Spider Webs be Gone!
I've had a slight blurp in my blogging lately. There are many reasons for it. One, Hubby called me one day, and whisked me off for a half-day vacation day.
Two, I took a day for a Mom/Daughter day out. And it was
an out-of-town day of fun. It rained ( a lot) , but we had lots of indoor attractions, wineries, and flea markets to see.
The next day the sun came out.
Hubby whisked me off on a motorcycle ride. Actually two, in two days. While out on one ride, we ran into a biker we ride with and stole off on another ride with him, ha ha!
I think I needed it too. I was starting to get a bit, oh how should I put it? A bit less energetic? No kick in my day? No spunk?
Tulsi tea to the rescue. Bzzzztttt. Energy restored.
The master bath deep clean was started, but I think I was gravitating from room to room. It's so difficult to stick to one entire room with this family (kids!!). I am thankful for the e-cloths Mom gifted me. I had one cloth so dirty, I had to stop two different days to wash and dry it.
I cleaned every stinkin' nook and cranny, and then some.
Soap dishes wiped clean,
wall hangings dusted, light fixtures cleaned, cupboards cleaned out and wiped clean (inside and out), trash can bleached, spider webs removed...and I'm still not done in there. I have a few more drawers to dump out and wipe clean, the floor wall trim to wipe down, the floor grout to clean and I need to wipe down the door.
I finally removed the wine labels from the bottles I had sitting around as well. Those were put into my wine journal.
It's week two of using my homemade hair tonic. I am noticing my scalp itches now. I am hoping that means new hair growth.
