A Cleaner Entry
Well, I did it. I got the closet area cleaned up here. Here is a picture of it now. It looks much better. If only I can keep it this way.
Now one thing I have to worry about is all the papers and books the girls are bringing home now that school is almost done. They are so proud of their work and want to save everything but it is not possible. I do have a box for each of them that I save some of the stuff I think they may want to look back at in the future but the rest of the stuff needs to go. Admittly I have a hard time getting rid of stuff as well so it is not just them. So that is what I have to work on is getting rid of stuff, particulary as more stuff comes home from school.
On another note it has been very rainy here in Saskatchewan. It is the wettest spring in decades. A lot of the fields are flooded and many farmers are not done seeding and it is now getting too late to seed. We were lucky as we got most of our seeding done. There was just one field we were unable to get seeding. But my garden is just a big mud puddle and there hasn't been many nice days to enjoy being outside. Now when the weather does get nice it won't be very enjoyable outside because with all this wet weather the mosquitos are just thriving. They are bad. Especially having a young son on whom you are not supposed to put insect repellant it is going to be difficult to spend a lot of time outside particularly in the evenings. So I welcome any ideas on keeping mosquitos away.
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.
