Hung Out To Dry or Die

Yep my brand of laundry detergent is 'hung out to die'

So a few weeks ago, on Feb 6th to be exact I bought this detergent.
It had been awhile since I've bought powder but there wasn't any
liquid on sale so I figured I would give it a try . . .

This particular box purchased at the Walmart neighborhood market just a few blocks away boasted 46 washings.
Since I was considering changing to powder to save I figured I would just check it out.  And guess what I found!  Well I got 28 washings.  Now I realize it is possible I missed a couple but 10. 
And, to make it worse I didn't always measure the scoop to the full mark.  

Did you notice this one is advertised at $6.99 each.  At Walmart
it was $4.99.  Boy am I glad I didn't pay $6.99
Our local 4 News has a segment called "Deal or Dude" where the test product suggested by viewers. 
Well in my scientific experiment this one was a dude. 
I know we're all trying to save money these
days so you might give it a try and check out just how many washings your getting from your detergent.
I am interested in knowing what kind you use.  How much do you spend?
BTW the next vacation post coming soon...Just taking a break to do laundry.

Vacation Log Day 3/Cabin Fever

We've had such a long winter it has certainly been easy to have
that feeling . . .
Being a native Texan snow isn't the norm.  We have to spend our
vacations in places like Colorado if we want to enjoy a little of the white stuff. 

Yep I have been havin' Cabin Fever.

 I bet I had you goin' thinking I was already bored on my vacation.

 Nope. No way.  Not in a million years.  But I do have Cabin Fever.

This kind . . .

 I've been in my sewing room . . .
 Making these cool Log Cabin blocks.  Do you see anything special
about them? 

These blocks are half browns and half mixed colors.  I am having the most fun piecing these.  I am on a mission to empty my scrap bin. 

These new blocks will be a complementing quilted throw that will go with the King Size Log Cabin that is waiting in storage for me
to quilt.  I posted about this one here. 

Since our move I haven't been able to find it.  So I have resorted to emptying that scrap bin. 

So, for me since I can't go here for my vacation . . .
I'll do the next best thing . . .


Now that's a vacation!

Vacation Day 1 Agenda

I thought about writing this post last night after my last post but
I'm on vacation so I didn't LOL
Enjoy I am!

A few plans for the next few days . . .
Maybe a little snoring . . .

Thankfully no neon light shinning in the window to keep me awake . . .
Awe . . . (big sigh) . . .

And no Si screaming to meet at 5:30! 
10:00 maybe the jury is out on that one!
