Refreshing Morning Dew

Morning Dew Bar Soap-$8.50/free shipping anywhere
Hey everyone. Happy Thursday!
Everyday is a day for gratitude and Thursdays I specifically focus more on being thankful and grateful.
Today is no exception.

I'm grateful for the internet and computer cooperating to be here again. In addition, I've been trying to share the soaps I've created and things just weren't happening. But finally!!!
Today I'm sharing 'Morning Dew', Refreshing Morning Dew in a moisturizing and natural bar soap, one of my handcrafted soaps.

I have plans for a new page for the soaps and I'll get there. For now I'll share on the main page. 
And today I'm shareing, the Refreshing Morning Dew Soap Bar.
Morning Dew Bar Soap-$8.50/free shipping anywhere

Before I go any further, I want to go over some important things about soaps.

Have you purchased soaps promising all kinds of moisturizing benefits only to discover your itchy and your skin is dry as can be after bathing!
If you have, join the majority who believed what their promised.

Much of the soaps sold in stores today isn't soap. Rather it's a bar of detergent.
Imagine that, we bath or shower in a detergent like washing our clothing. Yikes!

Detergents are petroleum based products like kerosene or gasoline is made with.
Yikes again!

So is it a wonder our skin feels dry, itchy and tight!

Alkali is usually the culprit in soaps causing irritation.
There are other ingredients in store bought soaps that are dangerous to our health and can cause skin irriations. Some of these ingredients are alcohol, BHT, Triclosan (commonly found a lot in anti-bacterial soap) and a most common ingredient is sodium tallowate. 
Tallow is desired in conventional soaps because it makes mass production go well, makes a hard bar of soap, and is inexpensive and plentiful. 

Because most of us are now aware of the harmful ingredients in soaps and how it does an injustice to our skin.
And many like yourself now want products that are healthy, good for our skin and enviroment.

Which brings us to the best of the best-Handmade/Handcrafted soaps.

Handcrafted Soaps by Home at Hearth & Beyond

My soaps are soothing, can be comforting to some skin ailments, and can be benefical to those with sensitive skin.

Handmade Soap is Good for the Body

As adults our skin covers aproximately 20 square feet of our body.
It's the largest human organ and our first line of defense against dehydration, temperature, infection and harmful substances.
Why not give your skin the care it deserves, making a bath/shower a gentle and soothing experience.

Handmade Soap is Good for Our Well Being

Most of us have a somewhat hectic life or it can be at times. We take so little time for ourselves to nurture and care for ourselves. 
Morning Dew, Handcrafted Soap can offer a simple indulgence, an opportunity to relax and pamper yourself!
Treat yourself or someone you care about with a natural, fragrant bar of Morning Dew

Go ahead, make a decision to indulge & pamper yourself daily, order Morning Dew, a moisturizing, soothing, and gentle bar of the fresh, Morning Dew.

Each 4.2 of bar is made with Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Mineral Water, Natural Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide and Mica

Each bar is $8.50, with free shipping and ships anywhere!

From Chronic Disease to Freedom

Happy Wednesday. 
How's it going? 
You probably had your ☕️coffee or tea this morning but don't overlook your inside health! 
Forever Aloe drinks are part of a healthy regime to help you get it happening! 
Drink in the benefits of Forever’s aloe vera gel in the powerful line of drinks. 
Why drink aloe? 
Aloe Vera supports your digestive system, promotes a healthy immune system and helps you maintain natural energy levels.

Try Forever's selection of gel flavors with a high concentration of inner-leaf aloe vera gel and other delicious drinks made with aloe.
If you'd like to know more, do stop over and learn more at the link below.

 Not so long ago I got very sick.
I couldn't breathe well, was hospitalized several times and eventually was diagnosed with a chronic disease affecting my lungs, had to be on oxygen most of the time. 

It was a very scary time for me!
For a person used to being in control of things in life, I had no control over anything, especially my health!

Dear friends of mine in UK sent me a box.
Was I ever surprised when I opened it!

I began drinking the Forever Aloe Drinks and taking each of the other's daily. Of course, I was skeptical if any of this would do me any good.

I was happy beyond words to start noticing in a few weeks I could breath better and overall continued to improve in my lung function. And my overall body felt so different. I had energy again, yeah!

Today several years later I don't use oxygen, and am doing really well.
As a friend of mine eluded to in a post I read early today, "I didn't have to wait until I was on my death bed to wish I'd done more to be happy". I'm alive and well and I'm
and healthy!
 I am grateful for life in so many ways!

So... I made a decision to become a business owner and offer Forever Living Products to others!
If this speaks to you, great! You can learn more on my site by clicking the 'Join Button'

I'm sharing a bit of my story in hopes it may be helpful to you. I can't promise Forever Living products will reverse a chronic disease but can share the 'proof in the pudding' of my life!! 

I don't know where you are but here the FDA and other regulatory systems in the US tell me I can't make any medical claims to products.
 But I can share my story and let you decide if you'd like to try Forever Aloe Drinks and get your immune system and gut health on track!
And always, always I offer a refund if you've truly tried the product and it isn't do anything for you!
All you need to do is give it a try, if isn't working, send me an Email and we'll make arrangement for your refund.

Our Saturday Chill

It's been a few days since I've shared and it's time to get my rear in gear and let you know what we're up to here. 

We had a freeze warning here last night so had to cover everything I planted. 
This morning I uncovered everything and all plants were doing well. Yeah

The dogs and I spent some time outside today. It wasn't as warm as I'd like but the dogs didn't mind as you can see in the video above.

I hope your having a great weekend!
What have you been up to?
Let me know in the comments.

What are your plans for Mother's Day?
Do share in the comments. It might give some ideas to others needing a few ideas to make it an amazing day. 
Make it a super special day for yourself, Moms!

Have a great night!

Until next time.

Sunday Showers and the Comforting Aroma of Coffee

Good morning and the best Sunday to everyone.
It's a warm morning and the rain showers smell so fresh and refreshing.

It's not forecast to rain much and sun will be out soon I'm certain. 

It's been a busy week for me working outside, enjoying the nice, dark, and rich soil I have to prepare my garden areas.
I thought I'd do a little review of what I've been up to for you. I hope you enjoy!

I've prepared an area to attract the Hummingbirds with beautiful flowers and soon will be adding a water fountain to attract them.

Below is a video and of the beautiful Hummingbird in a water fountain. I'm also including a link to share more of what I learned about this amazing and unique bird. 

I worked on my area for the potatoes and planted onions and sweet potatoes in the are as well.

 As well as planted the watermelon, cantelope, cucumbers, and egg plant. 

I also took cuttings in hopes of restarting a lilac tree.
The previous owners here cut down a lot of the fruit trees and did damage to others.
I have these cuttings in water but will be putting them in dirt soon. They don't start as well in my experience putting them in water.

In a different area I planted strawberries and Roma tomato starters. I'll be adding hay to keep weeds down and protect them soon.

I also planted more strawberries near my clothes line pole and a container of strawberries for my granddaughter.

I'm excited the Raspberry bush is looking awesome and can't wait to have some raspberries soon hopefully!

I still have more to plant and a lawn to mow but I'm so thankful to have so much accomplished.

Yesterday I made a video of our Saturday Chill Time with the dogs and thought I'd share as well. It's below with link to my 'Cat's Meow Group' following it.

 I hope you have enjoyed my recap of what I've been up to. Please do let me know your thoughts and if you enjoyed in the comments below. Thank you!

P.S. if your reading this somewhere else online. Do stop over and enjoy what I'm doing with gardening, hummingbirds and more.

Bathing, Fluttering and Licking

Are you one of the many who love seeing these beautiful little creatures flit around with their wings seeming to go 50 miles an hour?
Actually their wings beat aproximately 50-200 flaps per second, depending on the direction their going, their surroundings and purpose of their flight.

These brightly colored and mesmerizing birds can actually fly 30 miles an hour.

I really enjoy putting up Hummingbird feeders but this year I decided to learn a lot more about them.
I'm only going to highlight a few things today.

1. I had no idea Hummingbirds don't drink the water in the bird bath. Rather they bathe in it, cleaning their feathers. They get their hydration from the hummingbird nectar and nectar from flowers.

So I'm getting this bird bath above with a fountain. 
Hummingbirds are really tiny and won't go in a regular bird bath unless it has rocks they can sit on while they bathe or a fountain. The sound of the fountain also attracts them and especially if you have it near flowers that are colorful. 

I'm an affiliate for Amazon and that's where I found the above 3-Tiered Pedestal Water Bird Bath with Fish Design Floor Fountain if your interested in this one or looking at others perhaps.
 It's $39.99 if you have Amazon Prime too and shipping is fairly quick.

You can purchase at the link below and/or look around at others as well.

Bleeding Heart Red
Flowers such as Bleeding Heart and Bee Balm really trip their trigger. And they enjoy the nectar from these types of flowers.
You can find them at your local greenhouse or order them on Amazon:

Bee Balm, Lavender

2. A second thing I learned is Hummingbirds don't drink from the hummingbird feeder. Instead they lick the nectar with their fringed and forked tongues.
Capillary action along the fringe of their tongue helps draw nectar up into their throats so they can swallow.
A hummingbird can lick 10 to 15 times per second while feeding. To me this is kind of amazing and I had no idea.
Hummingbirds digest natural sucrose—the sugar found in floral nectar—in 20 minutes with 97 percent efficiency for converting the sugar into energy.

Hummingbirds need lots of nectar for all the energy they expand flapping those wings and flying.

3. The third bit of information I learned is that in spite of a Hummingbirds little size they are one of the more aggressive birds.
They will regularly attack blue jays, crows, and hawks that infringe on their territory. You may often find you have one dominant Hummingbird that guards all the feeders, chasing intruders away.

Very amazing for such beautiful little birds.
I'll be paying attention to how this plays out here.

One more little tidbit I stumbled upon is: 

Normally Hummingbirds are not native to UK but I did find that two rare Amazilia hummingbirds from Ecuador were an addition to the London Zoo around Easter of 2008 - and the only members of their species on show in Britain. I'm not finding the birds anywhere on their page so perhaps these delicate birds didn't survive captivity. Or they didn't survive the fire that closed the zoo in 2017, only opening again in 2019. Then the Corona Virus. It does seem like a fun place to go though once this virus passes. 

If your aware of any Hummingbirds in UK, England or the like, I'd really like to hear about it. 

Well, I am wrapping up on Hummingbirds for today. I may share more at another time because these birds are definitely of interest to me. Perhaps I'll be quick enough to get some pictures of them. lol
Do share your thoughts in the comments on these delightful birds if you have some where your located and if you have Hummingbird Feeders for them. 

I hope you enjoy the remainder of the day.
Until next time.

A Good Afternoon to Relax

Good afternoon. 
I hope your Thursday is going very well. 

I haven't posted for several days due to internet dropping out a lot. Thankful it seems to be resolved now. Yeah

The dogs and I have been outside some before it got too hot. I have most of my hay for the hay garden moved to a different location.
Doesn't she look innocent lol
Since I have a dog who thinks she's a garden tiller lol
and was digging up the area I originally chose, it was time to plan something different. 

I'm getting ready to get some relaxing time in before I play with the kitty and put my starter plants in bigger pots.
I lost a few plants putting them out too early so now I'm waiting until any threat of cold weather is gone.

Thanks for following along with today's rambles.
Have a wonderful afternoon.

Oh It's Saturday

I hope your Saturday is a good one.
I hope your finding lots of reasons to enjoy your day.

It's a windy out here but a nice day out.
I have been taking breaks and going outside and enjoying the fresh air. 

Rusty April 2020

Rusty isn't seeming to be quite himself the last few days. He seems scared or uncomfortable to go out by himself and so I've had to go out with him. It gives me a good reason to go out and get some more fresh air but do hope he's more peaceful soon.

Taking Care of You in Stay at Home Mode

All of us are in 'Stay at Home Mode'.

 Let's face it a lot of you are probably in survival mode more times than you like to admit! No judgement here, I know your all doing your best as i am.

Oh by the way I didn't make the following video just for women. You men need to take care of 'you' too! It's not the slightest bit wimpy to make sure your the best whether a πŸ•Ίman or a πŸ‘©woman! 

Let's face it if we don't take care of ourselves who will!
Have a watch and let's get on this!
Below the video I'll expound a bit more so don't miss the 'more'!
P.S. Be sure to watch the video on Youtube, like the video and subscribe. Part 2 will be coming soon! 
Here's a recap of what I've shared in the video.

Taking care of ourselves especially in 'Stay at Home Mode' due to this virus is good practice for when this virus has finally left us alone!

1. We need to start taking care of ourselves from the inside out.
2. The best way and what I do is drink 2-3 glasses daily of Forever Aloe drinks-plain, Peaches, or Berry.

I personally don't think I have to be tough and gulp down the plain stuff. It's not my fav! But if you don't care then so be it.

3. Forever Aloe drinks are:

-90.7 % pure inner aloe leaf gel

-Rich in Vitamin C

-An Ideal digestive aid

-Aloe is great for your Skin
 -Supports the Immune System

We're all doing a lot of right things.

We're staying in, washing our hands, santizing ourselves and everything else.

As a family we eat together, try to stay entertained, some of us work from home, we take care of the kids, some of us homeschool, and much more.

But are you taking care of you!
I encourage you to do your best for you and one thing I forgot to mention--be sure to get enough sleep. I work late a lot of times and my dogs like to wake me up early. So if they do so, I usually get a nap in to take care of myself.

I have much to share on care of you but let's focus right now on doing so from the inside out.
Your innards will thank you and will reflect outward and in all you do.

Here's your link for Forever Aloe Drinks:
 Stay tuned for the next video and share I have coming up.

E-book That Isn't Laughed at Now

This image above is from an e-book that I created  June of last year. 

I did a Weekly Share of some of what was in the e-book before it was ready.

I assure you this was my first e-book, it wasn't polished or perfect but I decided to go forth and get better in time. The e-book is now going through revision and hope will be done sometime soon. Still won't be perfect or polish but better.

In doing the Weekly Share
I discovered several things, some shocking and some discouraging.
And I'm also grateful for those who definitely knew what I was talking about!

1. Some had no idea what I was talking about  

2. Some laughed because they were prepared enough for any disaster or emergency. After all they could go to the store and plop whatever they bought in the microwave and chow down.

3.People's responses showed me they lived in a microwave mentality. By microwave mentality I mean a complacency about the grocery store shelves would always be well stocked, the power would always be on, etc. and they could go on about life with no worries because nothing was going to change.  

I'm really not making fun of anyone or judging anyone. Many people really just don't have any idea 
1. to be grateful for what we have and 

2. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see in the news that bad things happen in the world around us. Things such as tornados, hurricanes, bomb threats, flooding and the like.  

3. To plan ahead a little ahead should these things or similar befall us.

 Now.... the image at the top of this post looks like a lot of our grocery store shelves today. It's not funny, no one is laughing and people are stressing and/or hoarding whatever they can.

When I created the e-book, I knew disasters and emergencies can happen because I've lived through them and stood in line to get things like a simple bottle of water. So I shared from my experience and passion to educate others and perhaps a wake up call

My passion hasn't wavered, rather it's grown to educate others to go forth and be prepared even if in the midst of a virus as we're in now.

I have decided to go ahead and share the video below that I originally created to introduce 'Gone Before You Get There' but I removed the audio since needs updated as I update the e-book.
Also since I'm updating the e-book to include the times we live in now, I'm offering it for free.


The last screen of the video says the e-book is $19.99.  Ignore that! Since I'm updating the e-book it's yours for free!
Granted it does not include the current situation we are dealing with in regard to the virus directly but at the same time I believe you can put to use some of the information and resources.  
To my knowledge all the links to resources are current and should work with no problem. 

Below is your link to download. Again don't worry you will not be charged. But this will get you plugged into where I host the pdf of the e-book.
Go ahead and Click the 'Add to Cart' button below to get your pdf!


Thanks so much for reading and thanks in advance if you decide to get the pdf of the E-book!
Please feel free to share with those you know who may find this helpful as well.

Please feel free to comment below and I'd definitely appreciate hearing if 'Gone Before You Get There' is helpful!
