Francie replied to Sarah W's discussion Anyone want to order Coconut Oil with me?
"They did not cook properly - they did not get tan AT ALL. It was like I cooked in a sunscreen or heat protectant. And the texture was weird, sorta uncooked, but of course if it didn't cook it would still be liquid."

Hope you can join us for the MNO on 2/3, or the monthly gathering on 2/18 or 2/22!

So glad you could join us on Wednesday. Hope to see you soon!

I could very well have been one of the welcoming people. We have moved so much and I know what it is like and it is so helpful to have folks welcome you to an area. I did four years ago - one lady even offered to drive by houses for me! Charlotte is a great place but not always easy to find stuff - some of the homeschool things are well hidden secrets. Do stop by if you get back early but enjoy the horse thing - I try not to be envious!

It was nice to meet you at Pat's. Are you planning to go to her house this Saturday for the fondue thing?

Hey, hope you can join us for the monthly holistic meeting on Wednesday, or the family potluck on the 25th!

Wow 3 horses! I'm happy to hear you wil get them soon your girls must be so Excited that they are coming. Skylar would love to see them. I don't know how log it would take to get her on one though she is very shy. I used to ride a friends wen I was young but never formal lessons. My cousin leases a horse down in Georgia andI have been thinking of taking her down there to get Skylar on her horse . We would love to visit when everything has settled. The kids love anyone who has animals. They have started asking if we can live on a farm since we took some field trips to farms last spring. Hopefully someday we can get some land and a few animals.

Hi! Great to see you too! These 2 horses actually belong to friends, my daughter just caught a funny picture of Dan biting Zen. We'll be boarding and training Dan soon. Hope he's gotten over his biting habit!

We have 3 horses, and we can probably put your daughter on one of them! They arrive in 2 days.

I love the horses are they both yours? My daughter loves horses but I've been avoiding lessons because of the cost invoved. We met at Pats house at the last lunch she had. Great to "see" you here.

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
