I started with things that disgust me most. The screens in our kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom windows were so clogged with dust, it is a wonder any air got through them.
See this mountain of laundry?
I turned next to the bathroom ceiling. There were all these icky little spots on the ceiling, especially over the tub (I thought grime went down the tub, but maybe it really goes to the ceiling). It's a little hard to see them here.
But it looked much better afterward.
SPARKLING, in fact.
Husband completely outdid me. He added an addition to the house. You exit our front door into . . . a little plywood box.
Here it is from the outside.
Attractive, no? Really, as soon as perhaps tomorrow I will not have a front door at all and will be accessing my house through the garage. The old temporary (if you call eight years temporary) door will go away, and a new door (currently residing in the garage) will appear in it's place. Stay tuned.
