Many blessings were received this week. I am so spoiled that I’m going to have my name legally changed to Princess.
Gifts from Kelli
Kelli sent me a wonderful package. She sewed an adorable little patchwork bag for me and included a yummy raspberry chocolate bar, sweet little rub-on transfers to play with, and a cute stationery kit. And all because I loaned her a book—next I’m loaning her my car! Thank you, Kelli!
Gifts from Kristie
Kristie gifted me with these gorgeous Halloween towels when she came over to work with me on the Our Prayers for the World flag banner this past Sunday—they are the cutest things in the world! She also brought me two little gold seashells and a mermaid charm--does she know me or what? Thank you, Kristie!
My issue of the new Victoria magazine arrived yesterday—the premier issue in the magazine’s reincarnation. I am so thrilled!
You Make Me Smile Award
The fabulous Joni of Yummers! has awarded me the You Make Me Smile Award. The first award received by my blog—I’m so tickled. Check out Joni’s cool blog and you’ll smile, too.
She also tagged me. Since I recently posted two other tags about me, I will do this next week.
Today’s Cleaning Recipe
Today ends my Blog Action Day week-long project to share natural cleaning recipes from my files. My final recipe was deliberately chosen as a tongue-in-cheek observation that despite our worry that the world is going down the toilet, we can do something positive to clean it up.
I found this recipe by Sandy Maine at The Herb Companion.
You’ll wonder about the sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLS) ingredient. This is a chemical powder often used in bath bombs and to replace soap for those with soap sensitization.
For more recipes and information about the bad chemicals in commercial products as well as the good ingredients we can use, Natural Health Hut Clinic, Educational Center and Organic Herb Farm is a great resource.
SLS powder: check your local herbal store for this. You can also Google for a supplier but here is one source.
Thank you for being part of my little world and have a wonderful weekend!
