Because we've started cultivating in preparation for seeding, which we hope to have done by Sunday, and are up to our necks in things to do (not including a bridal shower tonight and attending the pioneer museum's grand opening in town, a big deal because of the town's centennial this year, and to which Laura has been asked to wear her period dress to help the Mayor cut the cake); and because my shopping cart yesterday in 90-degree heat included a watermelon, three water pistols, a water sprinkler, Dawn dishwashing liquid, and a bottle of glycerin, I leave you with this -- much cheaper than the ready-made stuff and, along with a box of Popsicles, guaranteed to make you universally beloved by small fry -- and hope to see you on the other side.

Bubble Formula

2/3 cup Dawn or Joy dishwashing liquid
1 gallon water
2 or 3 tablespoons of glycerin

Mix gently, and let the children loose with it.
