Really, the most important update is that it’s FOUR Sundays till the Daytona 500.
So what does Barb do on a snowy Sunday at home with the grandkids? We watch Inside Out while making Salad-in-a-Jars!

The idea of layering is that your dressings go first, then the solid veggies/protein. This way your more tender ingredients don’t wilt. Then add the lighter things, top with greens and seal. Here are the finished products:
I also needed a new batch of toothpaste. I began making my own a few years back. My teeth are very sensitive, and spending $5 on a tube just for me was silly. This recipe seems to work well for me. This time around I added a drop of Clove Bud oil since my bridge is giving me a few issues. #oldladyissues
I got all of this done before 10:30 AM. Now, the grands are playing with Lincoln Logs while I blog. #lifeisgood
I also made myself an essential oil sinus inhaler to combat this pesky scratchy throat. More about inhalers in another post. For now, signing off. Till next time, Be Blessed!
