There was a Hotel California concert to go to (priorities, you know!!), and a few other fun things, but mostly work, work work. The yard is in constant need of attention. Not just our own yard, but this one, too:
This is a little rental house we bought in Decatur. We've been busy as all get-out working on getting this ready to sell. There is still much to do, but every few days, now that it's started raining again, I have to mow the yard. We've filled in low places in the backyard, sewn grass seed, repaired several bad areas on the backyard storage shed, and I've cleaned and cleaned, but more to do there, and there is just the basic stuff to make sure it "shines like a dime in a goat's butt" (thanks, hubby...I needed that visual...NOT). It's been newly sided, the windows will be wrapped, and I will be doing landscaping in the front and back, as well. A cute little house which will be market ready sometime in the next few weeks.
When I do get some free time, I've begun making soaps again, which is music to a few ears. I spent many years making handmade soaps and selling them at various festivals and bazaars. I never made a lot of money doing it, but it was fun and it was a good reason to get out and see people. A few loyal customers have missed these, as they really are much nicer to use than the detergent bars from the store. Here's what I've made so far:
