This week was brutal in southern Michigan. The weather fluctuated from the mid 40’s to the teens three days last week. The weekend was a gusher, 3.5 inches of rain and ice and snow at night. The drive way is slick and washed out in places, with logs and branches frozen in our tracks. Terrie and I took care of the horses, tackled the driveway and cleared the culverts so the water would pick up its pace drying out the ground. We started clearing out the debris and hoping for the thaw today to fill in the deep trenches.
The horses enjoyed all the negative ions all night long from the rain and thaw to the ice and snow, in one night. Their spirit was light, eyes wide open and head held high. They were happy to interact with me. Harmony laid her face on mine and we shared or breath, their way of showing affection, we were face staring into my eyes. I said to her, “You good? I’m good.” She lifted up her head, nodded yes and walked away. I may not have experienced the same fresh air over night, filled with uplifting negative ions from nature, but I enjoyed sharing their energy and companionship in the morning.
Terrie, Jamie and I did patched the driveway the following day. We scouted rocks and pieces of broken ash vault. We had to pry them loose from the ice. We used sand and tile grout mix, the gray powder. Terrie had a reserve in case of emergency. Thank you, Terrie, for thinking ahead. It’s patched well enough to drive over. It was a laborious cold morning.
By the time we finished the driveway I was ready for the warm house and recliner. When I went inside it was time to rest. First things first, hot Chai Tea and lunch, then a shower, and some more rest.
Working with essential oils revives your energy and has healthy virtues. It’s all in a day’s work. I always thought about essential oils as a luxury. Because I value them and realize their holistic benefits. Today, I think about them, as a staple of a holistic lifestyle.
