It really is :/ They say that waking up is a painful process. Your whole world as you know it is shattered. Everything you've ever learned, experienced and seen on TV, you question because nothing is as it seems. But despite that, it's worth it. Being one is awakened is a glorious thing. A thing that can change your world view in positive ways that may contribute to the betterment of society. Don't be a sheep, because then you're just being by esmeralda

Restoring teak furniture  What You Need:  Rubber Gloves  Two Brushes  Medium Grit Sandpaper  Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool  TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water  Teak Oil  Polyurethane    Instructions:    Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance.    Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible.    Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores.    Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood.    Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture.    Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood.      MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY:  How To Care For Teak Furniture by babyblu3

In a bowl, you will want to add one teaspoon of glue, three drops of food coloring and 1 1/2 teaspoons of water ..

I apologize! I said I would post a recipe yesterday BUT I had no power  starting Friday night through Saturday night so that made things kind of  difficult... Hopefully these granola bars can make up for my tardiness!  When I was a kid, I used to inhale those Quaker Chewy Granola Bars. My mom  would always have to stop me before I ate the whole box… I mean, they are  pretty much like “healthy” candy bars or at least they used to be. So once  I got started eating them, it was game over for those babies. I was an  all-or-nothing type of kid when it came to eating. I’d either eat  everything in the pantry (i.e., every piece of chocolate I could find) or  refuse to eat for days, especially when they tried to feed me squash (which  I surprisingly now LOVE). Unfortunately, this trait has kind of stayed with  me into my adult life, which is why I’m glad these granola bars are not  like candy bars! I can eat as many as I want! Though, I’m not going to lie…  The second bar I ate after making these may or may not have been smothered  in peanut butter with a few dark chocolate chips sprinkled on top (...  hello candy granola bar). I highly recommend trying that if you make these…  Normally, one would use all oats for the base ingredient when making  granola bars. However, I found that substituting some crushed rice chex  cereal for oats was fantastic, not only for texture but calories too! These  bars are low calorie and dairy free. I love swapping out butter for  unsweetened applesauce when baking! Applesauce is a great substitute for  butter and/or oils. Same goes for bananas (I have a recipe for you next  week demonstrating this). Yay for healthy snacks!  Rice Chex Granola Bars printable recipe  Yield: 16 granola bars  Calories: 95 calories per bar  Total Time: about 5 hours (prep time only 15 minutes)    Ingredients:  - 4 cups rice chex cereal, crushed (this should be about 2 cups crushed)  - 2 cups quick oats  - 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce  - 1 tsp vanilla extract  - 3 tbsp raw honey  - 2 tbsp PB2 + 1 tbsp water (or 2 tbsp normal creamy peanut butter - this  will add extra calories)  - optional: brown sugar (for sprinkling - I used about one tbsp)    Directions:  1. Crush rice chex cereal in a large bowl using your hands until only small  pieces remain. It’s okay if a few larger pieces remain but you want the  bulk of it to be small pieces.  2. Add oats to the bowl with crushed rice chex and stir to combine.  3. Prepare peanut butter by mixing PB2 with water in a small bowl until  creamy (skip this step if using normal peanut butter).  4. Combine applesauce, vanilla, honey and peanut butter in a medium  saucepan. Cook over low heat until ingredients are melted together and  creamy/gooey, about 5-10 minutes.  5. Pour warm gooey applesauce mixture from step 4 over the chex oat mixture  and stir until dry ingredients are completely intertwined with wet  ingredients (well combined).  6. Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Pour mixture from step 5  into the dish and smooth out using a spatula until mixture completely fills  the dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top then push it into the bars  using your fingertips. Refrigerate for about 5 hours to allow granola bars  to harden.  7. Once hardened, remove from fridge, slice into 16 bars and enjoy!  Note: I stored my granola bars in the fridge. I recommend doing the same!  Mine stayed fresh for about one week.  The recipe is very simple and you can definitely add your own flare to it  like dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc... The possibilities are  endless! I wanted to start with a bare minimum granola bar so I can always  add whatever I’m craving that day to it. What you would add to make these  granola bars better?! Tell me your thoughts!
