Had been cleaned from top to bottom within the residing room, dining room, and kitchen. Curtains have been washed and fast dried with the great, breezy, sunshiny day. Everything appears so crisp and easy this morning, and the curtains appearance pleasant and white hanging on the sparkling windows. I love to recognize the easy windows due to the fact I recognize earlier than long they may be speckled by means of flies resting on them. They used white vinegar and water to clean them, and that works surely properly.
Last week in the future, daughters Verena and Loretta washed out each my cabinets. On Saturday my sisters Verena and Susan got here to assist so that they helped my daughters easy out shelves. I really liked their help too.
