|Dirty dishes from all my baking...|
Ha! Not sure where I got that ambitious notion. In order to accomplish that, I really would have to put everything besides the basic daily tasks aside, which I have been unwilling to do. In fact, after a couple of days of diligent cleaning, I got on this baking kick and wanted to spend lots of time in the kitchen cooking scrumptious things (and dirtying dishes!). It was lovely...I made banana chocolate chip muffins, peach pie, and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Spring-time gives me a baking itch!
But--*AHEM*--back to the topic at hand (now that I need to finish spring cleaning and work out!).
Here's how my list of spring cleaning tasks is going (crossed-out items have been completed!):
1. Squishy's Closet.
2) Our closet and
3) Bookshelf in Squishy's bedroom
4) Squishy's chest of drawers
8) My recipe binder
So, I'm actually half-way done! Whoo-hooo!
All of my before/after pictures aren't ready for you yet, but I'll give you a little peek at what I've accomplished and save the rest for next week's update (super suspenseful, I know...hang in there with me...ha!).

Bathroom cabinet after:
*sigh of relief* That was just a little job, but doesn't it make everything so much better? I found the basket at Goodwill for 97 cents, and it definitely helps things stay more orderly.
I probably won't get much cleaning done today (besides the basics!), because I'm baking bread and canning jam! Yay! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. Who knew someone could get so excited about fresh strawberries and canning supplies? My husband thinks I'm hilarious.
Ok, I'd better sign off now before I turn this into a cooking post.
How's your spring cleaning going? Any small or big successes?
