quick tip: vacuum cleaner freshener




Your vacuum bag can develop odors from all of the hair, dander, and dirt that it picks up. Using vacuum bag fresheners can help keep odors from happening.


When putting a new vacuum cleaner bag in your machine, place a cotton ball soaked in clove or a favorite scented oil inside the bag (or in the plastic container on the bag-less models). It fills your home with a nice aroma and doesn't get into the carpet, or harm pets, or children.

Whether a church is
simple or ornate, large or small,
old or new, wooden or stone...

it is most likely always a beautiful site to behold.


Today, I share this beautiful image of a church with you
in hopes that it brings
a little peace, a little joy
and a lot of love.



Lord, as I walk through this World,
Let Your Grace Light my Path,
Your Mercy Shelter my Soul
and Your Love Heal my Heart.

quick tip: measuring sticky ingredients





Spray your measuring cups with cooking spray before measuring any of the sticky ingredients (honey, peanut butter, or molasses) that called for in your recipe. Brushing a coat of oil around the inside of your measuring cups will create a slippery surface, too. Sticky ingredients will literally just slide on out! 

If your recipe calls for a sticky ingredient and oil, measure the oil first and then measure the sticky ingredients (same results)

quick tip: clean your garbage disposal




Dispose some citrus fruits like orange and lemon to keep your disposal odor free. For stubborn odors pour baking soda into the drain and let it set for several hours before running the water into it.

Grind up a tray of ice cubes once in awhile to keep blades sharp. If the blades of the disposal are worn out then consider replacing them with new ones.
