>Last Saturday and Sunday

>Saturday was a fun day, Gwen and I did some errands in the morning, then we went to the park, I forgot my camera so I took pictures with my phone. Funny pictures like this one, similar to one I took before with Gwen. Then she got in the spirit of things and took this picture of me. But what was I taking a picture of?

Well her, of course!

Then Sunday morning, Tigger made a long arduous trip from his bedroom to the living room. It just wore him out.


>This is not your typical “Sissified” Friendship promise. I thought it was kinda funny, and sounds like some of my friends. So here it is and enjoy.

Are you tired of those sissy ‘friendship’ poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?

Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of True Friendship. You WON’T see cutesy little smiley faces just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad, I will jump on the person who made you sad like a spidermonkey jacked up on Mountain Dew!!!

2. When you are blue, I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile, I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you’re scared, we will high tail it out of here.

5. When you are worried, I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining, ya big baby!!!!

6. When you are confused, I will use little words.

7. When you are sick, Stay away from me until you are well again. I don’t want whatever you have.

8. When you fall, I’ll pick you up and dust you off–After I laugh my butt off!!

9. This is my oath…Ipledge it to the end. ‘Why?’ you may ask;–because you are my FRIEND!***********************

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only YOU can feel the true warmth.

Kinda brings a tear to your eye doesn’t it?

>Sugar scrub

>8 oz demera sugar turbindo sugar
1 oz vegetable glycerin
1 oz liquid castile soap
1 oz cold pressed oil (jojoba or coconut)
1/2 tsp vitamin E
1/4 tsp essential oil

All these supplies were available at my local natural foods store. The castile soap was already infused with essential oil, so I was able to skip that ingredient. All the ingredients came to under $30. It’s enough to make $120 worth of sugar scrub if I bought it from a store. This is made fresh and will last about a month. If you’re not going to use it in a month or less either make a smaller batch or refrigerate it. If its cold though it will separate and the cold pressed oil will solidify so you’ll have to warm it to room temperature before using it.

Basically mix all the oils and soap into the sugar. It will separate slightly so you’ll need to stir it when you use it.

The raw sugar is brown so the color isn’t pretty, but it works as well exfoliating all over the body. You can use it on your face as well.
