Day 3 of oil cleansing

So far so good. I have not started breaking out like I thought I would.
My cystic acne doesn't hurt at all. That is a huge positive.

Oil cleansing

Today is the first day of trying the oil cleansing method for me.
I know I am supposed to do it at night, but I am so dirty and oily that I am going to start it before my shower.
Here is the link for more information:
I mixed up a 25%/75% batch.
I can't wait to see the good results.

A little this, a little that

Please bow your head for a moment of silence. We lost one of the guinea pigs, Ash. She was too far gone for us to do anything but hold her as she died. I wasn't very close to her, but I held her as she took her last breath and it has caused a lot of nightmares.

I have made the first batch of garlic red skinned mashed potatoes. I took 6 cups of diced potatoes, seasoning to taste, half a stick of butter/margarine and about a cup of milk and mashed it all up with the Kitchen Aid. I scooped it all into ice cube trays, covered them with plastic wrap and placed them in the freezer. Once they are done freezing I will pop them out and place in ziplock baggies and start the whole thing again.

Looking out the window I saw a tree that was in full bud and yet covered with snow. Come on spring! I know you can do it.

New Season

You wouldn't guess it's spring by the weather. It's been raining and snowing in shifts out there.
Kent and Kay just went and picked up the equipment for Kay's new sport, lacrosse. Not as expensive as hockey, but it's getting close. She is excited about it and it keeps her moving.
We are learning the how to's to the game by watching UNC and Duke play on youtube.

I have started another so simple sock garden sock, but with the zauberball.
I love this pattern. It works so well with color changing yarn.

Callie thinks she is one of the kids. She decided to check out all the plastic eggs for treats yesterday morning, before waking us up to take her out.

I put another 3 cups of chickpeas to soak. I don't know what I will use them for. I might try the roasting again. The last time they were too hard (I did burn a few) and the coating was not good. Will try a ranch coating one of these times. I REALLY want the kids to eat these as I have a lot of them and they are good for them.

I was looking at the digital picture frame on my dresser, thinking that I should take it out of the box at some point. I don't have many pictures to load onto it. I need to take more. Maybe I should have a few kid pictures and then a weeping angel, a few more kid pictures and then a funny meme.
