Mending Day

It is raining out this morning. I am thrilled that I don't need to water the garden today. I am also thrilled to get caught up on well needed housework.

After the long weekend we are back in the grove of homeschooling and as the girls work on their schoolwork I can repair the holes in the socks. I seem to have a large basket full of them, mostly mine!
My son-in-law to be ( next July, the date is set) is a drywaller. His winter coveralls, suspender clips broke. I have been all over to buy new ones, but I can't get any heavy or wide enough. I did find these.
Parachute clips, real heavy duty ones, and wide enough for his straps.I bought about 20cm of webbing to attach the one part of the strap, as he will no longer have a functional button.

Other then that I am cooking meals for this week.

Oh I wish it would rain here. I'm west of you. I think it just passes over us. Our rain barrels are almost empty.

I am so glad to see that other people still mend socks, too! Here, I get laughed at and asked, "Why do you bother with that. Just get some new ones." Ugh! It doesn't take long and saves a lot of money in the end. What is that you are using to mend yours on? I use an old light bulb, which are quickly disappearing from existence.

And that is so clever for fixing his strap!

I know what you mean about watering the garden. We did not get enough rain and I am watering ours. Glad you are able to get some indoor work done.

Thank you for adding your wonderful comment to my laundry soap post. I wanted to let you know that in the comments under it, I have added some tips for you on mixing the liquid type more smoothly and evenly.
Have a great day!

Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work?
I'm brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog
so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand
new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be
at the internet the easiest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed
even as people think about concerns that they just don't recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
