So, here's my cricket:
I picked up this cricket cage at a tag sale for $5 just because it was neat. Nice to have a use for it. =)
She seems to be OK with the cage,
Except when she's not. =D She does go back in when she's hungry, but right now, she's between the floor and the fireplace. =(
I've been giving her fresh spinach and fruit daily. Today she has a bit of my first ripe fig!
I noticed that the fig was starting to split, so I picked it. =)
Shared it with Erin, and cricket. It was so very sweet!
I've decided that I like figs after all. Fresh and ripe figs are nothing like grocery store figs! =D
The Mark Twain Library had it's annual book fair this weekend, I bought lots of books at great prices. Erin and I have joined Venture Crew, it's a co-ed Boy Scout troop whose focus is "high adventure". We're working on a scuba trip for next year, and Monday (the last day of the sale) was our first fundraiser. We start dive certification tomorrow!
Today, I made a new batch of liquid laundry soap.
You know the drill, shred the soap, mix the stuff, boil for a bit.
Clean up the mess.
Fill up my containers. Not bad, these four containers lasted three months. That means I bought enough Fells-Naptha to last me two years! I wonder if there's enough Borax and Washing Soda to last as long. It's looking pretty good, so far.
