Fall into the Season 🎄

What is it about fall and winter that makes us feel some kind of a way? The changing of leaves, beautiful scenery, holidays, cool evenings, winter boots, flannel shirts, and cuddling in front of the fireplace. These months are darkened by the time change (falling back/springing forward), but that’s where I find my favorites; comforting outfits and foods to warm me up from the inside out when it starts to get chilly! As the nights cool to a brisk chill, time change days are shortened, and the changing of the leaves. It’s part of mother nature to clean from all the mess we made during spring and summer months. Fall is cooler to kill off germs, bacteria, and sickness. Changing of leaves reminds me of the “out with the old,in with the new”. A time to regroup ourselves. Everything seems to slow down in pace, comfort is more noticeable than spring and summer months. It reminds me of cleaning our minds and inner being. As time creates laziness, “me time”, and our thoughts fall in season.

🍁 The changing of leaves 🍂
As the days begin to shorten and the temperature drops, the leaves start to change and create a stunning visual all over the world. The trees, normally alive with greens and browns, transform into a canvas of reds, oranges, and yellows. With the changing of leaves comes a subtle reminder of the changing of seasons.
The changing of leaves is not only beautiful to look at, but it can be a source of comfort as well. It serves as a reminder that despite the darkening of days and the chill in the air, new life is around the corner. The leaves may be dying and falling off, but they symbolize the hope that spring will come eventually. This hope brings warmth to our hearts and minds as we enter into a season of darkness and cold.
The changing of leaves also gives us an opportunity to take part in outdoor activities while enjoying nature. Whether it’s going on a hike to see the changing foliage, or just taking a leisurely stroll through the park, there are plenty of opportunities to appreciate and admire nature’s seasonal 🍁transformation.
The changing of leaves is truly a magical experience that brings with it the promise of brighter days ahead. As we take in the beauty of this special time of year, may we all find comfort in knowing that the light will eventually return.

🦋 Beautiful scenery
As the days get shorter and the temperatures start to drop, we are reminded of all the beauty that the fall and winter months bring. The changing of leaves creates a stunning display of vibrant oranges, reds, and yellows that blanket the ground. Trees become adorned with colorful foliage, 🍂making them look like a masterpiece crafted by an artist. The scent of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and fresh apples fills the air, bringing warmth and comfort.
The crisp autumn air gives us the perfect opportunity to take a walk and admire the natural beauty of nature. The chilly evenings provide us with an excuse to curl up by the fire and enjoy some hot cocoa. And, of course, who could forget winter snowfall? The sight of snowflakes falling from the sky can be mesmerizing; it’s like a winter wonderland. ❄️
The fall and winter months offer so much beauty and tranquility, it’s no wonder why we feel some kind of a way when they roll around. From the changing of leaves to the winter snowfall, these two seasons provide us with a unique experience that can only be appreciated in person. So grab your scarf, wrap yourself up in a cozy blanket, and go out and explore all that these months have to offer.

❄️ Holidays
There is something truly special about the fall and winter months. Whether it be the changing of leaves, the beautiful scenery, or the holidays, these months bring out a unique sense of comfort and joy in all of us. During this time, evenings become cooler, sweaters come out, boots are worn and many of us find ourselves cuddling up in front of a warm fireplace. 🔥
Holidays are an integral part of the fall and winter months. From Halloween to Christmas, there are so many opportunities to spend quality time with family and friends, share stories and create memories that will last a lifetime. Celebrating holidays is a great way to celebrate tradition and make each season special.
For those who find themselves living far away from family and friends during the holidays, there are still plenty of ways to experience the joys of the season. One way is to celebrate alone by indulging in favorite holiday activities such as baking treats, decorating the house, or wrapping presents. Doing these activities alone can bring just as much joy as spending time with others.
No matter how you choose to spend your fall and winter months, remember to cherish each moment and create wonderful memories that will last forever.

🆒 Cool evenings
As the summer months come to an end, we are blessed with cooler evenings and the changing of leaves. The sun sets earlier and earlier, leaving us with a peaceful darkness to embrace. These cool evenings can be the perfect time to cozy up and relax with your loved ones. Grab a blanket and a mug of hot cocoa, light up a fire in the fireplace, and curl up on the couch. It’s the perfect atmosphere to share stories or simply enjoy each other’s company without feeling the heat of summer. Whether you’re out taking a night stroll or enjoying a movie indoors, these cool evenings offer something special that can’t be found anywhere else.🍿
And let’s not forget about the gorgeous scenery of fall that comes with it. The changing of leaves from green to red, orange, and yellow make for some stunning visuals that can be admired from any angle. Taking the time to observe all the beauty this season has to offer will put your heart and soul at ease.
So, don’t miss out on these lovely cool evenings. Take some time to appreciate the little moments in life that make it so special.

👢 Winter boots
It’s no surprise that winter boots are one of the most essential items to have during the fall and winter months. Not only do they keep your feet warm and dry, but they also add a stylish touch to any outfit. Whether you’re heading out for a night on the town or just wanting to stay cozy around the house, there’s nothing like slipping into a pair of warm and stylish winter boots.
From slip-on ankle boots to fur-lined shearling styles, there are so many options to choose from when it comes to winter boots. Look for weatherproof materials such as leather, suede, rubber, and synthetic fabrics to ensure your feet stay warm and dry. When shopping for winter boots, make sure you pick a pair that fits snugly and provides support for your feet – this will help keep you comfortable throughout the colder months.
If you’re looking for some serious warmth and coziness, try pairing your winter boots with thick wool socks or thermal liners. This is a great way to keep your feet extra warm in cold climates. You can also dress up your winter boots with a pair of thick leg warmers or leg protectors for extra coverage.
No matter what style or type of winter boot you choose, there’s no doubt that these cozy footwear essentials are perfect for battling the chilly temperatures of fall and winter!

🧥 Flannel shirts
The cooler months of fall and winter bring with them a unique set of feelings that can be hard to put into words. Whether it’s the changing leaves, cozy evenings, or winter fashion, something about this time of year just feels special. One of the most iconic winter staples is the flannel shirt.
Flannel shirts offer the perfect balance of comfort and style. Not only are they warm and comfortable, but they can also add an element of style to any outfit. You can pair a flannel shirt with jeans for a casual, relaxed look or dress it up with trousers for a more formal occasion. You can find flannel shirts in a variety of colors and patterns, allowing you to express your individual style.
Flannel shirts also make great gifts for friends and family. They’re versatile enough that anyone can enjoy wearing them, from young children to elderly adults. Whether you’re looking for something practical or simply a way to show someone you care, a flannel shirt is a great option.
So if you’re looking to embrace the coziness of fall and winter, consider adding a flannel shirt to your wardrobe. With their timeless style and comfort, you’ll soon see why these shirts have become such a beloved part of the cooler months.

🔥Cuddling in front of the fireplace
As the days become shorter and cooler, it’s the perfect time to hunker down inside and get cozy. One of the most beloved winter activities is gathering around a fireplace with loved ones for some warmth and comfort. It can be a great way to make memories, bond with family or friends, or just relax and reflect. Not everyone has a traditional wood-burning fireplace in their home, but there are still many options available to replicate the experience. Electric fireplaces are becoming increasingly popular, and they’re relatively inexpensive and easy to install. Or if you’re feeling creative, you can build a makeshift fire pit outside and enjoy the beautiful night sky.

No matter how you choose to enjoy the warmth of the fire, it’s sure to bring some peace and joy during the cooler months. So take some time to snuggle up with your family, friends, or pets in front of the fireplace and create lasting memories.

As the winter months offer a peace of mind. To regroup, spend time with family and friends – welcome the memories. The cozy evening in front the fireplace 🔥or in the kitchen baking holidays candies – Fall into Season. Snowflakes will soon glimmer through the night under/over the colorful festive lights. Let it snow – the season may give shorter & darker days, but cheerful lights can brighten the mood to blink the nights away.🎄 Are you into the season? What’s holiday traditions that gets you in the Holiday Spirit? ❄️

🎄 Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

💸Referral Codes

Save a Little Cash

 Referral Codes, Extra rewards or effortless research? Peace of Mind Assistance?


Most companies offer new customers discounts or rewards for services used regularly.  Just  by signing up for or purchasing new product and service needed. Commonly failing to research hidden offers a company may promote.  Once completed a signup or creating an account not applying a referral code or coupon- results uncompleted terms.  Benefits lost due to failure completing requirements at signup.

Many new customers loss of discounts and benefits are plentiful. 

We have all created an account for a new game, credit card, cash app, or just signup to subscription.  Amongst new signup or creating an account – a referral code provided to offer benefits.  Just for signing up free or termed product or service is offered.  Either the big or small fine print, by completing the task or requirements using the referral code – rewarded for sharing a link attached to the service or product.. Now you gain the promotional benefits if requirements are meet.  Easy enough, right?

A month ago, you signed up for a new streaming service. Only to discover a promotional commercial offering 50% off monthly service for new customers. Why wasn’t the offer applied to your service? Its all about resources and research.  Companies advertise to reach new customers generally through their services. Other words, existing customers see the advertisement and have to share with friends and family. Companies save money by advertising on their own service or product.

Switching providers to gain discounts are common amongst existing customers. Accumulated increase for monthly service, while new customer services are discounted. Service providers who offer promotional discounts are ignored. Yes ignored because switching providers disrupts routine. 

Complaining about price with no effort to change defeats the purpose.

So why do we lack patience to take control of services available? The effort needed to talk and negotiate.  A fear of “No”. A fear of effort to make change comfortable.

This is a new world.  Use referral codes, promo coupons, ask friends about services they use.  Every dollar and cents count as inflation rolling at high turbulence.  The return of resources and research is a must utilize on demand.  

If you are struggling financially the examples below are real life assistance.

 With all social media platforms make a simple post. Help one another with programs or assistance that change give someone peace of mind.  Share the love… Examples:

⬅Hey friends

Just taking a minute to share a few resources to save money.   Products or services that might benefits your current situation. As my friend knew that basic cable service has increased. By cutting the cord, streaming has the benefit of discounted EBB (emergency broadband service) provided by eligibility up to $30 off phone or internet. Apply through your service provider ask about the ACP wireless service. The service application must be complete through the national verifier website. The website gives pretty clear instructions to check eligibility for internet and phone services. 

Yes, this is a real program

In regards, I hope this offers someone a peace of mind financially and is shared.

Example (2):

⬅ Hey Friends

May this reach you with blessings.  Wow covid-19 has kicked ass without looking back. From financial struggles to mental health concerns social distancing is like the zombie apocalypse.  A new world of confusion and dazed. A time for alcohol sales to hit record highs is a fact during 2020 and 2021. Lockdown created a social distancing we still long to redefine.

Everyday as we are challenged financially. Blessings are appreciated.  Utilize your community action centers. Utility assistance. Rent assistance for those impacted by    covid-19. Health at Home eviction relief fund must apply online.

Resources are available. Share these blessings with those who need peace of mind and assistance.

After all, its doubtful any sleep was lost over a referral code. One importantly missed due past conversation at lunch with your co-worker about signing up for a service they use.  The 14 days elapsed and $50 has washed away.  For not using a friends referral code. Now you create a new account to receive a special bonus. Referral code for applying or signing up- a 14 carrot gold plated referral code that is long forgotten. Or lost eexistence.

Does the Friday night gatherings with friends highlight; benefits rewarded from referral bonuses shared? Huh? Funny line right? 

The whole key to referral codes. Google them when signing up for a new product or service. Share your referral code link after  signup is complete.  Those 5 minutes to share an email offering your referral code could offer rewards.  Someone could save the offer to signup at a later date.  A simple share of referral codes can have positive results.   

So what does referral codes or bonuses really offer?

Is it worth the time to share your special link referral code?

The limited time and terms applied to receive the rewards are unlikely completed.  As the bonus offer is uncompleted; the company gains with no loss of promotional profits.  The unclaimed bonus is money or benefits offered for signing up, that could save money for added services.

🏕Our Hidden Path

Secret Direction to Purpose

Oh, the world we live in today! Wouldn’t life be much simpler at times, if we had instructions or directions? Be to easy to navigate through our challenges and obstacles. We are late in discovery most time with everyday life, or overlook what we could of had long before. My purpose and hidden path.

Growing up in the county, 80’s and 90’s. – a peace of mind- tranquility, A time in history; outside at night,  echo’s of bullfrog carried through the woods.  Crickets a pain in the ass, lighting bugs, routine catching at nightfall.  Running through mud puddles after a good rain, drinking from the garden hose, and the joy of weeding the garden. Snapping green beans for canning, shucking corn on the cobb, cucumber for pickling, and berries for jam.  Watching dad fix the lawn mower or replacing brakes on the car.

An elderly couple lived on the driveway to my house. Maybe to be a pest or be nosey. Of course, visiting or getting in their way, likely got on their nerves. To me it was nice to check in on them when needed or just to visit to check new projects. Old man Clyde had a wood shed where he spent his time. Shep a boarder collie, like Lassie the TV show. Shep was old but he let us play, but watched as we picked tomotoes from the garden. Every moment was learning tools when Clyde explain his projects he was working on. One day Clyde was tinkering with a push mower-  sparked to gasoline; the whole shed in flames. Playing outside seeing the blaze- running to our uncle, he rushed to help. Old man Clyde so determined to save his burning shed – he suffered burns. Not wanting to go for treatment, conveinced he had too. Ambulance eventually took old man Clyde to hospital. Later told he had 1st degree burns trying to extinguish the blaze. Once Clyde got released to come home. Not hesitating to help his recovery; change bandages on his legs or check the mail. Or carrying in groceries was always worth a pack of gum and .50 cent or $1.00. He recovered over time. His wife was always glad to see me, she knew it took chores off her. Evaline was a fragile as her body was slow moving at times. I help with hanging curtains up and house hold things if needed. While at school, Evaline tried to change curtians, slipped from the stool broke her hip.

Caregiver become priority each day, after school. Positioning pillows, laundry, or help with other household chores, I was there. Just as her strength improved, she started using a walker, happiness covered my face.  Her recovery gave me joy since it took a lot of work.  Friendship had a special place deep in the heart.  One afternoon after school; knocking on the door- no answer. The car was gone but she was always home. Something was different. Mom was outside as I walked down the driveway. Starting to cry, mom hugged me saying she will write or call. She went to live with her daughter in Indiana.  Unable to say good-bye, heart broke, thinking my best friend didn’t say good-bye.  My days walking past the trailer, wondering if she thought of me. That day carried a weight–; good-bye’s hold much love– bring tears to my eyes.  Reunited visits of family or friends capture the heartfelt love of joy. And we all know the final days of life good-bye’s, can’t be prepared for. Endless tears….

As a young girl, everything inside was torn apart. Weak feeling, crying, and angry, wanting to be alone. What had happened? Kids aren’t suppose to be sad.  Every part of me, experienced hurt. Waiting for a letter or phone call from my friend. Mom and I had tried a few times, to contact her. The phone number she left– no answer.  Not a single letter in the mail.

To ease the pain, I wrote my friend many letters.  With no response, writing in a journal gave my heart relief. Over time, thinking about her many days. In my world, I knew she lost my address and number, to me she lived forever somewhere.

A plan was created written in crayon, marker, sealed with stickers and pink nail polish. Written by a brown eyed, brown haired 7-year-old- just in case she forgot about me.

  Everyday Minds Matter – mental health and well-being set the path for everyone. Establish practice to focus, retention, and concentration; healthy habits to prevent obstacles in mental status.  Overcome mental health challenges faced that affect daily routine. 

Writing that filled notebooks, diaries, and scrap paper- focused on my future dream.

In little time, old man Clyde move away. It was diffetent for a moment. Then one day, my mamaw- (fathers’ mom) move in the trailer.  The void was filled. Not skipping a beat; my brother and I had mamaw to aggravate.  With no time to waste, enjoying my childhood– documented every step of the way. Seems that the conversations grew on me. It was interesting to listen to my mamaws childhood. In my eyes it was more than interesting. A world where play was all work. In the early 1900’s not many toys were made. Everything from learning and entertainment was outdoors. Friends weren’t always close so most were visiting relatives.

A path to being a caregiver seemed to start young. Looking back I seemed to fall into the right path. Life takes us places and sometimes times passes- that all makes sense. Did you think back to your hidden path? How accurate did your role as a child play to your work or career choice?

Until our minds meet again.. Be safe out there and remember Everyday Minds Matter
