Happy Monday Everyone :-)
Who else is excited about a new week filled with possibilities?
We had a terrific weekend. On Saturday we got to hang out with cool people on our date and even snapped a pic that has both of us in it *mind boggle*
Then Sunday was occupied with the Third Annual SLC Zombie Walk. We had an absolute blast. Surprisingly, it was a real family event, lots of kids and parents; there were even dressed up babies in strollers. Aside from the whole zombie thing, it was a nice walk getting to chat with fun people. I think I laughed more last night than I have in ages. Some highlights were the Westboro Baptist style protesters who had hilarious signs like, "Kids need Mom and Dad not Mom and Dead" and "Protect our Borders, no more Undead Immigrants" and at the end of our walk we were attacked by Survivors with Super-saokers. Love it!
Here's some pics:
Now if you are anything like me, what's going through your mind right now is,
How are they going to clean up that mess???
Seriously, we had fake blood everywhere and on everything.
The blood has lots of staining ingredients like peanut butter, corn syrup, chocolate syrup and food coloring. Ew!
We've been making our own laundry detergent for a few months now and I was curious how it would manage sun baked food coloring ground into in light cotton PJs.
The answer: BRILLIANTLY!
Here's the recipe I use:
POWDERED LAUNDRY DETERGENT
• 2 cups Fels Naptha Soap (finely grated - you could also try the other bar soap—Zote, etc.)
1 cup Washing Soda
1 cup Borax
• Mix well and store in an airtight plastic container.
• Use 2 tablespoons per full load.
We add essential orange oil to the mix, smells wonderful! Home made laundry soap is perfect for HE washers as it's low suds. It's also so cheap - score!
I keep ours in a cute jar:
Time to watch Hamlet with my little brain eaters. Hope your day is grand.
