Just this past weekend I decided it was time to clean house (at least where my blog reading was happening). It was really hard for me to unsubscribe or un-follow these blogs. I felt like I was hurting their feelings.
It's not like that was the case, I'm sure that most won't even notice that I'm not there anymore. But it was hard for me to do none the less. That's how I am in real life too. It's hard for me to say no to telemarketers, friends and family who ask us to go somewhere when I really want to say no, things like that - I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
It's hard but I've started to say no to things that I'm too tired to do or when I just want some down time. Sometimes when I say "I have something planned," it may be that my plan is to take a nap, craft, read, etc. That's a plan right? I realize that I can't agree to everything and make others happy if I'm not happy or if I'm too tired.
I ran out of my homemade laundry soap while the kids were home visiting for Christmas. And just now had a chance to make another batch. The recipe is on my original post here. It's easy to make and soo inexpensive but the best part is it does a great job on the laundry. This time I shredded the soap (I used Zote) in my food processor - so much easier!
Not sure if anyone else got this message when they visited The Old Parsonage today. Vee brought it to my attention. I ran my url through a Malware detection site and it came back clean. So fingers crossed, the problem (whatever it was) is fixed.Thanks again Vee!
One last thing before I forget...what do you think about the large photos? I'm undecided, although I do like how the laundry soap looks in my Gram's yellow ware bowl.
I'm linking this post to How Sweet The Sound for some Pink Saturday fun and Hope in Every Season for Homemaking Weekend!
