07-11-15 Summer fun & shop organizing!

I started the morning out working in the shop! Through all of the unpacking in the house and moving stuff to the shop for storage for about a month I finally had to get out there and do some organizing. It was a lot of clean up too because the shop isn’t enclosed (yet!) and so with each wind or storm there is dirt inside, dust over everything and spider webs everywhere!


Just stuff…everywhere, ugh!





Got a lot of sorting done, trash to burn pile,camping and sports stuff all up on shelving, etc.


A bit better!



Then we had some fun!







The night was capped off by a gorgeous sunset from our backyard!





Inside I was able to get these cute curtains up over the kitchen window, which allows in a ton of sun so this was a thankful addition to the kitchen!


Living in the country, you do a few things! One: when you have a septic tank you don’t put grease down your drains or else you can ruin your plumbing and/or cause issues with your septic tank. I want to help my septic tank have a long, happy life and so I don’t put grease down the drain and also found a monthly treatment to do! FYI, you drop 1 active yeast tab down the toilet at the end of the night once a month and flush. Then once a month on a different day from the yeast you put a half a gallon of white vinegar and half a gallon of hot water down the toilet which will help you keep your plumbing lines clean and cleared out!

The other thing you do in the country (I discovered) is save your egg shells for your neighbor! My  neighbor (who is AWESOME! Yay!) has a bunch of chickens and goats! So she asked me if I’d save my egg shells for her because she will crush them and use them in her chicken food as an additional/natural source of calcium for the chickens! So now these two jars stay on my kitchen counter! #newcountrylife #countryways #reuse
