It's time to do some cleaning here at Mourning Dove Cottage. Little dust bunnies are in the corners and there are smudges on the windows. A little TLC is needed around here today.



spraying and wiping...






dusting and vacuuming.....



appreciating all the little things we have.


It's always a good feeling to have a clean house. Of course, it's not possible to have a clean house all the time, but every now and then. Giving our homes some tender loving care.



~~~~~~~~~~

I'll be out of town for a few days (that's another reason I wanted to clean....it's always nice to come home to a clean house), and I'll also be away from my computer. But I'll be back next week. I'll stop by and visit then.






In the meantime, I'll miss you.



Otis and Riley said to tell you, they will miss you too, and they'll see you later.

Your little things are lovely Donna! I am walking thru my house with blinders on right now. Still doing that last little bit of remodeling. Once finished I will dust...

Have a great time away!

It is truly a good feeling to come home to a clean house. Yours looks beautiful. We are having a gray, rainy day today and I plan to spend it cleaning and simmering some soup. Enjoy your trip. I will miss you, Otis & Riley too.

Have a good getaway, Donna. Reminds me that I need to do a little buffing and polishing around HERE as well!

Have a nice time away from it all Donna. I agree, coming back to a clean house is so important.

I am here after seeing the lovely portrait you did of Kipper! Adorable -- and it is not easy to capture an animal's expression!

Lovely post... and YES I need to catch up on cleaning after the holidays... but instead I'm running away to Florida for a few days!
