Day 334 – Upcycling

I made a reusable shopping tote out of an empty dog food sack. I am not entirely happy with the end result, but hey, it was my first attempt, and I already have changes I want to make o the next one.


Day 333 – Scrubbies Galore

I guess they are all considered Tawashis, but whatever you call them, they are good old scrubbies for scrubbing your dishes nice and clean. They are also the only thing other than the magic eraser that I can use to get the coffee stains out of my coffee pot and mugs. Been playing around with different patterns, and think I have found my personal favorite.

Day 332 – Towel Ring

Crocheted me a towel ring to hang on the stove. Me being weird the way I am I didn’t want an actual topper crocheted on the towel, because they never fold up right and fit neatly in the towel drawer. I’m pretty happy with the result.

Day 331 – Facial?

Thought I would crochet some cotton face cleaning cloths, rather than continuing to buy cotton balls and pads. Not to mention adding used ones to a landfill. Been playing around with sizes and patterns. Not sure which style I like best.

Day 330 – Livestock Show

Robyn cleaned up at the Spring Livestock Show today.

Day 328 – Cold Front

After a high of 73, the cold front is moving in from the north, bringing that cold north wind with it.

Day 326 – Flying Around the Track

G-Man built us a track out back to run the buggies on. Thankfully it was dry enough after yesterday’s rain to have a little fun this evening. I was able to get this shot of him flying off the bigger jump.

Day 325 – Oatmeal Waffles

Waffles and bacon, waffles and eggs, or just plain ole waffles. Seems we can’t go more than a week or two without having waffles for dinner. A while back, I decided to try something different, and found a recipe for oatmeal waffles, made a couple changes to match our particular taste, and now oatmeal waffles are the winner every single time. Leftovers are not a problem, as they toast up wonderfully for a oatmealy waffley treat later. If you would like to try them, see below for the recipe.
