Today I’ve been doing. Doing and doing. Doing loads of things. It’s sunny, and I’ve got all the windows open. There is laundry drying on the line, and the kitties are laying in sunny patches. I went for a walk in the park. I believed the doctor when she said that I don’t look 39. I bought a few trinkets at my favourite kitchen store. I checked on the veggie patch. Read some blogs. Cleaned, polished and wiped stuff.
Also, I’ve been freshening the mattresses and rugs around the house. I’m on a real cleaning kick these days. Wanna wee tip? Put about 1 cup of Borax (or baking soda) in a mason jar, and add a few drops of your favourite essential oil. I’ve been using lemongrass – but you might want lavender. Yah. Lavender would be good too. Okay, so then you’re going to want to give that jar a good shake. Shake and shake (don’t worry if there are a couple of lumpy bits). Sprinkle that freshening goodness all over your rug or mattress. Let it sit for an hour or two. Vacuum it up. Bask in your own glory. Kick up your feet and eat a celebratory chocolate bar whilst reading the issue of Martha Stewart that just arrived at your door.
