Buying Locally Grown Honey 6 comments
A few Christmases ago, I had an interesting conversation with my mother in law.  She asked my thoughts on the “whole honey from China thing”.   I confess, I had absolutely no clue what she was talking about.  I know that I do my buying honey local, but I hadn’t heard anything regarding China.     She went on to explain to me some things that she had read and seen on the news, and showed surprise that someone like me, who […]

I love feeling like I can make my own homemade cleaner!  It makes me feel like I’m doing something right.   During the Christmas season we had a lot of oranges given to us as gifts, and we also happened to buy a bunch of them, since that seems to be the time that oranges are so dang cheap!   If you eat a lot of oranges, you can save the peels and make a nice, easy, homemade cleaner for […]

I love a soft, silky sheet!  I’ve heard a little about the fabric Tencel, but honestly, never paid attention to it until now.  Of course, when I read the claim that it is eco-friendly, I had to check more into it.   Tencel is the brand name…for the fabric made from lyocell fiber.  It has become known for being an eco-friendly fabric because it claims to be biodegradable and renewable.  It is made from wood pulp from sustainable tree farms.  It’s […]

I am terrified of spiders, and I know I’m not the only one, so I want to share with you a homemade spider repellent.  I also wanted to share a not-so-scary picture of a spider. =) A few weeks ago, I brought my son’s mattress into my bedroom for a “sleepover”.  As we were curled up in bed reading stories, a SPIDER came crawling onto the bed!!  It was as terrible as you might imagine…screaming, jumping, pounding the spider, LOSING […]
