Day 13: Checking it off

I made a list last night before I went to bed.  I walked around the house with my notepad and pencil, jotting down those neglected chores that have been bugging me for weeks.

For example, lately I’ve been looking at our ceiling fans, all of which were looking a bit fuzzy.  I conquered them with an old pillowcase.  Do you know that trick?  Holding the pillowcase open, carefully slide the blade of the fan inside the case, and then slowly wipe the surfaces of the blade as you draw the case off.  Most of the dust will stay inside the case instead of landing on whatever is underneath your fan.

Also on the list were cleaning blinds, wiping down baseboards, wiping down kitchen cabinets, dusting the master bedroom, changing the dust ruffle, sheets, and duvet on my bed, and scrubbing the kitchen floor.

My list is crossed off, my ceiling fans are sparkling, and now I am off to fill my cupboards for the week ahead. 

I hope your Saturday has been either very productive or calmly restful, whichever you needed the most!
