Our garden is growing well. I hope next year to have a better plan so we have vegetables ready to pick all the time. It all takes planning and this year I just planted stuff for fun with out much thought. I am finding though that I do not have enough room for all I want to grow and I am thinking I need more garden space. In fact I think I need a whole backyard makeover especially when it comes to our patio. I was hopping to get some work done in my yard while my sister was here but so far it has been very rainy.

Natural and not so Natural

On the natural end of things I have started using apple cider vinegar as a conditioner. It works well and makes my hair softer then using nothing after shampooing. So now I have my whole beauty product line. In the morning I use my face scrub, shampoo, apple cider vinegar conditioner, and body wash. When I shave I use my body wash. After showering I use my lotion on my face and under my arm pits then I put on my everyday minerals makeup. After that I spray some apple cider vinegar on my arm pits and then brush on some of the powdered deodorant. I then use my toothpaste. At the end of the day I wash my face with a bar of castile soap and use my lotion on my face. Everything is going well and I feel so much better knowing I am not using chemicals.

Although it is not natural Emily and I got tattoos on Monday. I have always wanted one and she did too so we decided to get matching tattoos. We spent a lot of time trying to decide but we settled on two purple pink flowers. We both got them on our hips mine is on my back and Emily’s is on her front.
