Productive evening - lemincello, lemonade, frozen juice and firestarters!

I killed it today- started with cleaning gutters with my 9 year old helping me.

She was tickled pink to be able to go out on the roof afterwards for retrieving a broom that she threw onto the roof.

And, I wish my whole roof was accessible from the truck like over our garage:

Now to let it sit until Christmas.

After that, to not waste the 15 lemons, I squeezed them all. I made a quart of lemonade (Paula Deen's recipe) and froze five 4-ounce containers of lemon juice. The remainder of the lemons are being used for garbage disposal (froze 4 baggies of lemon rinds for future freshening of the disposal).

And then I prepared a set of firestarters with old wax that the wife doesn't even remembering buying many years ago.

Just added more cedar chips and wax from candles that wifey found.

My first bath soaked thru the one carton. I cut the excess off and remelted it and then added the extra right candles wife found.

I think I want to next time- but I want to get a cupcake pan dedicated to it. I'm too messy to mix wax and food.

The leak out wasn't too bad of a problem. I had these on double-layers of scrap paper with a cookie sheet under them. There wasn't going to be a mess I had to clean up! I think honestly, I just got the melted wax too hot.
