Boy am I worn out after this morning!!! I’ve been going nonstop since 9:30 when I met KERF reader Kelly for a walk to the farmer’s market –
She’s moving here later this summer!
We browsed around
And I filled up on veggies in my backpack – basil peeking out the top! We’re growing basil but it’s not ready yet, so I picked up a huge bunch for $2 for a recipe this week. Also note the water bottle – bringing one to the market has been SO nice!
Back at home I put the basil in water
Put away my other veg
And got to work on a MASSIVE house clean!
- Vacuumed all floors
- Steam mopped all floors
- Did 3 loads of laundry
- Changed the sheets on 2 beds
- Folded said laundry
- Washed SHOWER CURTAIN and mat!
- Wiped all baseboards ( <—worst chore ever and I rarely do it)
- Spot cleaned
- Wiped kitchen cabinets, including the upper parts that I can’t reach so I never clean

My new smell set made cleaning lots of fun. I ordered a few of Laundry Tree’s blends because they were a good price and too tempting to not smell. I got Energy, which is minty, Tea Tree, which I thought was just a good one to have on hand, and CLEAN COTTON which totally rocks!! It’s the smell of a wonderful laundry detergent. Note it’s a fragrant oil and not an essential oil (the difference is noted here.) I want to make a linen spray with it! The three oils on the left are the ones I’ve gotten at Whole Foods – Peppermint, French Lavender, Vanilla.
I worked and worked and worked until I was weak. I didn’t really get hungry for lunch, but by the time I sat down to eat at 2:30 I was long overdue.

Plus a swiss, jam + basil sandwich on Dakota
Swiss is NOT as good as sharp white cheddar! It’s the key to cheese + jam sandwiches
Found these guys in my yard –
Now that the shower is clean, I can use it. And then I can wash MY laundry –including the clothes I’ve been sweating in all morning!
