We are trying to get back to some sort of "normal" around here, whatever that is. Friday the 13th with a full moon proved to be a day we won't soon forget!
Gerry got his bandages off yesterday, a thin scar runs from the corner of his eye to the end of his chin, but it's healing nicely and I think with some research we will come up with something that will help fade the scar. I have read olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil. Anyone got any other home remedies that have worked for them? His parents are settling in to their new life, we will go visit this week and check up on them. Wesley has a friend staying a few days, and I finally got my house cleaned yesterday. From the looks of things, it has been awhile, I have no idea when I last cleaned the bathrooms, it showed!
I am reading The Good Life, by Scott Nearing. This book has been around awhile and like a lot of things, I am late finding it. But what a treasure of wisdom this book is. I imagine his other books are equally as good, this is the only one the library had available. Gerry and I are moving more and more towards having a self sufficient life and this book is full of helpful wisdom. We have started small, three chickens, vegetables grown in buckets so we can chase the sun on our shady land, eating as many whole foods as possible, eliminating processed foods, meat and as much sugar as we can stand. Little things, but they make a difference without being drastic and impossible to achieve. Now making soap. Have you read a label on your soap or shampoo lately? and we wonder why our world is cropping up cancer centers like a wildfire spreading......
I was going to write about my feelings on hand made soaps, but it is early morning, I just decided I am still sleepy, so I'll come back to it later, I think..... enjoy your day!
