Hidden Art Friday

I have to admit, I don’t have much for you today. My days have been full of suncsreening kids, drying kids, making popsicles for kids, and reading to kids. I’m pretty sure that returning to real life this fall will be a shock.

My internet reading lately has consisted of silly things, like googling, “How soon will my baby be born?” and “Unplanned birth in the car.” Don’t worry–if it happens, I’m ready! I’m horribly behind in my blog reading, so behind that it’s a little intimidating to try to catch up. Maybe that will make good hospital reading after the baby’s born.

A few things I have found helpful this week: I made these ‘cookies’ for lunch one day, and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to individual cookie making. This was such an improvement. I also branched out and made my own bug spray. I hate conventional bug spray: the way it feels, the way it smells, the way it leaves you all sticky. Just gross. But out here, we are in desperate need of bug spray. Sitting on the deck for one hour in the afternoon leaves your ankles bitten to bits, and my little girls tend to pick those bites until they bleed. Bad news. So I tried this recipe for DIY bug spray, and I’m pleased to say that it has been very successful. Next on the list? Sunscreen!

    Which insect repellant recipe did you use?

      Hi Amanda, I used the essential oils insect repellent. I actually ended up using a few different oils, based on the recommendation of the the saleslady, but it’s the same basic idea. It smells great!
