Homemade Soap

I made some homemade laundry detergent tonight. It was so simple. I made the powder type, so I will test it tomorrow and see how it does.
1 bar of Fels Naptha laundry soap (grated)
1/2 cup Borax
1/2 cup laundry soda
mix together very well (I used a coffee grinder).
Use 2 T per load.

Also, Rosie had her spaying surgery a couple of weeks ago (my Maltese) and she is FINALLY gaining weight. Yeah!

I worked on her drawing some more.

This is a pastel drawing of Makayla that I did today. Like it? She is holding up her "silly band"!

My Mom, Sisters and me. My daughter, Kristi, (the professional photographer) took this! We are at Mandy's house.


We've had so much rain lately, it's been good for my garden but bad for my goat's hooves. We had fun on the 4th of July, fishing, visiting, eating good food. We have been working very hard out back clearing around our pond. It is so hot that every time we go outside, we have to take a shower.

I found a beautiful collection of clothes hanging on lines -- over 700 photos -- on flicker. I am not alone.
