I have to laugh at myself sometimes, I try so hard. I knew I had a rough day ahead of me. A day full of housework, deep, down dirty housework. So, how could I make it more fun for me? It started with an apron, the apron I bought in Paris, in a shop across from the Notre Dame. Then I turned on my Febreeze machine. That machine is amazing. It puts into the air scents I never even knew existed, but that make me feel oh so good about life. Get out the cleaning caddy. It's bright blue & stocked with my favorite cleaning supplies. If you're going to clean you might as well do it in style. Turn on music. I was feeling.......Mozart. I had gotten a free CD in the mail so figured it was a great time to try it out. Then I remember Mark mentioning something about flowers outside & I grabbed a pair of scissors & headed out to look for them. Lo & behold, in our very own yard, flowers someone else planted that ended up brightening my day in the most magnificent way. I picked out just the right vase for them out of my collection of pitchers & vases that I treasure & voila! A touch of spring to my housecleaning day. Perfect.
