Cinco De Mayo



Tomorrow is May 5th OR
Cinco De Mayo.

For my husband this is a great day,
he could eat Mexican food every
day of the year! Me not so much.
I enjoy it but not EVERYDAY!

At school my classroom is having 
a Cinco De Mayo luncheon. IT's 
going to be yummy!

Here is our menu:

Queso with chips
Tacos with fixings
Brownies

Soda/water

Color Scheme:

Red, yellow and orange

Enjoy your Cinco De Mayo
whether at home or a 
favorite restaurant. 
LA! LA!

Spring Cleaning---Part 4 and 5



Thursday's Tip

For the Kitchen:


Stainless Steel Appliances

For streak free appliances,
use a soft cloth with vinegar
and wipe in the direction of 
the grain.

Toasters

For those stuck on pieces,
use a toothpick to dislodge
anything hanging around.

Stinky Garbage Disposal

Toss in a 1/2 orange or lemon,
turn on the disposal to grind 
up the rind now you have citrus 
smelling disposal. we do this
a lot. Some say it also helps
to sharpen the blade.

Office---Work or Home


Computer


Keyboard

*Mr Ken's biggest rule
Please do not eat or drink 
over the keyboard. Neither 
is good if something spilled.
Q-tips dipped in a small bit 
of rubbing alcohol can be 
used between the keys.

Monitor

Using equal parts vinegar to 
water and a microfiber cloth. 
Wipe the cool monitor to de 
smudge it.

Use sanitizing wipes to clean 

phones, tablets, cell phones
and remotes.

*For those of who don't know,

Mr. Ken lives and breathes 
computers at work each day.


Friday's Tip


Bedrooms

Use the dust first then vacuum
tip. 
Go through your closets and 
drawers,donate anything that
is not worn any longer.

My favorite:

To clean a ceiling fan-place an 
old pillowcase over each blade, 
wipe clean-all the dust from the 
blades stays in the case and 
doesn't flutter all over the place.
Take the pillowcase outside, shake 
out and throw in the laundry.

Hope you have enjoyed this series.

Happy Cleaning!!!

Spring Cleaning---Part 3



Wednesday's tip:


Cleaning Shortcuts--


Use less cleaner

To make window, wash 
and dish cleaners last longer
fill a spray bottle halfway with 
water then top off with your 
cleaner. Shake to mix.

Stop scrubbing

Before you clean the bathroom,
turn on the shower to HOT, 
close the door for a few minutes.
The steam will loosen grime or
mildew so it's quicker and easier 
to wipe clean.
For the microwave, fill a bowl with
water, heat up the water causing 
steam inside the microwave and 
then wipe clean.
Any other ideas???

While you are using the clock 

method to clean (see Monday's 
post) 

Speed clean like a Pro

Dust first--let the dust settle
Wipe down glass, mirrors 
and other surfaces 
Vacuum last

post for Part 2.

Spring Cleaning---Part 2



Tuesday's tip:

Did you know that 70 pounds 

of clothing is thrown away each 
year?

That would be a lot if we all 

threw away the clothes we 
didn't want anymore.

What do you do with yours?


We donate to thrift stores 

here that help others. 

ie: Salvation Army, Goodwill.

Redracks, Savers and Catholic
Charities.

This is a great time of year to 

go through your Spring/
Summer clothes and donate 
those items you won't be
wearing this season.

Sorry, I was under the "allergy 

umbrella" yesterday and didn't 
feel up to posting.


Stay tuned for part three, it will 

be posted separately, since I am 
having posting issues.

Addition: This is my 900th
post!!!! Wow, hard to believe.

Spring Cleaning ---Part 1



Hello!

This week we are going to have 

a series on Spring Cleaning.

I am sure that a lot of you have 

accomplished this already, at our 
house not so much. School takes 
a lot of me this time of year 
so we do "Summer cleaning."

Monday's tip:


Clean by the clock--


In each room start where you 

see 12 o'clock being and work 
around the room.

Complete each area before 

moving to the next area.

Three R's





Tomorrow is Earth Day.

A day to celebrate our planet.

What can we do for our planet you
ask?

Well,  I have three words for you.

Recycle

Reuse

Repurpose

Let's try to keep our planet clean 
for the next generations to come.

The Hills are Alive...

Happy 50th Anniversary
Sound of Music!

In my vast knowledge bank, 

I did not know that this was 
originally a Broadway Production 
starring Mary Martin and Theodore 
Bikel. It was a five time winner at 
the 14th Annual Tony Awards.

The Broadway version was adapted 

as a film musical in 1965 starring 
Julie Andrews and Christopher 
Plummer. It won five Academy 
Awards.  This is the one I remember 
as a child and continue 
to enjoy as an adult.

My favorite scenes are:


The thunderstorm and the song

"My Favorite Things."

The children running about town

and climbing trees in clothes she
made from their drapes.

When Maria and the Captain

realize that they are in love.

When Elsa leaves because the

Captain doesn't love her.

When the Nuns "fix" the 

Nazi's car so it won't run.

As much as I have seen this,

I still think the Nazis are
going to capture them but
NO they get away and move
on.
