Tuesday was one of the most productive days I've recently had. My accomplishments truly astonished me. I know I'll not remember everything, but here's to a good try.
I reorganized the pantry. I know it was done a few months ago, but I'm also realizing that this will be an ongoing project.
I scrubbed down the kitchen counters, then polished them with Jubilee polish. This is a product from the 1960's I was happy to find on amazon.com Just a small dab on a clean cloth and the counter surface is protected from scratches and cuts. Warning: Lots of 'elbow grease' is needed to bring it to a shine. To me, it's not only exercise, but worth the shine and good smell.
I washed the bedding and mattress pad. Then I vacuumed the rug and the mattress. With a damp cloth with tea tree oil on it, the mattress got a wipe down. The decorative pillows were next to get a wipe down, then the kick boards.
Anything on the counters was washed in hot soapy water after the microwave was cleaned.
In the evening I cut the grass. Three companies -so far - have said they'd fill in the grass with rocks so the ground would be level and I wouldn't have to worry about cutting grass. No one has shown up to complete the project. I guess when you want something done, a person must do it themselves.
When I look at my accomplishments on paper it doesn't look like much. But, the efforts took most of the day.
This morning I weeded the carrots and pulled three radishes up along with more parsley and spinach. What a feast I'll have for lunch. I also sprayed weeds in the rock area with vinegar.
As a side note, I apologize for no pictures yet. I'm having a difficult time finding where they went to on my new lap top. I'll keep trying to find them.
