I woke up this morning and went and picked up my groceries order, I ordered extra groceries for today because I ran out of toilet paper last night so I am thankful that I have the ability to order things like toilet paper for pick up but that’s not my thankful or new thing post for today.
After I got home from picking up my groceries I had laundry on my Due reminder app for today. I put the first load in and put in a scope of my laundry detergent. Had this been “the before times” I would not have had enough laundry detergent for all of my laundry (at least 4 loads), being the age of COVID I had enough to do my two loads of laundry. For the past several years I have made my own laundry detergent so I was not concerned that I was going to have to make another groceries trip, it is considerably cheaper to make my own laundry detergent then it is to buy it (something like 15 cents to the dollar of premade stuff). Seeing as how laundry detergent isn’t the new thing, I decided that my new thing would be doubling the recipe. I thought the recipe made just a little less then 25% of my ice cream bucket so doubling it would make close to 50% of a bucket. This recipe happens to be written in weights (which I much prefer but that is neither here nor there), I didn’t have it all mapped in my mind so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out the recipe actually made a little less then 50% of a ice cream bucket (close to 2 litres) so I now have a ice cream bucket close to 90% full. I am thankful that my ability to eyeball the volume of a ice cream bucket is way off!
