A nice Monday...

A very nice day here today..

I spent some time cleaning..which happens to be the typical Monday schedule anyhow around here...

After the weekend we typically clean the bathrooms and vacuum and mop the house.

Today I vacuumed... then to the mop water I added some Palmolive dish soap, some vinegar, and since I had discovered that I had some leftover scented oil in a "Rain" scent..added that to the mop water as well.

Through the whole house I went..adding a lovely "Rain" smell.

It does, and did smell nice and refreshing. The vinegar smell quickly goes away...and is alot cheaper to use than other cleaners.

This afternoon oldest daughter and I made a run to the grocery store..needed to get milk, bread, and some fruit and a few other items....and strawberries were on sale..can't ever resist strawberries on sale..ha.

It's always nice to spend mother/daughter time together.Also made a run to the post office this afternoon.

I have a casserole in the oven is baked rigatoni..that has a nice tomato sauce that I added 2 fresh large tomatoes chopped and about a tablespoon of basil to..and a container of ricotta cheese, then about a cup and a half of Italian 6 cheese blend over the top...yum.

For veggies we will have steamed broccoli and a pea and mini corn blend.


The pet ducks are doing very more limp in the male at all. In fact he struts and runs around every where as if nothing ever was wrong..yay! I like that he has healed up just fine..and that all is well.


Oh my..the sign business has been doing well lately...such a blessing..we have been praying about things..and what to do...and it honestly looks like things are steering towards going into the business full time...Time will tell...but so far things are definitely looking better.


Here's hoping that you all have had a very nice Monday.


p.s.....I will be adding some more home education topics in the next few days.
