Thursday already? this week has been flying by.....
We have been getting lots of rain. I went out this morning to see if my pots of plants needed watered, they didn't, but I did find about dozen cherry tomatoes ready to pick. They would not all fit in my hand so I put them in my apron pockets.
On Tuesday, I did a little shopping. At my favorite thrift store, I found this back of the door rack for $4. I had been looking at them online and they sell new for $25 or more. This one is very sturdy and my husband will add some anchors to the top to make it secure to the door.
I've read about Dukes mayo but have never seen it for sale in Oklahoma. Well, Dollar Tree sells it now, in little 8 ounce jars, for $1. It really is the best tasting mayo I've ever tried so I bought more. I made pimento cheese and deviled eggs with it Saturday -
Tuesday was a primary election day in Oklahoma. For 2 of the races, I liked both leading candidates. But 2 other races, I didn't care for any of the candidates. At least for now, the negative political ads are taking a break on TV and online
I've been reading a book called "all you need is less" and learned that the Downy fabric softener I have used for 30 years has some ewwwwww ingredients. So, I bought some Mrs Meyers, both liquid and sheets, in lavender. They smell so clean and soften the laundry just as good as the ewwww products.
They do cost more but I don't care.
yes I have tried vinegar and the Diy softener made from hair conditioner in the past but was not happy with the results. We have hard, full of lime water in Oklahoma, that famous homemade laundry soap does not work for me either.
I also took of the papers and photos on the fronts and left nothing on the top but 2 baskets. One basket holds washcloths to clean up grands when they are messy and the other holds zipper bags that get reused.
I sorted the condiments- all the peppers are in one door basket,
and salsas in one, salad dressings in another.
trust me, both appliances needed cleaning and I am so happy they are sparkling clean, for now anyway.
bye for now......I hope you are enjoying this first official week of summer 2014.
