Time on my hands…
I admit it. I am one of those people who cannot stop picking up rocks and shells. These round ones came from the beach in Jerusalem, Rhode Island. What can I say. They make me happy. Some of us are easily amused.
I was doing laundry today. I have written before about my homemade laundry detergent. It does a great cleaning job. I have not used bleach all summer and my white sneaker socks are still white. I do still have a half gallon bottle of bleach left over though.
So, while I was in the laundry room I decided to fill my compost bucket with warm water and add some bleach as it was getting moldy around the edges. I thought I was exceptionally careful, but of course there are two big bleach spots on my dark shirt. I hate that. Not amused at all.
Tomorrow is packing up day and we will leave for a month in Florida on Saturday morning. We are taking so little with us this time that Mike has not even done a “practice packing” of the car. Do others do that? Practice packing the car? Of course the last two trips down were so loaded that the packing did require something close to completing a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle and Mike did it without giving up the ability to use the rear view mirror so I do give him credit.
