|De-cluttering is on the agenda.|
|I've managed not to kill this plant!|
Now that spring is here I'll bring another plant home and cross my fingers.
|Time to take stock of bathroom towels.|
I also need to sew up new towels for the kitchen.
|I have to get the laundry room organized and in good shape.|
Why does so much clutter end up in here?
|My clothesline fell down during a winter storm.|
A top priority is to get that fixed and soon.
|Then I can dry the linens outside once more, can't wait, there's nothing like sun and wind for freshening.|
|Meal planning is key!|
It's been a busy winter and I'm feeling off my game with dinners.
I have to scrub the whole kitchen and get a good meal plan on the go.
I'm trying to motivate myself with visuals and a list this morning, I've set aside the whole next week for spring cleaning.
I have so much to do so I think I'd better start at the top of the house and work my way down. I'm going to thoroughly clean and de-clutter every room in the house with particular attention paid to the bathrooms, the kitchen and the laundry room.
How does my laundry room end up in such a mess? It's the dumping ground for all of the unwanted things apparently.
I've been in a real rut with family dinners these last weeks, I need to get my cookbooks out and make some lists of meals and re-stock the pantry.
Hostess asked me for some of my favourite recipes and I'm happy to oblige, it's one of the posts I'll work on this week...
Have you helped your parents down-size to a smaller house or an apartment? We did that this past winter for my in-laws and the whole process really knocked home the fact that it's much easier to keep things clean and tidy with less stuff around. It's that old rule that I must remember: keep nothing that is not useful or beautiful. We just finished the clear-out of their house yesterday so this first day of spring is perfect timing to start a big clean of my own.
Wishing you a happy, beautiful Spring! (Or a wonderful Autumn if you are in Australia.)
Any big cleaning plans up your sleeve?
