Spring Cleaning

I know that we have only finished the first week of January but, it feels so much like March I started to clean  out my kitchen cupboards and de-clutter. How many glass bowls and mugs does one really need? I now have a nice big box of "stuff" started and will donate it  to a local charity shop.  Window cleaned, curtains washed and ironed and hung back up all nice and  spic and span.  Tackling the buffet cupboard in the dining area now, well,  not right now as I am taking a break with a cup of tea.  I am on such a roll thinking the bathroom vanity may be next.

Do not have to think about any dinner tonight.  Our quilting guild Christmas dinner and gift exchange is at a local restaurant this evening, looking forward to that, haven't seen any of the "girls" since the November meeting. That reminds me I should start to make the charity quilt block for our January meeting.

Tea all finished, so must get up and move before all my "get up and go" has gone.

I keep finding places that need a good clean. Then, I close the door on them. But, I do have some of them on the schedule to get a good annual cleaning out. Next is the chemical storage can cleaning supplies get so dirty??? Lane

I know what you mean. I feel like I am 'nesting' before the baby comes although I am waayy past childbearing years. I could not sew until I got to a certain point of clearing out and cleaning. Hope this cleaning lasts a long time because I am ready to do some quilting.
