I Miss My Daddy

My daddy, Eulon Adron Page
This is just a little short and, very personal blog this morning.
Maybe there's a purpose in this blog.
Maybe it will help someone mend a relationship before any more time has been wasted.
My mind has been on my daddy the last few days, and how much I loved him.
And the regrets.
Those wasted moments, days and, yes, even years.

Five Favorite Diffuser Blends for those Dog Days of Summer

Are you ready for Fall? I am...temperatures in our forecast are supposed to be up around 110 by the weekend.


The countdown to Autumn has begun!

It's that time of year that I rarely go outdoors. I just sort of hunker down inside and count the days until Fall.

A good diffuser blend helps the mood a bit, it's easy to imagine the crisp smells of Autumn, pumpkins and gold and purple mums on the porch, etc. I've even found myself wishing for snow already.

Here are five of my favorite diffuser blends to help me deal with those "dog days" of Summer.

You'll probably notice that each of these blends contains White Fir, I suppose it speaks to me more than any other Essential Oil for the diffuser. It just takes me to a happy place!

Two DIY Household Cleaners with Essential Oils

It's been several years now since I've bought any kind of household cleaners, laundry detergent, etc.

It's a good feeling to know that you're not only making your home safer for your family, but saving $$$ in the process.

Today I'm sharing two incredibly efficient and super easy to make household cleaners with the extra cleaning and disinfecting strengths of essential oils.

Both cleaning sprays are basically the same, but with different Essential Oils added.

Deborah's Door/Women in Ministry

Deborah's Door

You probably already know this, but I am a woman.

I've reminded GOD of that fact often and HE always assures me that HE already knew that.

I often think of a woman's ministry as a sort of Deborah's Door. Let me explain what I mean.

It's not always easy for women in ministry. I am very blessed to have a pastor who encourages women to be used of GOD in whatever ministry HE calls them to.

There will always be those who think a woman is not allowed to have a voice for GOD or if she does, it is very limited and governed by strict rules. Whenever I encounter this attitude, I'm always reminded of Deborah in the book of Judges.

Saline & Essential Oil Nasal Spray

Stuffy sinuses? Nagging sinus headache? It's that time of year for me and millions of others I'm sure.

I never leave home without it!

I keep a bottle of this in my purse and I use it often. 

Summertime colds and sinus problems are sometimes worse than the wintertime ones for me, I suppose because the house is shut up and there's more junk being pushed through the a/c vents.

It's helpful to mix this in a glass measuring cup and then add to the spritz bottle.

Oils and bottle can be purchased here:

Spark Naturals, quality, reasonably priced products always!

Don't forget the 10% discount you get when you use coupon code PATTI at checkout. This discount applies to everything, even already discounted items.

Blessing from Patti's Place to your place!

Fabulous One(or two) Ingredient Ice Cream

I'm updating and reposting this blog from two years ago. It is summertime and everyone is busy making homemade ice cream and it's so good and so hard to resist.

Here's a healthy alternative that is quick, easy and so much healthier for us.

Banana or Banana Strawberry Ice Cream

*Original blog here....

If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes and done it myself in my kitchen, I probably wouldn't have believed it. I had heard about one ingredient ice cream made with nothing more than a few frozen bananas, but I confess I had my doubts, so I decided to put it to the test....

I also had another ingredient I wanted to add....

Summertime Toes~Nail Fungus Help with Essential Oils

Flip Flop and sandal season has arrived and it's a busy time at the nail salons.

Living life in flip flops sounds lovely, but it's anything but lovely when you fight toenail fungus.

Nobody wants ugly toenails and nail fungus is not a pretty sight.

I know, it's something I fight with my big toenails when I paint them.

The podiatrist's nurse told me that many people get toenail fungus after painting their toenails. I never had a problem until I made the mistake of wearing hiking boots that were just a tiny bit too small.

A few years back, I lost both nails from my big toes. This was after I wore those hiking boots that were about a half size too small. Coming down a steep mountain trail for two miles, every step I took, my big toenails hit against the end of my boots. I had no idea the damage that was being done at the time.

It wasn't long until the nails from my big toes simply fell off. The constant pushing against the cuticle had simply torn them loose. Since that time, I've had a problem. This year, I'm armed and ready with a solution!

Flip Flops aren't the only footwear that show off our toenails however. The most formal attire can include sandals.
