Lily is helping me tonight. She is sitting in my arms chattering away. She and her daddy did good today, I missed them but happily they did good with me away working. We met up between cleans so I could nurse Lily and then they were gone again. It was a busy day, when mom and I finished working we picked up Lily and headed to town to get a few things. Lily made friends with a few people, it is so hard to resist her smile.
Finally at about 7 she decided that she wanted some mommy time, which was good for my heart. Even better was she was over that soon enough and was happy playing with her new toys, or hanging out with either her daddy or grandma as well. Now she’d be happy with her daddy but I would rather have her in my lap, as difficult as it makes it to type she is such fun and working for 8 hours without her or her daddy around is a bummer.
It is ridiculously hot here right now, making for uncomfortable days and longed for cool evenings. Thankfully my body seems to be fine with the work and I have not lost my touch from when I cleaned with my dear friend out west. My mom has a bunch of really great clients with some beautiful houses and properties. It is nice getting to ‘window shop’ for designs, we get to see what works, what is easy to maintain and what functions well. It is going to be so much fun pretending to build and rebuild dream houses with the various parts of the houses we clean.
Loving homeopathics as always. Yesterday Denis got stung by a wasp and we used Apis and immediately the sting was gone. I intend to make a list of remedies for Denis to have on hand for Lily and him while I am away. Right now they need to make sure they don’t get heat stroke, sunburns or insect bites. I found a great recipe for natural sunscreen which was one of the shops mom and I did not make it to tonight before they closed. I will share the recipe with you now but I have not yet tried it myself so I don’t know how it feels on the skin.
Homemade Natural Sunscreen (Modified from Earth Remedy.org to Healthy Holistic Living.com to here)
- 1/2 cup of 100% pure aloe (preferably organic) – it should be globby, like it came fresh out of the plant.
- 20 drops carrot seed oil OR raspberry seed oil – (raspberry seed oil has a higher SPF if that is what you are looking for)
- 5 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 capsules of Vitamin E oil (break open the capsules) or hemp seed oil (2 tbsp)
- 5 drops of Lavender oil
- 1 tbsp avocado oil which helps increase the sun protection factor (SPF)
