A Busy Day

Today was a busy day. I had photos to upload to show you what hubby and I were up to, but when I tried to upload my photos to the computer, I couldn't. For some reason with all the things that the techs have been doing, the feature that allows me to upload from my camera was greyed out and I have no idea how to fix it. *sigh* However, I do expect that if I uninstall and reinstall my camera software that my problem will be solved. But not tonight...maybe tomorrow.

First thing this morning hubby and I tore the living room apart. We got rid of some stuff that we haven't used in a while and cleaned out all the nooks and crannies. We took down the curtains, soaked them in the washer and went to run some errands. When we returned home, he washed the windows and the sashes and sills and then we ran the washer and put the curtains back up. What a difference it made. Windows are glistening, pine*sol fragrance fills the air and everything looks and feels so much better. Tomorrow we will continue to spruce things up and then clean the laminate floors.

All of this work has left us both exhausted, but at the same time, we're feeling great because everything is beginning to sparkle and we're hoping the living room will be completely cleaned from top to bottom tomorrow.

I'm glad we got this burst of energy. Next, we will do the kitchen. We're hoping for a new coat of paint and the laying of a new floor before Christmas. Time will tell. It depends if our newfound energy holds out.


  1. Congratulations on the new found energy... send some of it south...I need it...

    Glad you had such a good productive day... I spent mine reading...

  2. Good for the both of you! In spite on being tired, I know you feel great!

  3. Hi Mary, I love the new look here!

  4. hey I got a living room you can practice on!! haha

  5. Hope your energy keeps active. LOL.
    There is nothing like a clean home! [cluttered is okay, but clean IS better]

    Are you still thinking of wallpapering the one kitchen wall in reds? I bet it would look so country and cozy!!!!

  6. Well good for you! It does make one feel better to look around at newly cleaned things. And how fantastic that your man had a hand in it. :)
    Hope you get your camera upload figured out. I know after I got my computer back that it took awhile to get the kinks worked out.
    And I LOVE the new look....how cute.

  7. I'm tired just thinking about all of your housework.

  8. Sounds like you guys are sleeping great at night! LOL

    So glad you have the energy and time to do this. I too have been deep cleaning here and there.

    Lots of love

  9. I love having a freshly cleaned house. Good for you and hubby for accomplishing so much. Now you can go into the holidays with less of a hassle.

    I tried to do as much cleaning as I could before my surgery because I know every dirty, little or big thing woud be glaring at me from all over the house.

    Now my family come and do things for me now so I am just being a lady of leisure.

  10. As you say, nothing feels better than to declutter and have a clean house:-) I know it's a lot of work but so worth it. I'm so glad that Dwight is feeling so much better and able to help you with all of that. If I lived near, I'd go help you too...honest! hehe

    It's snowing as I type this but I don't think they're expecting much accumulation. I'm just hoping the weather is clear for the weekend when we go see Lily!! xoxo

  11. I need some of that energy very badly! All I ever get done is undoing what the girlies do when they're here!

  12. Wow, sounds like you all have been busy. I need to get a lot done, too. Maybe I'll get some of your energy.

  13. You have been busy haven't you. I am going to have to start decorating for Christmas soon. But that means taking down all the fall decorations.

    God bless.

  14. It just makes the house feel so good when you do some deep cleaning-glad you guys got some done.
