I had the day off from work yesterday and decided to clean the house. Here is what I did:
-cleaned the sliding glass door (our dog leaves her mouth and nose print on it)
-swept and mopped the kitchen, bathroom, and entry way
-cleaned out the microwave
-washed 5 loads of laundry (it was REALLY nice to get into bed after a long day to fresh smelling sheets and comforter)
-unloaded the dishwasher
-loaded the dishwasher back up
-dropped clothes off at the Salvation Army
-dust the house (and the sneezed all day)
-vacuumed the whole house including the stairs (the stairs I hate to vacuum!)
-made a grocery list and planned meals for the week
So this morning I was planning on sleeping in but I woke up at 8! Oh well! My house feels clean and that's a good feeling! I just read for most of the day!

We went to the annul Old Settler's Day Parade last Saturday here in town.
The parade was of the local Jr High and High school bands and the businesses around the area. It was still fun to go and see all the floats and people.

I feel silly buying this candy! I was in Hy-Vee looking at their huge selection of Halloween candy and just happened to see at the very bottom shelf a bag of chocolates for Stephanie Meyer's New Moon! So I had to get them! I just hope that I'm not the only adult out there buying this bag of chocolates! :)
We were given this clock from my father-in-law. It was my mother-in -law's. She got it from an antique shop and took it in to get it working again. I'm not for sure about the history behind it (or if there is one). The only things we know is that it is at least 100 years old. Danny (my father-in-law) found the key to wind it up every few days. So now it works again. It is really cool to hear the tick tock and to hear it chime!
