Some Ideas To Pass The Time At Home….

Wow, so much has changed all around us since Friday. We are self quarantining over here in an effort to do our part to stop the spread. It is certainly very sad and we are trying to focus on the positive and keep all those affected in our prayers. I have completed some very welcome distractions for you while you are homebound. I know it is hard to turn your attention towards something other than the news…I hope this helps a little!!!!

Here are some museums that are offering virtual tours:

A really great up to the minute paper to read with interesting pop culture stories is The Daily Mail www.dailymail.com. You can lose yourself for a while reading along and they have great royal recaps too!!!!

I love shopping at flea markets. There are a bunch of Instagram sites that hold online flea market/antique sales. Here are some of my favorites!!

How about making a scrub for tired skin (adapted from Allure.com):

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil

This scrub will leave your face dewey , calm and refreshed (just what we need right now). The sugar and lemon help to exfoliate dead skin cells and the olive oil helps to restore your skin to a healthier and fresher place!

You are going to LOVE this 60-second Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug recipe! (adapted from purewow.com)

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

1 egg

¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

⅓ cup all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

2 tablespoons chocolate chips

1. In a large mug, melt the butter in the microwave, about 15 to 30 seconds. Add in the sugar as well as the light brown sugar and stir to combine. Next, add the egg and vanilla extract, and then whisk together. 

2. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the mug; stir to combine. Continue by stirring in the chocolate chips.

3. Put the mug in the microwave and heat for about 1 to 2 minutes until cooked. Another way to check is to insert a toothpick into the center and make sure it comes out clean. Once cooked throughout, serve immediately and enjoy.
