I know it is only March 5th and still technically Winter, but I am on a Spring cleaning streak. I even put on one of my fancy vintage type aprons to make things more fun. I am doing all those jobs that I put off for as long as I can. Like deep cleaning my Thermadore cook-top which I love and hate. I hate cleaning it but love cooking on it. I have washed, degreased and shined every stinking component on that cook-top. Soaked, scrubbed and polished for 2 days because I am a perfectionist and when I get started on something I can’t stop. I have washed every utensil and my utensil crocks, taking down all my decorative molds and plates and washed and sanitized them. Everything that could fit in the dishwasher has had its turn in there. I don’t want to feel any grit, grease or dirt on anything. We even washed the window over the sink inside and out, that meant Jimi had to go out and stand on a ladder in the snow. What a guy!!! I have washed walls and scrubbed counters and purged junk. I hope this motivation and energy I have stays with me because I am getting so much done. Can’t wait until it is nice enough to open all the windows and clean out every nook and cranny. We are planning on having a huge yard sale too, so I can’t wait for that. I even did a deep cleaning stint in the master bathroom. I know Spring is coming, even though there were some snow flurries, it is not discouraging me, because I know it is right around the corner. Last week, I even bought grape and blueberry bushes and seeds for the veggies I grow by seed, like peas and green beans. I cannot wait to get my hands in the soil and start planting. So what have you been up to? Have you started the big Spring cleaning? What are the things you hate to clean? What are your favorite cleaners or tips? Do share. Let’s keep each other motivated through the big Spring Fling Clean Up!!!
