For the past month (or longer) our home has been neglected and over run with junk, Junk, JUNK. Seriously, where does all this stuff come from? I finally disassembled my craft station, took down all the fall decorations, and threw out three pairs of shoes just because it made me feel good.
When I say Husband and I deep cleaned I mean we DEEP cleaned. I vacuumed the broom for Pete's sake. The bed was moved and the floor underneath went through a dust and dog hair removal process. The sheets changed, everything that has a surface in any room was dusted, and the bathroom is finally sparkling white once again. (Thank you Husband for scrubbing the tub) Three loads of laundry have been put away and the dirty clothes pile is slowly shrinking.
We hang dry all of our clothes in Germany.
Dryers are not too common!
We even went through our "Important" papers box and tossed out a whole bag of useless old letters, bills, and so on. Not so important now, huh? I have vowed this before but I will vow it again, junk mail will no more come through our front door. Do you have papers that just seem to collect and collect in your house? Ugh.
Next weekend Husband and I are putting up our Christmas tree and the decorations will be out on display. Every year before I start my holiday decorating I like to do a good scrubbing on the house. Knowing everything is perfectly clean makes the decorating process much more fun. Having the house deep cleaned, reorganized, and the junk thrown out makes me feel so much more relaxed.
Now then before we can put out those Christmas decorations there is a holiday before that shouldn't be missed, Thanksgiving.
-Roasted Turkey and Carrots
-My Grandma's Apple-Sausage Stuffing
-Homemade Green Bean Casserole
-Husband's Cranberry Sauce
-The American Classic- Pumpkin Pie
Wednesday night I will bake our Pumpkin Pie and a Sweet Potato Gingersnap Pie. (for my staff dinner) Other than that, as I have told you, Husband is in charge of putting together the entire feast. He is a great cook so I am looking forward to a prepared meal.
Have you finished your Thanksgiving shopping? How long was your grocery list? Is your husband partaking in the preparations?
Thankful for a clean house,
