Spring Cleaning

This is me, ready to clean, with my trusty dog by my side, ready to help get in the way! It's Spring, after all!







This is my kitchen:


That's embarrassing. Here's the "After" picture. I can see I missed an envelope of coupons & a plastic bag, bot still on the counter.

I did change out the pile-of-random-stuff for a prettier Spring centerpiece on my "island".

I even had time to make cookie dough for cookies for that tin! Hopefully I'll get the dough made into Easter cookies tonight.

My kitchen table had become a dumping ground for mail & other stuff over the last few weeks. It was severely annoying me.

Hooray! Now have you been doing any spring cleaning OUTSIDE yet? I was doing some yesterday and noticed the first crocuses blooming.
