I'll be searching through my freezer hoping to find some treasure in there to take out for supper. When I opened it a few minutes ago to check and see if there was any bag with frozen meat wrappers to put out in the trash, saw an interesting container. Almost looks like beef stew, but I know it can't be that. I'll have to give that a closer look. Did buy a pkg of folder labels a couple of months ago to label those mysterious containers, but so far have only put one on the marshmallow we used the other day "Pure" - to let me know that it's safe to use again for whoopie pies, that a knife that first went into peanut butter hadn't made its way into there, since we have a couple of nut allergy people in our family.
Took advantage of having to lug the trash up from the cellar, by throwing a wash in while I was down there. Testing the waters, so to speak, on my back/hip, and don't think today will be the day for traipsing out for the shower gift.
Kargiver, did you end up bringing over cookie dough for your friend to freeze? She must thank her lucky stars every time you show up to help out. A lot of people are great at starting something like that, but then with time, slough off.
Winter, I think and have always thought that you are doing a great job with your son.
As for the cleanliness of quilts, I'm coming from my own experience - a quilt made when my mother visited her aunt in Maine, would be filled with old worn woolen blankets, and made from apron scraps, housedress scraps, men's shirts, even tablecloths, and were never thrown in a washing machine (wringer type then), and to pay to bring something like that to a cleaners, was unheard of. We're all products of our upbringing. I saw my mother hang them over the line on windy, sunny days, and I did the same. The new comforters that are on the market now are much different from the heavy home made quilts I speak of, and I suppose the care of them might be looked at differently.
Washer has stopped spinning, so I'll get that thrown in the dryer. Off to a good start to the day anyway, it won't be a wasted one.
