Today's post came to mind from seeing a meme on Facebook with an elderly lady sweeping her yard. Yes, sweeping the yard was a common thing back in the day. I as a child watched my grandmas and Aunt Fannie sweep their yards. I seem to remember them doing this especially hard on Saturdays. Back then chores had to be done and done well to get ready for Sunday.

Is Spring Cleaning on your mind? I know it is! You know we've had lots of home repairs going on here at Hibiscus House and they have made me see how many things I really don't need. I've been purging for awhile and will post updates shortly.

Below are several examples of where and how to increase the storage capacity of your home.

This recipe has been around for so long you probably already have it but just in case you don't I'll share. I've come to find out that people in different sections of the country don't have some of what we think has been around so long everybody knows about it. Sharing today this easy, quick, go to dessert when time is limited. Not your from scratch recipe which is always best but a great substitute!

Today I'm taking a break from painting updates and sharing beautiful Camellias. Do you have some of these in your gardens? Mama had some beautiful ones and my sister Gwen does now. They are filled with blooms that are so spectacular. I love the fact that to me they look like trees filled with roses. Wayne a schoolmate of mine has allowed me to share his beauties with you today.

We are so busy these days and at times just plain tired. Beef with a few ingredients can be added to a slow cooker and then used in many of your favorite recipes. You can also cool and refrigerate for up to two days to use. I think if we take a little time to do these things it makes it easier to prepare meals for our family.
Once you decide what you will be cooking you can prepare the other ingredients. Just store them in the fridge until use in the meal. This will make fixing your meal a snap! You can then work with peace of mind, knowing that your meal will be easy tonight. You may want to just relax or go shopping, it's up to you.
