a day of rest

Yesterday, it took 9 hrs to finish cleaning that lady’s house. Toward the end, Steve was grumbling. Less than minimum wage, etc…but we had our money and a satisfied customer. We stumbled to trivia and won 1st – $50 in house cash. Steve has slept most of the day. He’s going to his brother’s to work tomorrow. Then we have a house to clean on Tuesday. The peach stand should open on Wednesday if we get our information untangled. The stand was supposed to be up yesterday but so far, no sign of it. We’ll see what happens.

I spent $38 dollars for business cards and a trial web site for us. I hope I handle this correctly.


The girls took Kayla clothes shopping today. I know my sweet girl looks wonderful. They are having a wonderful weekend.


About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.

    The website looks great! I imagine those first laborous days are going to be brutal on your bodies. Cleaning for 9 hours is hard work. The peach stand sounds good and I like that you’ll be able to do your knitting/music/resting in between customers. Hugs friend.

    you will find your groove and soon you will clean up in no time at all, especially if you do the same houses. and yes… it’s tough work, so it will be hard on your bodies at first. i still say it sounds like fun… call me crazy! 😀
