A day in the life of a Domestic Goddess........

If anyone knows what that's like, please let me know?


Mine is more like "A Day in the Life of a General Dogsbody!"


Although it was a lovely morning on Tuesday, by lunchtime the humidity had hit again.  I managed to get Molly's blanket and comforter washed and a load of laundry done for us.  I also got a lot of the house cleaned, so that was good.

I had a guy come in and change and service the UV Light for the water softener.  I had been worried about how much salt our water softener had been using, as other people kept saying we were using too much.  Anyhow, it turns out we have very hard water where we live, and that is why we use as much salt as we do.  We go through a 40 kg (approx 88 lb) bag of salt in just under 4 weeks.

I made a dish of Brownies, I saw the recipe at Teresa's blog



Molly was busy watching Squirrel tv on Tuesday night.
The squirrel was laying in the evening sun just relaxing!!!


Today's Peek From The Past is here.  This year that field is filled with sweet corn.  I think I preferred the sunflowers........

Back to work today, hoping to catch up with everyone's blog's in the next day or two.

Oh and nearly forgot, dh bought a battery charger and that is all that is wrong with the tractor the battery is flat.  However I did manage to break to cable box for the tv in our bedroom on Tuesday, so I am back in the doghouse AGAIN..........I should just move in there permanently!!

Mmmm Brownies, luv 'em, so I'll have to try that recipe. But it's impossible to do any decent baking while it's so hot outside, the kitchen gets overheated so my family will have to wait until September for their chocolate taste treat.

brownies look great, they surely will get you out of the dog house!

The corn must be nice for the grower but I think I like the sunflowers better, too.
Too bad about those little things that break and get you in trouble. You'll just have to not touch any of those mechanical contraptions. That should give you lots of time to be the domestic goddess you are!

That is a fantastic photo of the squirrel!!! I'm a dogs body too, we should start a club! xxx

Those brownies look so yummy!!! I'm probably going to bake some banana-chocolate chip muffins this weekend as it's supposed to get cooler here so I won't die from the heat if I turn the oven on!

You sharing your brownies with Molly?

Millie said...

We love watching squirrels around here. Actually, we love watching the silly kitty try to catch the squirrels.

Teresa said...

Hope you like the brownies, and thanks for the shout out. My nephew took that recipe to the county fair and got a blue ribbon on it.
