I think that Martha Stewart Living Magazine and her TV show have influenced home makers and domestic gods and goddesses. She brought home keeping back into focus with her show and her "good things" and recipes gained such popularity. I would sit down every Sunday and soak in her 60 minutes of Martha.
Macys, Kmart and Sears have sold her products.
Her name has been associated with everything from pots to paint.
A new line of cleaning supplies appeared at my local market and I bought one to see how it might perform.
This "green cleaner" worked it's magic on the Bungalow bathroom.
For extra oomph I am using a micro fiber cloth
which seems to make domestics a whole lot easier.
Our cleaning gal has been off for quite a few weeks now
I cannot remember if I mentioned this fact.
She was injured in a car accident
and is undergoing physiotherapy
she is improving but it is slow going
soft tissue damage
and I think she has whiplash.
I have missed her weekly visits so much.
The Bungalow is admittedly not as tidy
I am trying to keep on top of it!
The bathroom sparkles
now it is steeped in fragrance
a lovely soap from my dear friend and artist, Cheryl Fortier
which is hand made in Auvilar, France
home grown roses.
Last night I was so tired I could hardly keep my eyes open
what saved me was to soak my feet in aromatherapy salts
while listening to Bruce Springsteen
sliding between the sheets before 10 pm
as I type tonight I yawn....
I have pushed the Miele around the Bungalow
upstairs and downstairs
have done 2 loads of laundry
it is only Tuesday...
I think that I am getting very cranky and weary in my old age...
how did you ever keep all the balls in the air?
You made it look so easy....
were there out takes?
did you have help?
