Joyful Life

Joyful Foo-Foo

I thought it would be a good idea to close out August here on the blog with a post about the more foo-foo things in life. FYI – this post is not sponsored by any person, place, thing or event.

Sleep usually comes very easy for me but since my new quitting time is late at night – sleep don’t come easy.

Now the worknight is done, I thought I would sit on the deck and photograph some things I am using in an attempt to help relax me and / or lull me to sleep.

From left to right:

  • Avon Senses Body Care Enchanted Merveille Black Cherry & Nutmeg Body Spray – Christmas gift I found in my closet.
  • Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Lotion Overnight Deep Moisturizing – Light lavender scent and amazingly softens the driest skin.
  • In The Stars Fine Fragrance Mist – Bath and Body Works – Light woodsy, musky but yet airy smell.
  • The Book of Psalms (New International Version) – This gets used during the day as well as night. It is bigger print and easier to carry in your purse. I will not lie – I bought this version just because of the cover. Who can resist pink flowers and orange, blue, white and black hummingbird.
  • Celestial Seasonings Herbal Tea – Chamomile – Delicious on it’s own or paired with their Black Cherry Tea.
  • Tea Forte Kati Cup Cherry Blossoms, Ceramic Tea Infuser Cup with Infuser Basket and Lid for Steeping Loose Leaf Tea – I do not have loose leaf tea but putting a tea bag in the infuser cup, pouring hot water over it, and letting it sit makes delicious tea and since I love cherries – I could not pass this mug up.
  • Celestial Seasonings Herbal Tea – Honey Vanilla Chamomile – Absolutely delicious -contains lemongrass, roasted chicory, licorice, orange peel and natural honey flavor.

So as August draws to a close and we turn the page and head on into September, may God bless you with the ability to relax, unwind and quickly fall asleep.

In peace I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
