Two Unpleasant Things

I couldn’t finish the apple cider vinegar drink from my previous entry. I tried.  I added extra apple juice.  I took small sips.  It was too nasty.  I hate waste but I just could not handle it. There’s another recipe that supposedly tastes like lemonade. I’m very suspicious, though. I don’t think my idea of … Continue reading

Apple Cider Vinegar Elixir

We’ve had some illness around here lately.  Pneumonia, sniffles, upset tummies.  Not sure what I’ve got but it’s not terrible.  I’ve been hearing about the benefits of apple cider vinegar for years but was hesitant to to try them because I’m particularly fond of the taste of ACV. But then I found this Sweet Apple … Continue reading

Oil Pulling: Day 21

Am I really on day 21?  I wanted to read this book before I started but I was too anxious to get started & never bought the book: My gums are even pinker now.  My teeth look slightly whiter.  But I’ve got a coat on my tongue.  A thin, white coat is normal & healthy. … Continue reading

Salty Foot Soak

I saw this on Pinterest.  Just about everyone loves a foot bath.  I certainly do, so I had to try this one. I linked it but apparently, the recipe isn’t there anymore.  So here it is: 1/2 cup Epsom salt 1/2 cup baking soda 1/8 cup hydrogen peroxide 3% 10 drops of essential oil (I … Continue reading

The Burgers!

I finally made these sweet potato burgers. They were super YUMMY!!  Even the Complainiacs ate them without complaining!  And they complain about 99% of what they eat, no matter who makes it, what’s in it, they’ll find something to complain about.  Li’l C ate very slowly & reluctantly.  Everyone who knew what the burgers were … Continue reading

Our Camping Adventure

Our plan was to camp Friday-Monday.  I wanted to come home by Saturday.  I was really sad.  Before we lost our Baby, we had made plans to take him camping.  Rose would stay in the cabin with me & the Baby, everyone else would stay in tents.  We never got that chance 😦  I cried … Continue reading

Oil Pulling: Days 3-8 And A Tooth Powder Recipe

On the 3rd day of oil pulling, I noticed that the taste in my mouth wasn’t nearly as bad as the day before.  It hasn’t been that bad since!  I’m thankful for that because Day 2 was so nasty!  I haven’t examined my tongue because I think tongues are gross, even my own.  It’s the … Continue reading

Camping on Shabbat

This is something we’ve never done, camping on Shabbat.  I mean, we’ve been camping on weekends but not since we started celebrating Shabbat.  I wonder how that’s gonna work out?  I guess they go together.  Shabbat is about rest, camping is about relaxing. What about the campfire?  As long as it’s started before sundown, it’s … Continue reading

Homemade Floor Cleaner

I made this recipe.  I used it in the kitchen & the bathroom.  I used it last Friday & the bathroom floor still looks great!  The kitchen, of course, gets more traffic.  Plus it gets food spilled on it daily.  But it looked great for a day or so! I keep thinking I added borax … Continue reading
