Shamrock 8k last year. This was a much smaller race, but I had so much fun! My over all time wasn't as fast as it was at the Shamrock, but I still had a blast.
I had a blast. I hope you will forgive the lack of style file today. Since I got home, I've been busy running to three different stores to find the stuff to make my Mom's Home Made Laundry Soap. Turns out, none of the Targets I went to had all the ingredients. But walmart did! It was the first time I stepped foot into Walmart in a good six months. I was reminded why I don't go there, but I think I can make a trip every so often for some washing soda and fels naptha soap. Since I am going all natual in my eating, I started thinking, 'Why not just go for it in all areas of my life?' Plus, making my own cleaning products is cheaper than buying them. As I use up the standard products I already have, I am going to begin using cheaper, safer home made cleaning products. Did you know with only a few ingredients you can clean basically any surface of your home? Borax, washing soda, baking soda, and vinegar will get you a long way. If you want to use an antibacterial, you can also use hydrogen peroxide. I'll be updating you as I begin making other things. My Mom blogs about simple living, and I think she's onto something. There is a reason our great great grandmothers cooked and cleaned the way they did: it was healthier, safer, and best of all...CHEAPER. :)
I've also been busy making a meal for a gal in our small group. She just had baby number 2, so we try to provide a few weeks of meals. I made some pizzas and a batch of healthy brownies. The brownies taste a little weird, but they're passable. If you don't call them a brownie, they are much more palatable.
I think that's all I have to update all of my (two) loyal readers. :) Have a great weekend!
