I get a call that I am off today due to too many hours over at the workplace . I have a pressing need to do some housework so this is helpful.  So today I started I am trying to get caught up with the laundry and give the toilet and bathroom a real clean instead of the quick wipe. I try to not use a lot of chemical in my cleaning so I use a borax and baking scrub to clean the toilet.  I first shut the water value off and thenI sprinkle the mix I made inside the bowl. I then start scrubbing with the toilet brush. After a good scrub I let it set for one-half  hour.  After the time is up I turn the water back on and rinse. I found it there is an area that does not come clean the pumice stone is a good way to get it off.

Toilet scrub mix:  1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of borax. Add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil. I like to use lavender.

Later I took a break to vote and get some chicken and vegetables for dinner. We are having Mexican Fried Chicken, Mexican Salad for dinner and Artisan Bread.

As part of my lifetime learning experience I enrolled into two classes online now. I am taking Drawing Nature, Science and Culture: Natural History Illustration 101 at Newcastle University. I have never been much into drawing but I hope I can learn some realistic techniques to draw some of my planting plans. This first drawing for SpatialDepth  needs improvement and I hope I will learn more to do so.  The other class is Soil4Life: Sustainable Soil Management at Wageningen.

After dinner we will drive to the KonzaBeekeepers meeting to learn about making stuff using honey and other bee products.
