Notice I didn't say "finish." That's 'cause I didn't finish. I did not clean the cabinets over the stove nor over the fridge. I did not clean the lower cabinets. I also didn't get to a couple of drawers.
But good enough is good enough.
I started a bit behind the 8 ball with a messy, messy kitchen.
I did countless loads of dishes.
Finally, I got these counters spotless.
Only to find Emma camped out on them later that night!
That's a paste made up of Dawn dish soap and baking soda. It does an OK job. I used to use it all the time, all over the inside of the oven.
But I don't have to, anymore! When we bought our new range a few years ago, I insisted we spend the extra bucks and get a self-cleaning oven. Woot! Living in the lap of luxury, now!
I cleaned this cupboard.
I found a few things to let go of.
These bowls are the last remains of a set of dishes my aunt bought for me in 1987.
The oldest food I found was a small jar of instant coffee dated....are you ready for it?
Yep. I remember I bought it to make an ice cream cake for my Mother's birthday one year.
That was Friday, my birthday.
On Saturday, I worked.
That night, I cleaned the coffee maker.
On Sunday, I started cleaning with the drawers. But then I went to work.
I saved the fridge for Monday.
And that's all I've got.
Except for today. Today we have this:
I really hope the ceiling looks good painted blue!
