Getting our groove on

We have a new addition to our family. And before you start thinking … is it a new cow or maybe a dog? Nope nothing like that. We have a new exercise equipment that has joined our family. Our treadmill has completely died this winter and with all the cookies and caramel popcorn that we eat, well I’ll just say that it’s a good thing that we replaced it. Daryl picked up an elliptical after work tonight and both him and Kyle worked quite a while on putting it together. I was glad it was them because I heard them say ‘OK, now onto the third step’ and this was after they spent some time already on it. Daryl said it was just a workout putting it together! As you can tell they were working on it in our laundry/soap room. DSCN8542But I’ll be interested in how it’s going to work. I went on one once and lasted about 3 minutes. My arms were so sore and my legs were about to die. So I’m guessing it’ll be a good thing for me this winter!

While they were working on that, I took some soap out of the mold that I had made the other day. It has a lot of soft oils in it that it needs to sit a little longer than other soaps that I have made. It smells pretty good and I’m going to let it set for a couple more days before I cut it into bars. To say that I knew what I was doing when I made it would not have any truth to it at all! Holy cow I had a mess!! It was one of those times that I had started something and it was too late to turn back. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. But I would like to try it again and give it another shot because I know that I can do better. I’m not sure what I’ll call it, but what I’m thinking is ‘Not for the faint of heart’ 🙂DSCN8540

And the photo of the night is that of the dogs. They were pretty cold so I felt bad for them. They usually don’t move or make a sound when they are in the house and it works well for them. We kinda forget about them.DSCN8544
