from Sharon Smith soon

Chiropractics Alternatives


Good Evening, Hope your day has went well.
I've had a busy day today and realized my back is really hurting again. Time to go back to my 
NUCCA chiropractor again. 

Aproximately 5 years ago I went to a osteopathic dr.
I'd had a bad respiratory infection and had to sleep sitting up for a few weeks. Because of doing so my 
back was not in good shape.

The dr proceeded to push on different places on 
my back and I experienced 
severe pain. He didn't stop until he decided to.
I went home not feeling any better and actually worse.

The next day I noticed my lip drooping and my left arm felt numb. In another day, I couldn't drink without liquid spilling out of my mouth and had limited use of my left arm.I went to my regular dr and was asked if I looked in the mirror.
No,  hadn't and was afraid to. She told me my whole left side of the face was 
drooping and thought I had a stroke.

I was sent to the emergency room and after 12 hours of being there was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. 

To be quite honest, I'd been wanting to go to Dr Deb Sesker who is a NUCCA chiropractor in my area but initial
visit is costly.
Guess what this pushed it! I made the appointment the
  next day and went.
Within 30 minutes of being in her office and her adjusting my neck axis, I had full feeling in my lips and arm. No more drooping and feeling terrified of not being able to function.

Dr Deb recommended I never let a dr of any sort ever push on my back again.
I took her seriously and still do today.

Since going to Dr Deb, I've discovered some 
interesting things.

I've discovered poor posture causes neck imbalances in the upper neck region which leads to many different ailments in the body. Chronic pain, tiredness, tinnitus, dizziness, and a weakened immune system are just a few of the conditions that can occur. I've also found some exercise that benefit me greatly. Normally I don't have to go for a visit for a year.
There are times it's more frequent yet compared to regular chiropractics I had went to on a weekly
basis the results are superior.

I in no way want to make any medical claims or
say that everyone's experience will be as mine has been.

I've share a few videos below to help you learn more about NUCCA and also some exercise I do with my neck.
I hope you find these helpful and might decide 
to find a NUCCA Chiropractor in your area.

It's a Spring Thing


It's gorgeous weather here in Iowa. We've had some cooler mornings than I like but overall it's sooo nice.
Grass is turning green, flowers blooming and my roses are budding. Oh yea!

It's got me almost wishing for summer time.
And that brings me to the new 'Coconut Warmer Melts' and Neapolitan Soap Pops.

Coconut reminds me of being on the beach and having fun and Neapolitan Soap Pops--I love ice cream any time of year but summer is the best for it. 

What's that got to do with Spring?
After a long winter, cold and dreary weather,
my mind is on the beauty of spring and 
the coming summer months.
Check these out and don't drool just get yours ordered. 



Coconut with a Touch of Vanilla
Soy Warmer Melts
Star Shapes
$3.00




Are you or your kids a Neapolitan Ice Cream lover?
Your all going to love this. But don't eat it.
 This Neapolitan Pop with the fragrance of the real
thing is going to be irresistible.
I make these as ordered so usually need a
few days to get them done for you.

$5.00
