Life lately.

Besides being busy lately (as usual of course!) with everyday life, I've been working on other things. Things like re-doing the living room, Roy's room and our room. It's a slow process as I search out and look for items I like for the different areas and try to find that perfect little piece to complete a room. It takes time but I know I'll be so much happier if I'm sure, and I mean really sure I'll like something before I buy it. :-) I did take before pictures but since I'm not rushing in re-decorating it will probably be a while before I post any.

Other than that I've been trying to keep the house clean with the occasional help from my wonderful Mum and sisters (Family is awesome to have around. ;-P) and working on making sure I cook more healthy meals. Definitely going to have to get a menu plan worked out sometime soon.

Little man is sick right now. It's a rather nasty cold/flu that is going around and so he's into lots of cuddles and drinking lots of goats milk. Poor little guy! He did sleep really well last night which was surprising since his nose was stuffy.  Here's to hoping he gets better really soon!

I made Cheesecake Caramel Pumpkin Cups the other day and they were excellent with a cup of tea (or coffee! :-) I plan on making them again soon, especially since I now have some leftover pumpkin that just has to be used up! ;-) Oh and I didn't make them in a mini muffin tin, well, I didn't have one so I had to use my regular sized tin. It was such a bummer!:-D

Well, I'm off to make lunch or should I say, re-heat the leftovers from last night for lunch. (It's a wonderful garlic cheese sauce (recipe from sis, T.W) over noodles so it'll be yummy!:-)

A Resource I Love!

If you are like me and try to go the more natural route when it comes to buying anything from Shampoo to makeup to baby wash, then you'll love this website. I found it on another blog and since then I've been going through it searching to find out what exactly the products in my bathroom cupboards have in them. Its nice that it rates them from 0-10 with 10 being the worst for your body. A very nice website for reference if you want to be more careful what you use everyday on your skin, in your mouth,...etc...,!

Keep in mind that I don't think one should go all out and only buy products that are rated 0 or should throw away everything and start fresh but it does give one a good place to refer to if you are concerned or curious about what you use.

Anyways, I've enjoyed searching the website and its been a nice resource for me and hopefully it can be for others.
