a clean kitchen.
Jacques Torres hot chocolate with two scoops of ice cream.
some creative time.
What you don't see:
our messy bedroom.
the toddler that just won't nap.
my "I'm cleaning our home" look.
Over the past week or so I have been reorganizing and thoroughly cleaning a little bit each day. It feels like a huge project, when actually we live in a small space and only have so many rooms and closets and cabinets to overhaul. Each day I have tackled an area and let something else I normally do, go. Yesterday I gave the living room the cleaning of a lifetime (I washed the couch. Can I blame this on the nesting instincts of pregnancy or my intermitent bouts of OCD?). And, so there was no time for crafting. Today, I emptied and cleaned our kitchen cabinets (trying to rid of urban house pests...no, not mice this time...something else...). But when reviewing my work-work for the week, I realized it was an unusually light load. So, I took the day 'off' and spent time crafting instead.
It's funny because I feel like I am in a similar mindset as the messy days of December. Hold on. It will soon be clean. But I have cleaning for over a week and the mess seems to shift to another room.
Cleaning is so messy.
