Wow…such a blessing of a day in Ohio today. The sun is shining. I hear the neighbor powering up the chain saw, apparently cutting fallen branches, clearing. Tells me that I need to do a somewhat similar job later, burn a bit of a pile. That is, if the wind dies down some. Again, reminds me of April, not December. I love it!
Today was aptly named “Save Face Monday” because I worked on a small batch of face cream in the shop this afternoon. I am hoping the formula thickens up in the next 72 hours. It looks and smells great, but it is a bit more soupy than I would have liked. Soupy isn’t the right word for it either. Hmmm…let’s go for very lightly whipped, not heavy. I was looking for something more in-between. For a face cream, I do not like much scent, but I am extremely happy with the outcome of this one. The lotions are now where I want them to be, light for body and hands, but not so light that it runs off of the palm of the hand when when a dollup is held sideways. Onto the creams… .
I am having writer’s problems today. Lost for words!
Went to the grocery this morning. I was thinking about a blip that another friendly blogger shared regarding saving money, making ends stretch, especially during this economy. I began using coupons again, the first time in 7 years. And before I head to the store now, I plan, and part of that includes checking the recipe books for fairly simple meals that can stretch over several days. It feels good to be out of the restaurants as often as we were, and it also feels better when buttoning up the jeans! My husband is a very picky eater. There isn’t much more to be said about that. 🙂 With the sense of humor in mind, I announced to him, “You will no longer know what you are going to eat for dinner, until it is being prepared.” He replied, “Just make sure I have peanut butter and jelly on hand.” Oh boy…rotten (but I like him)!
Off to prepare to feed the goats for now. Perhaps my writing brain will open up later this evening.
