A Cleaner Porch
Just checking on some of my weekly goals. The girls room has stayed pretty neat all week but it will need a quick tidy up when they get back from their sleepover.
My other goal was to clean the porch. I kept putting this off because it was a big job. It did take me nearly two hours and I didn't do a completely thorough job but it looks much better. This is what my porch looked like before:
And this is what is looks like now:
Aaah, much better. I put away all the winter stuff (boots, jackets, snow pants, mitts, toques). You need a lot a stuff to survive a Saskatchewan winter and we had some snow still just last week. We should be done with snow now though so all that stuff got put away for the summer and I swept it out. It could stand to be washed but I wasn't up for that today. I also gathered up all the recyclables that were floating around and put in them in the car to be dropped off at the recycling depot and put a bunch of stuff that was gathering away in the basement. Here's hoping we can keep it neat for a least a little while.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
