It’s already almost November. . . can you believe it?!
We had a great month in our little part of the universe. We were blessed to hang with great friends, and even got opportunities to meet new friends, which is always a blast.
We celebrated a beloved son’s birthday. <3 How is it possible to love and adore these little ones so much?! God, thank You so. much. for Your blessings!!!
We were even able to trek to the nearby orchard for a bushel of apples. Oh, the joy of plucking an apple fresh from the tree and devouring it! I’ve never tasted anything so fresh. They don’t come any crisper or juicier than straight off the branch. It was truly good for the soul. I loved how the aroma of apple cider vinegar wafted throughout the orchard – a sweet and sour reminder of life’s cycles and God’s beautiful order.
Since I enjoy reminiscing a little, here are a few links I have enjoyed from this month.
Do you still find you or your family suffering from cavities on a healthy diet? Thankfully we aren’t dealing with cavities, but we are trying to build up our teeth over here. Nourishing Time gives us ten steps to healthier teeth, through diet. You might want to bookmark or pin this one.
Dealing with ear infections? Try making homemade garlic oil.
Coughing got your or your family down? Consider this natural cough remedy.
This one was a big one for me this month. Are you familiar with magnesium deficiency symptoms? I’ve been dealing with almost everything on her list and finally bought some of this magnesium/calcium powder. I am sleeping like a baby and the tension in my neck has lessened by about 50%. I didn’t even realize it, but my premenstrual cramps were nonexistent this month! Hallelujah! Take a look.
Earlier this month I was amazed by the whole process of making bone broth. I bought some soup bones for $4 at our local health food store. I used this single set of bones to make four batches of bone broth, each batch equaling about 3 quarts. So that was $1.25 a GALLON for bone broth. Sure beats paying $4/quart for a much less healthy box of organic broth! I love bone broth, it’s one of the last few frugal healthy things. Anywho, Kimi over at the Nourishing Gourmet wrote a great article about how to make nourishing chicken broth for practically free. She’s right, it’s practically free. Hop on over and see.
These roasted grapes look divine. Have you ever even heard of such a thing?! Yum.
You *might* see two of my recipes in this awesome list of 38 No-Bake Treats & Desserts. Baking is fun, but not baking? More fun.
Speaking of baking, you wanna know the key to an amazing pie crust?? You might squeal when you find out.
Children & Family
I found this post about making your own all-natural diaper rash and topical yeast infection cream. It looks like a good fit and I hope to try and make some. What say you? Looks easy enough.
What I bought this month
Books I’ve enjoyed this month
Choose Yourself by James Altucher. I love the unconventional way this guy writes and he makes some wonderful points for those dreaming of becoming entrepreneurs, publishers, and more. It’s a book I never would have read but a well-written review convinced me and I’m loving it.
Dream Culture by Andy & Janine Mason. Foreward by Danny Silk. How would you like to partner with God to see the dreams He planted in you succeed? Doesn’t that stir something deep within you? Loving this book so far.
What did you love this month??
I’d love to know. I love trading ideas and just so you know – this is not a platform setup but more of a roundtable discussion. That means you: let me know what you have to add!
Here’s to a great November!
