Where does the time go ?

My busy weekend in pictures.

                                                      Side garden is in for the season.
                                                    Teepee for the green beans.


                                                       Working on my flower beds.



                           Using a tip from pintrest.  Vinegar and dawn to get rid of soap scum.
                            Homemade laundry soap, dish soap and Fabric softener for Abigail .


                                         Tony teaching Rick how to dress a turkey.

                                               Lip balm and  Foot moisturizer.
                                           Finishing quilt for Abagail's new baby boy.


                                                      Making new chicken roost .
      Sand box under roost makes it easy to scoop out.  The white box is for sweeping out the floor. Just sweep in box and deposit into compose.
                            Added rebar to my clothes line so the wind doesn't tip it over.

                                Trying to finish wash. But it just keeps replenishing it's self.

                       Strawberry pie from a recipe off of My Simple Country Living blog.

    1. It was suppose to be a lotion bar.( found on Pintrest) But after looking on You Tube I found out I was really making lip balm in a bar shape. Still worked out. I had lip balm containers. I also put some in a bee jar. Believe it or not, it works great for the heels of your feet. Just rub it on ( it doesn't take much ) and throw your socks on. Who know.

  2. Phew! I got tired just reading that! That bacon looks amazing, by the way. I was just watching a couple of videos about making your own dish & laundry soap and I think I'm gonna give it a shot. I'm sick of paying a small fortune for the stuff. The quilt is just beautiful. One more thing I've always wanted to do but never had the time. Maybe now is the right time to start, eh?

    1. It really doesn't take a lot of time to make your own. My dish soap takes about 2 minutes. The laundry soap take any where from 10 minutes to 25 depending on if your making dry or liquid. Hand soap is about 10 minutes.
      The bacon is amazing. We don't buy from the store any more. We have gotten spoiled on the homemade stuff.
