hey ya’ll!

so not much going on … been doing my thing… but this time i cleaned too so its all good.

anyway i attempted to make the yogurt again… 3 times and failed miserably all 3 times… i don’t know what i’m doing wrong. well the 2nd attempt wasn’t my fault. my husband knocked my crockpot off the counter… don’t ask. i was pissed but didn’t show it.   no point in getting mad over people not giving a shit (sorry… i usually don’t curse over here but if you read my main blog you know i have a potty mouth) about what you’re trying to do and being careless about it in the process.  ANYWAY… this is where i come to relax so we are not gonna talk about HIM!

so i have wasted a lot of milk… i don’t know if i will try again for a minute… but i did try my hand at some monkey bread!  it was fabulous. only thing i would do different next time is make more glaze or a different kind. every recipe that i found used refrigerated biscuits but 1. so that is the one i used because i don’t really care for biscuits.  it was so good. i was very surprised. i bought one from the store a few years back and it was horrible! i’ll have to find that recipe and link it for those who want to try it.

*i linked it*

i also made my famous speckled butter beans in the slow cooker.  i love these things. i make them every week. hubby loves them too…  i used to make them for myself and not share but since i’m trying to be peaceful so i share.

what eles… oh i made some hair cream out of shea butter, aloe butter, coconut oil, vitamin E, and i think that is it…  i but some chocolate and coconut fragrance oil in it… why did i do that? i don’t like the smell but the hair butter is awesome!  i’ll have to whip up some more and remember what i but in it but fragrance it with something eles… this will be used on the kids!

i made some balls for the puppies… oh yeah i got more puppies… i will  be so happy when they are gone! i’m getting rid of the other 2 adults this week. i no longer like dogs. i will be keeping Troy… my first one.   she will be the only pet we have once all the puppies are gone. we have gone through snakes, fish, turtles, birds. rabbits… enough already.  i guess its because i didn’t really have pets growing up.  but i’m done. i might get some more fish but i think i’m done for a while.

here i go again!

i made yogurt! i made it following Rhonda’s recipe.  if ya’ll haven’t ya’ll should check out her site!  a lot of good information!!  love her site!  it wasn’t bitter or tart at all… it was actually sweet.  so much better than store bought.

now that i have mixed it up and added the strawberries it is more like the drinkable yogurt… i like it better that way anyway!  hubby took some and the kids wanted some for their lunch but i wanted to see if it thickens up a little before i let them take it… i didn’t really make it for everybody… i made it for me!!

i also made soap… ( this was also Rhonda’s recipe but with a little modification cause i didn’t have any rice bran oil. ) it was very different and i was a little nervous and i wasn’t sure how it would turn out.  but i think its good so far.  it has to cure for a few weeks.  i am going to try and make some laundry detergent today… but i have to get something to put it in.  i made a hair lotion for my curly top below. hopefully it will eliminate some of the frizz. i used sunflower oil and aloe vera get… i just put them together because the both promote moisture… we shall see!  i wet her hair and put it on last night then  braided her hair up. but she is not feeling well so i doubt she lets me play in her hair!

that is all… for now!

ME! its getting so long… i need to figure out what to do with
this is just a short post.  i wanna try making some soap today and as i sit here ant the computer… i’m trying to sike myself ip to do it… i’m such a punk.  i thought today would be a good day because i’m slow cookin a pork shoulder so my kitchen is free… i don’t kno

w. but anyway…

i cut hair on friday… i cut about an inch and layered  Ayanna’s she really needed it. her ends were split far and i had never had the nerve to cut it myself but it was getting ridiculous to comb and i just went for it.   2/3 of an inch off Aidan and about an inch off mine… it is so hard to cut curly hair… oh well i get it when i go to cosmetology school next fall.

whew!

i keep adding projects and not finishing anything… well thats not totally true.  i finished a quilt (no pictures of the whole thing yet.)… not the binding.  plan on that tonight.  i just hate binding.  i finished a baby hat and booties.  all of these are for a fellow blogger who is due any day… i know i’m so late!!!

too cute.

hat and booties are done in Caron Simply Soft in Rose and some other stuff i had in my stash… still have to remember to either document my yarns or save the label!  both were quick knits and i enjoyed both!  not much else to say about them~

i finished that fugly basket… too shamed to show it. 😉

i started a blanket and a quilt for my new Nephew who is due to make an appearance Monday… i think… not totally sure cause i try not to get involved in my Twin’s life cause she crazy.  but this is my first and only nephew so i’m excited.  wish i could really be excited and his mama not take advantage but i know she will so i must keep my excitement to myself… for now. 😦  i will take more pictures tonight.
