Some days it is difficult to be positive, and you may think that this pandemic will not be over, ever.  You are out running errands, and you get out of your vehicle, and are walking towards the store, and then, oh shoot, I forgot my mask!, and you return to your car to get your mask on. Cases are on the rise everywhere, and the thought of a second lockdown looms. What can you do?

You can get ready for Christmas, which will be here before you know it. It's time to pull out all your winter decor, and start decorating. We have had warmer than normal temperatures lately, it has felt like Fall, or summer. How has the weather been where you live?  This tree was photographed at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. 

silly goats peppermint hand lotion

Christmas brings along the Gifting dilemmas - what to buy for those on your Christmas list. One of our favourites is Silly Goats moisturizing lotion, in Peppermint Eucalyptus. I find the lotion has a nice pepperminty fragrance with the undertones of menthol from the eucalyptus. Silly Goat milk lotions include sweet almond oil, avocado oil, shea butter and goat milk.
