First up is my aromatherapy diffuser. Leo has suffered from horrible storm anxiety. It was so bad that we looked into getting a prescription medicine. I was not happy with the thought of the side effects including liver problems. I found some information on using essential oils with dogs. I put lavender in the diffuser when it starts thundering. Leo calms down enough to find a quiet place.
The second item I am loving is my $3 yard sale electric water kettle. I honestly use it 4+ times a week for heating water quickly for cooking or making cups of tea.
The third item is our outdoor washing sink. W was going to throw this away last year when I asked if he could set it up by the garden. It is great for rinsing off produce before we bring it inside. He even installed a pipe that routes the water back into the garden so it is not wasted.
