He Cleaned!!!!!

I'm not sure what got into my youngest son (18).
He actually cleaned his room!
I was in disbelief as I watched him not only vacuum,
but Steam Clean his carpet!
He went through and cleaned out his closet, desk, dresser...everything!
I about fell over when he asked for the Swiffer Duster....




He had piles for the garage, trash and donate...







Like I said I have no idea where this came from......but I have a smile from ear to ear :~)




Maybe, it's because since I have started the Kitchen Cabinet Project (as it has come to be known) that I spoke about at the end of this post, I have not cleaned the house.
You know how it is, you get invlovled in something and
it becomes all consuming.
Not to mention it gets peppered with real life....like unwelcome guests that show up unannounced (Swine Flu), unexpected improvements, like the indoor pool you didn't know you were getting (bathroom drain rusted out), or maybe even an exciting visit to a professional (Tetnus vaccine after bitten by the local stray).
I'm sure you probably thought I had forgotten.
Nope, just plugging along on them!



So believe it or not it has been about
***GASP***
a month since I have cleaned house!!
Horrid I know!


I finished the First Phase of the "Kitchen Cabinets" earlier this week.
SO I took the next day and cleaned top to bottom!
It felt soooo good. That just happened to be the day HE cleaned too.
hmmmm, maybe since I hadn't cleaned for so long
then did, he noticed a difference?
I don't know or care.
Just happy, happy!


Now for a tease...
Here are a few pictures of 
"The Kitchen Cabinet Project"




This is what my Kitchen floor has looked like for the past month....

 

and my hands.....


I'm hoping "The Kitchen Cabinet Project" will be completed
within a couple weeks.
Barring any more unexpecteds.....

Fertilizer Friday! Flaunt Your Flowers!


Here we go with Fertilizer Friday with  Tootsie at Tootsie Time!
Do stop by to see everyone's plants this week.



I went out and took time to really look at my back yard.
Real life has been a roller coaster this past week,
so I hadn't had time to even go out there!



I was pleased to see my Blue Potato Plant blooming


Next there was the Citrus.

Oranges and blooms too!



Blooms on my little Lemon.


A bush Rose



And the Show Off of all......

Show Off Your Cottage Monday

It's the first "Show off your Cottage Monday" over at The House in the Roses
Cielo is our hostess, so pop over for a visit!


I'm going to refer to this past post for today's Show Off.
Everytime I walk into this room, I feel a calm come over me.
I am so in love with it

Mosaic Monday ~ Back roads


It's Monday again so that means,
 another Mosaic Monday over at Little Red House.
Mary is our hostess, be sure to pop over for a visit!



Guess I was feeling a little melancholy when I chose to make today's Mosaic.
I decided to show some barns we have in the area.
Yes, I have a thing about barns too ;~)
Enjoy!
