Yesterday I did a deep clean on the bathroom in the hall and it looks wonderful. Greg says he cleans the toilet and I told him you have to clean EVERYTHING in there. I had been leaving it for him to clean as he is the main person to use that bathroom but it was getting totally out of hand. So I stepped in and took care of it as I usually do as I can't stand it when it gets THAT bad. Now it's all sparkling clean. Today I will do our Master Bath but it won't be nearly as much work.
I also tackled most of the laundry yesterday and will finish it today. Scott and I checked out a store called "Ollies" for a little break in the day after I had done all that work. Ollies is full of such a random mix of stuff to buy and it's always changing as they buy and resell closeouts. We bought a few items but not as much as the other shoppers. Mostly food stuffs for us - we are getting to where we only buy truly consumable items - food mostly. We are checking more thrift stores and such for clothing as I hate the clothes being offered in the stores now at such ridiculous prices. The fabrics are getting thinner and thinner as the price go up and up.

Lets see... what else have I been up to with so much extra time on my hands. Well I've made a few flowers..
Flowerlady Lorraine and I smile every time I finish one and think of her beautiful roses.
Then I've been "playing" in my recycled Art Journal that I made with cereal boxes following Jennibellie's tutorial on You Tube. There is a link to her You Tube Channel on her blog if anyone is interested in looking her up. She has some fabulous tutorials on Art Journals and Art Supplies. Here are the pages that I did this week.
|Completed pages with Charcoal pencil added.|
Once we followed the actual tutorial we were to step it up and do another 2 page spread using this method with our own spin added to it and here is what I've come up with so far; these pages are not finished yet.

I guess that catches you all up for now. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and to those all ready on Monday - I hope you are having a GREAT start to a new week.
