Today was a glorious day! I love it when I have the house all to myself and today was one of them! My guys went to a work day at our church and I had a work day here at our home. It was wonderful!!
Sometimes a woman just needs time to herself. She may soak in a tub, garden to her hearts content, work on a craft project or, in my case, spring clean her final set of cabinets! I also managed to straighten the house, do a couple loads of laundry and watch Fiddler on the Roof on my computer while I cleaned the kitchen.
I thought these cabinets would be the easiest and they were the hardest. Go figure!! I wanted to rearrange the cabinets to better suit me and my aging body. I am the world's worst when it comes to arranging cabinets, bookcases, desks, closets and drawers. I just can't seem to order things correctly. I did manage though...
A great many things in this drawer went in the trash. I cannot understand why I keep things I know I will never use.
This cabinet has always been a pain to retrieve cookware from...but no more! I ended up having to take a pain pill and go take a nap after this cabinet. I twisted incorrectly and my knee let me know it! I was afraid that I may not be able to finish, but when I woke up my knee was no worse than before, so I just continued on.
Once again, this cabinet gave up a great deal of stuff to the trash and the church yard sale bag.
I could not believe how bad my microwave was but it is shining now!!
Actually everything here got a good scrubbing! The only reason I do not like cleaning my grain mill is when the rubber seal is clean it makes opening and closing so difficult. It was in bad need of cleaning so I will just be toning my muscles for awhile.
So, not only are my cabinets clean inside and out, but I had some very productive me time. There is something about being alone in our home and putzing and piddling doing what I want. The sounds are mine, the music is mine, the movie choices are mine....it just recharges my batteries. I don't need this alone time everyday...just every now and then. I was actually excited to see my guys come home! That , too is a wonderful feeling!
