I'm thinking about going a little more natural with personal products like this.....
Maybe I'll try my hand at this kind of soap making, but I prefer castile soaps, so I may try those instead, even though they do have quite a long cure time.
We're seriously considering doing this.... I know, I know...this may be shocking to some of you ;)
We've always had quite a few chickens for eggs, but this year are considering taking it a step further. The reason is not because it's cheaper, because it will not be, however the reasons are purely for health and that we will know exactly where ours came from and how they were fed. We have the property for it and I think it will be an educational experience for the kids and for us all to connect with where our food comes from. We're still in the planning and thinking stage....but, I'll let ya know! ;)
I'm still interested in gardening and doing so as organically as possible. I'm thinking about the best way to lay out our garden this year and will hopefully be preparing my soil later this week.
I almost always cook at home, very rarely eating out. But, I'm still thinking about different ways to cook the same old thing and how to stretch leftovers or save them to create another meal entirely.
I've been thinking a great deal about time management this new year. This is definitely one area that must be included in my commitment for this year! I love the tips here....they could easily fit into my daily life. Of course, I need a list to follow :)
I want to re-read this book and take advantage of more of the great ideas included. I already use a few recipes and ideas that I've come to love...I'll share some of those soon!
I want to begin reading this book. I bought it right before Christmas, but I still haven't had the time to sit down and read it. I hope it's as good as it looks!
I want to make more time to get involved in a Bible Study like this or something entirely on my own...I need to get back in the habit of dailiness in this area :)
So.....as I sit with a morning cup of coffee (and the keyboard) in my hands, these are the things that are on my mind today......what's on your mind?
Have a great Tuesday!
