My first order from Grove Collaborative


So, I found out about Grove Collaborative. 🙂 This online company sells natural cleaning products at a great price. They even sent me some free items! I love to clean and I really like natural products. So, what did I get?……..


First off, I just need to say, I really like how the products are taped up. I’ve had things come in the mail before that have been opened and damaged and just a big mess.

Ok. So, here is what I got:

8 oz bottle of Dr. Bronner’s castile liquid soap–Citrus Orange scent

Method All-purpose/Antibac spray–Bamboo scent

Method Daily wood cleaner–Almond scent

Mrs. Meyer’s Bar soap–lavender scent

Bon Ami Powder cleanser (I’m excited to try this out)

Walnut scrubber sponges–FREE

Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap–peony scent–FREE

Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-surface cleaner–lilac scent–FREE

Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap–lilac scent–FREE (also excited to try this)

My order total was $21.01!!! I think I found my go to place for cleaners. 🙂

My Journal

A couple of months ago, I stopped over to my mom’s house while her and my aunts were going through my grandma’s photos. My grandma passed away in 2010. I miss her a lot. I came across a date book from the late 1980’s. My grandma had an entry for many of the days in that book. The entries were simple and to the point. She jotted down if someone called or if she had coffee with a friend. Little notes about if she cleaned the kitchen, baked cookies for a church function or got a letter from a family member. She also documented the tragic day that my uncle passed away. I found this all so fascinating and I’m so thankful that she did this.

And so, I decided I wanted to start jotting down what happens during my day. Even if “nothing” is going on. I’m finishing up my 2nd month and I’ve already gone back and read a bit from the beginning. I have a terrible memory and so I found myself saying, “Oh, yeah!” I want to continue writing down my days and noting the little things that happen.

I purchased a Traveler’s Notebook and have been keeping my journal in there. Every morning when I get up to have my quiet time, I jot down a bit of what happened the previous day. Just a couple of lines.

Who knows? Maybe one day my kids or grand-kids will have fun reading them.

Do you keep a journal? Let me know down in the comments below.

Dehydrating Watermelon


Today, we are dehydrating some watermelon. I’ve never been one who LOVES watermelon. I’ll eat it, but I don’t get real excited about it. But, let me tell you, dehydrated watermelon is GOOD! It’s like candy. So, how do you do it?

It’s really simple but it does take a long time to dehydrate (obviously….it’s mostly water). Chop your melon into triangles with about 1/2 inch thickness. Lay directly on your trays. Dehydrate between 145-160 degrees for possibly up to 36 hours. You can rotate the trays and also flip the melon pieces over at around 18-24 hours.

The watermelon we are dehydrating today took up 7 trays.


Everyone in our house really likes it. It goes super fast!



Thanks for stopping by HomemakerMeghan! What am I doing writing a blog? I really have no clue. 🙂 For the most part I think I’d just like to have a place to share with others what’s going on at our house and maybe share some tips and tricks along the way. So, stay tuned! Who knows what’s coming next! 🙂
