Silly Putty Stuff







Hey there! Scarlett came over a few days ago and we made silly putty! It was a lot of fun. Some of the stuff we made was really stretchy! LOL (See last picture!) we took some and slowly started stretching it! It got soo long! It was a ton of fun!

Here's the recipe in case any of you want to try it!

4 cups water
2 tsp.s 20 Mule Borax
mix together in bowl

2-3 Tbsp. liquid school glue (or more if you want more but you don't need a lot)
Food coloring!!! (Whatever color you want, but I suggest not mixing colors unless you want to end up with brown)
Mix the food coloring with the glue thoroughly. Pour glue mixture into the Borax water and then use your hands to mix the glue stuff together. (Keep it in the water.) When it finally sticks together, take it out and have fun! We like to keep it in Easter Eggs, but whatever you want would work.Plastic bags etc. (Warning: After a while ((a week or two, maybe three)) the putty will get very sticky and gooey, and will make a big mess! At that point it simply needs to be thrown out!)

Today I took some pictures of our newish plants. They are doing so well! We planted a Bell Pepper, a Basil Plant, and a three Zucchini plants, and a tomato. A few times I have been worried about the Bell Pepper, but it is doing okay now.

Lately

Hey there everybody,
Just though I'd write about what's been happening here lately. My story has been coming along nicely (Preview of it is in an earlier post.) I'm on Chapter 12. And the Bell Pepper, Basil, tomato, and zucchini we planted are all growing well. There is a tiny green tomato(just a little bigger then a pea, that is growing. The Camellia we planted some time last year is starting to look a little less dead, and actually is growing some new leaves. Holly and I are very near done with school for the year. I'm almost finished with the Algebra 1/2 book, and General science, and then I'll basically be done for the school year. I hope to do a lot of cooking, sewing and writing this summer. I want to finish up some stories that I've started, and sewing projects I never finished. Then I could always use a little more cooking experience, and I'd like to try some new recipes. Pray that nobody gets food poisoning or anything. :P
This past Saturday was the Rest For Weary Home School Moms that our Moms hosted. Scarlett Holly and I mainly went to help serve food. Everybody brought something for lunch, and the recipe for whatever they brought. I had a recipi on here, but it got all scrabled up when I posted it so I took it off sorry.
All for now!

Mulch Pile!!!!!


Yo! I've been keeping a mulch pile in the back yard way out behind the shed. It's got lots o' dirt, lot o' rotting veggies, and lots o' fruit flies. :P But I've been having fun doing it. John thinks it's disgusting, and I think that he expects me to get sick from going out there every day to dump stuff. :)
