Kitchen (but not cooking) fun
Wednesday I baked five pies; Thursday I made an entire Thanksgiving dinner. Friday we went out for lunch and ate leftovers the rest of the day, but I just couldn't keep out of the kitchen. In the evening, I whipped up some body wash, body scrub, and lotion from Little House Living.
And then, because the kids begged me, I made lip balm. Homemade is so much better; it seems that most of what you buy at the store makes your lips worse, not better. Red Chief requested peppermint and Tiger Lily wanted lavender, so I split the recipe into halves and made it in teacups, which were just the right size. Just a few tablespoons of lip balm filled up 19 containers!
