Re: argghhh! i cant take it anymore!

I don't know how your man reacts, but I find if I let him sit there are start cleaning around him he begins to feel REALLY uncomfortable. He can't handle being a lazy curse word while I putter around the house straightening up. Lucky me it's just three of us, one of which being a housemate that pays...

Re: Anyone here hunt?

My fiancee hunts. I can't do it. I'm a wussy little girl like that. I do, however, shoot. Since he has a large farm from his family up north about three hours, we visit now and again and he gets to hunt. Mostly he is set by his parents to kill feral dogs that like to eat the goats or chickens, but o...

Re: Secret Santa

Sorry to post a second reply but I noticed just now all this was done manually. There's another site called elfster.com that does it automatically, which also makes it so that one person doesn't have everyone's addresses (for those who are a bit untrusting) just the person who got you as their draw....

Re: Wood Ash

Can't soap be made from ash and fat? I've never made it but with my partner and I camping all the time on his parents farm (750 acres, really, you can get lost in there!) and the fact that, well, about 20 cows there are slaughtered a year, we have plenty of fat - it was something I was considering. ...

Re: Favourite essential oil

For romantic times with my partner, I chose a blend of lavender and ylangylang with just a hint of sandalwood... it goes great in shared bubble baths with some wine (and a beer for the boy). Or as a burner during a candlelit dinner. For my laundry, I make my own soaps with no smell so I drop some ro...

Hello from Australia! :)

Hello! My name is, surprisingly, Elizabeth, and I live in the suburbs of Australia. I am a 23 year old model and nutrition student. Studying nutrition has made me even more headstrong about the quality of my foods. I was before, but now that I actually DO know what's in food, my horrifications have ...
