Homemade Ginger Sugar Body Scrub

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbs ground ginger powder
  • 2 tbs coarse sea salt

You can make smaller amounts, just make sure you double the amount of sugar to olive oil. I also made one with lavender oil instead of ginger. My legs love it!
Today was Apple's first pool experience. Needless to say, he spent the first few minutes trying to jump out and peeped for me to rescue him. Then something amazing happened, he realized how to use his webbed feet and zoomed across the pool like a rocket. He was pretty stoked after that.
Apple has easily doubled in size already. He's also responding well to his name, when I call him he cocks his head to the side, looks up at me, and shows a sly grin. I never imagined a duckling would have so much personality.

(I should really get out of the habit of calling it a boy, because it's too early to be sexed.)

A few mobile shots from our Easter weekend in Georgia/South Carolina. I'm still editing actual photographs, they'll be posted shortly.
Apparently, you can get in trouble for picking wildflowers from the side of the highway.
...but that didn't stop me from picking them.
We ate at Huey's on the River in Savannah, GA.
I had a cup of gumbo (the best I have ever had!), fried green tomato muffuleta, and sweet tea. K had a bowl of gumbo (her first time trying it, she loved it!) and good ol' chicken strips.
These dudes were singing gospel on River Street, we dropped some cash on them. They were nice folks.
Back on the road to South Carolina...
My cousin brought her new twin girls over my grandparents. They were adorable, but I was quite willing to hand them back. ;)
My family teaches good manners from birth. ;)
That's the five-year-old version of me in front, that's the clown that caused my lifelong coulrophobia behind me. Seriously.
Apple snuggling.
Elephants with black eyes?
This is Apple.
Apple likes to snuggle in my neck, eat worms, and follow me around the yard.
