Olive Oil and other random thoughts...

Did you know that olive oil has other uses besides for meal preparation in the kitchen?  I found a list of 25 here.  

...and here's #26.  It's been a month since my surgery and I'm still peeling steri-strips off and then after the process of peeling comes the process of getting all the icky glue off my skin.  This morning I was convinced the icky glue was going to be a permanent fixture, however, I'm happy to report that soaking the glue with some olive oil did the trick.  I'm almost "icky glue free".  Just a bit of useful information in case anyone was looking for a way to remove icky glue from their body in a safe, non-toxic manner.  I can't take all the credit for this revelation friend Lauren suggested baby oil...I didn't have any on hand, so I used the olive oil...even better. 

And, moving on...
Some of you have inquired about how to leave a comment on the blog (I love comments...hint, hint...even if it's just to say hello).  You do not have to have a blog or belong to my site if you want to leave a comment.  Simply click comment and you will then see the screen below.  
Choose Name/URL and just type in your name. If you do have a website you'd like to be associated with, add that as your URL, but it is not required.

Thanks for all the positive feedback about my new "do".  You all sure know how to make a girl feel good. 

We're still unclear as to when chemo will be starting.  We're looking at the beginning of next week or the week after.  The anticipation of it is not a fun thing to deal with...UGH!

And a few random photos to go with the random post...

A great source of calamity lies in regret and anticipation; therefore a person is wise who thinks of the present alone, regardless of the past or future.

Two things: 1) That picture of Little Miss is unbelievable...those blue eyes! I hope you have enlarged that one., 2)Thank you for the olive oil ideas. I use olive oil exclusively because of the allergies. I've used it for so many things but I'm very interested in the Lip Balm recipe on that list. Most "lip" products have nut products and/or questionable flavorings in them (I haven't found one yet that doesn't). So I'm very excited to try this. Thank you, thank you!!!
