EAST 🔷 WEST: 1-3. the sunrise was so pretty this morning,👏🏻 and then... 4-5. at 6:43am,🕰 the bright sunrise light illuminated what’s left of the leaves of on the hills, to the west. It lasted only a couple of minutes. ⏳ By 6:45, the trees were a dull rust color again. I love those sunrise moments. I consider them a gift of God, and a reminder that “His mercies are NEW every morning”📖☺️. mrsbrimblesoctda day30 “CHANGING”

ESSENTIALOILS 💦PRODUCT REVIEW: I ordered one of these waterless diffusers, specifically for use in the car or at the computer 💻, for an enclosed small area. I’m very disappointed.😔 it doesn’t work at all! The idea💡 is that a small amount of energy runs through the zip drive, warming the drops of essentialoil, and causing them to diffuse in the surrounding area. It DID get warm, but NO aroma. That said, it IS only a generic name brand. •❓❓Any essential oilers out there want to weigh in? 🤔 Do the name brand models diffuse more effectively? ☺️

mrsbrimblesoctdaily2017 day18: “COZY” photo 3. The day started out sunny/cloudy ⛅️ and pleasant. 1&2. Then suddenly, a deep gray cloud bank moved in and the wind picked up.🌬💨 4. It’s a good day to be COZY inside, with a mug of strawberry/lemon fizzy water kiefer. 🍓🍋🍓 It has easily become my favourite probiotic drink flavour profile. 👌🏻☺️

mrsbrimblesoctdaily2017 day5: “AUTUMN ANIMALS” Our 3 pheasant roosters were feeding their way home, to the spruces in the hedgerow, to roost for the night. At any time of the day, I can hear these guys, crowing to the roosters in the coop run, their song of freedom, from the hedgerows. As you can see, much of the leaf show is on the ground now. 3. The Virginia Creeper is firing up for a bright Autumn show. (photo credit: Billy was the quick hand with the camera 📸 to catch the pheasants before the scooted across the yard and into the bushes.)

mrsbrimblesoctdaily2017 day15: “LEAVES” In fairness, today’s photo is very muted, due to the dark, heavy cloud cover and impending rain, compared to the bright sunny morning on Oct 6th. The winds have brought down a lot of the colour,🍂🍂 and the leaf show is almost over.

mrsbrimblesoctdaily2017 day13: “CURRENTLY READING 📖 “ I recommend both these books 📚; very informational. Today is October’s day to refill my ‘BREATHE’ diffuserblend bottle. I bought 100ml bottles of each ingredient, so I could economize and make a 10ml bottle, myself, each month, since I use it regularly. Because it’s for the diffuser⚗️💭, it is just a straight 1:1:1 ratio, no carrier oil necessary. Ingredients: peppermint, blue gum eucalyptus, and Tunisian rosemary essentialoils .⚱️⚱️⚱️ The Autumn bug 🐞🐞🐞hatch has happened (there are ladybugs galore)... so the chickens 🐓🐓🐓 are delighted to be allowed to free range in the backyard, and eat their fill.

the full HARVEST MOON 2017 🌕. October’s full moon rises just after sunset and sets around sunrise, so this is the only night in the month when that, the moon is visible in the sky all night long. Some Native American tribes called this month’s moon, the ‘Full Hunter’s Moon’, because it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. (Credit for info: the Farmer’s Almanac online; moon photos 🌕📸 by Billy)☺️

Today’s project: metal cased, sinus relief inhaler. With the AUTUMAL season change, colds and sinus infections are going around. I felt one coming on, last week 🤧🤒, however my simple, plastic, essentialoil sinus inhaler put the run to it!👏🏻👏🏻 The active ingredients that fight off cold bacteria, are oregano and tea tree essentialoils. Photos 1,2,3&4. show the simple process and the components of the inhaler: inserts to absorb the oil, metallic cover, cap, and inner bottle to hold the insert and the inhaler top, as well as a bonus pretzel top. 2&3. select oils. drop oils on saucer. Mop them up in the absorbent insert. 4. Set the insert in the tiny bottle and assemble the parts. 5. mrsbrimblesoctdaily2017 Day 3. AUTUMNAL. 🔸a review of INHALERS: the metallic inhaler is a more dignified version for one’s purse, instead of pulling out a little plastic one in public. However, the little plastic one works much more easily! and has better airflow. It’s a win:win! The little plastic one is MUCH less expensive and performs better. 👌🏻☺️ essentialoils

Today’s project 1: DEAD SEA SALTS foot soak w/essential oils. 1. A handful of Dead Sea salts; 2. Fill the remainder of the small jar with Epsom salts; 3. Sprinkle in essential oils. 6drops of lavender/3 drops of peppermint/ 3 drops of rosemary. 4. Mix. Ummm! It smells nice.👍🏻 Photo 4. mrsbrimblesoctdaily2017 day 2: BROWN - my chocolate maple leaf, stencilled on yesterday’s salted caramel latté. In case you’re interested. DEAD SEA SALTS: The use of Dead Sea bath salts at home is an effective way to relax and absorb the minerals of the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea minerals absorb into muscle tissue and provide effective relief from soreness and stiffness. This is due to improved blood circulation which reduces inflammation and serves as a general muscle relaxant. This increase in blood flow eliminates toxins trapped in your muscles, allowing an oxygen-rich blood flow, bringing improved nourishment to your tissues and decreasing discomfort. Potassium and Bromides found in Dead Sea Bath salts are the minerals which help to ease muscular aches and pains. Epsom Salts by comparison contain less than 0.04% potassium and no bromides. The bromide concentration in the Dead Sea is the highest of all waters on Earth. Bromides are known to help relax and ease muscular aches and pains as well as aiding with the natural repair of the body. Potassium improves oxidation and helps regulate the electrical process of muscles and the nervous system, It is also vital in assisting cells to absorb nourishment and expel waste products. essentialoil essentialoils

(poor Tom didn’t like it at all! 🐶) When thunder and lightning finally stopped, the power and internet went out. It has just barely came back on. 🔌💡👍🏻🚰🚽 YAY! How unusual to lose power in September; it’s usually midWinter during a big blizzard. I must say💬, a fair weather outage is a lot easier to deal with. ☺️

Today is kombucha tea day. Every 4-5 days, I pour off the finished probiotic-rich kombucha tea and set a new batch: 3 cups of strong black tea with ... 3-4 tbsps of white sugar. Cover the jar with a breathable top and leave for 4-5 days again. It gets to be quite routine; SO easy, healthy,and very tasty. (my jar is considered a scobey hotel; it has 5 or 6 scobies. A scobey is the probiotic kombucha culture, that grows at the top of each batch. Some people throw the extras out. I won’t do that. I’d prefer to give them away as kombucha starters.)

Our GARDEN WALK was cut short, when Tom took off in hot pursuit of some sort of wildlife around the pond. Maybe just a pheasant, however I just wasn’t up for a confrontation of any sort, so I came indoors. Tom eventually straggled in. ❣️🐶❣️☺️ I love the “wild sunflowers”, that only bloom during the month of September. My fushia Gerber daisy has a second bloom👏🏻. I find gerbers bloom until the snow flies here ... a bright POP of colour.
