Happy 1st Day of July!!!! Happy Canada Day!!!!
On today, I also had a first. I made my first whipped shea butter. Woot! Woot! I've been wanting to try it for quite some time, had the basic ingredients, but never gave it a shot. No, I'm not trying to delve into yet another art form, but self-sufficiency has its perks. I got the basic recipe from here. I only used raw unrefined shea butter, organic virgin coconut oil, cornstarch, and a sample vial of Caribbean Coconut Oil I had on hand. I figured it couldn't hurt. The next time I may cut back on some of the coconut oil. Well, here's to new things. I can't wait to try it in my hair (which I'm getting ready to trim, BTW)!!!
* I will return to my regularly scheduled posts on the Ohio trip, but I couldn't let this day escape.
** Does it make me a dork if I sing the Canadian National Anthem in the house, like rather frequently? I even have the sheet music. It's such a cool anthem and yet I never have a real reason to sing it...being American and all.
