How it started vs how it’s going. We have a new puppy… well puppy-ish. She’s probably about a year old now. She’s here for the afternoon to play in the pool and chase the 🐿 and 🦅. this pretty much sums up the afternoon. #DaisyDoo #germanshepherd #gsd #cementpond #urbanfarm #sniffspot #tgif

Citrus essential oils frequently demonstrate the ability to promote healthy cholesterol levels in preclinical research. A preclinical study found that oral administration of lemon essential oil improved cholesterol profiles (increased HDL and significantly reduced total cholesterol, triglycerides, and VLDL). As a side benefit, the oil improved total antioxidant activity, which is important because oxidation of LDL cholesterol is a contributing factor to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.

Sniffspot - Rent Safe & Private Spaces for Dogs.

The Urban Farm is officially a destination! It’s a SniffSpot!

If you’ve never heard of SniffSpot, it’s sort of like AirBnB but instead of houses, you’re guests are renting a private bark park. 

Mine of course contains a cement pond so it’s popular with the 4-legged swimmers!

Wann rent my yard?

Bark. Play. Swim. Relax.

It’s hard to see here but I cropped this T-shirt today. Yep, cut the bottom right off. And while I don’t have the swoon-worthy abs of @melissau I do credit her with this idea. I never liked the way T-shirt’s fit: too long, too clingy, by the time I got them loose enough to go over my hips they were dumpy in the shoulders. Guess what... the T-shirt was broken and ill-designed. (Made for men!) So I fixed it.

I love finding little treasures when I’m out walking. Little stones and shells when I’m at the beach. Interesting seeds and leaves during spring or fall seasons. Today I found this sweet marble. Not coincidentally—because there really aren’t any coincidences are there—I was also finishing an audio book called Ordinary Grace by @williamkentkrueger. This book... oh wow this book... touched my heart so deeply. And now I have this literal touchstone that sort of reminds of the cover and of God’s Grace. His awful, ordinary Grace and how lucky we are to have it and how blessed we are to give it. @ Dallas, Texas

What's your go-to jam? Lately I've been playing some 70's disco every morning to get my mojo going. Its amazing how much better I feel with a few minutes of shaking my groove thing in the kitchen.

Get some pretty odd looks from the Urban Farm Mutts but I think all they really care about is breakfast.

DID YOU LISTEN TO YESTERDAY’S WE CAN DO HARD THINGS PODCAST -- AND IF SO, ARE YOU FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS BY REVIVING YOUR FUN SELF WITH MUSIC???

Music is hard. Since CDs somehow disappeared I have never understood where music lives. In the cloud maybe? I don’t know. So I did a thing for us. I FOUND MUSIC. And then I made us a “G’s FUN PLAYLIST.” My first playlist of my entire life. Allison helped me find where songs live. I am basically Gen Z now -- except that I have been told my playlist is not at all cool. It is possible that every song on my playlist is from twenty years ago. (It’s also possible that that’s the last time I had fun.) I don’t care. My playlist is amazing. I am so proud.

YOUR TURN!!
Let’s make a POD SQUAD FUN PLAYLIST!
TELL ME YOUR FAVORITE FUN SONGS.

What are the songs you crank up in the car and make you remember a different time (a different you?). What are the songs that take you out of the ticker in your head and put you back in your body and the moment? What songs make you dance and sing out loud? Please tell me. I want to make us a huge list and I want us all to have it so we can be FUNNER WITHOUT HAVING TO ADD ANY FUN ACTIVITIES to our to-do lists. We just wanna push a button and have the cloud show up and help us, thank you very much.

Go to https://linktr.ee/glennondoyle to find my “G’s Fun Playlist!”
And please leave your favorite songs in the comments below, so we can keep building our list.

Let us reawaken our fun ourselves and remember our joy and humanity. One song at a time. Love you.

Love,
Fun G

I want ALL the tree EOs these days. Battling vertigo leaves me wanting as much grounding as I can get. So I cannot wait for this blend to show up. Here are a few of it's ingredients and their emotion benefits.

Siberian Fir - Coniferous trees in general – Fir, Pine, Spruce – are the guardian trees of our planet with their specific purifying, cleansing constituents

Cypress - Cypress essential oil can be used as a sedative, which can be helpful when you need to relax. If you’re dealing with some heavy stress diffusing cypress oil is the way to go.

Juniper Berry - It's said to have an encouraging and supportive affect on the emotional and spiritual aspects of a person, particularly helping a person navigate fears and resistance to the type of digging deep necessary for healing.

Black Spruce - Long used by the Lakota Indians it has a calming and relaxing effect. It may also help balance your hormonal system.

Pimento Leaf & Pimento Fruit- Pimento is a big evergreen tree native to the Caribbean Islands and South America, Pimento is better known as allspice in some countries. It has many detox and other health benefits.

Cistus - can be very beneficial when used during meditation or prayer.

Bug be gone!!

Ready to grow the best all natural garden ever? How good is your green thumb?

No one wants to play in the dirt while being exposed to toxic chemicals. Playing in the garden just got healthier. If you’re starting your garden for the summer, try these essential oils to repel bugs. Regular insecticides contain harmful toxins that permeate the air and soil (and your beautiful plants). How are you going all-natural with essential oils with summer?

My Story

About 10 years ago I heard about this way of eating called Paleo. It essentially eliminated all grains and sugars -- an ALL processed food. My body thrived!

Then life happened.

A corporate job overtook my time and energy. I spent more time in airplanes than in my own kitchen.

Since then I’ve steadily worked to reclaim my health while maintaining a balance of the foods and wines that I love. Essential oils are a foundation of my self care.

Products

When you choose dōTERRA®, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.

To capture sameness and establish predictability, producers rely on synthetic pesticides, chemical additives and sugar, which yield a product that tastes the same, bottle after bottle, year after year. Chemical pesticides and additives also make it possible to maximize yields and hide flaws, like bacteria and other unpleasant elements. Scout and Cellar is here to offer a chemical, additive-free wine, which provides more natural, altogether better-tasting wine experience to everyone.
