Homemade Eucalyptus Scrub

It’s winter. It’s mostly gray. And we are still living through lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, a pandemic… I am certain we can use some self-care. Also it’s been a while since I shared one of my scrub recipes here. I decided to create a new one: Homemade Eucalyptus Scrub. You are welcome.

I came up with this wintery scrub when I had to look my killed eucalyptus plant I had on my balcony. Every time I passed the dried eukalyptus twigs they still smelled so good and breaking up the leaves was intensifying it. Sometimes the most fun things are born because you see one thing for a long time.

Corona Diaries – Month 11

Corona Diaries blue sky craftaliciousme seeking creative life

New year same pandemic. We are close to the one year mark and when Covid19 first appeared here in Germany and gotten seriously. Eleven months into the pandemic. Can you believe it? I am not sure how I feel about it. It seems like yesterday when I was glued to the news hearing about a new mystery disease no one knew anything about. And on the other hand I feel like we lived through a hundred and ten years in the last months. And then it seems like time is on a stillstand. Whatever the outcome of it all I have a way to look back with my corona diaries. Here is to month 11.

READING GOALS FOR 2021

reading goals for 2021

You may know, that I give myself a book budget every year. It is not really to keep myself from buying to many books it is actually more the other way around. I tend to not buy what I would like to read and read books I can borrow or come by on a deal instead. Not always a smart move. So when the end of 2020 approached I had quite a bit of money left and I decided to buy all the books I had on my wishlist and that I did not receive for Christmas. So my reading goals for 2021 will include a lot of those purchases.

Currently in January

I have come across the currently post on many blogs and continuously in the last year and months and I have always enjoyed reading them. So for this year I am giving this a try and will be joining the community Anne in Residence has been building.

Beginning
As always I started my year by picking a word of the year (GRACE) and making some resolution. I love making all the plans and setting intentions. I often keep losing them along the way but I also refer back to those lists and check in. I also changed my practice of writing a gratitude journal. I didn’t feel it in 2020 and was a bit absent. So I’ve gotten myself one of the 5-year-journals and try this new approach.

Grace 2021 time for those resolution green leavery

Good Morning brand new year. Hello 2021. We have waited for you to come around. It is still early for the New Years morning and I enjoy the silence it brings. the perfect time to gather thoughts and reflect and set goals.

As always I am starting this off with announcing a word that will guide me through the new year. For 2021 GRACE will be my word. A word that sneaked itself into my list of contenders and then never let me go. I was toying with kindness but grace is more complete.
