Homemaking Mondays: My tip for today is for the garbage disposal. I admit I don't like these things. They are just gross but if you have to have them you might as well use them and take care of them. You can buy special cleaners at the grocery store but these can get pricey. So if you are frugal like me buy a lemon or two. Slice one up turn your water on and the disposal on and toss a few pieces in the disposal and it will help to kill any bad odors and clean it out a bit. If you don't want to buy lemons use a solution of baking soda (1/2 cup) and the water, run through the disposal to clear odors and clean it. Make sure you use plenty of water to wash it all down.
Menu Plan Mondays:
Baked Chicken Parmesan
Crockpot Beef Casserole
Homemade Deep Dish Pizza
On Saturday I got all of the food storage buckets moved out of my craft room. Remember I had painted the little girls bedroom last week this is a shot from the door. The beds aren't made . Their Barbie houses that we made them Christmas of 2007 are at the foot of the beds.
Alan made these platforms for the mattresses to sit on, they have a lip so they don't slip. Here is an up-close picture of it. I still have to make the skirts for them so you can't see the buckets.
Then on Saturday Coco said we should paint E'lyses bedroom so we can get her bed made up too. So she and I painted then Kyle came over and helped too. This is E'lyses room. She picked out all the colors with Coco.
I want to make headboards for the beds but I am so thrilled to have these beds done. I still have curtains to buy or make, quilts to make for Faith and Gabby's beds, and book cases to find on sale for the bedrooms but they are looking good.
Most of these buckets weigh 45lbs. and I have to say thank you to Dallas, Mike (Dallas's friend), Kyle and Alan for moving the 54 buckets up the stairs and into the rooms. I also would like to thank Coco for the motivation to get this project crossed off my long list. And Alan for all his hard work and my silly ideas. Now we need to start on the floor to ceiling shelves for can food storage in my craft room. he he
After working all day Saturdayday I got really sick with a major temperature and feeling awful. I was so sick I slept till 10:57 Sunday morning. Normally I am up by 5 or 5:30 on the weekends. I only woke up because E'lyse was knocking on my door. I slept a good portion of Sunday. Not sure if I have an inner or outer ear infection. I have symptoms of both so I have two antibiotics for my ears one for inner and the other for outer, I just want to get better. I am still tired today but I have so much to get done so I will work and rest off and on throughout the day.
Have a great Monday. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
