Wrong Woman

I have a confession:  I think Mr. Keller married the wrong woman!

If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ve probably realized by now that Mr. Keller enjoys agriculture.  He likes driving tractors, working on them, planting and harvesting our farm, baling hay, and taking care of the cows  I enjoy domestic hobbies like cooking, baking, reading, and gardening, and in spite of growing up on another little mini farm, I have absolutely no experience in driving tractors–not even rider lawn mowers.

Chad running the baler

In spite of my lack of agricultural interest, I found myself driving a tractor this past week.  Not only was I driving a tractor, I was running the baler and pulling the hay rack that Mr. Keller and the kids were on.  Me!  Running the baler!

For the first thirty minutes or so as I drove the tractor through the field, all I could think is that clearly Mr. Keller either married the wrong woman or he needs to make more friends who can help him!  After that point, I reminded myself that Mr. Keller needed my help, and I could do this.

It’s a family affair

We got the baling done, and I even felt proud to have assisted.  I’m nottelling anyone where the field is that we baled, though, because if you checked, you’ll find a lot of hay on the ground yet.  It turns out that I’m not very good at turns!  Mr. Keller had me completely worried.  He told me before we started that I had to take wide turns (whatever that means when you’re pulling a baler and a hay rack!) in order to avoid harming the PTO shaft.  I took wide turns, but I left about half of each line of hay whenever I turned.  Regardless, we still baled more than 100 bales that night!  Not bad for my first time.

I’m not really the wrong woman for Mr. Keller.  I just have to expand my skillset.  I’m sure I can handle it–at least until BK is old enough to drive the tractor on his own!  Marriage is all about being one another’s helpmates.  It sometimes means going out of one’s comfort zone, and I certainly did that!

Norwex Cleaning Paste Review

It doesn’t get better than Norwex Cleaning Paste!  This stuff is spectacular!  I honestly use it every day.Norwex Cleaning Paste

Norwex Cleaning Paste is so simple to use!  It’s a natural and environmentally friendly product that you can use to clean just about anything!  It’s active ingredients are Marble Flour, Natural Soap and traces of Coconut Oil.  It actually smells like lemon.  Delicious!

When it arrives, you might be surprised to find that it’s a solid.  Yes, even though it says paste in the name, it arrives as a solid!  This is actually a good thing.  It means that it’s very concentrated!  You’ll actually take your wet Envirocloth or spririsponge and dab some of the Norwex Cleaning Paste onto it.  From there, you can scrub away!

In our house, we use the Norwex Cleaning Paste on everything!  I’ve used it to take the black marks off of the bottom of my pots and pans, shine up chrome and stainless steel, and even my sink basin.  I use it the most often with a spririsponge to clean off my glass stove top!  It’s food safe so you can use it in your kitchen without any fear.Norwex Cleaning Paste

Think outside of the box with this product, too!  The Norwex Cleaning Paste is wonderful for cleaning up lawn furniture and removing permanent marker from walls and tiles.  Shockingly, it will even clean up the rubber on a pair of shoes!  Have gross grout lines?  It’ll clean that up, too.Norwex Cleaning Paste

Though it doesn’t look very large, I have found that it lasts months.  As I mentioned, we use it daily, and I’m just now finishing a container that I bought in January, 2015.  I definitely feel as though I got my money out of it!  I also feel good about the fact that it’s all natural and safe.  There are no harmful chemicals in this highly effective product.

I have found the Norwex Cleaning Paste to be my most versatile and absolute favorite item from Norwex (second to only the WindowCloth!).  I highly recommend this product!

Please note:  It is not safe to use on brushed stainless steel, aluminum, wood, nickel or pewter, gold, or silver.  Also, there is a 60 day warranty on it.
