We don't get a lot of snow here, but when we do it's kind of a big deal. Yesterday, and last night especially, we had a storm system blow through that brought some serious winter weather. It started snowing at about 6:00 pm last night and it hasn't stopped for more than a few minutes at a time.
It makes for some pretty pictures, and some fun to play in too.
We have some mad snowman skills, I tell you what.
Onto other things, I found a recipe for orange vinegar to clean with on Pinterest, so I've been following everyone around making sure they don't throw out their orange peels. You put some peel into a mason jar, fill it with vinegar and let it sit for a couple weeks. Then you strain it and mix it with water in a spray bottle. More on all of that when it's done, but here it is now working away:
It's already turning orange and smelling like oranges. Apparently, the vinegar will leach out the orange oils and when you use the vinegar for cleaning you'll get the benefit of not only the scent but the oils as well.
I think it's a great idea for using up orange peels that would otherwise just get thrown out (or composted or dehydrated here lol). I'll keep you updated on this promising looking stuff!
