Summer Cloth Pads

These are some of the pads I've made for the summer. I fell in love with the watermelon print fabric but even after several washings, it isn't as soft as the others. Check out what people have to say about DIY Cloth Pads over at

I'll be adding more pads to my Etsy shop really soon. I just bought more fabric this morning that I think will make some cool ones.

Blogging slump

I don't know why, but I can't seem to find anything interesting to blog about. On the home front, I'm taking my little one back home to Hawaii in July to help care for my mom after she has surgery. I'm praying that it is uncomplicated and she has a speedy recovery.

What am I watching? You Are What You Eat on BBC America. OMG! This show is addicting. Gillian is fabulous in her pit bull, drill sargeant, tactless way. Who would have thought a show where they inspect people's poo would make for good TV? I went to Amazon last night and purchased two of her books. So far from watching her show, I've concluded that I might have a zinc deficiency based on the dots on my tongue. I'll read up more on the subject when I get the books. I had a chat with my husband last night about changing our family diet to include more vegetarian meals and he sounded a bit supportive. He just said not to make anything with peas, cooked carrots and asparagus. He has been surprising me a lot lately. I mentioned my interest in colon cleansing to him recently and he goes and buys us each a 3-month cleansing program called Colonix. That was a shock. Nornally when I talk to him about things like this, he rolls his eyes at me. I think he went to the site and read up on the program for himself. He started two weeks ago. I started the same day he did but got really sick the next day with tonsillitis, so I decided to wait until I was well again before starting. I restarted the program today. The fiber tastes horrible! Metamucil tastes better.

What am I reading? I'm reading my second Laura Childs book, The Jasmine Moon Murder from her Tea Shop Mystery series. I'm also reading Brenda Watson's The Fiber 35 Diet. All this interest in fiber and colon cleansing! Hmmm.
