Morning temperature of 5 degrees,
the sun is shining and that is wonderful.
The beginning of deep cleaning is in process.
Just finished refrigerator and it seems much thrown out
because of dates. Use a lot of items but not much of many
because of the difference in my life at this time.
Seems the use date arrives quickly.
Drains in sinks have been cleaned with vinegar, baking soda and hot water
and surely everyone knows to use this.
Bathroom gone over with 100 Team Borax which makes everything sparkle
and some baking soda.
Bed linens in washing machine and seems linens are not like in the past.
When home in town was built I bought sheets and duvet from the
Pottery Barn and in a short time both had imperfections.
I still have a few sheets that were purchased when I lived in the really
big house with family 25 years ago and they are still being used. Percale and now feel
Soon will go over all the old furniture with Murphy's Oil Soap and then in a few
days will nourish everything with Lemon Oil.
Have just ordered cotton flat baby diapers, they are the best for cleaning mirrors and windows
with no lint left behind. I have to be careful and keep them separate or they might
be picked up and used for dusting - these are only for mirrors and windows and occasional help uses newspaper. The ones I have are over 4 years old and will use for dusting. I do not like paper towel - too much lint left behind. Also with gas heat it seems mirrors and windows are now getting
a light film on them....
Will slowly go over everything in this home and when the day arrives that
something is peeking out of the soil - I will be outside :)
One of the few luxuries I enjoy at this time
is a hot bath with fragrant Bedadas, it last forever ( a very small amount and your tub is
sparkling when emptied) Many years ago I used Vita Bath that was just as good
but a few years ago after doing some research I found out Bedadas, it is about same
and less expensive, from Germany and I order from Amazon.
My Beth gave me some Lavender
soap and lotion from Thymes for Christmas and I love it....
Seems my what brings me pleasure list at this time of life is so simple.
Difficult to believe that 4 1/2 years have gone by so quickly. That is when construction on
this small home began. That winter a day was never missed on the building site with very mild
weather. Callie a year old when I found her at the shelter with a chain around her neck that had
to be removed with a saw :) so this Fall she will be 6 years old.
So - the beginning of Spring cleaning has begun and in the past it took several weeks and now
at this time of life it will take several months :)
On a pleasant day need to clean garage and soon car and truck need to be cleaned
As long as the sun is shining and I cannot be outside
I enjoy doing this.
