LOL, love your quote for wednesday! smile

as for the dry skin, i have that problem too, especially in winter, and a bit worse each year, when it reaches the eczema stage where it flakes and scabs over, so so itchy. thus far i think either the eucerin or pure shea butter seem best and if i'm good about it, can keep the eczema under control for now. while pure shea can be a little pricy, it goes a long long way so really very affordable overall. bought a rather expensive cream called "seven cream" from my naturopath's office, a bunch of ingredients with water then shea butter as the number one and two ingredients, but not finding it any better than the eucerin or pure shea. i also take a bath in a mixture of colloidal oatmeal and grape seed oil (i get the pure oil in the cooking aisle of the health food store, its actually cheaper there and unscented too, a plus i think, i can always add my own essential oils that i'm not allergic to.)

me, finally got my butt outside for a walk tonight, didn't make it til after dark, but a good safe little cul-de-sac to walk in, weather pretty good, cold, but no wind, so easy to be warm if bundled up well. that loosened my neck / shoulder up again.
