Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

I have a brand new favorite series that I never want to end! It stars Keri Russell of Felicity fame, and it’s wonderful.  The Diplomat premiered on Netflix on April 20th.  The writing is excellent, and the plot balances humor and suspense beautifully.  The basic premise is that the very new U.S. ambassador to the U.K. must defuse an international crisis while she is also getting settled into her new job and managing a very challenging relationship with her husband, also a career diplomat. It is rated for Mature Audiences and the F*** word is liberally used.  It is SO good that is has already been renewed for a second season.

On Netflix.

Watch the trailer.My daughter has introduced me to an invigorating product for my morning shower.  It’s pure aromatic Eucalyptus oil.  I sprinkle some around my shower and breathe in that wonderful scent.  I get it at Whole Foods.  The brand is 365, it is 100% Eucalyptus Essential Oil.  A 2 fl. Oz bottle is $9.99.



For the end of the day, I have been enjoying relaxing in a lavender Epsom salts bath before bed.  I use Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salts Soothe & Sleep Lavender. Epsom salts soothe muscle aches or soreness, and lavender relaxes the body, reduces stress, and can improve sleep. $5.87 for a 3 LB bag
