Wednesday's This and That

Happy Wednesday. I was reading Susan's Blog, about her Monday Morning Ritual, and it totally inspired me. I woke up this morning filled my sink with hot soapy water, added a little bleach--and then added a touch of my lavendar fabric softener to make it smell so pretty. I didn't have any Meyer's soap, like Susan uses--but trust me, it is now on my shopping list. I put together my own little clean smelling cleaner---->

I wiped down my whole kitchen--appliances too

Here is everything getting moved around. EWWW, look at my dirty towel--yuck. My kitchen is just sparkling and smelling soooo good.

I worked hard in the kitchen today--and then I vacuumed the stairs, and scrubbed my shower----- Little Kevin is sooo good, it is easy to get things done with him--the only problem is he is just so fun to hold, I want to hold him all the time--and trust me, I do---but in between playing with my kids, work must be done.

All the homeschooling tours you all are doing are so fun to read, and the pictures are awesome. I have not made it back to Wal-Mart--BUT, Albertson's is now having the same sale, and I really need to go to the grocery store--so if some filler paper and notebooks fall into my cart--oops..LOL. I was very busy yesterday, Grandma had a Doctor's appointment, and she had a list of places she had to go too--so we had a busy but wonderful day. I bought some English Muffins and made Alexis a mini pizza on them--SHE LOVED THEM--so I am going to do a post on how I make them --they really are good:) Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful evening xoxox
