Featured Article       The 10 Commandments of Clean



This past two weeks has found us with rain, rain, and more, well, rain.  Funny, but I didn't recall moving to a rainforest.  We haven't gone more than one day without rain in about two months.  The backyard is literally sloshing from all the water.  Mowing has been almost impossible because the mower wheels sink into the mud.  Strange, but this time last year we were complaining about the heat and drought.  I guess it's a case of being careful what you wish for.

I don't actually mind the rain because it keeps the temperatures lower and milder, which is so nice.  The worst part has been the pestilence.  If I walk into the yard for even a few minutes, I'm covered with mosquitoes.  For that reason, a bottle of mosquito spray stands at the ready in the garage and at the back door.  If you haven't tried the new dry-feeling "Off" brand mosquito spray, you should.  It really does feel better than the regular brand. 

The new Off has a dry, lightweight feel that doesn't make you feel coated with greasy spray.  Ick.  If it's too hot to go out, think about doing a few indoor projects this summer.  You'll have a neater, more organized house and you won't be itching from mosquito bites -- or sweating bullets.

Until next time...
