thenester #Repost from @cleanmama
It's nice to have a daily reminder of small daily tasks to keep the house under control. Do you follow @cleanmama ? Here's what she says: --- Start March out right with a simple, easy to follow cleaning routine! If you've been following me on IG and haven't started following my cleaning routine, make this your week to start. Every day I do a couple DAILY TASKS and then each day of the week has an assigned task. It's do-able with a job, family, pets....look at the previous snap for my daily tasks and if you'd like a free printable calendar, head on over to the blog to grab March's routine.

thenester Our bedroom from our last house (a rental) turned up in the March issue of @betterhomesandgardens
The best parts:
*twin sheets for drapes
*thrifted pillow case &
*white duct tape on a painted grey wall

It doesn't have to be expensive to be beautiful.

thenester That time I went to google maps and labelled a screen shot of the satellite photo of our property for fun. We have 12 acres that look 1000 times better in the summer when there are leaves. It's natural to assume it must all look amazing--and some parts do, but there are many MANY junk piles and dilapidated buildings. It's both wonderful & overwhelming--like most good things in life.

Also, I wrote about ManTime today on the blog. Now I'm gonna go play on google maps some more...

thenester When the house overwhelms you, clear off the table & wipe it down with a steaming hot dishcloth. It's magical & makes the messiest house feel ten times cleaner. 1w
  •   tanya.clark I agree!! When the kitchens clean the whole house just feels better 1w
  •   adahdog I totally agree!! When I get irritated about a messy house it's usually just the counters that are really bothering me! 1w
  •   bonnerrechele My precious youngest human's schedule keeps my mess much bigger than the amount of time to take care if that mess! Loved this! 1w
  •   sarah.struwe @rrhicks the very best 1w
  •   anacristinaowens YES! So so true! 1w
  •   adornedwithblessings Yep! So true!! 1w
  •   lisa.anne.5 Agreed! 1w

thenester It snowed this morning! So no school. And that translates to no work today. Even the local coffee shop was closed. Tuesday with snow, no work, no school & no pretty coffee is so weird! #itssimplytuesday 1w
  •   mindyalaine This is day 7 of no school for is here in East TN! Moms everywhere are losing their minds! 1w
  •   christinakberg Ridiculous! We've had snow for 3 months and temps -20 Celsius and lower for 6 weeks and never ever is school cancelled in Montreal... @thenester 1w
  •   hoodcreeklogcabin We have a snow day today over in Wilmington too! 1w
  •   bekwales This is our 7th consecutive "snow" (more like ice) day. Heaven help us. 1w
  •   beccabozarth Nice surprise for us too 1w
  •   denofsix I don't understand the 'snow-no school'. Does it makes the roads super icy? I live in northern canada and school here doesn't shut down unless it's -40*C! Which is crazy. 1w
  •   birchandlily @denofsix I remember being in Ladysmith, BC one year when they got 1 cm of snow and school was cancelled. I (being from Saskatchewan) was flabbergasted when they explained that "they didn't have snow removal equipment in the city". I replied "do you know it's possible to DRIVE THROUGH 1 cm of snow?!?" it's all about perspective and experience. 1w
  •   paolanorman12345 This post made me chuckle 😀 11h
