Last week's weather took us from summer to winter and back again.
We had sunshine, 80 degrees, blustery wind, rain, snow, lows in
the 20's...a bit of everything. One day we would keep cozy by the
woodstove, another day would find us out in short sleeves
working in the yard and garden.
I had a sudden craving for Swedish visiting cake,
which I haven't made in a long while, for teatime.
I think it may have had something to do with watching
and the fact that someone is always serving tea with cake,
biscuits, or cookies in each episode.
I also made some lotion bars. I've been wanting to try
these and finally got around to making them. They're
very simple and I found the recipe here.
I used a combination of shea butter and cocoa butter,
with the beeswax and olive oil.
My lotion bars don't glide on as I thought they would,
but seem a bit tacky/sticky. Maybe it's the shea butter
or my beeswax--not really sure, but I do still like
them and the fact that they don't leave any oiliness
on my skin.
I also made up an anti-aging serum, which I found
This smells wonderful with geranium and lavender and
leaves my face feeling soft...
I am also counting on it's anti-aging properties! :)
Hope your weekend was good.
