Staying Up Late

I was on the verge of getting ready to go to bed last night when I saw a post about an essential oils session. A man had invited me for a man’s perspective on essential oils but I’m not a man. I don’t need a man’s perspective. This one was by a woman so, since I’ve been using some of the oils for almost two weeks now, I signed up and got in about 11 minutes late.

The woman was talking a mile a minute but there were slides and the oils she was referring to were the ones I have plus some others. What she was saying made sense and I do believe the oils have helped me. Of course, it was all in the name of sales but it’s mighty tempting, too. I’ll have to take it up with my friend from church and see what she thinks.

At any rate, I was more than an hour later getting to bed than I’d planned. I slept reasonably well for these nights. I wish I had those “I slept like a log” nights again but I don’t see that happening.

This morning, I did a bit of vacuuming and didn’t cough up a lung after I got through. I made it a point to do it before I’d eaten. Maybe that’s the secret—take care of anything bordering on the strenuous without anything in the old stomach except water. Water didn’t bother me.

One of the presents for my family came today. Two presents came for me. One is from my sister so I know what it is.

Theo Chocolate Factory

The other is from Theo Chocolate so I know it has to be Theo Chocolate. DD had said she’d ordered something to be sent to me. I emailed her and asked if I should open it now or wait and I haven’t heard anything.

Did I ever mention I toured the factory with DD and merm? It was so neat and, after sampling cacao nibs and chocolate in the factory, we were able to munch our way through the store. I can’t wait to see what kind of chocolate is in the box! I already have 70% dark and 70% dark with salted almonds so I hope it’s something else. My very favorite is congo vanilla nib but the cheapest I can find it online is $5 a bar plus shipping.

I knocked out another set of lessons this afternoon and took the compost out to the bin. The dishwasher wasn’t quite full (there was room for another glass or two) but I ran it, anyway. The bulletin came so I updated my template and posted it online The sun came out now and then, kind of flirty-like. I wish it would come out and stay.

It’s my goal to get to bed earlier tonight. I still have a few things to take care of but I’ll get ‘er done. May sleep be restful and deep.

    Encouraging that you could vacuum without coughing! Hope the oils really are making a difference.

      I hope they are, too. I’ve read that the vapors from some can be harmful to the lungs but maybe they were adulterated with something else.
