Happy Housekeeping...

I recently purchased a Shark floor steamer. I saw the ad on tv and really wanted to get one. I've now had it for a little over one month, and I'm happy to report that I am very pleased with it's performance. Yes, it cleans the floors really really well....and it leaves the floors disinfected. I got mine at Costco and it came with 5 cleaning pads. When I am done cleaning, I just toss the pads in the regular wash, and they are ready to be reused. Before, I would have to prepare a bucket with hardwood cleaner, then I would use Pine cleaner on the bathroom floors. more carting around buckets with water. I simply fill the compartment with water from the fridge that has been filtered, then I use one cloth to do all of the main floors, and a separate one that I keep for the bathrooms. So easy.
I also recently got this adorable Paula Deen percolator at Wal-Mart. There is something about the smell of fresh brewed brings back such fond childhood memories of visiting my best friend's house who's mom always used a percolator. My aunt recently saw this in the Wal-Mart paper, and we went and got a couple. She got the red one and I got the olive green one. We've been enjoying some great cups of coffee together.

Well I'm off from work now until January 5th, so I've got some shopping to finish up, and then hours of gift wrapping....blah. Hope you are all staying nice and toasty. We've been getting some frigid temperatures here in Indiana, with ice covered trees. It's perfect for staying in and sitting by a roaring fire...which we've been doing a lot of these days..


  1. Thank you for your comments on my blog, I hope you and your family have a very happy Christmas and health and Happiness in 2009.

    Take care,

  2. What a great coffee pot! I have a blue one I used for camping. Maybe I better dig it out of the pile in the attic.

    May you and your family have a safe, warm, and happy holiday season!

  3. Hi Rose
    I've missed you.
    I haven't seen you around my blog for a long time :(
    Kisses and have a wonderful week

  4. I've been thinking about getting a Shark so I'm glad to hear it actually works! The previous owners housekeeper used something on the floors that has left a kind of mottled waxy build-up look. I'm hoping that will help to remove it!


  5. Love the floor steamer tip, thank you! Anyway, I just stopped by to say Merry Christmas! Hope you have a great holiday.

  7. Merry Christmas Rose! I like your new "toys" Nancy

  8. I looked for this at our Wal-Mart when I saw it in the ad, but couldn't find it. I'll have to keep checking. Hope you had a lovely Christmas.
    Happy New Year!
