A few warmer days but it's still winter!
Taking a few minutes to just chill. Actually my head is spinning.
A ton to do.
The Cowboy is going on Social Security and working less. That's a huge lifestyle change.
Planning a spring wedding.
My mother is in hospital.
On The Menu
Monday- Hamburgers, Cole Slaw(left over from Sunday) Pinto's from freezer
Tuesday - Quinia, Chicken/Kale Ravioli, Ceasar Salad, Bread
and some leftover spaghetti in case the Cowboy can't choke down the Ravioli
Wednesday -Clam Chowder, Homemade Sub Sandwiches
Thursday - Roast w/Potatoes and Carrots, Green Beans
Friday - Coconut Shrimp, Rice Pilaf, oven Roasted Veggies
And last weeks menu- Was a complete bust. My mother is in the hospital. I/we ate out every night!
I've been struggling with how to do everything I want in the veggie garden. With a very small budget. Very little time. And even less energy I have been struggling with what to do. And 10'x10'
of pea gravel to remove. I've already removed about that much.
I have a great plot edged in landscape timbers. The problem is even though I've removed that gravel it is extremely hard to get it all out. So I can't use a tiller.
I saw this on pinterest and I think I have found a solution to my problems!
This is a cool way to prepare your plot for planting. The post has great detail. Click here.
I already mentioned my list because it is what I am thinking about.
This was a great post with great tips. Go over and read the post

Today we are going to be talking about cleaning carpet on stairs.
If you missed part 1 A Housekeepers Guider to Vacuums click here.
I do not claim to be an expert. But I clean houses for a living and in these posts I am just sharing my opinions on what works for me.
Let's talk about stairs with carpet.
Thankfully I only have 1 house currently that has carpeted stairs. There was a time I was doing stairs daily!
And, I think that these 2 suggestions are much more effect and clean your stairs better than any of the vacuums that are currently available.
I thought the advertisement for the carpet sweeper was interesting.
Dirt Devil. I am sure other brands have a model that is more like a regular vacuum like this . . .
I have this model mine is a few years old. Although it does an excellent job I like the smaller bagless model because of the pointed edge. It doesn't have the rolling beater bar like the one with the cord. But I like it because it will get into the crevices.
The smaller cordless version is even easy enough for a child to use.
The only negative is you have to keep it plugged in and charged.
But your only using it for a very few minutes so it is great for a stair case.
So maybe your thinking these are great options but . . .
