Scratch & Sniff the Cleaning Solution

Remember the sunflower hint for the give away? Well, scratch that as life happened and my idea for the giveaway didn't work out. Instead, this picture is a clue about what will be given away! No, you're not entering to win a bushel of wheat. Sorry.

I'll be posting about the prize Friday morning or early afternoon so check back then. You are eligible to enter my giveaway by leaving a comment on tomorrow's blog post. In your comment, you must tell me what your favorite or least favorite cleaning chore is and why. If you'd like to become a follower, that would be great but its not a requirement to enter.

Its been a crazy week here and tomorrow will probably be more of the same. I'm scheduled for my annual stress test in the morning and then need to finish doing some deep cleaning.

Does anyone else remember being taught in school back in the 1960's that by the time we were grown up, there would be self-cleaning houses? I keep wondering what happened to that idea! Today I cleaned the entry way, living room, staircase woodwork and part of the dining room. My least favorite "serious cleaning" job is cleaning the wood blinds and I cleaned six of them too. Husband just got done shampooing the living room and dining room carpet.

I smell like cleaning solution, my hands are dry and need lotion and muscles throughout my body are sending me messages like, "What were you thinking?!?" I'm going to stiff and sore tomorrow. I hope I don't smell like cleaning solution when I go to my appointment!

Even if cleaning is not one of my favorite things to do, I'm thankful I can still clean. Thankful I can still get up on a ladder, thankful I can still pick up furniture to move it around and even thankful I can get down on my hands and knees to scrub something if I need to. I may be a little slower but I can still get it done!

Remember, check back on Friday and leave a comment on Friday's post about your favorite or least favorite cleaning chore to enter my giveaway!

  1. Well, Mayleen, you'll test your stress with all that deep cleaning you're talking about.
    Hope your Comment section will hold all my least favorite cleaning chores because I could make a mile long list. :^}
