Whew – we worked hard all morning!! The house is spotless; the yard looks great again. The grass was REALLY long from all the rain and the 2 weeks that we let go by, so I took me forever to mow. I had to keep lifting up the mower to keep it from clogging and shutting off. I now have blisters on my hands 🙁 It took me over an hour to mow both the front and back yards. I really like mowing a lot because it’s an excuse to "play" in the yard. I would never go out there and just run around or roll in the grass, but I always wish we used the yard more. We need a dog, or a kid, I suppose!
Meanwhile, the husband was busy removing the giant flower stalks from the garden so now we can see the yard again!
From the upstairs window:
We also cleaned all the floors in the house…I figured out the perfect combo: Distilled vinegar + water to clean the floors, but that leaves them very dull, so I go back over with OrangeGlo to polish them. They are sparkling!
And washed and folded all the sheets and towels and cleaned the bathrooms. And organized the dish cabinets in the dining room!
Lunch came around….3:00 !!! I got a little hungry around 1pm but hunger went away mid-mow and I wasn’t really that hungry at 3 for lunch. But I knew I needed some fuel, and by the time I sat down I was ready.
I defrosted a Ezekiel English muffin and spread it with my fantastic mystery dip/spread . Yum!
Plus a few crackers –
And a bowl of honey Chobani (which I decided I don’t like because the honey makes it too runny) topped with 1/2 a peach (shared with the hub), some raspberries and Kashi U cereal .

OH yeah, and my Foodservice professor just emailed us the breakdown of the prerequisite exam scores – I did well!!! The highest grade was an 88, and I got an 87 8) That means I missed 13/100. I’m curious to see what they were – that test was H.A.R.D.!
