Jan.27th – So Clean


I am not the kind of tree hugging earth mother that I always pictured myself growing up into when I was teenager. Lots of time I choose convenience over other things, that’s just a part of a busy grown up. I know I am never going to have time to do all the things I want to do however one of my aims in life is to take a bit more time and think more about what I am doing, using, breathing, eating and putting out into the world. With that in mind I have been looking at using more natural, green things things around my house. Rags instead of paper towel, reusable bags, less plastic and more natural cleaning products.

So this week I made my own All Purpose cleaner.


Everything I needed I already had in my house


It was super easy, took about two minutes and cost me less than a $1 to make a whole bottle and it cleans amazingly.  I am so glad I did this and I can’t wait to make some different things in the future.

Inspired by yesterday’s marathon of cleaning I decided that today would be the perfect day to tackle my arch-nemesis the basement.  I am not going to show you before and after shots, it’s just too embarrassing. But I will tell you that I worked for HOURS moving, sweating, scrubbing vacuuming, re-organizing. I worked my ASS off and still only got about half the work done. If I can push through this cold I have brewing I am going to try and plow through the rest of it. I know it sounds like a boring way to spend a long weekend but as I have said before a clean home gives me peace of mind, peace is good.

Plus I did break up my day with a visit with the sweetest dude I know …


Seriously, I have never met a happier, calmer, more content baby. I love him!
