Under The Weather

I am writing from my phone again today...fingers crossed that the post works out!

Took some photos earlier this morning of my beautiful rose blooms. I love to grow roses. I am very excited to have found a spot where they are flourishing.

I am under the weather. I look like a bad advertisement for Botox. No wrinkles on the right side of my face, but it looks like it is going to spill out some collagen soon, pop, LOL. To make a long story a bit shorter, what was a terrific headache last week turned into an infected sinus, and now it is working its way down the face. It generally hurts to lay my head down, which makes for poor sleep. But this afternoon I am getting a lovely break. It feels better to rest my head. Ha, ha, ha...I think I will live.

Today I did make a batch of patchouli blend soap. I have always been a patchouli fan. Patchouli is one of those fragrances that people either truly love, or hate with much disgust. Patchouli essential oil was too expensive to buy for a while, and some suppliers quit selling it for a while. I am glad it is back! FYI...we might experience a similar issue with peppermint essential oil soon due to a bad crop overall.

Anyhow...that is the latest. Oh...I wanted to add, I hardly ever get sick. But I am allowing antibiotics this time. A person needs to be well (to breathe, chew, and smile).

Going to hit send now...wish me luck!

Hope you feel better soon. I hate patchouli.

I hope I feel better soon too. It is a drag! I have slept a lot these past few days.

Yep, that is patchouli for you. A love or hate essential oil.

Sorry to hear you are under the weather this time of year. I hope it all goes away soon!
I've never heard of patchouli, so I don't know whether I like it or not. I'll have to find some, somewhere.

OUCH! I get a much lesser version of this off and on, usually just swells up around my eyes and I look like I have been punched or have a horrible hang over, and it hurts too.

Do you find the scent of some of your essential oils helps you feel better?

Patchouli, I cannot inhale the fragrance without it taking be back down memory lane to the 70's!
Oh no, peppermint prices going up? I will begin right now to harvest my own mints, I need lots of peppermint tea.

Ahh, went to a Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Bob Dylan concert on the 4th... one major smell was patchouli! Hadn't smelled it for a few years... it is wonderful! Amazing how a smell can take you back to a place and time.....

Hope you feel better. My hubby has the same condition so I know what you're going through. You did a great job using the phone.

Sorry you've got the crud. That's never fun, but especially when you still have work to do.

Your roses are beautiful - I love the purpley one.

Feel better soon my friend.

The roses are beautiful! I am so sorry to hear you have been sick though. Sinus infections are the worst!
