I love my husband! There are so many reasons why I think he is so great, but here is one of them: He goes with the flow as I make a complete mess in the kitchen! He doesn’t gripe at me about it, or banish me from this room I now love so much. 🙂
I don’t mean to make a mess…really I don’t. But it never fails. I will be cutting an avocado and it will fall on the floor. Or I will be pouring some flour and somehow it ends up in plenty of places besides the bowl. And you all know what happens when I use honey! My hubby has been witness to this…I think he just sweetly feels much compassion for me.
All that to say, I have been cleaning….and I mean spring cleaning. I scrubbed, I washed, I mopped, I organized…you name it. In order to fully appreciate that I have spent at least 5 -6 hours cleaning the kitchen, here are a few before pics. I wish I had more!
Avocado on the floor
Tomatoes and onions on the floor
Red quinoa on the floor…everywhere
I think this is tapioca flour….I don’t keep it in that container you see there, so it certainly shouldn’t be on the outside of it! 🙂
Okay, here are the “after” pics….”after” 5 or 6 hours that is 😉 …
I am so excited about this! I found a basket in our house and used it to organize all my flours and other ingredients that I use daily!
What I am most thrilled about is that this is a total surprise to my hubby! He gets home tonight from being out of town and I really wanted to do something to bless him!
Now you know why I have not been on my blog…I have been so busy cleaning. I just texted my mom and told her that I don’t think I have ever worked this hard in such a short period of time! 🙂 Besides the kitchen, I spent hours in my hubby’s home office cleaning, shredding, organizing, and filing. I have thoroughly cleaned every bathroom, even all the rugs. I have swept and mopped 5 different floors, vacuumed the entire house, dusted all the furniture, cleaned the dining room and living room, and even killed spiders….ugh!!
And through it all, I have just felt so happy to do it! (No, I don’t always feel happy about cleaning. 😉 ). It just feels so good to know my hubby will come home to such a clean house! Makes my heart happy!
Now if only I could get better at not making such a mess when I cook…. 😉
