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

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.

A Small Confession





Happy Friday to you!

Just popping in to say 
that I am still here but 
I must confess that I 
am in (using sports 
terminology ) a SLUMP!!!

It is April and I think 
my brain is focused on 
finishing the school year. 
So please accept my apology 
for being MIA right now.

Hang with me I will be 
BACK.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Oh Yum!



Hi friends!

I am back at it. Still fighting with these 

horrid allergies though! Yuck.
Thanks again for well the "Well Wishes."

Sunday Savor has a bit of a twist today

so pull up a chair and relax.





Today is:
National Grilled Cheese Day!

A comfort food for most and 

must have for most children 
and my husband.

The Ancient Romans were the 

first to make a cooked bread 
and cheese sandwich, but many 
cultures have created their own 
versions. 
The classic version we know today
appeared in the 1920's when bread 
and cheese were affordable.

It is popular selection in many diners,

cafe's, schools and homes. Though it
is usually made with three ingredients,
some "dress" it up. 

Add ons: 

Bacon
Ham
Other cheeses

Sides:

Tomato Soup
Chips
Salad

How do you make a grilled cheese?


I am a classic lover from way back

but do enjoy bacon or ham on it too.

Enjoy a Grilled Cheese today!

An Easter Outing



Last Saturday afternoon, 
Ken, his brother, his girl-
friend and I went to the 
Country Club Plaza to see 
"THE BUNNIES!" 





I'm not too sure about the 

characters on each side of 
this young lady????





Ken's brother, Gregg and 

his girlfriend Julie. She 
had never been down to 
see the bunnies! She was 
a hoot!!





These two are a couple 

NOT to be trusted!  : )




The GALS.






The GUYS.






Two wild and crazy GALS!!!






Our reward for all the walking 

that we did. A stop at The Cheese-
cake Factory. Three Cherry cheese-
cakes and one Red Velvet. Heaven!!!




The FAB Four plus one.

We had a great time and
the weather was sooo nice.
