Good Sunday Morning, everyone….28 days until Christmas, and today is Sunday Mornings at Home.
This time of year goes way too fast for me…I want to sit down into each moment and spend time with it…from the arrival of Santa on the Macy’s parade to Christmas day when we will celebrate with family.
Speaking of the parade, the Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus were amazing this year…well done… however, they just disappear off the screen too soon!
This year our Christmas celebrations (I hope) will be even richer since we were not able to be together on Thanksgiving. Mr. B and I elected to stay home not being 100% recovered just yet.
I am learning not to count on my planning, but rather to hang onto the hope of a big family celebration to come.
I assure you that we are on the mend…not fully recovered…but little steps of progress each day and your prayers and comments have meant the world to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to write them.
For those encouraging me to take time off from blogging, please know that blogging feeds my joy and actually keeps me healthy.
Also, it is a source of income for us, and there is no one to do it, when I am down…so while I can do this, I will do it. But know, it is work I really enjoy and would be sad without.
Now, get your own cup of joy and let’s look over what I am thinking about for Sunday Mornings at Home.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: RECOVERY TIME
For Sunday Mornings at Home, I wanted to share with you some of the steps in our recovery and return to good health.
My daughter-in-law sent over homemade elderberry syrup featuring a touch of local honey. I much prefer her way than more supplements. We liked it.
She uses the Organic Elderberry Herbal Blend for Making Syrup.
During this time, we have not experienced much sun (unusual for South Texas this time of year), but on the days we had sun, I made sure I was out in it.
Mr. B’s doctor said 5-10 minutes a day will make a world of difference…so I have grabbed it when available.
The area I must step up this week I is exercise. Mr. B is back on his Peleton and I must get back to moving. All other areas are good.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: RECOVERY MEANS SELF CARE
I feel so much better on the days that I stick to my self care…even if staying at home.
If I shower, practice my skincare, and put on makeup, it is amazing how much better I will feel for the day.
Recently, one of the readers asked that I explain the Chamonix products I use daily…so here is what I have done for years now….
First of all, all individual Chamonix products are 35% off right now, with a few special packages available.
- After I cleanse my face in the morning and use a white washcloth on it, then I immediately follow with Genucel Deep Firming Serum…I would not want to be without it…and I pat it into my face and neck.
- Then I pat on my eyelids the Genucel Eyelid Treatment, and underneath the Genucel with Eyeseryl Technology for bags and puffiness.
- Next I pat into my neck and under my chin with the Genucel Jawline Treatment with MDL Technology….
- Finally, I pat all around my face the Genucel XV…My skin responds to this so well….nothing else softens the wrinkles and gives the glow that these products do.
- After removing make up and cleansing at night, I use the Genucel XV, the Jawline Treatment, and the Genucel Dark Circle Treatment.
Genucel products are plant based, all natural, and full of antioxidants. This line is my favorite.
Even just taking care of my complexion with no makeup helps me to feel better each day.
Also, while I was in recovery, Leigh Ann showed up at the door with this fabulous lotion…not only is it wonderful lotion…but the name was meant for me!!
Of course, that made me feel better on the spot.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: HOME PROJECTS
Part of my recovery had to include getting my house in order and ready for Christmas decorations.
While I looked at my front room full of junk for months, I decided I wanted to style it differently and go for a cozy reading room.
The challenge was to use all furniture we currently owned and not purchase new pieces at this time.
Once again, thanks goes to Rugs Direct for pulling this project together.
This rug is the Margot Feat Cloudpile in Antique Sage…and it is so, so soft to walk on or even lay on. Love this rug…and the colors were perfect to work with everything I have going on here.
Yes, Rugs Direct does have a big sale in progress like everyone else, and I continue to wait for special affiliate links..but I do highly recommend their rugs.
I still love the one we put in the new bath.
Those are the updates for Sunday Mornings at Home! Please share anything on your heart this day or ask any questions….then make sure that this week you….
AND KEEP SMILING!!
