Ep 88 – Ali’s Staycation Solid Lotion Tutorial

Mike had to go to Denver for a few days to do Denver things, and left Ali home alone to do those things that Ali won’t do while Mike is around
#solidlotion #tutorial #DIY #archedcabin #homestead

Recipe:
Makes 9 solid lotions if you’re using 2 oz tins.
Just under 1 cup of beeswax. Leave about 1/4″ from the top. Use less if you’d like it a little softer
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons of evening primrose oil or any other supplemental oil you’d like (optional)
2 tablespoons vitamin e oil (optional)
2 tablespoons fragrance oil. I used Nag Champa in this batch.**** If using essential oils, I would use a capful at the most. They are potent!****


Melt your beeswax & coconut oil in a jar or pyrex measuring glass in a bath of hot water, and add in your olive oil to heat and blend. Once all the oils are melted, remove from heat and add the optional oils and fragrance oil. Blend well with a popsicle stick, and pour into your 2 oz tins. Allow to cool.

Ep 86 If a tree falls in the woods, does anyone hear it?

I got my revenge on the log that smashed my toe. More weather delays, and preparing for winter on the homestead.
One of the standing dead down by our gate blew over. The tree was easily 70′ long. Had to get it out of the way so we could go about our day.
Have a teenager who is a bit nervous about learning to drive? I got mine going on the ATV to take some of the fear out of operating a car or truck. #archedcabin #firewood #chainsaw #husqvarna

Shag Carpet Vs Poopy Dogs

Jet Girl and Tank Girl (poopies) have been with us just under 2 years, while Mimiteh and Aku have been with me for just under 7 years. The dogs have been very slowly integrated into the household, but the Aku is very aggressive towards the dogs, so we have to separate them when they are all in the house together. So we’ve been slowly getting the dogs more and more used to more space, and the cats are getting more used to the dogs through the kennel at night.
The only problem is that the dogs are obsessed with just laying next to the room where the cats are and hovering in hopes that they can interact, but then they get bored and Jet starts eating the carpet. So we took the carpet out last week. Also: some fun on the ATV and our furry friends around the ranch. #homestead #dogs #cats #drama #ugly #gross #nastyass #shagcarpet #atv #colorado #outdoors #deer #colorado #mountains #snow #spring #DIY #farticles

Blizzard, Day Trip, & Dowsing, OH MY!

Well that blizzard was a little nuts, wasn’t it?
Update on the dogs and their supplements, some snow, some tractoring, and I lost my glasses, so I attempted to dowse for them in desperation.
My dowsing sort of failed, but my intuition was dead on!

Trespassers and the Stupid Tractor.

Today wasn’t a very good day, ladies and gentlemen. The tractor has just… we’re so frustrated. We can’t do anything with the thing, and when it snows a lot, we just aren’t going anywhere if we want to get back up the driveway. 
Add to that the feeling of violation that comes with discovering that someone has just helped themselves to a tour of your entire property and then slipped off into the snow. So security is back in place.

Firewood & Fashion

Firewood & FashionWinter is coming, and with winter comes the use of firewood. Lots of firewood. 

We needed to move several stacks of firewood, split them, and stack them in our wood pile. They had been next door on Mike’s Mom’s Property, and needed to be moved anyway for excavation work to happen for her home build, and since the cold weather is fast approaching we took advantage of the pleasant weather to get some work done.
