I had a few days this past week where I had more pain than normal. The RSD just seems to be worse some days. But it seems to have calmed back down today and I am so thankful. Just in time to catch my hubby's cold. (Thanks hubby) This is the first time in three years I have had a cold.
I used some of my Young Living essential oils to make cold capsules and I have been taking them twice a day. I am on day 3 of the cold and it is getting better.
A few months ago I was taking many prescription meds. Depression medicine, nerve medicine, sleeping medicine and of course narcotics. My pills nowadays look a bit different! They are all natural supplements.
This week I also used my essential oils to make lip balms. SO easy to make!
Some of my pain may have been my own fault. I wanted to do something special for the new home owners moving into my father-in-law's home. We finally closed on his house this week. It took three months but it is done!
I put together a Yankee Candle autumn basket and made these cupcakes to match. They were caramel apple with fondant pumpkins. I love working with butter cream fondant. I have missed decorating.
We had some gorgeous weather this week. It was in the high 70's which is very unusual for the beginning of October. That changed this weekend but I really enjoyed it while it lasted.
The leaves have started to change. Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Our neighbors were getting rid of a few things including this wagon and light. I made the hubby stop and pick them up. I snapped a photo of each and already the wagon has sold for $15.
We spent yesterday organizing the basement. Well, I mostly sat and the hubby organized. But I am quite good at giving directions. We are officially done with the basement. It has taken about three months but every part of it is organized, labeled and alphabetized.
And a few ebay sales! I listed just a few items this week.
1. Dragon software, version 13. I purchased this on QVC. QVC was selling two of the same software for $80. I only needed one copy and so I sold the second. It brought $65 which means I paid about $15 for my copy!
2. It Cosmetics foundation brush. I purchased It Cosmetics foundation on QVC for $40 and the purchase included this brush. I already had a foundation brush and didn't need this one. It sold for $23.50. I love selling items like this since it brings the cost of my foundation down.
