I have been singing or humming that church hymn all morning. I remember when Mother used to do the same thing while she worked.
I got up a while ago and started cleaning (therefore the reference to "elbow grease") Even though I still feel like crap. I have been in the kitchen, and as I worked, I realized that I needed to jump on the blog and give a few references to the products I am using. Yup, it's time for a commercial break. No, really, I bought some of that Amish Wood Milk at Wal-Mart in their AS SEEN ON TV aisle. I cleaned the outside of my wood cupboards, and by golly, it really does a pretty good job. I also got a carton of My Cleaning Secret and used it on my stainless steel sink. Bingo! Again, an A+. And if you are having trouble keeping the grunge off your smooth-top stove, try Barkeeper's Friend cleanser. I haven't tried Ajax or Comet, so don't know about those.
And now back to our regularly scheduled program.
Sunday, sis Judy and I went to a really neat show at this little theater in a small town near us. The play Arsenic and Old Lace was performed, and we had a wonderful time. It was put on in an old movie theater (where I remember going to the movies every Friday night with my boyfriend many, many years ago), and there is all kinds of seating. I'm talking old comfy couches, and overstuffed chairs with pillows. It was really funky and very comfortable. It had a wonderful small-town flavor (kinda like Stars Hollow from TV's Gilmore Girls or the place where Ghost Whisperer was presented).
Hey, the dentist appointment went quite well yesterday. I had a cracked filling fixed and then got a cleaning. I was relieved that I wasn't going to lose an important tooth. I know some of my family history hails from the hills of Missouri, but I sure don't want to go around a huge gap that shows every time I smile. Why is it that so many people that used to live up in the hills always seemed to be missing so many teeth? Really snaggle-toothed.
Well, I am going back to work. I've paused for "this commercial message" long enough.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
