garbage juice

grey plastic bucket

Yesterday when I was bagging up my kitchen garbage to take out, I spilled garbage juice all over my work pants and wool socks. Nasty. I immediately took them off and soaked them in a bucket of water with a few glugs of vinegar added, to help deodorize them. I’ll be laundering them today…

First thing in the morning (after sleeping in a little) I did yoga for the first time in a couple of weeks, and of course the boys had to join me on the kitchen floor. This is pettingcatasana

Later my little guy curled up for a nap on my lap while I worked at the computer.

laundry hack using safety pins

safety pins

When I had to take my cats to the vet last weekend, they were given charcoal to help absorb the poison from the lilies. One of the cats later threw up some of the charcoal in his litter, and then walked in it… and then walked across my bed. I got charcoal on my duvet cover, and just washed it yesterday.

Here’s a little laundry hack for when you have multiple stains on something large like a sheet or duvet cover: With the item spread flat (on the floor or a bed), use safety pins to mark each individual stain. Afterwards you can easily find the stains again by locating all the safety pins, and removing each one after you’ve treated the stain.

i spilled these blueberries all over the supermarket floor

blueberries in bowl on kitchen counter

I spilled these blueberries yesterday morning all over the supermarket floor while I was grocery shopping. I bought them and brought them home anyhow (I hate waste), and disinfected them by soaking them first in vinegar (straight, not diluted) and then in 3% hydrogen peroxide. This food disinfection technique is supposed to be as good as chlorine bleach.

Shortly after this photo was taken I ate the blueberries, and have suffered no ill effects – so I guess I could say it works. Ish.

Just some random kitchen photos from this past weekend. I feel like I’ve had a bit of a dry spell, photography-wise, but that may be changing…

I appreciate clean dishes and local fruit and the light in my kitchen.
