I have been really enjoying getting my daily updates for discounted/free books from https://www.bookbub.com/home/
I have gotten several free books so far and my favorite has been "Amid the Shadows" by Michael Grumley. If you like Dan Brown's type of writing, you will really like this book.

So, I've been living on my own for 25 years now and it never ceases to amaze me that I still am learning how to clean. Today I wanted to make ice tea and the water wasn't coming out of the valve. After further looking, I saw the valve is able to come off. I took it apart and behold I found why the water wasn't coming out. It was gross...clogged. I have scrubbed and cleaned this pitcher! I run soapy water through it. I guess it is not enough. I'm now passing along my advice!

Recipe for simple syrup
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Bring to a boil in a sauce pan until sugar is dissolved. Let cool.
I used a Tupperware container with a lid. Pour the cooled simple syrup into the container. Add 2 cups of liquid of your choosing. I used 1 cup lemon juice and 1 cup orange juice. You could do all lemon or all orange. You could purée strawberries and add as well. If you are off the the measurement of the liquid, no worries, it still turns out great. Stir ingredients together. Put on lid and freeze.

I always see these copper molds in garage sales and thought of a cute way to make a flower pot out of them. I drilled 3 holes in the bottom of the jello mold for drainage. I spray painted the outside with a lime green color and filled with Hens and Chicks!
Here is the link how to make them...

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought I would make it for the kids at school where I work. It turned out really well and molds nicely, however I thought it would be a bit messy.
Directions: mix 8 cups all purpose flour and 1 cup baby oil in a large bowl. That's it! I put it in a plastic shoebox container. If I were giving to my kids, I would put down a vinyl tablecloth, and pour the sand on top to play with it. Outdoors of course!!
