First I put in one drop of Red Shot. (The “Red Shot” essential oil blend was formulated by D. Gary Young as his “shot” of choice. Red Shot is a limited time only blend of Tangerine, Mandarin, Lime and Grapefruit, Cassia and Spearmint essential oils.) These were special promotions given to us with designated cyber Monday purchases.
NingXia Red wolfberry juice incorporates the benefits of Goji berry, yuzu juice, aronia berry and therapeutic essential oils into a powerful antioxidant and nutritionally balanced drink.
The recommendation is to drink 1 or 2 two-ounce portions a day. Preparing for 3 weeks of travel, I have chosen to boost my immunity and drink 2 per day.
Cheers! To a journey of increased health!
I wish that this cell phone camera would have picked up the millions of sparkles across the hayfield! The dogs took me for a morning walk when they got up this morning. The frost was just starting to melt under the clear skies and bright sunshine.
As I get closer I can see the intricacies of ice droplets and frost glittering off the dried grasses in the field.
I tried hard to capture the sparkle. The frost is visible but the camera just doesn't want to capture the reflection of the sun which is shining through each section of frost.
Jack Frost was here leaving his sparkles behind.

I arrived home to this beautiful gold package.
Tucked inside was a card with my name handwritten on the outside. I was just mentioning that it is so rare to get real mail and I received a real surprise package.
It was a congratulations gift for hitting STAR. i started in September and hit STAR by the end of October. As of today, I've shared this exciting opportunity successfully with 2 people.
The packet contained wonderful business building materials. Yes! Helping with my goal to reach Executive by January!

The decorations are beginning to go up all over the place. Friday there were several women at the Monroe Louisiana airport decorating trees.
I think someone stole cotton from the fields this fall. Ironically it looks like beautiful garland on the tree.
The other tree which was completed was totally red, white and blue. Yes it was symbolic of American pride.
They are also having a contest for the food shelf. You "vote" by putting your donation in the winning trees box. The box with the most donations win!
I look forward to seeing the other entries.

I tried to be good. I ordered a salad. But I could not resist their rolls.
I had crab legs, rice pilaf, and sweet potatoes.
After supper, I went shopping. I ended up at a craft store. There must be a large art contest because I saw 6 four foot square canvases being sold. Those will be some serious paintings.
Me ... I'm taking motivational steps. I wanted to purchase an address book
Inspirations are important so are goals.
My thought for this month:
There is something about handwriting hopes, dreams and goals.

Monday when I flew into Monroe, I was waiting for my luggage. I decided to walk through the flight museum.
They boast being the birth place of Delta which started as a crop dusting company. (That might explain the landing on the way in.)
There is the section dedicated to the history od Delta airlines.
Then there is a military section.
I love the way this small airport is so proud of it's history.

2 sticks butter
1 cup light Karo syrup
2 1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 to 3 cap fulls Vanilla
Begin melting the butter on low heat. Add Karo syrup, then brown sugar and heavy whipping cream. Turn the heat up just past medium until it starts to boil.
Prepare your pan. Turn 8x8 cake pan upside down. Place foil shiney side down and tuck the corners to create a tight corner. Moce the foil from bottom to inside the pan. Put a teaspoon plus a little extra butter in the pan. Heat on high for 30 seconds until you can spread the butter.
Stir occasionally until it starts to boil.
Then stir constantly for about 45 minutes. The stirring stops thr caramel from boiling over.
When the caramel gets lighter with bubbles over the top (you know those big ploppy bubbles which look like a lava pit).
Put in the candy thermometer in the pan. Make sure it is about an inch off the bottom and that you can still stir. You need to let the caramel get to 252 degrees ... exactly!
Move quickly! Stir the vanilla in and pour into the pan. I didn't say it before but you should have a pan large enough to handle the reaction when the vanilla causes the caramel to bubble up towards the top.
Let the caramel cool in a refrigerator for about an hour thirty minutes. Cut and wrap.
...and that is Daddies delicious delectable dandy candy caramels! By George

I saw this on the menu and I couldn't resist: Chicken wild rice soup! Yum!
Dad and I went to Grandma's in Virginia for supper tonight.
Throughout the restaurant are original antique signs. That has taken some time to accumulate.
They have half size servings available. After all, I wouldn't want to eat a full size salad. Haha
Dad wanted me to get a close-up of the Howard Rotavator (tiller) sign. I took a close-up of the sign for him and this one for the story. I grew up seeing Dad till all the gardens in the neighborhood with his orange Howard Rotavator.
Don't drive by Grandma's Virginia Grill. They serve fabulous comfort food.
