I am so glad Valentine's week is over. We worked many long hard hours. I am always amazed at the amount of money people spend on their loved ones for Valentine's Day. Mr. C. and I have always skipped this celebration as far as buying flowers and candy and such. Although he does give me money to go pick out something special. This year I just put the money up and am saving toward a mini vacation for us. I always try to put a junk bucket together for him. He says he doesn't like it but deep down I know he appreciates the thought. I bought him a big bottle of Crown Royal, a 6 pack of beer, then a heart candy of chocolate, pretzels and assorted "man junk food". I took the heart candy of chocolate for myself...lol. He barely made it home for Valentine's night..got in around 9:45 pm. I sure was glad to see him come thru the door. The week he is gone is sooo long and lonely.
I finally made my homemade laundry soap! It was easy and fast to make.
Homemade Laundry Soap
2 cups of Borax
2 cups of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda
1 big bar of Zote (which I grated using my hand grater)
1/2 cup of oxyclean
Mixed all ingredients together then I put a cup at a time in my blender to make the pink zote pieces smaller. Then I put in a quart mason jar and assorted containers.
I will only use 2 tablesppons at a time.
So then I used it in a load of laundry..the clothes came out clean but didn't have the smell good that I like to smell. so back to Wal-Mart I went to get some Gain crystals to put in my wash. That should do the trick to make my clothes smell awesome. Wish I had made this stuff before now.
I just wanted to say hi to everyone and hope your weekend is full of love and laughter!
