Pin It

Another busy day dehydrating, housecleaning and baking. I have been dehydrating onions, onions and more onions. I use alot of onion flakes in my cooking and since we have about 200 onions from the garden, not to mention those given to us by our neighbor Dave, I decided it was the best thing to start with in my new machine.

Laundry, baking and grilling steaks for dinner took up the rest of my day along with a four-wheeler ride with Bob around the property. We like to do a weekly patrol around the fields to make sure everything is still as it should be. The deer have really been moving in lately so it should turn out to be a great hunting season.

With cooler temperatures now here and decreasing daylight, it got me thinking of the things I enjoy once winter rears it's ugly head. One of my favorites is making some time for myself and taking long, hot, soaking bubble baths which is how I came up with my giveaway.

We all need to take care of and pamper ourselves once in a while. So I am giving away a homemade jar of my bath salts. They are wonderful and the smell will remind you of Christmas. I am also including two 100% cotton homemade washcloths in a wonderful ecru color (the yarn is in the picture) that will be made just for the winner. If the winner would like a stripe down the center in a different color to match their bathroom decor they just have to let me know and I will make them that way. Yes, the washcloths will not be made until the winner is announced and has notified me with their decision. I also will include a jar of Raspberry Tart Body Butter to slather on once the soaking is complete.

If you would like a chance to win, please let me know in the comment section and I will add your name to the basket. The draw will be made on Monday, September 28th.
It is my way of making sure that one of my readers will have an opportunity to pamper themselves when the cooler weather hits.
Have a great evening with your loved ones. :)

  4. Bubble baths, or as I call them my "Calgon Moments", are my favorite way to relax and unwind. I do find them to feel more decadent in the winter and love using lavendar and candles to take me away.

  7. I'm interested in the giveaway! Nice to hear you're getting lots of use out of the dehydrator already - that's a lot of dried onions! I love soaking in a nice warm tub, and the Raspberry Tart Body Butter sounds like the perfect follow up to keep skin soft in colder weather!
