    Thieves Oil is an essential oil blend a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary essential oils that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma.

    Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary and vinegar that they believed provided protection while they were stealing.

    Thieves oil?
    Here is a link if anyone wants to read about it
    https://www.healthline.com/health/thieves-oil
    In bygone times thieves apparently stole off the plague victims without succumbing to the plague. So oneday the King summonsed the thieves.
    ‘What is your secret,’ he asked. ‘How do you manage to steal from dead plague victims, and not catch the plague yourself.’
    ‘Oh that is the Alchemist’s secret’ they replied, ‘but he sells us a blend of oils.’
    I am not sure what happened to the Alchemist. But that blend of oils became known as Thieves Oil @SlimLizzy

    I still say grab a sleeping cat, shove first finger and tablet down cat’s throat, then quickly insert the thumb too as you withdraw first finger, cat’s eyes are very wide, and he has no choice but to swallow with my thumb in his mouth. Injured look from cat as I withdraw my thumb. Now, now dear, I say, and squirt a very low dose of cbd oil in his mouth. One blissful cat...cleaning himself up to get any overspray...

    The sunrise was brilliant. A huge red sun. I had intended taking photos, but I forgot my phone :(
    Also beautiful pink mists over the industrial areas and pylons, making it look like a mystical fairyland scene. I can remember and I will be making a few quick sketches now.

    Thank you for the painting compliment @Muddy Cyclist

    Hugs for @dunelm - hope the news about your dad is good; @Krystyna23040 and @SlimLizzy over Archie and The Cat respectively; @Muddy Cyclist over ongoing abscess issue; @Alien Aspie for Miss Daisy being so caring and anyone else feeling the need of a hug. No fbg from me as I'm still working my way through how to find some colder weather menus which might please, nourish, maintain a weight I want and be worth testing. Sleep score, temp and SPo2 suggest yesterday "worked"

    good morning all :)

    3.7 swiftly followed by 4.2 yesterday morning and 4.3 today ;)

    Cloudy today after our overnight fog. It was foggy yesterday morning too but turned out to be a lovely sunny day. Over to mum's for dinner yesterday then sat reading. Reading makes time vanish :hilarious:

    Intermitent computer problems the last couple of days, a storage drive keeps disappearing, I think it's a cable problem. I shall have to disinter the machine from it's cupboard and perform surgery. The surgery should not take too long but the disinterment is quite another story :D

    Hope your day treats you kindly :)

    @SlimLizzy - cat wrangling, rather you than me;) but it's good that he has a forgiving nature :)

    @gennepher - that thieves' oil recipe sounds interesting, nice sketch yesterday and I like your teasle very much, it looks as though it's reaching for the sun :)

    @Krystyna23040 - so glad Archie continues to recover :)

    @JohnEGreen - some lovely photos there and kudos for carrying your camera, I have two and have got out of the habit of carrying one with me :sorry:

    @Alien Aspie - glad if you have found a further satisfying outlet for your art, is instagram good? :)

    @dunelm - your quick bamboo is good as always and the latest work of the bird on the branch is very effective, so delicate and well balanced :joyful:
    hugs to you and I hope you get good news about your dad soon.

    @Muddy Cyclist - your quick sketch of the geese is great, it really captures that vibrant, seeming chaos :joyful:
    Good that you got to manage recorder harmony, it's soothing for the psyche ;)

    art bit -
    didn't do much art yesterday, and should get back to doing it regularly :sorry: I need to make a small sketching kit and get used to carrying it and my camera when I go out.

    another wave, done from a photo found online

    Thank you.

    I have a few IG accounts that I use for business and they work very well. I’m using an old account for the art that I cleaned out and re-labelled. Given the potential audience it is worth it, you just need to use hashtags which is not hard to master.

    Thank you Krystyna, it is easily done and I often have to edit my posts.
    I am afraid I always try to see the bizarre or funny side, the reality is often very different.

    @geefull Thank you. It is such a relief he is recovering well. I phoned home and Mr K said he had asked to go out for a walk, which of course is a bit too soon after yesterday.

    My mother was widowed at 38 when I was six. He was 43.
    It is a long long time ago!

    To misquote forest gump.
    Life is not always a box of chocolates! :)

    Your different tail, Ian, reminded me of the rather rude ditty about the dogs having a meeting!
