i've been so busy trying to keep the house in near-showing order at all times, that i have let some other things go. so today i am catching up. paying bills, planning meals, writing grocery list, making laundry detergent, working on taxes and doing laundry. no big plans other than finishing these things up today. paul had a home inspection yesterday and one today. we don't see him at all on those days, so 2 this week is plenty. i'm ready for the weekend already.
oh, and ayla is healthy. and she is MUCH more work when she is healthy. she is not to be trusted alone for even one second. so i can only get these things done when she is napping. and she appears to be cutting down to one nap a day. we are heading into a new phase with her. fun, but work!

i triple the following recipe and put it in an old ice cream bucket with an old baby formula scoop and use 2 scoops per load:
2 c. Fels Naptha or Ivory Soap, grated with the finest side possible of my hand held cheese grater (i use ivory)
1 c. Borax
1 c. Washing Soda (NOT baking soda)
