Tuesday Tip: Clean Green

For years I never thought about what I used to clean my home with,  just so it got rid of the stale smells.   But that has changed.  After a couple of rushed trips to the emergency room with my Sister Susan came to Houston to visit because we walked into a restraurant and they were using a "clorine based bleach" to clean.   I started paying attention to what I use, realizing how drastic "bleach" can affect someone.

Here is a great receipe for "SAFE BLEACH"

Wonderful time!

They say what happens in VEGAS,  STAYS IN VEGAS,  however nothing is secret with all the pictures that my Niece Hannah posted on Facebook, celebrating  her 21st Birthday.

Several years ago,  my mom promised Hannah that when she turned 21 she would take her to Las Vegas to see Chris Angel.   We made it a girls trip,  Hannah and my Mom of course,  sisters Susan and Elizabeth,  and nieces Gwen and Beth.  

I loved every minute of it,  even though I left my donation in Las Vegas.  Nothing could compare to the time and opportunity to spend 3 1/2 days with family.   So glad that I didn't forget to take my magnesium lotion.    One would think that with all the time that I spent at the one armed bandits (and yes they are bandits) that I would have had trouble even getting in 5,000 steps per day.  However I had 2 days of  over 18,000 steps and one with over 15,000 . . that while everyone cheered with me when I hit my 10,000 steps and my Fitbit started vibrating,  my legs were not cheering,  but screaming,  especially at the end of the day.   I can honestly say that the magnesium lotion made all the difference in being able to sleep and move the next day to do it ALL over again.

Happy October!

October has always been one of my favorite times of the year.  When I lived in Pennsylvania,  I loved the changing of Colors.  Now that I've been in TEXAS for more years that I care to share,  I realize just how much I miss the changing of the leaves. . . now I wait on the temperatures to break.

Saw this picture and it so reminded me of  the October.   I have two neices still up in Pennsylavania where their babies are all close in age,  and when I look at this I see them :)

PS:  I also find myself wondering how they got them to hold still so long
