On The Mend

I've been marveling at how wiped out I was while sick. I slept a lot and that is unusual for me. But Sunday and Monday I could tell I was better....
Yesterday, I did some schoolwork with the kids, and almost put myself to sleep while reading aloud to the kids! I thought that maybe I had overdone it Sunday and that I was going to need to nap. But I didn't I laid on the couch for about 10 minutes and then started to vacuum - a move the furniture level vacuuming.
That done I had plans to clean the floors. This doesn't get done nearly enough. These are hardworking floors and they take a beating. The best way to clean them is the old fashioned 'Cinderella' method - on the hands and knees.
Fortunately I've got good help around here and it was done in no time! I was amazed because I moved the pantry cupboard and cleaned behind it and the side of the stove and microwave that don't see daylight but managed to get greasy! Ick! I also cleaned the air vent that is in the floor.
I told the girls, I would take the kitchen, because I knew I wanted to do some of these 'tougher' areas. They were done way before me! But it's all done, and looking good as you can see in Emma's photo above!
I love clean floors!
Then we went outside and chatted away in the cooler weather. Lindsay gave lessons today, and one of the families has 9 children, but I think only 4 take lessons. Kyle and Sarah like to play with all the kids - today the boys set up soda cans, and used Kyle's rubber band shooter to knock them down!
Once lessons were over, I decided to mow. It's a big job, but I enjoy doing it.
I do plan to take it a bit easier today, but you can never tell what day will bring!
What are you planning?
