Mechanic Soap

Making our mechanic/gardener/kitchen soap today. We use beef tallow in the recipe along with triple brewed coffee and an essential oil blend that smells like fresh citrus.

At trace we add fresh coffee and pumice for exfoliation.

I wish the color stayed this beautiful "cafe au lait" color....

...but it turns a dark brown...and thats smells fresh and fabulous!

Today we also dehydrated some tomato wedges for our very own sun dried tomatoes....

...and we had a visitor that I was none to happy about. The coyotes scare me because of our lil chihuahua...they seem to want to snack on him, so I get nervous when I see them right outside my gate. This guy was waiting for a buddy that soon appeared and the two went off down the of living in the boonies I suppose.

Did You Miss Me?

Did anyone even notice I was on hiatus lol…an unplanned hiatus?! December was a rough month in the Wyatt household. I was sick for over 4 weeks…I haven’t been sick with a cold in literally years…YEARS! The Hubs has at least 2 a year and I have never caught it, well this time I caught it AND I got years worth of payback I guess. Eventually it turned to bronchitis…but I am now on the mend and feeling up to rejoining the world.

Our son and his family were to come for Christmas…but the military changed their mind and instead gave them new orders to move…but hey at least it is to Hawaii!!

THEN worst of all…my sweet dear kitty also came down ill…anemia…and after weeks of caring and force feedings trying to nurse him back…I sadly had to say goodbye this past weekend as he got untreatably worse. Extremely heartbroken!!

So Christmas 2013 was basically a bust and I am very much looking onward to 2014 being a better year. I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and you are staying warm…and here’s to looking forward to Christmas 2014, in HAWAII!!

Now on to the new (and hopefully better) New Year!!
