Did you ever?

   

Did you ever write a post and hit the publish button-- thinking it was Friday and your post was going to go out in your feed for Saturday?


... And then wake up the next day only to realize It's Friday?

 

question


No?

Ok well, forget that.

 
So tonight we hit the trail and headed on over to the next town- we had supper and went shopping afterwards. 

Did you ever go into a store and feel like you shopped every department?

We bought a

  • new water filter for the kitchen tap. It didn’t fit and now I have to return it.
  • potting soil, bird feeders, wooden dowels, various assortment of pool chemicals  and CONTRACTOR sized trash bags
  • rit-dye… in a very comforting chocolate brown.
  • DISH SOAP
  • and POP-SICLES!!


The only thing we didn't get on the list was essential oil. I’m looking for lavender or something like that to go in my laundry soap.  I’ve never added scent—but think I might like it.  Did you ever add scent to your homemade laundry soap?


Did you ever check your list with the contents of the buggy; and think we should probably pay and get going before security stops us and we have to sign a Patriot Act and sworn affidavit... OR sit there while they do a background check on us?

Sometimes-- a homesteader’s shopping list just looks suspicious… if not down right curious!

Did you ever think that?

Ha ha, funny post. And yes, once I posted on a Tuesday, and had thought it was Monday.

Yes, when I asked about purchasing lye at the farm supply store they acted like I was making meth. I just wanted to look into making soap,

I seem to never know what day of the week it is anymore! I can't tell you how many times I am absolutely sure it's Thursday and...it's Wednesday.

Oh yes....the posting on the wrong day has happened to me several times... lol.
I have never made my own soap, however I think more and more people are doing this. do you have a good recipe? I need to try this...especially since the cost of soap is so ridiculous.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one!
I'm testing this to see if perhaps you might get this via email.
You're my guinea pig! 😉

The popsicles are what would get you in trouble... I have to count backwards most day of the week to keep track. If I didn't have my inbox staring me in the face each day, I'd surely loose track!

Ha ha...Last week everyone I talked with thought it was later in the week than it actually was! I've never made my own laundry soap, but the one I use (Meyers) is lavender scented.
