I have discovered a new podcast this month. It is called Pantsuit Politics. It is a bipartisan political podcast with two women, one from the left and one from the right. They don't call each other names. They don't shout. They just tell it like it is. I listen to this on my phone with the app Podcasts from the Apple store. Love this app!
My favorite snack for the month is not new. But I usually only enjoy it in the fall. And that is honey crisp apples with peanut butter. Yummy! Honeycrisp has become my new favorite apple. I used to only buy Gala but this year I took a liking to honecrisp. They were developed by the University of Minnesota to be grown especially in cold climates. I like them because they are 'crisp'. I hate a mooshy apple. How about you? And we buy those little snack cup sizes of peanut butter because I can get them at the Dollar Tree for $1 for eight little tubs. Good price.
Do you eat snack bars at your house? Like granola bars? Or grab one to go as you run out the door? I like one in the morning with my coffee. Or in the afternoon as a pick me up. But I am not a big fan of the granola-type bars. When we were on our Whole 30 last year I discovered Lara Bars. They are a bit pricer than normal granola bars. But so worth it in my opinion. My favorite is the Apple Pie. Or the Cherry Pie! Yum!
My granddaughters knew about this next favorite long before me. I just got one while we were at the Kansas State Fair in September. It is called a PopSocket! It helps make your phone easier to grip. Or turns it into a stand. Or you can just play with it. I do that a lot. I like the 'popping' sound it makes. I only have one on my phone but I do like the idea of having two and wrapping your earbuds around them. Hmmmmm might have to buy another one. Do you have a Popesocket?
My favorite essential oil this month has been Peppermint by Better Homes and Gardens selection at Walmart. I don't think it is as strong as the ones I purchased from Grove Collaborative but I like diffusing it while I am at my desk. Peppermint is supposed to invigorate the mind and the senses while bringing a feeling of peace. I just like the smell! I've also added it to the lavender which I diffuse at night and it gives a pleasing aroma. Do any of you use essential oils? What are your thoughts?
I finished listening to Jane Eyre on Audible during October. I will be sharing my review soon. I loved this audio book. I had never read the novel itself. I tried to once and I just couldn't get into it. But, after listening to the book on Audible, I think Jane was a strong, independent lady who was long before her time. And it's a great love story!
That it folks. My favorites for October. Now it's your turn to tell me what your favorites were. I love hearing from you!
