So, with the current world situation – corona virus running rampant – it makes sense to stay in. That’s good for your pocketbook and bad for your sense of adventure. I am an introvert, so I’ve been training for this my whole life. I have books and food and family and cats to keep me company.
With that comes a renewed desire to clean all the things. Just in case. It’s Spring; Spring cleaning time has come with renewed purpose this year. So, remember to use vinegar and baking soda instead of harsh, expensive cleaning products. I will be making my own laundry detergent and dishwasher tabs, cleaning my tub with a paste of baking soda and Dawn dish soap, and boiling herbs and spices to make my house smell good.
This Spring I have plans. I will hang laundry when possible (time is at a premium right now with school, work, job search, and family), garden every day, make soap when I can, and definitely can my own jam and any other thing I have a surplus of, if I can figure out how to do it. My mother bought me a pressure canner a couple of years ago and it hasn’t been out of the box yet. I am really looking forward to trying it out. Pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce, jam, tomato soup, carrots, anything and everything I can can, I will. That’s a lot of tomatoes in my list, isn’t it? I hope I get a bumper crop this year.
