On a recent hike,at a favorite park, I came across a couple abandoned houses.  I had never been in this part of the park before, so I didn't know they were there just over the fence.

Abandoned houses really bother me.  They are such a waste! I think of all the happy times that the houses must have provided, for these are beach houses, and beach houses are for fun times.

Of course the real reason this bothers me is because I would dearly love to have a house on my favorite beach and these are just sitting there going to waste.  Heavy sigh.

Homemade Cleaner, Follow-up

Today was the day! I made up a spray bottle of one half vinegar/orange solution and filtered water.  I used it to clean the bathrooms and kitchen.  Seems to work well.  The smell was as I expected, mostly vinegar.  I clean with vinegar and am used to it.  It goes away in an hour or so.  I did not smell much orange though.  Otherwise the cleaner worked great.  It even kills ants.  (I am in an ant war at the moment.  Grr.)
Happy cleaning!
