My dear friend Dawn who lives in Hawaii sent me some delicious teas that she made. One of them being Lilikoi (Passion Fruit). Its such a sweet, dark tea. When my husband and I got married we were given his late grandma's China set. I have a few select pieces displayed right now.

Its a beautiful set, and I hope one day I can display them all. Yesterday afternoon I enjoyed a cup of Lilikoi tea in one of the tea cups.

Also today my stepdad gave us a cantalope. I cut it up tonight so my CJ could have some with his supper. I put some in a bowl to have for my mommy time tonight as well.

In a recent comment, I was asked how I make my wool dryer balls. They are really simple to make. I used 2 skeins of Lion Brand 100% wool (do not use arylic as it will melt and cause a fire hazard). 1 skein makes one dryer ball.
Wind the whole skein into a ball and use a crochet hook to tug the loose end into the ball. Once you roll both skeins into a ball, put them in a pair of panty hose and tie it off. Wash them in the washer machine with a load of clothes on HOT and rinse in cold. Then dry in the dryer on hot. This will cause the wool to felt. Once they are felted they are ready to use! Just toss into the dryer everytime you dry a load of clothes.
This is a set I made. I store them right in the dryer so I never forget to put them in the dryer with my clothes.
