Simple Mexican Pita Melt




Pin It

Meals must be the thing that I stress about the most.  Sometimes I find myself without a clue in the world, in terms of what I can feed my family.  On a usual basis, you can be sure to find certain foods in our kitchen: a fresh pot of beans, salsa, and pita bread.

This is a deliciously nutritious meal that can be quickly made with a few Mexican leftovers.

How to Easily Wash and Dry Your Rugs without a Carpet Cleaner!

Pin It

Carpeting is a great thing, but over time, they collect dust, debris, food, and other not so pretty things. This is especially true with kids in the house. Our kids are asthmatic, so the allergens that our rugs collect must be kept at bay. We have had a trusty carpet cleaner for the past six years, but after losing a filter cover we have had to find another way of keeping our rugs clean.  So here is what you will need: dirty rug(s), laundry detergent, a water hose (spraying attachments are a plus), a cemented area, and a bristled brush (we use a long car-washing brush that looks like a push-broom).

After vacuuming your rugs, take them outside to a cemented area.

New Year, New Beginnings: Pointillism Artwork


Pin It

I am not much of a "new year resolution" person, but I must admit that there is something wonderful about the year "refreshing."  Yes, yesterday carries over into today, but at the same time, the dawn of a new year can make it seem as though it doesn't.  Today was the first Monday of the year, so we commenced school.  Being that my kids are in kindergarten and pre-school, we keep it pretty simple.
