The topic: Finally started my spring cleaning


I figured windows and screens first. I love a clean window. And screen (note previous entry referring to mosquito remains). Pulled the ones off I could and scrubbed them with vinegar water.

I got a late start so I got the windows first that would be hit by the sun. I cut it really close on the windows on the west side of the house, as a matter of fact, I have to wait for the sun to go down to clean the inside of the family room window (I hate moving Miss Elizabeth, that's her favorite place in the house).

One of the reasons I got a late start is I wanted to get this piece of  Hewlett Packard color laser printer (2605dn) out of here. That was the biggest waste of money ever. I've never been happy with it, I didn't get it for everyday use and when I do use it the white background always looks filthy. The last time I tried it (last month), I was ready to take a hammer to it. Instead I pulled it out of its position on the printer stands this morning (headed to be wrapped in trash bags and stored in the rafters in the garage, safe since the cats can no longer get up there), moved the Epson R1900 over to where that was (it's shorter and opens up the room a little more) and moved the copy machine to where the Epson inkjet had been.

Then I got my Epson Perfection (what a name!) 4990 Photo scanner from it's storage place and put it where the copier had been. The cats used to lay on the copier (it was below the office window) and I wasn't really concerned about moving it. After all, they can lay on it where it is now, it just won't be in the sun (and it's a lot more accessible).

Well, Lorelei is laying on the scanner now. *lol*

I've got lots of old photos of cats who are at the rainbow bridge. And some photos my mom had saved (my dad used to have his own darkroom, but it didn't look like she saved too many of those photographs). Maybe now that it won't be a big production to run the scanner, I'll be more inclined to scan.

I need to wash the towels and covers I had on everything in here as well as all of the towels I used for the windows.

And this coming week, I hope to get the floors cleaned. And my bathtub. My bathtub and walls badly need to be scrubbed down.

I love clean windows!

Brian's doing stuff on his tractor, he washed it and waxed it this morning (another reason I wasn't working on the windows). He used the pressure washer. He got us Subway for lunch and I asked him to pick up a six pack of Miller Lite. I haven't had a beer in forever. Ever since my gallbladder surgery, alcohol doesn't seem to agree with me. He kind of balked (he doesn't drink beer), but he relented. When he came home, he had a twelve pack of Miller (no six packs!) and a twelve pack of Mike's Hard Lemonade, four different flavors.

Ah, summer.....

And clean windows.....

Hydrated lime gets rid of fleas, ants, mosquitoes, moles, fertilizes the yard.  I use it around all my animals and have never had a problem.  I hope you receive this email.  Also, acid reflux can be a lack of enough acid in your system.  Try some apple cider vinagar or some pickle juice.

Thanks, I’ll pass this on. As for the acid reflux, I think it’s more a bile dump from my liver since the gallbladder is gone and not there to process it. It’s slowly getting better.
