Happy St. Patricks Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Today is also my mother's 78th birthday.  We are having a special dinner with a very special lady.


My best friend, my sister and I have made our Leprechaun trap.  Baited and ready to go.  Hopefully he will leave us some gold.  Are you ready to catch your Leprechaun?

What a busy week.

This is going to be such a busy week so I am changing up my routine a bit just to make sure I get everything done.  I changed sheets and did laundry Saturday and Sunday.  Today I am going to clean the baths.  I love cleaning my shower with my new cleaning solution of 1 cup hot vinegar and 1 cup dawn.  Put in a spray bottle, I spray the shower, toilet, and sinks (kitchen sink too).  I will clean everything in the bathrooms and let this sit for about 1 - 2 hours then scrub.  So shiny and smells good too.  I then mop the floors.  My bathrooms are sparkly clean.  I will then vacuum the entire house.  Tomorrow I will dust and clean the kitchen. 

Tonight is Taco night.  Larry is a Taco freak.  I have never seen anyone love Taco's as much as he does... I may make some brownies for him.  He loves brownies too.

My mother's 78th birthday is Saturday and I am planning a special dinner for her and the family.   I will be wearing a magic apron and smiling from ear to ear.

House to Home!

After reviewing pinterest and all the other blogs, I have come to the conclusion that I do not need to do this series.  It seems everyone is doing a cleaning or spring cleaning right now.  I think I will just do some cooking and continue posting recipes as we all need to prepare healthy meals for our loved ones.  I will also continue adding tips on cleaning and household chores.  I will  be posting a recipe I make for cleaning my shower and keeping the mold and soap scum at large.  I will also be posting many, many new aprons this weekend.  Remember to always smile when wearing one of Mimi's Magic Aprons.

Comfort Food

We have had a long and stormy week.  We were blessed not to be hurt or to have any property damage.  I feel we all needed a little comfort in our lives so I made Homemade Brunswick Stew, Cornbread and Lemon Meringue Pie.  I think everyone has a smile on their face right about now.  Part 2 of my series starts this week.

Going from House to Home!

This is a series of turning your house into a  home.  Anyone can have a house but it takes lots of love and attention to turn your house into your home.  I will teach you some of my ideas and even give you some of my secrets.  Everyone who comes into the door will feel comfortable and feel right at home.  You will want to come home, it is your sanctuary, your peace, your retreat.  So come and visit my blog and lets work together.

When you keep house you use your brains, your heart and your hands.  You want your house, the place where you rest your body; to be a home, a place where everyone comes to un-wind, rest and congregate.

Keeping house is an art.  It takes skill, knowledge and lots of love.  It is a labor of love.  You might not like cleaning but you will like the way your home looks, feels and smells when you keep it clean and orderly.  Your home does not need to be perfect.  It does need to be healthy, dirty is not healthy.  So set your standards.  What do you want for yourself and your family!

Lets get ready and go from house to home!

Next step  will be making routines.  Stay tuned.
