A Bit of an Update

Hi everyone. Things have been so crazy around here. Mom still has her cast on, but now it is a walking cast. She doesn't like it. She says it's a lot wider and heavier. It won't come off for 8 weeks. She's a bit miffed about it.

Brandon is busy. He still hasn't found out about his Apprenticeship, so it's probably on hold until at least January. It's far too late now for him to apply for a Student Loan for September. He's in no great rush, so I guess that's okay.

I found a great new way to clean. Take a small pail of hot water, add a 1/2 cup of baking soda and a 1/2 cup of peroxide. It cleans like a charm and makes the house smell great.

The weather here was sunny today but a bit on the chilly side with the wind. Tomorrow is going to be a little warmer and then Friday it's to be cold. We are below seasonable temperatures here but it sure didn't feel like it in the upstairs on Monday night. It was almost 90F...not a good sleeping temperature. I remember last summer it was 110F up here some nights and not much better through the day. Our power bill was atrocious because we had two window air conditioners going 24 hours a day.

That's about all the news for now. I've been really busy with my Etsy shop, Mom & Brandon. I miss all of my blogging buddies and hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Ours was quiet, but good.

  2. Glad you had a nice Easter and things are going well. Hope your Mom gets accustomed to that cast.
    Thanks for the cleaning tip. I love homemade cleaning recipes!

  3. We too had a quite Easter plus Mimi's 95th birthday. It was the smallest number (six) that I have ever cooked for at any holiday lately. My BIL, my sister's husband died on the 16th at the age of 67. He had COPD so bad that doctors could not operate to clear his kidneys of the stones, so his kidneys shut down on him. Please put my sister Jean and her only child Juanita in your prayers. Thanks for the update. Facebook is so social that I do not put too many details on there. Peace

  6. Hi Mary. Hope you are doing well? I have been blogging some this week and I am really enjoying it again. I usually do my blogging in the later afternoon or early evening after I finish my supper. Take care my friend and hope to see you soon.

  7. Hello Mary. Hope this finds you doing good. I just recently started back blogging again. It's been a hectic week around here and a rainy and much cooler one also. How's the weather up in Canada? Take care my friend and hope to see you soon.
