Around The House

Around the house this week;

A thunderstorm made a small lake at the bottom of the driveway

Ronan figured out how to carry something while walking

The kids had a picnic in space

We picked up our first CSA share of the season


The strawberries ripened en masse


And I mixed up a bottle of my “all purpose” cleaner. I don’t really use it for all purposes, but it’s really good for just about any hard surface. I use it in the bathroom for counters, sinks, mirrors, and the outside of the toilet. In the kitchen for pretty much everything. In the rest of the house for wiping tables, washing windows, mopping floors and spot cleaning as needed. I guess that is pretty darn all purpose. And it couldn’t be simpler.


All Purpose Cleaner

1 cup white vinegar

2 cups water

5-10 drops tea tree essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a container of your choice and mix well. I use a squirt bottle and mix it directly in there. (in all honesty, I don’t really measure anymore, I just eyeball it with the right ratio)

    Happy Solstice! Do you have any plans to celebrate today?

    • Happy Solstice to you! We had a special breakfast and gave the kids their presents already. This afternoon we’ll be collecting flowers for crowns and opening up the house to let the sun in.
