It's Heating Up.


Double digit temperatures are such a cheap (but capricious) drug! I cannot believe how beautiful it is out there.

And that means I am compelled to make it beautiful in here, as well.
If I weren't already motivated enough, this show would do it. "How Clean Is Your House?" Do watch the British Episodes before the American. They're further back. (I actually can't stand the American shows.)

After watching a few episodes, I tackled this on Friday.

I made up my own cleaning solution based on their advice: baking soda, mixed with enough dishwashing liquid to form a thickish paste and a drop of warm water. Wearing my rubber gloves, I just smeared it on.

Positively brilliant. No nasty fumes. No horrible skin-eating spray dribbling down my arms. In fact, it's so safe, I could even welcome this little helper; my nephew.

Cleaning the oven?
Child's play.

A Spot for Beauty

The bug has hit me, hard.

I was even wasting time looking around at "crafty" blogs last night. I was brought up short. Take a look at this: Project Heidi. She's a homeschooling Mom of three young boys. She's not spending a ton of money. She's not particularly trendy--and I'm inspired.

I have let my own "spot for beauty" be a "spot for ugly" for far too long.

I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it. We leave for the annual Homeschooling conference next weekend. But I'm hoping I can do something!
