Memory Verse for the week (Feb 21-27):

Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.
1 Samuel 12:24
Spring Cleaning, Week 1 - The Bathroom (and Hallway Closet)

Do to the quirky British custom of having a toilet in one room and a sink and bathtub in another, my bathroom cleaning plan might sound a little funny at times. Without further ado and in an order that will NOT be strictly adhered to, I give you THE CHECKLIST:

  1. Dust ceiling and walls of both rooms
  2. Sort through bathroom cabinet and toss excess
  3. Clean cabinet inside and out (and on top)
  4. Organize and clean both window ledges
  5. Sort through bathroom literature and recycle outdated magazines
  6. Organize and clean toiletry hanger in the shower
  7. Clean shower and tub
  8. Wash shower curtain
  9. Clean sink
  10. Clean toilet
  11. Clean ledges behind toilet and sink
  12. Wash rug
  13. Restock toilet paper in basket
  14. Replace old hand towel with a clean one
  15. Take out trash and put in new trash bags
  16. Vacuum the floors
The more things on my list, the more I get to check off. I feel like singing the Count Dracula's counting song on Sesame Street.

  1. Take all linens out of closet
  2. Wipe down shelves
  3. Vacuum the dust bunnies out of hidden spaces
  4. Sort through linens and eliminate excess
  5. Replace everything in a sensible order
  6. Stand back and survey the work
  7. Sigh with relief - and try not to dread the work that the kitchen will require
