Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness - At Least That What Mom Says

I could not agree more.... But there were walls to wipe, cobwebs to remove...
Plates to take down and clean..
Windows to wash....
Dusting of all the knick knacks....
But wait, I forgot to polish the silver! Oops! Oh, and did I tell you that my dryer broke!? It threw in the towel!

The dryer broke? Well, I guess that will delay in in coming to my house to continue your cleaning frenzy... but I will forgive you.

Pink Icing on the Cake said...

You must have gotten a burst of energy, please pass some this way, I could definitely use it. And the dryer broke, that kind of sounds like "the dog ate my homework"!! hehe

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

Tiffany said...

so much to do and so little time... it's the mantra of the modern woman isn't it?

You have inspired me to go do some laundry though...that pile of socks snarled at me I believe.

Brenda said...

Well it all looks nice and clean. Girl how are you making it with no dryer.

Kathleen Grace said...

I have to do my spring cleaning too, probably after my receptioist job ends in mid April. This June is baby daughters graduation open house and I must get the house ready for that! Nothing makes you take a good look at what needs to be done like 150 people at your house for a party!:>) Hope your dryer can be fixed, it is so hard to keep up without one!

OK, let's look on the cheery side. You have amazing things to dust. The camelia bush is beautiful. Tarnished silver is still IN (telling self that). The silver looks great in the Scottie creamer. (Why didn't I think of that?) No dryer? Just wear dirty clothes or go naked. Now, doesn't everything look brighter?

Hugs,
Lallee

Ah yes, the yearning to Spring clean. A few more 55 degree days like today and I will be joining the club! Sorry about the dryer...hope it's an easy fix. :-) Rosie

Mary said...

I keep telling myself that we're all a little healthier with some dust and dirt around -- keeps us from succumbing to the first nasty bug that comes around...

And I can hear my mother in my head telling me to get off my a** and clean!

Have a great weekend!
xoxo,
Mary

Alison Gibbs said...

Your home is so beautiful that it would take some of the sting out of cleaning it for me.

I'm off for Spring break, so I'll be starting my Spring cleaning next week.

I love that scotty spoon rest!

Our Red House said...

"Threw in the towel" ... ha, ha.

Have you an outside line you could use? You probably have the climate for it.

Laura said...

This is all an issue of simple logic.


Dryer breaks= no clothes will be washed
No clothes washed= no clean clothes to wear...
No clean clothes to wear= MUST GO SHOPPING AND BUY CLOTHES...

Must go shopping and buy clothes = NO TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE!!!

Cowboys & Custard said...

Excuses excuses Becky!!
Now your sweet cottage doesn't look like the kind of home where the dust settles for long...
Has Spring cleaning fever taken hold of you?

Looking at your retro sign.. I think I have wasted far too much of my life chasing dust!

New dryer..do tell..is it the green set? lol..My old Kenmore still chugging along..see you like old ironstone too..sometimes I like the potter's mark on the back as much as the classic creamy front! Talk soon! becky up the hill

Susie Q said...

Threw in the towel....oh you silly girl!

Threw in the towel...up the towel...and threw that towel around before it stopped. Now it sits quietly while that towel mocks it.

Poor dryer...poor Becky with no dryer. I hope all is back to normal soon. You may have to quit cleaning and do something else...like read or nap or craft or sing or antique or snuggle Doog or...

Hugs,
Sue
