Saturday Happenings...

Today was a beautiful stormy/rainy day
which we spent, mostly, indoors.
I was glad that we had gone grocery shopping
a few days ago to pick up some things for chemistry,
so I was able to work in my 'lab'.
(a.k.a - the kitchen)
I did a Chemistry experiment of testing acids and bases.
Here I am with my supplies:
Sorry if the photos seem a little dark.
I couldn't expose my litmus paper to light.
Here are the test tubes I filled from my experiments...
The blue foamy one is shavings of soap dissolved in water,
and the other one is Coke.
The blue one is toilet bowl cleaner
and the white one is lye crystals dissolved in water.
I had a lot of fun putting my knowledge of acids and bases
to the test in those experiments!
I'm excited that I'm nearly done with my Chemistry
then I'll be starting Advanced Chemistry. I can't wait!
I also sewed a new dress today.
Here's the material and completed project...
I was glad to be able to finish it before tomorrow
so that I could wear it to church.
I hope you all have a great Lord's Day.

Hey! I just wanted to say pray for us because we have the LCF today and we (our family), is going to be singing. We started a singing group about with our family and we have only sang 2 times. So, and there will be est. 150 people there, so...we have only sang with about 30-40 people in the congregation! I'm nervous! I'm making some chocolate brownies with caramel icing. Oh well, it looks like you like Chemistry. I love the new dress!


Oh well, Love ya Sis,

Brittany

Ally, you are quite a gal!!! The dress is beautiful. Is it a fairly easy pattern that it doesnt take you too long, or have you just done it a few times that now its easy? Chemistry is a hard one and I'm very glad to here that you enjoy it.
Have a great day and good luck with your experiments!!
PS. thats the same toilet cleaner I use :)

Ally,

I just received your package in the mail.
Thank you so much. You are so kind, sweet, and thoughtful.

I love the crocheted purse. You are very talented. I told my husband now I'm going to have to go out and buy a new orange or yellow shirt to go with my new purse. He just grinned. He knows how I like to shop.
Thank you for the book marker with the bible verse on it. I love to read..so I am already using it in the current book that I am reading.

Thanks again so much.

Please come back and visit my blog anytime you like.

Hugs, Lori

That looks ike fun Ally! Where can you find litmus paper? I haven't been able to find any, so I use vinegar instead. lol, I use that toilet bowl cleaner too!
I love the dress! The fabric is so pretty, and it fits so well too! What pattern did you use? I am just starting to sew, and made two skirts for myself this week.
