Lots of pots have been on our stove lately....many of them threatening to boil over. This weekend, we pulled a couple of pots off the burners and I'm thinking that space is a good thing. Maggie performed in the drama, 12 Angry Jurors this past week. The cast of 14 had been working on the production all year long. They performed to a sold out crowd and received much deserved praise. Maggie did a fabulous job and we're so proud of her in so many ways.
I've finished up a couple of projects over the last month of sitting at baseball games and with all of the busy-ness, I just haven't had time to post them....
First up, a shoe bag - turned into a brush bag. I realized that when we travel, I take along a crazy amount of hair brushes. One for straightening, one for curling and one for just brushing. They don't fit in my toiletry bag and usually I just shove them in my suitcase. But now, I've got a home for them. This size of this shoe bag is perfect for all my brushes and combs....and any other stuff like gel and spray.
•1 bar of shaved bar soap (Ivory, ZOTE, Fels-Naptha)
•1 cup of borax
•1 cup of washing soda
Mix all the ingredients together and store in a air tight jar. I used 2 Tablespoons per load.....super easy.
This website helped me a lot when I was determining what ingredients I needed and how much to use.
So, that's what's been happening around here. I hope that whatever is wrapping up or kicking off at your house is filling your days with joy and gratitude.

When I haven't been running kids to basketball, play practice or baseball games, I've gotten some time to work in the yard...gardening and pruning and planting. One of my favorite sounds is the sound of the shovel scraping through dirt. There is something really rich in the way it sounds to my ears. I don't even mind pulling weeds.
