With the cooler weather came a small burst of energy and a desire to spruce things up around the house!
I didn't get much spring cleaning done this year so the house has been in dire need of a little deeper cleaning. I don't know if I'll get a whole "fall cleaning " done or not. Regardless of that, I've been pulling furniture and appliances out and cleaning behind them. A little extra scrubbing, dusting and decluttering goes a long way!
My childcare kids have changed to part-time in the last couple of months so I now have an extra day free each week. I sometimes need to run errands on that day but I'm trying to simplify errand running so I can stay home most weeks and work on projects here.
I was feeling quite energetic this weekend so I was able to get a number of things accomplished:
-cleaned out the trashcans(long overdue!)
-dusted the ceiling fans
-deep-cleaned the bathroom
-rearranged the living room and dusted and cleaned behind furniture
-swapped some pieces of furniture between several rooms for a new look and hopefully better use
-sorted toys and packed up the ones that aren't being played with- I try to keep the toys to a minimum; I've found they only play with certain favorites. Between outside play and planned activities, they are never bored!
-rearranged part of the bedroom-dusted, scrubbed and washed linens
-pulled tomato plants out of the garden; hope to plant some fall seeds today!
-organized kid's art supplies in plastic totes; I finally found a place in the dining room to store them. It will be so nice to have everything close by when we want to use them!
-washed down all chairs including the booster seats(gross!)
Am I the only one who itches to get everything cleaned and ready for cooler weather as soon as fall hits?
