I'm hosting a Baby Shower on Saturday. I think it's great fun to plan a party and clearly don't do it often enough. Fixing up my house is a big part of the planning. I'm not sure when I gave up good housekeeping habits but I did. Yesterday I had great fun washing the cabinets. The difference is sparkling. At first I was sad that they were such a mess and that I didn't have a cleaning lady. Then I realized I'm part of a little history in this house. This is not a fancy home and I'd be surprised, knowing all the previous owners, if there ever was a cleaning lady in here. So all of us for 120 years have been washing these same cabinets. It's a fun thought. I'm off to make some more things sparkle.
