Hung Out To Dry or Die

Yep my brand of laundry detergent is 'hung out to die'


So a few weeks ago, on Feb 6th to be exact I bought this detergent.
It had been awhile since I've bought powder but there wasn't any
liquid on sale so I figured I would give it a try . . .






This particular box purchased at the Walmart neighborhood market just a few blocks away boasted 46 washings.
 
Since I was considering changing to powder to save I figured I would just check it out.  And guess what I found!  Well I got 28 washings.  Now I realize it is possible I missed a couple but 10. 
And, to make it worse I didn't always measure the scoop to the full mark.  

Did you notice this one is advertised at $6.99 each.  At Walmart
it was $4.99.  Boy am I glad I didn't pay $6.99
 
Our local 4 News has a segment called "Deal or Dude" where the test product suggested by viewers. 
 
Well in my scientific experiment this one was a dude. 
 
I know we're all trying to save money these
days so you might give it a try and check out just how many washings your getting from your detergent.
 
I am interested in knowing what kind you use.  How much do you spend?
 
BTW the next vacation post coming soon...Just taking a break to do laundry.

We've had such a long winter it has certainly been easy to have
that feeling . . .

Being a native Texan snow isn't the norm.  We have to spend our
vacations in places like Colorado if we want to enjoy a little of the white stuff. 

Yep I have been havin' Cabin Fever.

 I bet I had you goin' thinking I was already bored on my vacation.

 Nope. No way.  Not in a million years.  But I do have Cabin Fever.

This kind . . .

 I've been in my sewing room . . .
 Making these cool Log Cabin blocks.  Do you see anything special
about them? 

These blocks are half browns and half mixed colors.  I am having the most fun piecing these.  I am on a mission to empty my scrap bin. 

These new blocks will be a complementing quilted throw that will go with the King Size Log Cabin that is waiting in storage for me
to quilt.  I posted about this one here. 

Since our move I haven't been able to find it.  So I have resorted to emptying that scrap bin. 

So, for me since I can't go here for my vacation . . .

I'll do the next best thing . . .

Hear It On Sunday . . .

I read this somewhere  Hear It On Sunday use it on Monday . . .
I don't remember if it was a blog link party or on facebook.
What a great way to think about the 'word' you hear.  Thinking about sharing it with someone. 

I heard this song this morning.  It was new to me. 




A beautiful song with an aswesome lyric.  Definitely worthy to share.

Pinterest Pic . . . Why Didn't I Think Of It

I am a huge fan of Pinterest.  I can sit for hours looking at Pins.
I probably have too many boards.  How many do you have?

My favorite pin from the last few days was this . . .

I love this idea.  It was one of those 'Why Didn't I Think Of It'
"Ah Ha" moments.

I have always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with my coat closet.  Back in the day when I had a house I always tried to keep our coat closet free of clutter and ready and available for when friends came over.    I have always hated fussing with hangers. 

This is the perfect alternative.  Love it!  

Joining Ann for Thriving on Thursday.


I tried to follow the pin to find out where it came from but I couldn't find out. 

So have you had any 'Ah Ha' moments because of Pinterest?

Winter Blues?

Do you feel Blue in the winter.  Maybe it's really cold and cloudy
and you can't go outside much?
Or snowy?  I love photo's of snow.  Houses with snow, snow fields,
horses like the above photo.  I feel blessed to live in Texas.  We don't really get snow. 

And our winters are usually blessedly short.  A day or two here or there of icy weather.  Lots of chilling winds.  But a lot of the time our afternoons warm up. 

Today I am sitting with the patio door open.  It's a beautiful winter day. 

I was looking around my house as I transitioned from Christmas decorations to my winter decorations.  

And I realized that I seem to use certain items for the winter. 
I bet you do too.  Of course the throws come out.  Fires are lit. 
Probably not as many plants around.  

I noticed I tend to use candles more . . .




I love the soft glow of candle light.

The throws come out in the fall.  They stay with us through the winter.  On the back of the couch and on chairs making every room warm and cozy.  

This year we're enjoying our new patio.  We are enjoying the cool evenings.  It's a homey and welcoming spot. 
We enjoy watching the sunset.  Unfortunately we're not on the water.. . but every night God gives us a beautiful painting to enjoy.

No my winters aren't Blue.  I am happy and Blessed and warm and cozy. 

So how do you make your winters warm and cozy?

Happy Blue Monday

I've always enjoyed blogging on Monday and
visiting Sally for Blue Monday. 


Since I have a new job my post will be late but I wanted to join anyway and share this really cool
art work.
 My Cowboy stumbled onto these on the net.  This one is amazing.
 
Some cool Blues.   Go by Sally's and say Hi
and visit the other Blues.

On Sunday

How I start my day . . .
This is where I would be if I wasn't where I am . . .Yep if I was thinking about me this might be where I would worship.

But...it's not about me.  It's about more than me.
It's about sharing God's love.   And, that is what
I get to do every Sunday.  

 

I am on a Journey . . .

 

Sometimes it's a wild ride.  Sometimes it's slow and easy.    And it is a Joy.

Sweeeet Saturday

I used to join a really fun Saturday linking party.  I always enjoyed writing about what makes
my day Sweet on Saturday . . .
 
I've written about my sweet grandson and spending time with him
 
 
I've written about Sweet Saturday Dates with my Cowboy
 
 
 
I've written about Saturday laundry days.  When I was able to get the sheets off the bed before the cat settled in for a Cat Nap!
 
And whats going on in my sewing room. 
 
These are some of my favorite things to do.  Yes even doing the laundry. 
 
And, it seems lately that Saturday is a day I spend . . .
 
 
I love playing around with PicMonkey.
I am thinking this will be my new header.
I already added a new background. 
I'll be adding new photos soon along with the new headed.
 
So that's what made my Saturday Sweet.
How about yours?

Happy Valentines Day
