No..... not that "talk". The other "talk".
You know the one. The "talk" where you have to break the news to her that Blankie can't come to preschool. Yeah, that talk. She did take it pretty good though. She starts preschool on Monday and is very excited about it.
Later that afternoon, I heard her talking in the living room. I snuck in and there she was sitting on the couch with Blankie. She was having "the talk" with Blankie. She told Blankie that even though she loves her and wants her to do everything with her, she can't come to preschool. It's only for a few hours and when she gets home she will tell her all about it every day. Then she gave her Blankie a big hug and kiss. It was so cute!
In the meantime though, these stripper tapes are kicking my bum! I have done them 2 days in a row but today.... my chubby girl parts are screaming! If the screaming aching parts are what are getting the workout, I am happy. Those parts need to have their bums kicked into gear. The best thing though is a hot bath. The best thing to go with a hot bath? Scrubbing salts! Yvonne @ Stone Gable did an awesome post on how to make your own scrubbing salts. She is so uber cool! I mean how awesome are you when you make your own scrubbing salts?!
I did change it up a bit. Just a bit though. I mean there are only so many things that you can do with 1,852 pounds of cucumbers. I made pickles, relish, salads.... but you start to run out of ideas. Working with all those cucumbers I realized how much I love the smell of them. So.... here is one more ideas to do with cucumbers.
I followed the Stone Gable tutorial on how to make the smelling salts here. I used a vegetable oil though. Grape seed oil and olive oil have a smell that I didn't want to incorporate into my salts. I made an infused oil to use.
In a small pan add the oil, one sliced cucumber and 5 mint leaves. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain the oil to remove the cucumber, seeds and mint leaves. Let the oil cool to room temp and proceed with the Stone Gable tutorial. I also omitted the food coloring as the cucumber/mint infused oil will turn the salts a pale green. It is pure heaven! Although Yvonne's scents are also incredible too. I can't decide which I like more!
Hmmm.... maybe I need to go and try them both again....
