I got the blues thinking of the future, so I left off and made some marmalade. It’s amazing how it cheers one up to shred oranges and scrub the floor.
Cleaning day at the Atwood house. This morning I was up at 5:30 and I was ready to hit it and do the really deep cleaning. It felt so perfect to throw open the front door and the back door slider, turn on the fans and left the fresh air flow!
Armed with my deep cleaning vacuum and my homemade cleaning potions, I turned up my iPod and dove in. Moving furniture, doing the deep scrub on the toilets with my pumice stone – I know that sounds gross, but once you’ve cleaned and sanitized, you’ve got the rubber gloves on so go ahead and do the down and dirty scrub with the scrubbing cleanser and the pumice stone to get rid of the unsightly hard water rings.
And what was on my iPod today? Well I’m kind of into musicals, and most of the time I’m a children’s musical nut, so I cranked up Shrek and Wicked and I sang loud as I shrugged the sofa from here to there, sucked up the ceiling cobwebs and scrubbed the floors.
There’s a certain joy that comes in seeing progress being made, and in the whole house smelling fresh like the lavender, wild orange and lemon essential oils I’m using in my cleansers. Here is where I go to get my recipes for cleansers: http://doterrablog.com/spring-cleaning-natural-cleaning-solutions-for-the-bathroom
