The Finish Line

 All clean and ready for some Holiday action.
 Our poor cabinets could use a face lift after all the years of scrubbing. Maybe someday, lots more savings would be needed to refinish this many cabinets.
 Who knew a bakers rack could hold so much dust.
 This is RARE, our refrigerator is never this bare!!!
Stock up list is ready to rock just as soon as I find the items on sale and hopefully a coupon to boot.
 
The kitchen is done, finished, complete, ready for some winter cooking. Here is a tip on doing a big top to bottom clean in the kitchen. Don't do it on a cold day!! Having my hands in and out of water all day was a cold experience! I keep the thermostat at 62 degrees during the day unless the grands are around. For me that's a perfect temperature when I am running around working but having wet hands all day it was a bit too chilly. I am down to the laundry room and the last spare bedroom to finish before the end of the month. That would be today!
 
The spare bedroom will be a bugger as I have so much stored in there (thrown) for Christmas, attic, charity quilts, the list goes on and on. The laundry room should be quick and easy other than doing inventory of what we might be running low on in the back pantry. Thirty one days sure flew by!!!
 
The family will all be meeting at DD#1 home tonight for Trick R Treat, the grands will go nuts when they see Papaw in his Spiderman costume. He surprised me last night by running into the den and sliding across the floor in it. Holy Cow, Spiderman never looked so......how should I say this.....Hefty. AJ the beagle may never recover from the shock of it all.  There is a time in a mans life that tights should not be worn, hubby has hit that time. However he has the heart of a 10 year old boy and the playfulness of a puppy so he can get away with it.(if you don't look to close) This man of mine, oh how I love him!!!!
 
Time to get my rump in gear and get this challenge finished up. Having the entire house all clean and spiffy will be a great help as we head into November. We have a family vacation coming up as well as a sewing Christmas list that I am itching to get at.

  1. Love your sparkly Kitchen, Debby. The front of my fridge is way too busy compared to how yours is looking. Have fun tonight with the Grands and Halloween; I am envious with mine being 2 1/2 hours away.

  2. Debby - I got my secret sister package (US Mail delivered during Sandy) and I love love love love love it! You are so incredibly talented! I took pictures and will send to Carla so everyone can see what a great secret sister I got! Already started on the cocoa - yummy! The x-mas runner is just so wonderful and I love the x-mas pouch - it will be the perfect place to store the x-mas list and cash! Cup holder is tucked in my bag to use at work and when traveling. Just wonderful. You really put a huge smile on my face. Thanks!

  6. Debby, I am in awe of you. What dedication cleaning from top to bottom and not letting up until you have finished. All within a certain time frame aswell. You put me to shame.
    Love from Mum

    PS When you've finished at Gill's there's an untidy house here waiting to be spruced up.
