Yeah, who would think? I can't believe the coconut oil and baking soda works so well. There is no downside! I'll try that tooth cleaner. I need something for work.
New Cat is wonderful, I love him so much. It's funny how these things work. I'm feeling a bit guilty at neglecting my other cats, but they can't mix yet. New Cat is, both in appearance and temperament, like a combination of two cats I have had, long gone to cat heaven. It's not fair to make these judgments and comparisons, but the mind goes where it will sometimes. I love the smoky grey color with subtle striping and ticking, and the cream and peach underside. Fluffy tail and back legs. He is one of those cats that knows what he wants and goes straight for it. I admire that in both cats and people.
So, do you mix the coconut oil and baking soda to make a spreadable paste, or do you oil up and then throw some baking soda at yourself?
I put on the coconut oil and then dust the baking soda on. Coconut oil is taking over my life. I'm using it all over my body and inside too! My new hair stuff has coconut oil as a prominent ingredient also.
Siobhan, I googled your cat. He looks like a combo of a lynx and a mountain lion! so gorgeous! I wish I could have a cat, but i have a bird. Not a good combo!
I'm so enjoying your journal, its very inspiring! You give me lots of good ideas for things to cook. FYI, for the record, I think you should kick New Guy to the curb, he's not good enough for you!

the cat sounds awsome.
the guy, not so much. Better to get it over before he gets too attached. Like taking off a bandaid; quick and all in one go!

Have to say I agree............ last thing you want is to get attached to a guy who doesn't seem to have a future. He may be one of those lazy ass guys who floats from place to place on whatever couch he can sleep on.
Time to say "no thanks". There are LOTS of other really great guys out there who have something wonderful to offer. Get back on Match.com and see what you can find! :)
Kitty is pretty!!!!
I'm going to try that deoderant idea....... but I might do a paste so I have it all in one container. :) Thanks for the great tip!
Edit: Mixed up some - I'll try it tomorrow! :)
Yeah, you are all right about the guy. It's time to fish or cut bait and I know which it should be. He's not for me. I need to formulate a script and make the call. No, I'm not going to take the chicken way out and text him or email him.
OTOH New Gray Cat is wonderful. When I come home he is so excited to see me, like a dog. So affectionate and good natured. Good eater but not greedy. Loves to be groomed and is okay with nail clipping. Very clean. Purrs like a motorboat.
Just spent three hours in church! Good Friday. It is so refreshing to the soul to give oneself over to torment and misery and loss. Sometimes I feel church is too schmaltzy, too much of a social occasion. At least once a year we strip all of that away and face the reality that bad things happen, things we don't and can't understand. There is a retired Methodist paster (female) who always preaches a short sermon at the ecumenical service and I really enjoy her take on things. She never descends into schmaltz, yet makes things deeply personal. I am also a little amazed by her as she is almost 80 and was ordained as a minister long, long before such things were common.
Well, not much to report. Watched some TV, a rarity for me, but PBS had some good programs about religion and tolerance. Because of Good Friday, I am sure. Had asparagus and a hamburger patty for dinner. Some hot flashes during the night, but not as bad as before. Honestly, the chill that follows the hot flash is worse. I was awake for a time, during which Grey Cat insisted upon some lovin'. He is a cuddlebug. When I went back to sleep, I slept very well for the rest of the night. Woke up hungry, had some eggplant/beef/mushroom concoction. Must think about what I am going to eat tomorrow as the stores will be closed - Maine law. Going to swim now -
