'Tis the Season...for Cleaning!

On Friday last, Emily and I trekked over to Honey and Pa Pa's for some good ole fashioned cleanin'. What a blast was had!

A spectacular sunrise...this is our view just outside the porch. Sigh...

To Grandmother's house we go...

Emily and Pa Pa filling up a bucket with water for cleansing the cabinets.
Grandpa, turning on the heater for us chilled Florida gals.

Cleaning cabinets requires precision, high-tech tools...such as:
A wash cloth and basin filled with warm, sudsy water.

Simply submerge the cloth in the drink, give it a good swishing, and ring out the excess liquid.

Three cheers for the wash rag! One of a Domestic Engineer's best friends. Hurrah!
A gentle wiping regimen is all your cabinets need to keep them performing beautifully!
Make sure you reach wwaaaayyyyy back in the corners to keep them squeaky clean.

Vacuuming is an art. A skill. A necessity...and not for the faint of heart. :)

First one must assemble the sum of parts required for the vacuum's operation.
Back and forth, back and forth. This is the way we clean the floor, clean the floor, clean the floor! LOL!One must also be very careful not to tangle oneself in the hosery of the device. This could cause a considerable loss in sucking power.

Last, but certainly not least, you must never...

...attack the camera person!!


(PS) Whilst cleaning, we stumbled upon some unexpected treasures. Glory be!!!!!!!!

Our discovered beauties included: triple antibiotic ointment (Ooo), a paper clip (Ahh), and a Gold Dollar (wow, something actually valuable!). What jolly finds!

Have a blessedly grand day everyone!!! : D
