April –continuation of the overhaul

New Roof


March Madness

Definitely not basketball, but it felt like a sporting event!

Massive purge of my closet going on here.

Before– (winter shoes not shown)

Removed from closet– (plus a milk crate of shoes)

After–And now I actually have a closet of coordinating clothes, probably for the first time since I outgrew Granimals!

These are just my warm weather clothes.  I put 7 long sleeve shirts, 3 sweaters, winter boots, and my coats in a single tote!

Base colors: navy and tan.  Accent colors: brick red, rust, green, and teal. (A few tshirts, slacks, and a pair of jeans were in the wash.)  Also, I only kept the scarf on the left.  It’s a much better size for a petite person.

What a mess. . .



Usually I am a salt stone kind of girl, but as summer approaches I’ve been looking for a good deodorant.  I had pretty high standards and this one met them all (with the exceptions of being local and no plastic packaging) .

It is smooth.  It smells wonderful, but not at all overpowering.  It’s been tested on a couple of days in the upper 70s when I had errands to run.

So far, I love it.

making ghee

$14 for 14 oz when I buy it at Meijer.

$7 for 22 oz when made at home.  It was surprisingly easy, quick, and not at all messy.

Total win!
