Free Vacation...hahah made you read!

23 February 2011

Ahhh something about the smell and the adventure of a good read. I've been to Athens and France. Cost of my ticket??? The cost of the book I read!

Books are great and can take you anywhere you like to go. Why spend the money when most the countries I read about right now are under direst?

There are so many genera's to read from here is a small break down of my faves!

Historical Fiction: You learn about the characters involved with major historical events. It gives you a better understanding about the main characters and what was going during that time.

Fiction: These are fantastic works of reading. You can be taken to outer space and beyond. This is a great way to let your mind just get lost or wonder if things like that can happen or will in the future.

Arts & Crafts and Cookbooks: These books help one to further or discover a new craft or project for just about anything from woodworking to needlepoint. Cookbooks well those are my faves there is always some new recipe to try or help you lose weight.

Self help: These books are a good resource if you want to lose weight, understand your dreams and more. There are alot of books written by doctors and even some famous people to help with particular subjects.

Non-Fiction: These are autobiographies and more. This more for these of us readers that want the straight facts about certain people or times in history. Non-fiction is also used in research papers and reports.

Religion: This section is as complex as the bible it's self. You can learn about so many different religions and ways to help you study the bible and more. It's a very huge section in most book stores.

As you can see there are many categories of books but they all serve a purpose to help one expand the world outside their door, well expand their knowledge of many subjects. Books can take you anywhere you want to go all you need to do is go to the local library and check out a Good Book to go where you have never been before....a new adventure without ever leaving your house, well except to get the book.

Happy reading!

Cleaning zones

05 February 2011
This cane from another fellow blogger at blogspot.

So here we go another cleaning routine to try and use that I got from a facebook group called sparkling home...check it out here: Sparkling Home.

There are a great set of ladies in the group and documents to help guide/prompt you to get things done, instead of playing on facebook like the rest of use do...hahah

The Zones are broken up into colors and days.

Yellow: Everyday   Green: Monday      Blue: Tuesday     Orange: Wendesday
Red: Thursday       Pink: Friday

I changed my colors cos we all know I don't do pink unless it's the singer and I'm rocking it out on my MP3 player while cleaning :)

Mine are: Yellow, Green, Blue, Orange, Red, Purple

Sooo trying to figure out what each of these Zone has in store? Well I will post the orginal but remember with anything you MUST tweak it to suit your family and your needs. My needs are wayyyy different than yours. As they say in the Pirates of the Carribean they are more like guidelines anyway!

Yellow: 1. Do ONE load of laundry  2. Dishes   3. Wipe Counters  4. Make Beds
5. Sweep Common Areas  6. Water Plants 7. Plan Dinner is mine different? I don't have number 6 & number 7. I plan my dinner menu weekly so I know what I am having.

Green: 1. Change Sheets  2. Wipe down table and chairs (legs too)
3. Sweep front porch  4. Clean Bathrooms  5. Organize Cupboards  6. Dust Blinds
Ok my green is the same except for 5 is just organize. I have my household binder, a medical binder, and kitchen binder and well papers need to be out in their homes...right?

Blue: 1. Mop Kitchen 2. Clean Pet areas 3. Wipe down outlets and light switches
4. Clean out oven  5. Straighten up linen closet
Ok my blue is same except I mop all my floors because we have an open floor plan.  I have 1 pet area to clean. I also wipe down appliances because my house doesn't have a linen closet.

Orange: 1. Dust Furnatures and Window Sills  2. Wipe down Kitchen Apliances
3. Clean out Microwave  4. Dust Door Frames  5. Straighten up coat Closet
My orange is differences on this one.

Red: 1. Refrigerator  2. clean Baseboards 3. Clean bathrooms
4. Straighten up Bedroom Closets  5. Clean Laundry Room 6. Vacuum Carpets
My Red is the same till we get to the carpets...I have hardwood fake me out flooring aka wood laminate. So for that my number 6 is I empty all the trashcans in every room.

Pink: 1. Wash Windows  2. Straighten up Drawers  3. Mop anywhere not the kitchen
4. Wash Doors  5. Clean Light Fixtures 6. Clean up Kids school work areas
My pink is purple and I am constantly having to mop (I might have to make that a yellow chore). Everything else is the same except for number 6. My son is not in school and won't be till aug. of this year (Thank you GOD!). So for that I have organize my pantry which really needs it!

So now you have my zones in a nutshell. I need to redo them where they can better be seen and I likeing that big dry erase board I am thinking I might have to look into. I have papers on the fridge and then there is the calender on the wall too. So if I can have big command station I thing it would all work out!
