I'm dealing with another (painless) visual migraine, so I'm not replying to posts I would normally reply to.

Thanks, Ma, it is good to feel this way. Our Lottery Corporation has a motto - "Know your limit and play within it". I have been doing that with my activities and pain levels and it is really working for me!

That sounds great Chopper, we dont have owls around our area, it would be lovely

Thanks Kylie. It's mostly annoying. It's gone this morning.

I'm getting ready to go for a massage. Yay massage!

Just finished making a batch of "dry" homemade laundry detergent. Gonna test it out against the liquid I dearly love. It was easy enough to make and using the food processor was fantastic.

I also made the powdered part of a batch of liquid detergent, again using the food processor. I'm almost out of the liquid and I certainly don't want to have a laundry detergent "crisis."

I truly can't believe how wonderful this stuff is and how inexpensive it is!!! I'll never go back to commercially-produced laundry detergent again.

We were out in Denver to visit our son this August. When we were coming down from Pikes Peak on the Clog train we were right next to the "top" of a rainbow. Oh my gosh, I have never seen anything so beautiful. I am so glad I got to share this experience with my DH, son and 10 year old grandson. I will never forget the vivid colors, they almost looked liquid.

I basically use the same recipe for my powdered recipe as a liquid one. I figure it turns Ito liquid in the washing machine anyway

I'm trying to get the energy to do some things around the house but am not finding any. A third night in a row of not sleeping well, the sore muscles from my big day on Wednesday and helping DH to move all the stuff on our patio so they can pressure wash and paint. I did the lighter work but it was still exhausting. I think it is time for my nap!

Just made two pans of apple squares to take to a get together at SIL's tomorrow night. This recipe is the simplest, easiest, best-tasting apple dessert.
