1. I decided to make liquid hand soap myself. I have found pretty much one soap I’m not allergic to and a half a litre bottle of it costs almost 5 euro's, while a bar of the stuff is about 1 euro. I prefer liquid, it just feels more hygienic to me. Jake joked once that I’m the kind of person who washes the soap before washing their hands with it and I looked at him like he was crazy. Of course, I’d wash the soap first. Anyway, I used this recipe. It called for 1 cup of water per every ounce of soap. My bar was little under 4 ounces, so I went with 4 cups of water, and worried it might be too much. Nope. I could have lifted it out of the kettle with a fork. I reheated and added water, several times, and in the end I finally managed to make it actually liquid after using a total of 10 cups of water. I don’t know if that bar was some kind of super soap, but it sure made a lot of soap. I added a few drops of grapefruit essential oil to make it smell nice.
2. Jake got the new Castlevania game and we spent most of the time on the couch, he playing and I crocheting.
3. Some healthy foods again this week: two pizzas, a whole cake, chocolate, hotdogs, pastries and such. Good thing I’m flossing or I’d die from cavities! Now, I’ll only die from obesity and heart decease.
4. So, this probably doesn’t make sense unless you are Finnish, but I’m going to tell it anyway. I’m from central Finland and Jake is from the northern coast. This results in some differences on dialect, most notable of which (for us) is that when something is for example “really good”, I say “sika hyvä” “pig good” and Jake says “yli hyvä” “over good”. Jake thinks I should leave pigs out of things, and I feel “yli hyvä” sounds like something is too good or overly good, in a sense of “too much of a good thing”. Anyway, Jake was watching a documentary about Teemu Selänne, probably the most famous Finnish hockey player of all time, and in it Teemu said “sika hyvää kahvia” “pig good coffee”! So thank you, Teemu Selänne, for making my boyfriend admit that “sika hyvä” might be a valid expression!
