Train Ride Through the Adirondacks

We took a trip to Saranac Lake, NY to take a train ride through the Adirondacks. It took 2 hours to get to Saranac Lake and 45 minutes on the train to get to Lake Placid for a short 45 minute rest and then headed back. There was a mock train robbery that day. The trip was not what me or Mike expected. It really wasn't in the woods. Just passing through the towns. The train robbery really wasn't that great either. But it was nice to get out and do something. And the scenery is beautiful! Plus, we took the trip with Mike's oldest son and his family so that made it nice also.







When we got back to our house the girls joined us with their kids and we visited for a while and took pictures.

Expansion

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.

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.

Peppermint

I didn't think that I would be using the peppermint essential oil that I received in my introductory packet much; but, I was wrong. I have had many occasions to use it with success.

My son now reaches for it when he has a headache instead of a non-aspirin product. He loves the smell and says that it works. My daughter said it instantly makes your headache feel better.

I have used it to open my airways up when I had a cold. Last night my 3 year old granddaughter spent the night with us and all she did was cough. I put a drop on the bottom of each foot and her chest. I swear she didn't cough for 2 hours and could breath better. She went right to sleep also.

Peppermint is also good for nausea. I haven't had to use it for that yet. Here is a link for 33 different ways to use peppermint essential oils. (Please, if you are going to use it for cooking and food; use only doTerra because you are assured certified pure therapeutic grade [CPTG]).
