Simple Things

I made cookies today.
Toll  House, my go to recipe.  Added toffee bits and coconut.

I can't believe how much I love my homeade laundry detergent.  Love.

I opened up my drawer in the kitchen to find this the other day.  This is not unlike the time I found pillow stuffing in my sugar canister.  Those girls!

Here I am at 3 months.                                                     Stuart at 3 months.


  1. You look so much alike!Our poor mothers did not have Bumbos back then.
    Pass the cookies please.They look delish.(=

  2. Jo! He looks so much like you! Guess the Grandpa Reuben thing is long past. What a cutie.

  3. lydia, where do you get the washing soda? does your recipe call for fels naptha (?) ? I'm ready to try this stuff...

  4. I've seen this recipe before and it's intrigued me. It always helps when someone you know recommends it! :) oh, and if you'd like to get all these things at one place, try Ace. I know they don't stock washing soda at this point, but can order it in and have it in a day or two, and i know they carry fels naptha. And borax.

  5. The cookies look and sound delicious!Years ago I had a bad case of poison ivy on my legs.The Dr.said to wash with Fels-Naptha soap(saw your soap recipe on your newest post)
