Free Yourself

There is chaos and disorder everywhere, and you can't control it. Crazy, unorganized, and unexpected things are happening, and they all seem to be happening at the same time. Does this sound like pandemonium to you? That's okay, today is Pandemonium Day. It's a day to embrace and even celebrate the pandemonium that often seems to surround us. It is a day for looking at this pandemonium in a new way. As it can come along at any time, it is a day to accept that it exists.All hail the forces of chaos! Let the desk be unorganized, turn off the alarms and let the laundry go unwashed! Throw out your itinerary and pursue the day with wild abandon! Have a course of action? Disrupt it. Walking along the pier and have a sudden desire to jump in the water? Do it! Randomly decide that purple and neon green are perfectly complimentary colors? Wear them! Pandemonium day is dedicated to the unexpected, if you live a typically organized and well-ordered life, celebrate some serious Pandem…

Simple Living

Image
Henry David Thoreau, says: "Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself." Though I don't agree that Nature is innocent, she has a wicked temper when we damage what she has made, I do believe in living simply.

Living simply means different things to different people for me it means living with less stuff, eating plain foods and spending money on things I need, (most of the time anyway), not want. Right now I am in the middle of a purge.

I have accumulated a lot of stuff related to paper crafts but my interest has moved past it to more solid mediums like cloth and clay (air-dry not the other stuff). So I am packing it up into garbage bags and getting it out of the house. Yeah, I feel a little guilty about that but honestly, I need it gone and that is the easiest way to do it. Some stuff I send on to charity bins but a lot of it is of no interest to them.

That is why I had a yard sale at the end …

Essential Oils

I have known about Essential Oils and what they can be used for since I was in my late twenties but have not studied them seriously. A friend here in the building started using the Young Living brand a couple of years ago and she swears by them.

I want to try but like most ideas, my progress will likely be Hit and Miss. For today I am looking at some natural remedies that I want to try out when I find the set I bought a couple of months ago. I'm thinking they are in one of the garbage bags under the printer table.

Oh yeah, not garbage, they contain books from the bookshelf and other odds and ends that were cluttering up my desk space. I needed to clear the bookshelf for the garage sale and haven't returned the books to it yet.

So today is a bad pain day my back is on fire and so are my arms. I entered a google enquiry for Oils that help with nerve pain and I found a place called Essential Oil Sanctuary The article I found recommended 12 essential oils for use with the pain.

Some Poetry

Edmund Clerihew Bentley, commonly known as E.C. Bentley, was born on today's date in 1875. He was a British writer known for clerihews: four-line biographical poems of a comedic nature and an AABB rhyme scheme. The subject of the poem is usually named in the first line, and other characteristics of the poem are its clumsy rhythm and irregular number of accents.

Tried to grow roses
To please peoples noses
Now they sing in heavens chorus


Clerihews by Edmund Clerihew Bentley Sir Humphrey Davy
Detested gravy.
He lived in the odium
Of having discovered sodium. *** Sir Humphrey Davy
Abominated gravy.
He lived in the odium
Of having discovered sodium.

Style part 2

I talked about finding your style but finding your style is only the first part. Once you find your style then you actually have to find a wardrobe.

It is often the case that our closets are full of  "stuff". Things we would not wear or don't fit our style. So what do we do?

My style does not lend itself to pants but if yours does then you will find the following a little help.

The absolute least number of clothes you can have two tops & two pairs of pants but it isn't encouraged because it means that you will need to do a small wash every day and if you pay for the machines as I go that can get really expensive.

The recommended wardrobe varies a little depending on rather you need only a casual ie everyday wardrobe or both a casual & a work wardrobe. Those with uniforms are super lucky that way because all you need is three uniforms. People who work in an office need a few more things. What depends on the formality of your job and the company you work for. …
