Yes, in case you didn't get my "drift" in the title, it is snowing! It is beautiful outside. I would go outside and play but it is cold. And I don't like to be cold. For some reason, this cold snowy day has made me want to do some cleaning and organizing. I fought the urge first thing this morning, but have succumbed. I like to say that when that rarely occurring urge hits me, I better take it. I was going to wait to take a bath till later this afternoon after I finish but decided that probably was not a good idea. If the power goes out, the house comes to a standstill, including the well pump. Of course, that can be remedied by hooking up the generator (and will have to be done!) but I don't want to have to worry about showering when I am operating heavy equipment! Did you get the "drift" of that?

As I was showering, I decided that I needed to inform all my friends and family that read this of something fabulous that I have discovered! Wintertime is always a dry skin time. And it is even more of a problem up here. Johnson's Baby Oil Gel is the answer! You use it in the shower after you have bathed and shampooed. Put some in your palm, coat both hands and put on your arms and elbows. Then put more in your palm, coat both hands and rub on your legs and feet. The best part of it is that you will notice your hands are always moisturized and you aren't getting hang nails! The cuticles are happy! I forgot to add that when you dry off, do not rub your skin, gently blot and dry it. Let me know if you try it and what you think. Your welcome.

I will be back later today for a new update. I think I hear the snow plow....Gotta go! Tootles!

I'll have to try that for my dry skin, too! And if I can get rid of hangnails in the process than I will be doubly happy! Thanks for sharing that great tip!

You should try putting a little motor oil on your dry skin. It works great! From my experience, 20w-50 works the best. Plus, in the summertime, it helps keep the bugs away.
