spring cleaning the kitchen

  • every now and then Meme has a moment of madness
  • and so I have started to spring clean the kitchen
  • and maybe I should add declutter too
  • my decor now is tea-pots, tea cups and plants
  • I need to toss the tea-pots into the dish washer
  • for a dusting and degreasing
  • before Miss Ashley arrived at my house
  • I only had dust
  • but she is a fry girl
  • and a high heat with no lid kind of cook
  • the good news is she does not cook often
  • unless it involves a can-opener-(wink)
  • there are other things in the kitchen
  • which are taking a hike
  • some I will clean and give Miss Ashley
  • for her home .......
  • and bribe my daughters to take some things
  • (another wink)
  • now that there is only me here
  • other than the gal and her pal now and then
  • I want to have a less cluttered look
  • so that is why I choose the above three
  • as simple decor,,,,,,,,
  • one thing I noticed that some of my
  • small appliances have failed to work
  • any more and I have decided not to
  • replace them
  • a lot of them are really more work
  • than if I did things the old fashioned way
  • this has created more space -and
  • gives me more joy in the kitchen
  • I think it will take about 3 days to
  • clean the kitchen to spring shape
  • -- then if the clean feeling is still
  • hanging around me
  • I will go to the dining room
  • so Meme has sprung into spring
  • and spring is not even here :-)
  • have a good day/night
  • and Meme will return

It feels good to declutter and clean for Spring, doesn't it? I've been doing the same. I've never been one to have many kitchen appliances but a must for me is my electric can opener. Our dog eats canned no salt green beans for treats and if she hears me open a can, she is just SURE it is hers!!!

I LOVE bacon and eggs...I admire you so Meme for your decluttering...I tend to hang on to things...and then need a really big cleanout...Dzintra

I am trying to declutter my home. It is so hard because I am so attached to the things I've been given by my kids and friends.
