lather up and get clean
a simple routine that we take for granted...
I am so grateful for indoor plumbing and hot water
my great grandmother had to haul and heat water so she could bathe by the stove
a porcelain jug and a basin filled with hot water were used...
Can you imagine what that would be like?
Just thinking about the work involved boggles the mind!
I love soaps...
and recently discovered this gem of a bar in a local Garden Shop.
words that popped into my mind
gave off wafting scents of lavender
almost too pretty to open
I found myself sniffing the paper
several times in anticipation
before the purchase
I happily extend my seal of approval
if you have the opportunity to purchase a bar
run don't walk
you'll be glad that you did.
Why not add some scent and sensibility to your daily round...
guarantees this bar is going to be around for a long time
provided you have a soap dish for it to rest in.
I am an avid collector
here's the cupboard where they lie in wait for their chance to serve!
Goats milk soap by Camus
is the soap for every day use
in The Humble Bungalow shower
I buy it in bulk from Costco
I live about a 45 minute drive from the local big box stores
so I do not go often
I did, however, go this week
oh and the line ups are long
and people have their carts piled so high
with all manner of merchandise...
my head spins at the thought!
I found some polished cotton Buffalo cargo pants in grey
and they fit perfectly!
my sister shared a tip with me when there are no change rooms...
take the waistband and wrap it around your neck and if it meets without being too tight
they will fit
I know it sounds odd
but so far it has worked for me!
great for casual outings
to wear while doing heavy lifting required by the inventory in the library
stacking hundreds of textbooks in the book room
My question is...
what do you put in the pockets of cargo pants?
there are pockets front, back, and center!
For now they will remain empty...
