Back to Normal

Normal according to Webster’s is conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.  Well that is me on this first Monday in January 2019.  I didn’t sleep much last night because I was afraid I would oversleep on my first day back to a “normal” cleaning routine for clients that seem to want me back!  I never left but took a little break the last week of December and the first few days of January 2019.

I use a Mopnado mop and bucket my daughter bought me from Amazon and its fantastic. Your hands never touch dirty water.

I have six mopheads that are only used on one floor a week and I throw them in the washer at the end of the week to start clean and fresh every week.

My other bucket that follows me to each job is full of all of my favorite cleaning agents that are homemade or the best I’ve ever tried, all of which I use in my own home.

The blue bucket holds all of cleaning materials which I provide to my clients.  The only thing they provide is paper towels, if needed.

So, I’m back to normal as far as work is concerned, four days a week and usually home by 1:00 p.m.  After I get home I take care of home and farm chores helping the Mr. when I can and if he needs me.  Friday is my day on the farm!  Love my clients!

HAPPY MONDAY!!

 

Antiquing on the farm

Hubby and I have been working through some more of the buildings on the farm to see what is useable and what’s there that we didn’t know about.  Our farm used to be the home of four of the Caldwell siblings from the 1800’s.  Theses are some of the handmade tools and other objects that we’ve found so far:

farm equipment and Victoria modeling 059I’ve started a area on the front porch called the “conversation pieces”.  I love it when older people in the area come to look and talk about what they were used for and how they were used.
