Disclaimer: Do not wash windows if recovering from an injury. At least, get a clearance from your medical professional first. Some of us learn this the hard way!!
Window Washing: This weekend, I did a few chores that you put off until you can’t stand it any more. My windows had been bugging me, they were really in need of a good wash. I have lots of windows designed into my house so I could easily enjoy the view from every room. Here are a few pictures from a post last year showing my windows:
Anyway, you can see I have lot windows to clean, so I broke it into 2 days. Wondering what the “easy” way to clean lots of window is? No, hiring a window washer doesn’t count. LOL! All you need is a bucket of warm water with dish soap, a garden hose with a spray nozzle, and a professional squeegee/cloth combo head on a telescope handle. The top looks like this:
The easy way to do the window involves just a few steps:
1. Spray off any surface dirt
2. Dip cloth end into soapy solution and scrub the window
3. Hose it back off and squeegee window dry.
I do all the exterior windows, then come inside and substitute some window cleaning solution instead of a hose spray down for the inside windows. This is a modification of how a professional window washer would approach the job, I think. I usually wash my windows at least 4 times per year and more if they need it. Has anyone found a better way to approach their windows- besides hiring someone to do it? I figure I save myself $150+ to do the job myself, so that is more money to spend elsewhere!
Today, I head down the hill for an appointment in Sacramento since washing windows caused me to have a set back in my yarn related injury. I kid you not!
This gives me the perfect opportunity to take a side trip to a different bead store that carries every seed beed size and style that is made. It is time to finally decide on a design for “Use the Muse 2” and get started. I have my focal point, I have my other beads, but what I am lacking is seed beads in just the RIGHT color.
Chef Joe: Joe and I had a nice weekend together- window washing set back notwithstanding. He is in a cooking phase, so I happily volunteered to be his guinea pig, especially since that meant I didn’t have to cook each night. My favorite meal was “Caribbean Night” which had Jerk Chicken, mango salad, chickpeas in rice dish- with a shimp appetizer. My man gets an A+ for effort, creativity, and being a terrific husband! You just gotta love a man that cooks.
Enjoy your Monday!! Carla
