Hello Readers! I've been away on a marvelous trip to Italy for a couple of weeks and so, haven't been blogging. I'll be jumping back in, but do have some catch up around here to do. Took me close to an hour earlier today to open and sort the mail. Am always amazed how much mail you get...even if you've got bills set up for automatic payment and do things on line. Once I got done with that, I had several inches of paper to put in the re-cycle bin.
The picture above is yet another idea of ways to recycle your paper toilet paper rolls. You're suppose to collect your lint from the dryer, and stuff the lint into the roll (tightly). One set of directions says to melt wax and pour in while the roll is standing up. Wait for it to cool, and flip over and pour wax into the other side. Again let it cool and store in a zip lock bag. The gentleman who has video's out there telling you this, says they'll burn about 20 minutes...that's certainly enough time to get a fire going inside or out in your fireplace and or while camping.
**Also found a video from a woman who didn't add the wax (assume her's wouldn't burn as long). She the wrap the rolls with newspaper (a way to recycle it as well), and using twistie's that she had plenty of wrap the two ends.
There's been no more knitting since the last post, so no new pictures to show you there.
Recently read this book on my Kindle while aboard the plane making my way to and from Italy. Read part on the way over and finished on the way back. Everytime I thought it would be a story of human triumph......Bothersome because it's a true story. I can't decide if I liked it...I don't generally like things that are bothersome and unresolved. I'm trying to decide if I'll read the 2nd book called Amelia's Destiny.
I'll be updating my travel blog soon with information, pictures etc from my recent two week trip to Italy. Swing by for a visit, Traveling Suitcase
