Fall Cleaning...

Today the heat is gone! Winds are whipping in that northern breeze and it feels awesome! But here in Texas we haven't seen a drop of rain in so long the winds are a bad thing. Yesterday so many fires happened across our state and they say today will be worse due to humidity levels dropping. I pray for everyone who suffered from the fires of yesterday and ones today that their families are safe.

Now on to what I've been up to this last week. The yucky carpet is gone from the master bedroom and new hardwood floor takes its place. (post with pictures coming soon)  Today I've been slowly going through everything we took out of the room and stowed in the spare room. Ugh! I'm throwing things away and reorganizing the rest trying to not let things creep back into our bedroom. We will see how that goes!

I then sat and thought of a list of chores that needs to be done... I'll call this my fall cleaning list!
After hibernating under the air conditioners all summer there is a lot to do.
1- remove all blinds and wash with soap and water
2- remove all curtains to wash
3-all bedding removed, washed and vacuum the mattresses
4-move furniture and actually sweep then mop the area (instead of just around)
5-vacuum entire couches and under cushions
6-clean the tv stand in living room, dust and wipe with damp cloth
7-clear out old DVD's (ones we don't watch) and reorganize games and controllers
8-reorganize kitchen cabinets
9-clean out and wipe down fridge
10-go through and clean out bathroom cabinet
11-tackle son's bedroom (have lots of trash bags at the ready and maybe a face mask with gloves) :)
12-guest room/ craft room... remove everything that can be stored in the shop outside, throw things away that should have been thrown away long ago and reorganize everything. Figure out what to do for a twin bed frame for this room.

So much to do but I have one foot in the door by getting started today. Wouldn't it be great if it was as fun as this................
