I started a wet bag a couple months ago. It was inspired by a conversation with a friend, who heard of someone making one out of a used shower curtain. Seemed like a great idea. Shower curtains are certainly not earth friendly, so throwing them away seems like such a bad idea, and I really didn't want to spend the money to order special PUL fabric for the lining of the bag.
I got sidetracked mid project, and didn't wander back to it until today. But now we have a great, reusable bag to put our wet diapers in! I hope the shower curtain holds up well. Only time and use will tell.
We have a lot of blueberry pushes on our property. The property borders a swamp on one side, and that makes for very happy blueberry bushes. They are the tree kind, so that makes for easy picking, as the ground variety can be tedious after an hour or so of standing on your head. Mom, Dad and I ventured out back to see if the berries dad and I scouted a few days ago, were now ripe. They were, at least some were. They have a fair number of red and green on there too, so we got there just at the right time. We picked a fair number of the blue berries, and will go back for more later.
I recently bought black rubber boots and I'm so glad I did, especially at a price of $12.95. They were intended for chicken/animal care, and I've used them for that, but they were brilliant when I wanted to reach the best berries, that required being up to my calves in water. I can't believe I am honestly excited about black rubber boots. I'm not the same girl I used to be, that's for sure.
I came home dry and happy with my little basket of berries! Husband made me some blueberry pancakes tonight. YUM!
