(This is another that was very glittery, sparkly.)
I packed up all my Christmas stuff today, everything but the tree. Ty called me a scrooge, and hubby said he'd like to leave the tree up thru New Year's. That's fine. All of the other stuff was the bigger chore anyway. We'll keep turning our outside lights on thru New Year's too.
I keep forgetting to say that I started using the Nubian Heritage cocoa body wash. I'm not as wild about the scent as the person I got it from but I *love* the wash itself. Niiiiiiiiice. It's been almost three months since I've used body wash (vs. bar soap) and all that instant lather was like seeing a long lost friend. The feel of this particular soap is like being wrapped in one of those super soft fleece blankets. I've also started using the coconut-papaya lotion that I got with it on my feet-knees-elbows. Yes, I've given up on that greasy nasty Cherry Almond so-called body butter I'd gotten. In fact, I dumped it in the garbage today. It just kept becoming liquidy, no matter if I shook it up again or just left alone, no matter if I left it in the bathroom which becomes quite warm or in a cooler spot. And then I noticed it wasn't doing a thing for my feet. They were feeling absolutely horrible. My knees and elbows don't feel any better or worse, but my feet.....gah! So yeah, garbage for that one. But even in all of this, my lovely Bella's Birthday body butter is still feeling neglected. Sometimes I want to use it just to use it and smell it, not because I need it. Hmm, maybe the coco-pap lotion should be my standby and my Bella's Birthday should be my after-shower slather again. Yes, I think that's what I'll do.
Didn't go anywhere today so I still haven't done anything about making tarts. On the other hand, FedEx brought me some lovely fragrance oils today, some springtime scents for soap. When hubby came home this evening he said one guy who has used my soap loves the coffee mint and said "Don't stop making that one!" Since I only have one little bar of that left I guess tomorrow will have to be a soap day.
Go Vikings! Hubby got a new jersey for Christmas so tonight we're both wearing jerseys and screaming at the TV during this game. I've been coming and going throughout the game but I was just watching the last minute or so of the fourth quarter, watching them come back from what looked like a sure spanking to tie it up and head into overtime. Goooooooo Vikings!! (Commercials now or I wouldn't be typing this.)
Well poo. They lost.
