Today I went tanning first thing in the morning. I then did a bit of cleaning around the dining area so I could bring out my new Excalibur dehydrator! I am so excited to have this! I bought it for making fruit snacks and yogurt, Since fruit is not in season, I thought I would try my hand at the yogurt. So I sterilized my mason jars, heated up my raw milk to 110 degrees, and then put it a few teaspoons of organic greek yogurt. I then poured the milk mixture into the mason jars and set them in the dehydrator at 115 degrees for 12 hours. I cannot wait to see how it comes out! I was using the thermos method but my thermos was so difficult to clean along with the straining of the yogurt. I now can put a piece of cheesecloth over the opening of the jar and drain the whey out that way...no extra dishes to clean. We are on a mission to really start eating even better. Lots of probiotic rich foods are in our future. Hubby and I plan to learn how to make something new every few weeks. Next on my list is kombucha. :)
So here is a pic from yesterday...during my tiny flare my face was barely affected, if at all. My hair is growing like a weed! I plan to get myself into a spa soon...hair, nails, waxing, massage, the works!! I plan to pamper myself after this year of hell. Sounds selfish, I know, but I do this only once a year if that....and only in the last few years. I am not one to spend money on myself. After this spring, life is going to get REALLY busy! When we move to our 68 acres, we plan on starting a homestead....big garden, chickens, cows, you name it! We are also getting a 2nd dog. We will be out in the mountains/hills of KY where wild life roam. The kids will need a bit of protection when out playing or exploring. So in a few weeks we will be adding a puppy to our family. Boy oh boy....lots of work ahead!!! :)
I will be taking more close ups of various areas after these next few days I have to work. But notice the neck? Looking and feeling great!!
