Rosepoint Reviews May Recap–Hello June!

Rosepoint Reviews - May Recap

My claim to fame in May will be that I mastered the instructions for creating a mask out of one of the CE’s pair of cotton socks. No sewing, no pipe cleaners, no rubber string around the ears. There are apparently a number of different and unique varieties of no-sew masks and at least I can breathe with this one (which probably tells me how effective it is). I do not have, however, any denim or canvas, in my remnant box supposedly the most effective DIY mask material. Perhaps you’ve created your own designer mask and if it’s a no-sew version, I’m always open to suggestions.

May is normally the month here in NWI where we sun-starved and chilly folks are ready to grab the shovel and seeds. But it’s been a very slow spring and we’ve literally gone from jackets to tank tops in a couple days–and back again. I did get some seeds in and for Mother’s Day treated to our local nurseries that have opened in limited capacity, so what didn’t manage to cling to the soil that last rain deluge was augmented with a few 2″ starts. Since putting Handsome Husband on a vegetarian diet, we are eating a LOT of veggies and salads around here.

I’ll be happy with fifteen reviews in May, four of which were contributed by that Vicarious Blogger, the CE. You’d think all that help would free me up for more reading, but nay. I spent the time trying to save the garden–several times–hence the time to listen to those audiobooks!

Such a dark, tragic period in our country right now and around the world. I hope that wherever you are, you continue to stay safe in the face of CoVid19 and are finding creative ways to cope. Working in my garden(s) and your likes and comments always make my day. And always, thank you new followers!

Stay safe!

Stay Smart, Safe, Home

    1. i saw it in one of my AARP bulletins (dated May 23 – http://www.aarp.org). they suggest using an athletic ankle sock (tight weave-cotton). and after struggling with one of the CE’s white cotton socks, i see why ANKLE sock. just a pair of scissors. it took me one sock before i figured out how to make it fit. then went shopping for athletic ankle socks. yeah, right. could buy the masks cheaper. in the meantime, now i see there is another suggestion (but where did i leave THOSE directions??!) for a bandanna, folded. really the only thing you need are the rubber hair bands. okay, so out i went with those on today’s grocery list. i have a couple great motorcycle bandannas i thought i’d use. i’ll let you know if i can remember how to fold it. 🙂
