Spanish! Carpet! Groceries! 4.11.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:29 pm  

Studied Spanish. Un poco cada día!

Brain training.

Beautiful day!


My poison ivy, continues to heal. I’m primarily using aloe vera to treat it. Plant based medicine vs plant based attack! Plus a cocoa butter lotion.

With the dry weather, I decided to work on cleaning the carpet. Hard job!

First, I do a deep scrub. I mix hot water with some Oxyclean and pour a pattern on the carpet. Then scrub it in with a stiff broom.

It looks way better after the deep scrub.

Then I go to Lowes to rent the Bissell carpet cleaner. It sprays product onto the carpet then vacuums it up. Or at least most of it.

I used my sister-in-law’s machine last time, but it didn’t get near the dirt out that this machine does. It looks pretty gross.

Finished product. I save about $100 and do a WAY better job than the “pros” do. Mainly because they don’t take the time (1.5 hours) to scrub it properly.

I picked up a lot of carpet fibers that get sucked up.

I didn’t even measure the scrubbing part! I know how long it took, however.

I worked on the carpet from about 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM without a break. The trip to Lowes to get the machine and then again to turn it in usually takes about 45 minutes in all, if not more.

Transported two squirrels today. Doubt it will ever end.

Picked up the groceries. It’s no big deal for me to go get it. It’s about a twenty minute job in all since I don’t have far to drive.

After I dropped off the second squirrel, I cleaned out the bird baths.

I really miss my hummingbirds. I hope they come soon.
