Interestingly enough, the start and end of my working stay-at-home vacation were very similar- cold, wet, and cold. But the in-between days were lovely! I still have several hours to go in my final day, and I still have plans for those hours- one being to transplant my tomato seedlings, thanks to a 10 Tomato Transplant Tips article from the Hudson Valley Seed Library that convinced me this weather is not just made for tea and movies, but for reducing transplant shock, also! Where did I put those red plaid rain boots?
Lots did get done these last several days, but not as much as I hoped and planned. A big lesson to come out of this is that This Girl Needs Discipline! Most of what I fell behind on were writing/planning/typing tasks, and I specifically had a hard time finding that old grindstone for my nose. But, now that I see that SO VERY clearly, there's hope.
I did update my website a little, and added new parts like detailed instructions about using my No Shampoo hair cleaner and my Smooth face scrub and mask. I also posted, thereby announcing, a Project Detox:Summer Scrub program! Come detox with me and be vibrant this summer.
So, in all, the Staycation experiment was a success and I look forward to doing it again. One of the biggest tasks I took on was decanting probably18-20 alcohol and vinegar tinctures and infused oils that I've had sitting around for, oh, a while. All right, some of them for several YEARS. But what a shelf life! It really took having several days off to organize and tidy my workshop and to enjoy it like that, before I suddenly got motivated to muck it all up again. So now I have a regular apothecary for my own use, and a shelf full of empty jars waiting for new potions and concoctions.
