Remember how I said before that I wanted to reconnect with our house and yard. Blah, blah, blah. Well reconnecting means work. Why does it take me this long to figure out the true meaning of words?
Easy, peasy grout cleaning tip. Very hot water, Oxi-clean, and an old toothbrush(or your enemy's toothbrush, does a husband count as an enemy?). Scrub and let it dry. Vacuum it up and then mop.
For some reason it takes a while for it to completely whiten but it does work very well.
Here is the damned yard, that I have connected with. Bastard weeds.
And to make things worse, it rained terrible while we were yanking all of the weeds. Den kept saying that we should stop and go to the casino. I was mean and told him to carry on with the pulling.
That is the best that we can do with the back fence.
And this is the wonderful find that I well, found at a garage sale. It was only $5 and next year I will get a huge planter to hang in it. I was hoping that it would draw attention away from the ugly piping for the pool. I think all that it is doing is drawing attention to it. I'll figure something out next year.
