I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself and blog by sharing a day in the life of ME, Jem. What better day then hump day?
Since all my children are off to school, I will make some sweet tea. AAaaa that’s better. Now it’s shower time.
I am part of the curly hair club. I finally found a way to keep my hair from being SUPER frizzy. I use DIY Baking Soda Shampoo & Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner – 100% Green & Effective! I have added a few things to my routine we will talk about later.
I have been so itchy lately so I used my Almond Cinnamon Oatmeal Milk and Honey soap.
Click here to see it on Esty! I also used my own homemade body butter; it is still a work in process.
Now it is time to write my to-do list out and get to work.
I have to clean out the closet under the stairs in order to get to my spring decorations. There isn’t much in the closet just seasonal clothes and decorations, along with the vacuums. Here is the before and after pictures.
Spring decorations put out, man I thought I had more. I must figure out what to do about that. Craft time (happy dance, yay, clap, clap!). Friday is Ostara (the first day of spring) this is the spring holiday we celebrate. Check out this link if you would like to know more about Ostara. I started boiling eggs so we can color them on Fun Fun Friday.
Lunch time, I had a salmon salad sandwich while watching my “soaps”, LOL. I am watching Desperate Housewives from S1:E1 on Netflix. I had to go to the bathroom and ended up cleaning the toilet, it happens with a family of 6, if mine needed done then so does little girls/guest bathroom.
I used Dr Bronner’s Magic soap to clean my toilets.
On my way I found a pile of laundry to throw it in the washer. I used this laundry soap. As you can see I am easily distracted, at least I have clean toilets and laundry now.
After some yoga, making myself pretty and photo shoot of my soap, I did a bit of computer work. My Esty store, Jem’s Eclectic Home is now up and running. I am super excited to begin this adventure.
The kids are home now, so we are working on homework. My youngest is not feeling 100% so she will not be going to gymnastics tonight. My second youngest decided to skip gymnastics tonight to play with friends. This SAVES me 2 ½ hours of driving and sitting around. I am okay with that. We will still have leftovers tonight because it is trash night and I would like to clean out the fridge.
What will I do with my extra time at home? I will finish my to-do list, clean the kitchen (you saw my dirty stove) and finish this post.
