I’m so impressed with my productivity this evening!

Tonight I made Luna some dog treats using pumpkin puree that I made myself last week and froze several bags of the puree for later use. I got the recipe HERE. Except I didn’t have rice flour so I used whole wheat flour. I did have to use a lot more flour than the 2.5 cups called for. So far she hasn’t refused them. We’ll see if she gets excited about them i the next few days.

I don’t have a bone cookie cutter so ours are just rectangles.

THEN, I made a new batch of laundry soap.  We have been out for a few days and the laundry was piling up so I really had to get some soap made. I use the powder because the liquid takes up a lot more storage space. This was my second batch. I really loved the first batch I made and thought it did a great job at cleaning our clothes.  I used a free Purex gel tablet the other day since I was out of my soap day and I thought the smell of the clean laundry was overpowering. I had gotten so used to our laundry just smelling nice and clean.  This time I used THIS recipe and added a 1/2 cup of OxyClean for a stain fighter.  It only made enough to fill one mason jar so I’ll need to make some more sooner than last time as I guess I doubled the batch then and ended up with two jars.

This is the recipe I used this time

I’m taking it as a good sign that I had enough energy to do TWO projects after work today! I was really congested from allergies today but the nausea was notably lower. Hopefully my energy levels will be returning soon and I’ll be able to dig in and get a lot of stuff done!
