Crazy Noisy Day

So, I thought today was going to be a quite day at home and no work. But, while checking Facebook, I learned that my two daughters were planning on coming to my house with their kids in tow. Hmmm. I don't recall anyone asking me about this. Well, anyway they weren't here yet, so I went about my business and housework chores and made my homemade cleaning products. Then, me and hubby went off to the nursery to buy a few plants for the garden. Yes, I know we are late; but, whatever! We can't live by the rules of society or mother nature.

So, we got some tomatoes, green peppers, cabbage (why hubby picked this, I don't know. I don't make cabbage), cucumbers, and strawberries. Also, I got a few herbs: chives, parsley, thyme, rosemary, and lavender. I had to get some herbs in seed form as they didn't have them already started. But, I plan on planting my herbs in window boxes and bring them inside when the season ends and re potting them. Now, all I want is lettuce and some marigolds. I plan on planting a bunch of marigolds and drying them out and making my own salve. Yes, I know I'm strange.

So, after all this the rest of the family came including my mother and chaos ensued. And all my housekeeping efforts were for nothing. I made a simple supper for all to enjoy and then they all left. And then I quietly, cleaned again. And now, I'm relaxing with wine. A new thing with me starting today.

But, anyway, the kids are exhausting. But, I still enjoy them calling out to me, "Grandma, Grandma, look at me!" And fighting over my lap and attention.

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.

That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
