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.

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'll share a variety of pictures taken with the recent painting of the home. These guys were very good sports allowing me to take many pictures. Join me as I share a day in the life of painters and homeowner.
