Springcleaning - Week 1 - Thursday

I herewith pronounce the kitchen FINISHED!

I admit that it was a bit of a struggle to begin cleaning today. Let's face it, I am tired. I have been going to bed around or before 9 pm every day this week and I am not as young as I used to be. ;-)

Anyway, I finally got started on cleaning the last part of the kitchen. I washed the cabinets, cleaned the woodwork around the windows, cleaned the windows - inside only, they are too complicated for me to try anything else and one of them no longer opens because the rope is broken and we would have to dismantle half the kitchen to repair it, so not worth it. I cleaned the microwave (again, much cleaner than I expected), ran vinegar through Mr. Coffee and cleaned him as well. Then I washed down the counter and the backsplash, cleaned the the spice rack and that was it.

I will be taking tomorrow off from cleaning. I need to bake bread and make plans for our weekend which will be pretty full if all goes as planned. And I want to work on some decorations for Easter, research some recipes online, etc. I also want to spend some time in the porch with my lovely ladies, reading or stitching.

Spring cleaning will resume on Monday with the dining(train) room.

The girls don't look like THEY are working very hard. Enjoy your mini vacation from cleaning.

I wish I had your energy! It must feel good to get so much accomplished though.
