This year I asked my son if he would get me this lovely cleaner that he gave me back when I was cleaning my tile in the house for the wedding. It is made by a local company and that is what they, Ben and Meg got me for Christmas. 2 1/2 gallons. Ben said that it is the real stuff and you dilute it sixty to one. Ron did the math last night for the bottle I will be using to spay it on tile and grout. One teaspoon. Yep, one tiny teaspoon per spray bottle. I think that 2/12 gallons will last my entire life. I have been playing around with all kinds of cleaners but none work as well as this.
I wanted to share Ben's latest invention. It is called a Rocket Stove.
It is little. See if I can explain it the way he did.
You open that little door and you put twigs and newspaper in there and light the fire. That
heat is then pulled up the center and makes a sound like a rocket. Megan said it boils water for her
tea in nine minutes and has enough heat to cook hash browns in an iron skillet. After the water boils.
You set your teapot or your skillet on this right here. It has a really strong draw because of the chimney.
Megan had posted pictures of it so I thought it was big, but it is just this really little compact stove. One of the things that I like about it is you don't have to use butane or anything like that just twigs. I just thought you might like seeing his latest invention. He never ceases to amaze me at the things he can make.
I have enjoyed reading about your lovely Christmases. We had a lovely day, I never took out my camera except when Ben brought this in the house. Today, though, it just looks normal. Christmas is put away. The house is clean and back to normal. We have lovely winter weather right now. I hope to get some hooking in this weekend. I have missed my hook.
Have a lovely weekend, thank you so much for stopping by.
