Clean, Green & Frugal

I looked out my kitchen window the other morning and what did I see? Daffodil bulbs were poking up through the garden bed. We're only half way through winter, but there they were! Daffodils are something we all enjoy at our place ~ they remind us of Dh's mother, who passed away 9 years ago now. They were her favourite flower and we were very excited to discover the previous owners of this house had planted them right where we would see them every day from the kitchen & meals area of our home. Apparently spring it on its way already.

On the clean and frugal subject, I am trying something at the moment. No hair conditioner. I think I've reacted to the conditioner I bought last time ~ I'm all itchy only in the area where I put the conditioner. And no, it's not lice!!!! I was chatting with a friend yesterday and she mentioned she never uses conditioner. Now there was a light bulb moment for me. I must say, so far, I can't tell the difference, but my hair is only drying after being washed so time will tell. If I really can't tell one way or the other I will abandon the conditioner completely. I'm not abandoning the hair straightener though LOL.

Hi Tracy,

The daffodils up here are really interesting... I just noted a couple in bloom in my garden last weekend, along with some other deciduous plants seeming to be starting to mature buds.

I am probably going to get slapped over the wrist for doing so but at this point I am seriously considering sowing my tomato seeds in August just in case we get another freakily early spring like last year.

Kind Regards

I use a shampoo bar to wash my hair then follow up with a mixture of 50% water & 50% apple cider vinegar. You can add some rosemary or tea tree oil to it also. This helps my scalp and flakes. I just put it in a sprayer and spray it on my haor after i wash it. NO need top rinse.

My daffodils are blooming already and we live in an area which has a lot of frost and snow some years. It is just another indication that something isn't right with the climate I think.

I think so too Tracy. Kate from Our Red House just posted pictures of her daffodils.

I betcha mine are wondering what on earth they were thinking, popping up early, this morning with the frost that was around!
