|Friday Night Dinner|
Today, I slept in and then, made Sri Lankan style pancakes at my daughter's request - they are thin pancakes, similar to crepes, sprinkled with sugar and lemon juice and rolled up. Daughter enjoyed at least a couple of them with Nutella and banana slices, as well!
Then, taking advantage of the fact that it is a sunny, warm day and the living room mantel was bare, I did a bit of spring cleaning! I washed the front door, both inside and out, and the insides of the living room windows and window sills. Then, I washed and polished the mirror over the mantel and all the shelves on either side of the mantel and polished two brass decorative items that go on the wall on either side of the mirror. Afterwards, I vacuumed (the living room, dining area, and kitchen).
I still need to dust the rest of the room and put back the items I usually display on the mantel and shelves. But, first, I need to have a cup of tea!
The shelves won't remain empty for long, however, as I return things to their places. But, it does give me a glimpse of how things could look if I declutter some more!
I am very pleased with what I was able to accomplish, today. I had been wanting to do a little deep cleaning in the living room for a long time!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Summer-like weather!
- Getting started on the spring cleaning!
- Fresh lemons and oranges from the garden
- Having plenty of leftovers in the fridge for dinner
- What I was able to accomplish today
Today's joyful activity was making pancakes for brunch!
How is your weekend coming along?
