A beautiful day here! I feel I accomplished much for a Monday. We started our day by eating breakfast out on the back patio overlooking our small lake. Then we dove into laundry and school work. The last two weeks have been short changed due to the TEA RALLY, out of town guests, and then mom's back surgery. So today, we tried to get back into a normal routine.

Shane and I made some home made laundry detergent. I've used it for my last two loads of clothes and it seems to be working as well as a fellow blogger suggested it would. I like that! It will save me quite a bit of $$$$$ and we all like that don't we? I finally got Shane's dress slacks hemmed. Mighty Mom will be so proud of me!

I just got off the phone with mom. She sounded so good! Two ladies from her church were there visiting her, so I'm sure that energized her. Thanks Connie and Sarah!

Mom saw her diabetes doctor today and all was good. At her request. he also checked her incision and saw no sign of infection, so that was good to hear. It really wasn't his job to check it, but dad had suspicions he spotted a little oozing at the incision site.

I'm on the phone with my Aunt Ruby Carol who lives in West Virginia. She saw my baby today! He was unloading lumber for the new log cabin!
Now for my sister, who really LOVES all things political, a few short video clips from the Tampa Tea Party. Enjoy Rita!
FYI: Since I can now post videos, I removed my playlist from this blog. Jackie, I trust this brings you a smile!

Pam, so glad to hear you mom is doing better. I know you are glad to spend a day at home getting caught up. I've been wanting to try the detergent, just haven't worked up the nerve yet to do it. I will one of these days.
I haven't figured out how to download a clip to blogger yet. I'm so impressed with yours.

I am glad to hear your mom is doing good...whew...
I have the stuff to make the laundry soap, just haven't had the energy......
I would have love to go to the tea parties....

I'm glad your mom feels better. If you decide you really like that laundry soap would you consider posting it? I've read about several different kinds and how they work, but I'd appreciate hearing your opinion of how it works on your different loads of laundry and how much you have to use to get it looking good. You seem to be one of those down to earth no nonsense people like me so I feel safe thinking that you wouldn't bother if your clothes came out dingy. :)

Thanks for the videos! Can you post the detergent recipe?

Breakfast on a porch overlooking the lake! Sounds heavenly to me! :)

I knew there was a reason why I liked you. You're a racists, tea baggin' red neck. LOL Kidding. You saw the news about that right?
