|I Love Pumpkins!|
And, here is a closer look at our messy little mantle.

At the end of my last blog post I mentioned that I have been doing laundry in the tub. We have laundry hook ups here in our house, but we are saving up to actually buy the washer and drier. I was going to a laundromat in town every couple of days but it just wasn't worth the cost. Each small load in the washer cost $2.50! I was so outraged at the cost that I would just bring the clothes home and hang them up to dry. On my last trip to the laundromat there was a man obviously on drugs (or not all there mentally) throwing boxes around and yelling at everyone. I am scared that someone will steal my clothes, so I always sit inside (so I got yelled at). After this experience I told Emad that I am no longer going back. So I did some research online and learned that you can do laundry at home for a fraction of the cost and much more better for the environment. I am waiting to receive my mobile washer (basically a plunger), but in the meantime I have been stomping on my clothes to get them clean.
|My clothes are in the bucket!|
Warning: Washing clothes by hand (or feet) is a very good workout, and should only be attempted by those willing to haul around a super heavy bucket full of clothes and water!In other news, my desk area is becoming much more homey!
Next time I will show you all the arts and crafts I have been doing lately.
