Random updates on some of the goings on around here...
Garden: FAIL. I have a few theories as to why we have nothing, not a single veggie! I may have planted too many things in a very small space. They are growing, but maybe lack sufficient room to produce?? Then, maybe not enough water? We've had plenty of rain, but I haven't really watered besides that. I don't know, maybe it's just a bum year!
Dishwasher detergent: Still haven't found a good mixture. Soaking my dishes in vinegar completely got rid of the residue, but I'm still tinkering with the detergent. I put vinegar in the rinse agent spot in the dishwasher, and haven't noticed much of an improvement. And, really, it's not bothering me enough to work very hard at it! :)
Summer: Still going way too fast, I panic every time I write the date and feel it getting closer and closer to August. Just typing the word "August" right now is pushing me to the verge of tears :(
Basement office: Was clean and clear and feeling spacious for a while. It's starting to get out of control again, I have piles of bills to go through, etc. I'm thinking about finding a cool, fun, interesting chair (maybe on craigslist!) to use at the computer. Maybe a bright area rug... Anything to make me want to spend more time in here and get my work done!
Laundry: I have been the master of my laundry for the last several weeks. I am on a roll, and no one can stop me. Vacations haven't even thrown me off, I leave with empty baskets, then return home and get on top of our dirty stuff right away. I feel totally accomplished when I have a couch free of folded laundry, and the basement bathroom isn't overflowing with overstuffed baskets!
Speaking of, better go switch over the load I have going right now, and play a little Hi Ho Cherry O with my big chickens before my itty bitty chickens wake up!
