Instead of Soap, I Give you Kale

IMG_9117
I was going to write about soap today. Not necessarily give a tutorial, but tell you my experiences with it after making 3 different batches. But you know, this week has been a rough parenting week. Nothing in particular happened, just the adjustment of figuring out how to function with our growing family. I don’t think that’s talked about enough in blog land…how tricky parenting can be. I think most people write about the successes, which is just fine, but dang, it can be hard sometimes!

Most of the lotions and potions I make have very few ingredients and take 5 minutes or less to make for a reason. I don’t have too much time to fuss over things, I like them to be simple. Soap making isn’t simple and isn’t kid friendly so it feels only appropriate that on a week like this, that I skip the soap making talk. We’ll save that maybe for the new year. Instead here is a picture of kale in our garden. This was on Tuesday morning, a very cold morning. This morning it’s covered in rain drops.

Have a good weekend!

    I love your site. Life can be crazy, we all know that!

    PS: Instead is spelled incorrectly in your title…just in case you want to fix it.

  3. ah, this reminds me I’ve got a mess of kale in the fridge that needs cooking! thx

  4. Your week sounds hectic! Sorry about that. I love the notion of easy soap making. I’ve been meaning to learn how to make soap and lotions.

  5. Kale is like a family, tough, attractive, but not always pretty.
    Resilient, but not to everyone’s taste. And incredibly good for you, but not always the easiest to eat/adsorb! Best of luck, I am sure you will produce a wonderful crop:)

  6. We planted dinosaur kale last week and then the raccoons had a party in our yard and pulled it all up – we got back from a week at the Schoolhouse and – no kale. None. Zip. We’ll try again…

    Simple…that is how I like it as well!! If we mom’s could just get enough sleep…maybe then it would be easier!
