Today I was really a busy bee!
Today I had to find some energy! I needed to make more laundry soap and I decided to make the liquid this time...the 5 gallon bucket has been waiting for me..and today was the day...the powder was enough for today's laundry...and I had the time! It was a quick and easy thing to do...and I feel so proud of how it's turned out...Tomorrow I intend to do the bedding...not expecting any company and I need Cecil's help with it. So I'll be able to see how the new liquid soap works, within a couple of hours it was beginning to gel, and I added a little lavender oil to it before it started ...that should make the laundry smell pretty fresh...The five gallon bucket is half full, and should last for quite a few washes since the recipe only calls for one half cup per wash..I might add 3/4 cup :o) it's cheap enough :o) UPDATE: The soap works fine, although I didn't smell any lavender ( I don't think I used enough essence, next time)
Then I decided to make some Lasagna, it took a while to do all the
dicing etc. but the meal turned out to be worth the effort, I've made enough for more than one meal..with Spring on it's way I'll be glad to pull it out of the freezer. After all that guess what I forgot! the Darn mushrooms ugh! At least I can say I added my own homemade cheese :o) it was delicious...Cecil had seconds (so what else is new).
