A Beautiful Day

I am having a beautiful day and wanted to share something beautiful with you. I only wish they were real. (Can't you just imagine how wonderful this bouquet would smell?!)


I was thinking yesterday that if I have to put up with cold and snow and wind, at least I'm in Utah. The sun comes out in January here. Lots. Lucky me! I also cleaned my master bathroom yesterday. It's not big, but it hadn't been deep cleaned in a long time. It took me all morning, but it's done and sparkles. Even Jeff noticed. The best part (ok-besides now I'm not scared to take a shower anymore) is that the whole time I was able to keep the window wide opened and never got cold. Today, more window are being opened. Fresh air will be coming indoors. :)


Monday I cleaned my own room. Not as bad as i thought it'd be. Last night we helped the kids clean their rooms. I woke up to a clean main floor. Those flowers are almost as beautiful as that feeling.


Today, it's time to tackle the basement. Dust, vacuum, windex (the TV). It's all gettin done. In fact, it's all done. Except the playroom. That's next on the list.


Wonder what brought on this sudden burst of cleaning? (Because, let's face it. Keeping a neat and tidy house is just not my forte. It's ok. ) It's my vacuum. My old $60 Eureka from Shopko died. I was insistent on getting a bissell. That was the brand of our first vacuum which lived with us in all four of our homes. It was a good friend of mine. Sniff...Ahem.. Anway. We searched out different brands (trying to be opened minded) and price ranges (wanted something good that would last a while) and got our beautiful new (shiny red) Bissell. It cleans my floors wonderfully. When those are done, I am so happy I decide to move on to dusting or making beds or...You get the point.


Life is good. Have a great day. Glad you're my friends!!

Thanks for the cleaning inspiration. I NEED IT!!!
I did a great job on one day last week, but got burned out. OH, lazy housekeeper, me...
My excuse shall be that I've been getting laundry done. That's good, right?

I can't get it done in front of the TV. I used to, but I never take it away from the TV.
I do it in my freezing cold laundry room as quickly as possible, on my feet.

Bravo, Ang! Having a clean house does wonders for your mood.
Hey, I was sorely disappointed to see that I didn't have any junior high pics of you. What's up with that?! Maybe I need to pull out my yearbook and find a few. (J/K) I know you would do paybacks if I did that. Ü

Ang: Is this the the Christmas vacuum that Jeff got you? Didn't he watch that video about the dog house???

I love the new vacuum! My goal this year has been to just keep the living room/great room clean all day. It's been nice to wake up to a clean house, although I don't touch Sariah's room, too scary, and Luke's, I will get there one day!

Hey, come on Karson, the Vacuum is a bagless, HEPA filter wonder. Always makes a nice gift.

That is definitely one thing that Alex and I want sooooo badly. Vacuum... the little things you take for granted.

There is nothing better than a clean house. Too bad I can't keep it that way more often. Love the flowers by the way. So happy!
