A Crockpot cooking website that I found!!!!

I found this on a friends facebook page the other day and I have been trying some of the recipes.....YUMMYYY


Go Check it out!

Now I am off to go finish mowing my yard and till my garden one more time before I plant.....cant wait for all the fresh veggies.... :)

Have a very blessed day

My laundry schedule

I thought I would post my laundry schedule today in hopes that it may help others.

I dont enjoy laundry, I really cant stand to fold it or hang it.   I do love the smell of fresh clean clothes and the feel of line dried clothes though...and I LOVE the smell of laundry detergent.  My homemade laundry detergent...... :) 

I admit, I was drowning in laundry.  It never got all done, never was all put up or all hung...ughhh just not pretty at all. 

So I sat down one day and decided that I had to get a handle on it.  It is working so far. 
Week one....
Monday, Wednesday, Friday....Pauls and My laundry... Usually by Friday I dont have anything left, so we do sheets and extras...

Tuesday, Thursday... The kids do their laundry. (They wash, dry, (unless we hang outside, then they help me with this.) and fold and put up)!!!  But remember, I have an almost 7 yr old, and a curious 5 yr old...they both know how the washer and dryer work and since we dont use bleach (vinegar instead) and our homemade detergent is not harmful....They really enjoy it.  Which is more than I can say for their mom.. :) 

The next week, we rotate our days, I take tuesday and thusday and the girls and jason get M.W. F.  And we do their sheets and extras...

We rotate these weeks and everyones laundry is done and we dont have to worry about whether everyone has clean clothes...It has worked out really well. 

On really busy weeks, I have started doing this.  It still gets all the laundry done....

Hope you all have a blessed week!!!
