I've spent some very happy hours recently reading new blogs that I've browsed across recently. The one I found today is the Herbwife's Kitchen. She's got some very interesting stuff on her blog! For instance, there's the recipe for a yogurt & green tea face scrub or there's the flaxseed hair gel. I don't use gel, but some of my family does. Too bad I've already got presents for everyone! I started thinking about homemade gifts a little too late this season. It's probably just as well, because with being sick & everything else that's been going on, I'm behind on the stuff that I was already making. But maybe next year I'll try the completely homemade Christmas.
I also visited several craft blogs - one was Sew Green, where I ran across the idea of the 100 Mile Diet. That one's not a blog, but it is interesting. They decided one day to only eat food that was grown within 100 miles of their home. Wow. I'm thinking that a little bit of that would be nice, but I may ease into it a little more than what it sounds like they did! I don't want to eat that many potatoes! I also checked out By Sun and Candlelight. Dawn's blog is a lot of fun to read! I got a peek into the fun things she's doing with her boys for the Christmas season, and a look at a variant on the Advent calendar that I'd like to try next year or the year after - when Monkey's old enough to actually care.
Fish in My Hair is just a good ROFLOL sort of blog! Check her out - she's been telling about their computer trouble and it's hilarious!! May I someday learn to have that much of a sense of humor! (Not that my husband would take 3 weeks & 3 external hard drives & a new computer to back up i-Tunes, or ever wish to be the Grand Poobah System Administrator. He's cool that way.)
