We vacuumed our dog…

Not normal, I know.  However, we have a Australian Cattledog (Blue Heeler) who blows her fur twice a year.  Meaning, her furs falls out in clumps for about 2-4 weeks 2 times a year.  Love it!  So, my dh held her while me and my Kenmore went to work on her.  She wasn’t happy about the situation, but she eventually processed it in her pea brain as quality time with her dad and gave in.  I really think it helped.  Koal (our rescued mutt) doesn’t get this aggressive treatment.  He is a timid dog and vacuuming him would only cause him to shed more fur due to stress (he’s our special child).  I vacuumed the room the event took place, closed the door, and hung an imaginary “No Dogs Allowed” sign on the door.  Every room in the house needs vacuumed and given a sign, so eventually the dogs will have nowhere to go.~Smile

PETA will probably be knocking down our door this evening!  ~Eye roll

Question, does anyone use Watkins products or have any opinions on them?  I want Pure Vanilla and a few other things, and they came up in my search.  Also, is Mountain Rose Herbs a good place to buy coconut oil?  We love, love, love it in our kefir smoothies!

Our Kefir Smoothie Recipe:

2 cups Kefir

1 Banana

1-2 c. frozen fruit (we have used mulberries, currants, strawberries, and soon will be trying boysenberries)

Approximately 6 ice cubes

1/4 t. Stevia

1 T. Virgin Coconut Oil

Blend and enjoy!

Have a great Wednesday!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
