Spring

Friday these beautiful red winged blackbirds stopped by our feeders for a little snack.  They are usually the first birds to return in the spring.  They are a week earlier this year than last year.  Hopefully, that means an early spring.   However, this morning was no indication that spring is on its way.  Wind chill temperature -10 degrees with snow on the ground.  Well, the snow is gone now and the wind chill now is 5 degrees so we are warming up some.

Not much going on here.  I have started work on Sam’s quilt.  I have all the 5 x 5 in. squares cut out and am ready to start sewing them together.  School has went well this week.   Did I mention to you all about the last batch of homemade laundry soap I made using the laundry bar soap instead of fels naptha?  Well, those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that in the past I have had trouble with the homemade laundry soap.  My clothes seem to get a dingy look and the towels became really non-absorbent.  I know, strange stuff, but strange happens a lot here.  I guess it is our water that causes these problems.  Well, so far I have had no problems using this batch.  It is a little bit different recipe than I have tried before but I think the real difference is using homemade laundry bar soap.  I will try to remember to keep you all updating as to how it is doing.

Well, I better get busy.  Church tonight and the menu is baked potato bar.  Sounds delicious to me.  I really like baked potatoes.  Enjoy your Sunday and God bless.
