While we were away this weekend, I saw a great “recipe” for a simply DIY fragrance diffuser and I thought it was worth trying and sharing. Simply pour a thin oil like almond oil into a small bottle with a very narrow neck. I used an empty old diffuser bottle that still had the reeds in it. Add a few shakes of your favorite essential oil (I used lavender) and mix well with a reed before adding all the sticks back in. Once they are saturated, flip them over and flip weekly to keep the aroma fresh. You can purchase reeds in a craft store, but you can also use bamboo skewers or even chopsticks in a pinch. Cute idea as you turn your home from winter to spring!
Thanks to Jeff for the DIY mosquito control garden idea! I will be building one, and also sharing that on here sometime this week. Looks pretty and if it will keep those darn mosquitos off us while sitting on the patio, that would be great!
It was wonderful to see Kyle, Nicole, LeeAnn and Gary and the beach was beautiful. Derek and Jolene, sorry we missed your calls (on every phone!). Hope you had a great weekend celebrating JoAnn’s birthday! Let’s catch up today!!!
Regular schedule this morning, so it’s time to get ready for the gym. I have had one quote stuck in my mind since I posted it last week because I LOVE IT. It is so simple, yet so huge and is certainly worth repeating. I am going to make it my mantra!
“Choose to be optimistic. It feels better.”
Make it a great day…Namaste
