There are 21 windows in the house at Lazy Bee Farm. Each is a lovely 36 x54, which means there is plenty of light ... and dirt.
Yesterday I washed 10 of them, took down the curtains, washed them, and got them ready to rehang. Even though it was rainy, it was a lovely task. What is it about just washing a window that makes the whole room shine? To wash them I used:
Homemade Window Cleaner
1/2 c. ammonia
1/2 c. white vinegar
Add to the mixture water enough to fill the spray bottle.
Isn't that easy peasy? Now, some folks will add a one teaspoon of dish detergent to the mixture, but I don't. I have been wondering if adding a little lavendar to the mix would be nice. I do that when I add vinegar to my wash instead of using a commerical fabric softener. It works like a dream! No static!
The other thing I made was a snackie thing for the Mister. It is so good that he wants it for breakfast instead of snackie.
2 c. mini-marshmallows (or equal of the large would work)
1/2 c. peanut butter
5 c. Cheerios
Butter a 9 x13 pan and set aside.
Melt the marshmallows to just the soft stage. Add the peanut butter and stir quickly to mix. Then, add the Cherrios. Stir to coat. Press into a 9 x13 pan.
If you want to add any kind of candy, do it before you press into the pan. I added a handful of chocolate chips we had left from making fudge a while back. They melted Just Enough to be yummers.
The state of the loom / craft/ needlework room is dismal. I started cleaning on it, but we have decided to flip it with the Mister's music room. We are building him a studio and he won't be needing it. And, frankly, it is my favorite room of the house. It is upstairs, on the front, with three windows in a cupala. The sunlight is wonderful! So, I am very happy about that, but it means more work than I expected. Ah, who cares? I have another 88 days of break!
What will you do today??
