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.
