The little things… day 4


Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.  ~Phyllis Diller, Phyllis Diller’s Housekeeping Hints, 1966


I’m grateful for…
The dirty dishes.  It means we had a meal.

I’m letting go of…
Moments of frustration when flour is all over my kitchen (floor, fridge door, oven handle, stove, counters, sink, dish rack, toaster, coffee maker, tea-pot.. everything!).

  1. Your post reminds me of the time my other half spilled parmasean cheese every where in the kitchen and picked it up with the dust buster. For a while you could smell the cheese when turning on the dust buster – still laugh about it – ha! Have a Good Kind of Messy Day:)

    • That happened to us too, except it was garlic powder! It’s been 2 years and we still laugh about it because the smell has not gone away from the buster! You have a great day too!

    Love today’s quote and I will practice the same when flour is all over our kitchen, which is more often than I like, but the outcome is always so good :)
