It’s been HELL here for the past few weeks with non-stop noise daily for ten hours because the school is building a concrete bunker. They might call it a “multi-purpose room” but in my opinion, any structure that plans to dig 240 holes fifty feet down and is built entirely out of concrete—well, that’s a bunker.
The noise and dust has been so bad that we started making phone calls to complain. It turns out that the district didn’t get permits for the digging and they were given a stop work order. They have egregiously defied the stop work order and have continued to work despite being cited and fined every day. Finally, our city attorney got involved so it’s the city against the school superintendent, who’s newish to the job and making some VERY POOR LIFE CHOICES. Things aren’t looking good for him, and I anticipate the job eventually to be shut down for a long time in order to obtain proper permits, get the State inspectors here, test the soil and ground water, put up sound barriers, and secure the dirt. There is no excuse for their behavior. If we hadn’t complained about the noise, no one would have known they were operating illegally. Just call me Erin Brockovich!
Anyway, it’s quiet this morning. The birds are singing and it’s the perfect time to practice self-care from the ongoing stress.
I like to take whatever existing store bought mask (not the kind we wear to protect ourselves and others from Covid-19) I have and embellish it with my own ingredients.
This is a Kale + Niacin gel mask that’s the perfect consistency to DIY.
I got inspired by the ingredients of my yummy vegan smoothie recipe and decided to put the same ingredients on my face as I did inside my body.
Inner and outer beauty!
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 tbsp.organic spirulina
- 1tbsp. organic moringa powder
- 1 tbsp.organic wheat grass powder
- 1 tbsp. matcha green tea powder
- 1tsp. turmeric oil
- 3 or 4 tbsp. of any existing masks you might have (OR you don’t need to… just add 2 teaspoons water and 2 teaspoons coconut or olive oil.)
- Combine all ingredients
- Spread all over your freshly washed face either using fingers or a foundation brush.
- Leave on for 20 minutes.
- Wash with warm water and feel the difference in your skin.
- Moisturize immediately.
- I save any leftover mask in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
Have a wonderful self-care Saturday!
