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

E76 – Ali is learning to weld

The build is fast approaching, and I’m going to need to know how to weld for a small portion of it. I’m just experimenting at this point and trying to sort out how it all works!

Ep 72 – Adding Plants to the Memorial Garden. Happy Birthday, Mom.

More work on the inexpensive memorial garden. It would have been my mom’s 75th birthday this year. We lost her19 years ago, and have still always celebrated her birthday. This year, I wanted to be sure to get the plants into the ground because she loved her summer flowers.

Episode 71 – $0 Budget Memorial Garden Progress

I am working on a memorial garden for my lost people, and I’m trying to spend as little as I can to do it, because I’m strapped for cash at the moment.

Memorial Garden on a $0 Budget – Protecting the Septic Cleanout

I have had a rough pain week, but I’m trying to push forward on at least one project on the property whilst we remain in this perpetual holding pattern on the house build. I’m trying to figure out the best way to do drainage near the septic cleanout, so that it doesn’t fill with dirt. I am using a bunch of rocks from a pile that has been on the property for the past year or two, but I don’t think it’s going to be enough.
Also an update on the veggie garden which isn’t looking so hot. I really need to get my plants into some containers!
Special thanks this week to my amazing friends who lent me their voices! I let them decide how they’d like to be credited. hee hee

Planning a Garden, Poopies New Toys, & Dowsing for a Well

Bob the Builder made a place for an elevated garden, so Ali is planning out a flower garden/memorial garden.
The poopy dogs got some new toys made by petstages – you can get a similar toy here https://amzn.to/2Re3tLu
the original I purchased from walmart – https://www.walmart.com/ip/Petstages-Firehose-Friends-Zebra/152706452
Mike’s mom is about to have a well drilled, and hired a dowser to come look for water. Ali got a chance to try it out.
