Sunday, Rainy Sunday

It’s spring (finally)! Here in Philly that means warmer temps, open windows, daffodils, and rain instead of snow.

Today is one of those stay-inside-nap-all-day kind of rainy days. Dr. J has today off from the MICU and we’re (trying) to take advantage of a full 24 hours together. We were able to check out a yummy little cafe down the street for breakfast and then went to a matinee showing (because when you can’t stay awake past 9 o’clock, that’s what you do) of the new Wes Anderson movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Now we’re back at home with time for a nice long nap (and some much needed loads of laundry).

Sweet Dreams!

Oh yeah, I retired my puffy winter coat for the season (fingers crossed for no more snow). Prior to putting it away I gave my down parka a much needed cleaning thanks to the instructions posted around the interwebs. I didn’t even take pictures because it was embarrassingly dirty. Now it is much cleaner with no dry cleaning required!

How to clean your puffy down winter coat:

Step 1: Spot clean extra dirty spots

Step 2: Throw in your washer and wash on “delicate” with “warm/warm” water and some mild laundry detergent

Step 3: Wash again on “delicate” with “warm/warm” water – this time no detergent!

Step 4: Throw in your dryer with three clean tennis balls and dry on low heat for about 2 hours

Voila! Clean re-puffed down winter coat!


Also, don’t try to make macarons on rainy days..

Nap time,
