Ode to Laundry and Cinnamon Rolls

Yesterday I washed clothes and hung everything on the clothesline in 115 degree heat.  I think it took about 10 minutes per load to dry. 

Today I washed bedding, quilts, comforters and towels.  I hung everything on the line.  I let the towels get almost dry and then I tossed them in the dryer for about 10 minutes to fluff and get soft.

It is now 10:15 p.m. and I have made 3 dozen cinnamon rolls.  One pan is in the oven and 2 more are in the rising phase and will be ready to bake soon. 

All of this to say that I am bone tired and will post tomorrow what I was going to post today.

Tomorrow I want to give you my recipe for making a soft soap or actually my own face cleanser using a bar of Castile soap.  Castile soap is made with coconut oil and it is very good for your skin.   Also, I want to talk about corn.  Yes, corn.  Not just corn, but cornmeal, corn products and yes even high fructose corn syrup.  And I will also add a couple of my recipes for pie crust that "Debs" requested.

I know I started hanging clothes out at 7:00 and by the time one load was done in the washer the first was dry. But I did manage to get all the laundry done by 12:00 so that was good. Tomorrow it will just be to hot to do it.

I did wash some of the throw blankets tonight and will probably throw them on the line in the morning but that is it.
