Another Fun Day in my City

We had a fun weekend Back in the Bush!

On Saturday, Shelbie and her boyfriend went to a Medieval Faire.  They had a great time, and they had this caricature drawn, which I think is adorable!

She captured Dusty perfectly!

While they were there, Elayna and I ran some errands, and when we got home we made homemade laundry soap and fabric softener.  I am lucky to have a helper to grate the bar of soap and then to melt it; that part is the only “hard” part of the process; and even that’s not really hard, just long and tedious.

Melting the grated soap.

Stirring the mixture.

This is the fabric softener.

I used lavender essential oil for both the laundry soap and the fabric softener; it’s one of our favorite scents.

Once we finished with all that, we rode the 4-wheeler for a while.  Then, it was time for dinner! 

Cubed venison steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, and corn.

Byron insisted I take a picture of his plate because it looked “perfect”, but he doesn’t eat corn! =O

So I’m sharing my plate as well, with yummy corn. Mmmm!

Hope y’all had a happy weekend as well!

  1. The caricature is adorable! How awesome to make your own detergent and fabric softener. I pinned so many recipes. I keep thinking I am going to make some when we are retired because our income will be fixed and not what we are use to……LOL

  3. I make laundry detergent and fabric softener but mine don’t require cooking or stirring…hmmm. Fabric softener is the easiest as I just add some essential oil to a jug of white vinegar…done!
