Loofah and Loafing

Last year we grew Loofah and I just got around rubbing the skin off the dried gourd and getting the seeds out.
 These are the seeds and the few loofah rings .  This year we will know what we are doing and I have high hopes for a big harvest.  I put these rings into a mold and cover them with soap for a luxury bath soap.  I think when I add one of my hemp or linen face cloths, I will have a nice spa set for sale this Fall!
Will is continuing his wool education!  He is a hands on kind of student!
Here he is during his PE class!  He bounces around just long enough for me to get washed and dressed in the morning!
 I think this was one of his favorite activities today!  He splashed up a storm!
 Now this is my favorite part of bath time-the snuggles!
He is ready for bed and goes down very quickly.  Isn't this a heart melter?!

 Now I will go about tp straighten up the house and then do some knitting before I crash .......


  1. Boy, I want to kiss those chubby cheeks! Do you think his parents would notice if you brought him with you to my house next week?! :)

    The loofah is very cool!

  2. he looks more like a "mouth on" than hands on wooltester to me:) if it tastes good it must be ok to knit with....
    I think you'll need a day or two of rest after a week with that fellow:)

  3. There is nothing better than clean baby smells and being a Grandmother. Enjoy these days, they pass by way to quickly.

  4. Loofahs look like cucumbers... I did not know that.

    Look at those big, beautiful eyes!!

    And, I have no idea you've been slepping hard when you go to bed at night.

  5. That photo of him snuggling after his bath melted my heart!

  6. My, you have been busy. Will is so cute and how great that he already loves wool.

I hoped to make 10 yesterday but I will make the other three today.  Nice to have the house deep cleaned--all corners tamed and the other sl...
