My kitchen is cleaned up and I am ecstatic.
I really am. I didn’t feel very well last week and I didn’t do much. I didn’t feel well, so I really didn’t feel like doing anything and yet, I had a list of things I really was wanting to get done.
And when I don’t feel well and only do the barest of necessities, my house starts looking like it needs a keeper!
I feel like I haven’t been accomplishing very much for the past month. I had this nasty cold. There were several days then, when I didn’t check anything off my to-do list. Somehow, to-do lists always wait on me, though. They are very steadfast about being there, that’s for sure. But, I wouldn’t call them the best company ever, really.
Today, I feel pretty good and I feel like doing some stuff and I am ecstatic to be getting a few things done, that have been bugging me.
My kitchen is completely cleaned up with not a dirty dish in sight. I am sure it is in shock.
I managed to make a couple of recipes for the freezer. Pizza Pockets and Brown Bag Burritos. I have been wanting to stock my freezer with some meals and quick ideas like the two recipes I made today. I was also ecstatic to come across Money Saving Mom’s food for the freezer posts to inspire me for something I was wanting to do anyway. Both of these recipes were on her list.
I baked a pan of Coffee Toffee Bars. Definitely a very important task! We had mocha brownies last night, that my sister-in-law made and the thought of their yummy coffee flavor was still on my mind this morning. We went to a Mother’s Day/Birthday celebration for my mother-in-law last evening and enjoyed homemade ice cream with our mocha brownies.
The laundry has diminished. Well, it has turned from dirty laundry into clean laundry drying on the line.
The sweeper has been out for a spin and a couple of overflowing trash cans have morphed into empty ones with fresh trash bags inside.
I am happy. Not feeling well always, consistently does one thing for me. It makes me grateful. Grateful to feel better. Grateful to be able to work around my home. Grateful for my home.
It also makes me compassionate towards those who don’t feel well most of the time or have a chronic illness or have a handicap that keeps them from doing things that I take for granted.
I still have several things I hope to see accomplished today. I really need to tackle some of our
jungle yard, this evening. I’m sure it has forgotten what a mower is.
I just wanted to pop in and celebrate my clean kitchen! Yay!
