Purchases - everything is from Walmart this week
giant double pack of Lysol Wipes - these will last a long time, I like them for special cleaning like the computer, remotes, phones, etc.
bleach for laundry - all whites at our house get washed in hot water with bleach to kill any germs
1 loaf of bread
2 pounds white cheddar
20 pounds white sugar and 6 pounds brown sugar - I did not pay attention to the details but I've heard about a possible U.S. sugar shortage coming - I heard it twice on the news and saw it once online. If there really is a shortage, sugar prices will rise. And if not, well, I have a big pantry and I don't think sugar spoils.
Meals this week
Tasty Lentil Tacos with Mexican rice and toppings
smoked chicken, oven fries and spinach with onions
a late breakfast after garage sales of biscuits, ham and eggs and OJ
a late lunch/early supper at Texas Roadhouse
coffee cake for breakfast
lunch - Pampered Chef Taco Ring and a big salad - we liked it so much that we ate some of the leftovers for supper too.
meatless marinara sauce with pasta, more salad
Baked chicken, squash, salad and cantaloupe

It is more expensive than many detergents but you don't have to use spot treatments or fabric softeners, so I don't think it really ends up costing much more.

Here is my progress on my postage stamp quilt - 800 hundred blocks sewn together so far. I think traditional postage stamp quilts might use a smaller piece, mine are 2 inches before sewing. And some of my seams my not match exactly, so if you are a quilt-perfectionist, you might not approve.
I am having fun making it and Baby Gavin seems to like it so far too.

Yes, I am still here - just busy with other stuff and not getting around to blogging.
I'm sure you all know about days like these.

These toys actually belonged a little girl and there were so many nice clothes at this sale, mothers were buying them by the armful.
