Fir & Lavender Diffuser, Lovely

My essential oil diffuser is a success, I'd have to say! The gorgeous scent of fir trees and lavender mingle and spread out into my home. So sweet and relaxing! This one should last until the holidays! Makes me feel like I'm outdoors all the time! Scent in love...

Wildflower Bunches

Here's a photo bunch to brighten your day.

Summer is winding down and the chill of Autumn's morning has sauntered into the dawn of the sun rising.

Crossing the rundown parking lot to my condo, there's a patch where wildflowers grow. Collecting these brought back memories of an open field where I used to live beside. There I would chance upon rare findings of wild strawberries and raspberries, I so delighted when I actually found one! Succulent sweet morsels had you pining for more.

The summers of childhood have passed. I must make an effort next summer to go berry picking.

This past weekend had me pulling the tender leaves of thyme off their sprigs to combine into a quinoa mushroom risotto recipe from the LCBO Food & Drink magazine. I made two versions, the original recipe and one where I substituted all mushrooms for a can of mushroom soup. Both were tasty!
