Fall Cleaning has Started.. Porch & Windows... Finally--Got the carport put In.

The carport was ordered 11 weeks ago.. They FINALLY
came  this week, and installed it.
The porch chairs, were taken out and sprayed with 
clorox water and rinsed.. They sure look better. on the photo , to see it better. Sorry the
photos are so bad.. Sun was too bright..[and it was
too hot [100 degrees], to take more.ha]

The porch was emptied, and the walls, floor and
porch railing washed and mopped.

               Snapped a photo of the flower/water pump area, 
              During , one of my breaks..
              Have a blessed weekend.

September  Fall Cleaning  To Do List

1- wash walls-- My plan is to  do one room a week,
I did the living room yesterday.

2- Clean the windows [outside and inside]. We are adding
new windows to the house , this next week..When we
moved, that was one job, we had not done.. So, this job
would need to be done anyway..

3-Kitchen-- wash the  inside and outside of cabinets, I
added new shelf liner, when we moved in May. So,
it should just be an easy wipe down?

4-- Bring in  [from storage building] fall/winter clothing
and start taking out the summer things.. This will be
at end of Sept or Early October.  When I do this, I will
go through clothes, and  make my donate pile.

5- Clean my fabric shelf.  

6- Paint the storage building we bought..[waiting on the
cooler weather for that...whew...its hot !!!]

7- Start my fall decorating.  I love fall, and this
is fun...not work at all.

8- Sewing-- make my fall cushion covers for porch

9- Christmas gifts-- start crafting/sewing the things
I will be making.  Start doing some of the shopping
for Christmas gifts.

Some how......... when I write these goals
seems so easy and quick........... But, sure doesn't
feel that way , when I do

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Coconut Pop Corn...[Free pop corn container]

Yummy Popcorn
 My daughter told me about this yummy
pop corn.. Just melt some  coconut oil in
your skillet, add a few tablespoons of
pop corn and salt.. Oh my , it is so
good.. No need to add butter...
NOTE... You will have a hard time quit eating it.

I had bought a bag of popcorn, and was looking for
a container.. I had a parmesen cheese container.It
is perfect.. It has the lid ,that opens and a  tablespoon
will fit into or  the other side opens to the big sprinkles,
you can just shake out , how much you need. Works
Note-- This lid will also fit on a quart or pint
fruit jar [if you have a bigger quanity  of pop
corn to store.. These lids are really  useful, for
so many things.. I never throw them away any longer.
