I've been keeping my cleaning supplies organized in a basket right on top of the kitchen counter. I think I was anticipating more of a mess with the puppy than she's actually creating. What a good Scout she is.
Everyone likes a stack of fresh towels.
Since I'm spending so much time in the kitchen with the pup I decided to use the hours for good not evil. I refreshed the white wooden trim all around the windows: it makes everything look so much cleaner, don't you think?
Speaking of angel-like behaviour, I've been trying to keep up with my New Year's Resolution of eating more cognac filled chocolates:

I'm taking lots of snowy walks in the backyard with you-know-who.
MrBP and Young Rascal have been playing a bit of chess. Young Rascal is the only girl in her chess club. The boys were giving her the gears until she beat last year's champion, hehehe.
It's lovely to sit in the living room while the chess shenanigans are going on because the whole entire room is scented with Reggie Darling's Potpourri:
It's actually Agraria's Bitter Orange Potpourri which Reggie has recommended, well he would never steer us wrong would he? You can read his post on the subject here.
I hope today is the start of a wonderful week for you.
