More new pics!

Ok first things first.

CLEANING TIP: The first pic shows my stainless steel sink. The bowl on the left I cleaned with Borax and the one on the right shows how stained it was. Pretty disgusting I know but its a good cleaning tip and I didn't have to scrub that hard. It looks like a brand new sink. I have tried Borax on the bathtub as well and it gets all the soap scum off.

The grapes in June.

These tigerlilies started to bloom. I thought they were dead. We planted them 2-3 years ago.

Here's my glads. I must have at least 8 of them blooming right now.

I planted some bulbs a year ago and thought they were not going to come up but they did. Don't ask me what this is though. Some type of lillies.

Here is Roxy and Penny playing in the kitchen. Ain't they cute?

First batch of blueberries. I put a nickel in the bucket so you could see how big they are.

and finally here is potato leek soup I made on 6/9. It was so good but I need to cut the recipe in half next time. We were eating this for three days straight and I even was eating it for lunch. Love the soup but not that much :)


  1. aHA! I have borax on hand because I make my own laundry detergent. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I'll try to post any tips I might come across because it sure does help everyone out. I am trying to be more organic in my cleaning supplies too! How do you make laundry detergent?
