I wake up every morning happy to open my eyes.  And I go to sleep every night thankful to have our very own place.  There's so much sky.  I can see the clouds forever.  We love it here.

Yesterday I ordered some Lush products.  A woman in my class gave me the littlest bar of Lush soap as a gift.  It made my skin so soft that I decided to go to the website and order some.  I got carried away and spent $70.00.  Lush is located in Vancouver, Canada.  The products are handmade and biodegradable.  Everything in the ingredients I am able to pronounce.

King of Skin $13.95 Body Butter (Cocoa butter)
Smooth onto wet skin just out of the shower, towel off – and you’re left with royally soft skin.  Good for after you shave your legs.

It sounds nice and easy and faster than applying lotion all over.
Sultana of Soap $6.40 Reviews say it smells nice, lathers well and moisturizes.  I dunno.  We'll see.
Ro's Argan Body Conditioner $32.95  Scoops of cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, almond oil and Argan oils, and the fragrant scent of fresh rose petals, this is the most luxurious body softener that ever was (if we don't say so ourselves!). After washing up, slather yourself all over with this new invention. Rinse, pat dry and revel in supremely soft, rose-scented skin.

Reviews indicate a lot of people use it as a lotion because they want to use every bit and not see any go down the drain.  Supposed to be super moisturizing.

 Ultrabland (that's not a typo) $16.95 Non-irritating beeswax cleanser.

A hugely popular cult product, Ultrabland is a thick, rich emulsion of essential oils, honey and beeswax to take off any make up or residue that has built up on your face throughout the day. Unlike most make up removers, Ultrabland leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished, thanks to soothing rosewater and iris flower extract. Suitable for all skin types.

The "suitable for all skin types" is key.  I will try each thing one at a time to make sure I'm not allergic.  I told the lady who gave me the soap in my class that I'll give her a little bit of these products to try, since she turned me on to Lush products.  I hope they work well for me.
My Zumba class is going well and so I have extra funds for these things which I do not need.  I've been making $70 a night.  Apparently something terrible is going on with one of the other instructors in town.  I feel very badly for her and her family.  I haven't seen her but I hear she's put on weight and is using drugs and alcohol, and I know she's been kicked out of her church.  She is in terrible distress.  I don't know what's going on, but God does, and so  I pray for her when I drive by her house to work in the mornings.  In the meantime, the hardcore Zumba devotees from her class have been coming to mine.  They are a real sweet group of girls.  It really makes the class fun when there are so many people.

Tomorrow is Saturday.  My husband has to work noon to 9pm which I don't like.  I will do housework.  I'm...looking forward to it.  I am!
