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.
It sure is cold here today isn’t it? The ground was covered in snow when we got up this morning. Tomorrow is supposed to be 51º and sunny. That will be a nice change. I am glad you have found a laundry soap recipe that doesn’t make your clothes non absorbent. A baked potato bar sounds delicious. 🙂
Beautiful picture. I hope that the laundry bar works for you. I know that I do like how it turns out for me.
Have a wonderful evening. Your baked potato bar sounds good.
The quilt is beautiful. We are so ready for spring. I hope the laundry bars work well. I with ya on the potatoes. I love them! Hope you have a great day.
