1 cup of washing soda
1 cup of borax
i don't measure any more though. just eyeball it.

~making lunch. making a mess.

~making myself crazy by sewing a doily on to my quilt top. never again will i sew a doily on anything. (but it is cute!).

~making some lists. i'm a list maker. though my handwriting is nearly illegible thanks to the computer.

~making my way out to the hammock while the littles finish napping.

what are you making these days?


  1. Lily is napping and Lulu is working on birthday party invitations and I'm working on her prairie dress! The bonnet is done but it's..um...huge. I think she doesn't mind. Is Duma scary?

  2. mmm coffee ice cubes, for what you use these for? sounds great thought!

  3. Love the light on your first photo. Beautiful blues.

  4. sini, i use the cubes for iced coffee. that way it doesn't get watered down and it tastes good!!!

    jessica - duma can be intense and the boy's father dies early in the movie. it's a great movie though. even if only you watch it : )

  5. It rained all day today so instead of BBQ'ing I made a big pot of spaghetti and tackled the laundry.

  6. that rain is headed this way. a big pot of spaghetti sounds good for a rainy night, we might be doing that tomorrow!

  7. I've had this post bookmarked for the laundry "recipe" but keep coming back for the photos.

  8. Oh yes, ice coffee! Thank you for reminding me of that, it will be so good at summer when it's awfully hot :) Do you have some special recipe? I haven't ever done it by myself, it would be better to do it than buy from store.
