Today may be the last day that I scrub my floors on my hands and knees. I like clean floors, but I am really tired of crawling around on my hands and knees to get the job done. Last year I bought a Swiffer and it works OK for a touch up, but it's not so great for the weekly (weekly-- in a perfect world) deep cleaning.
So this morning I searched for reviews of floor sanitizers and I found that the Haan has a good rating. I had never even heard of this brand, but then I have never looked for this type of product. I decided to trust the reviews I found and I ordered the latest Haan model.
It should be here by next weekend.
According to the advertising, the Haan S175 kills 99.9% of germs with no chemicals. You just use tap water and the machine heats it to over 200 degrees and it cleans and sanitizes. I cannot wait to get it!
After cleaning my floors the old-fashioned way, I went outside to walk through the gardens. It's been a month since I walked this area. I was startled to see this leaning tree with the bark gone at the bottom.
I gave it a slight push (wearing my long winter coat that makes my arm look incredibly HUGE).
It fell to the ground!
Whoaa! I felt like Super woman! :) I guess it rotted away. Good riddance is all I can say.
Yesterday my sweet husband, knowing that I had a pretty bad week, came home with these pink roses for me.
Aren't they lovely? I like them in this Mason jar. They even smell nice. It's rare to find a rose with a fragrance these days.
I hope you all had a good weekend. I was happy to stay home and get caught up on my household chores. I hope you did something more interesting!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
