fall cleaning frenzy

I know that most people do their heavy cleaning in the spring, but I've always been a fall cleaning kind of girl.



HaHaHaHa!!! That is definitely not me.

This is a lot more what I look like (except I am in a raggedy old pair of jammies). Work a little, sit down and contemplate, write my blog....................... 

Hmmmm, maybe I need to do a little more working and a lot less of the other things.



Seriously??? I dreamed someone else cleaned my house and when I came home Cameron Mathison was waiting for me in his apron with a glass of wine in his hand. Read here.



SO ladies, I am off to actually clean (Where does all the dust come from?)

In case you happen to be a fall cleaner, too this might just help get you going. I am already singing and dancing.




I promise to have shopping on Monday next week, Well you never know about me. I could be dreaming of a life in Costa  Rica next week.

  1. So funny! I need a good housecleaning myself. I don't know where the dust comes from either!

  2. I think that I am a Fall cleaner also, it's the different light...it shows up all the dust, and bunnies.

  3. Ah, I am a fall and spring cleaner but don't think it is too clean around! And about dust really, why do we need so much of it?!

    Good luck!

  5. Now I will admit - I missed the whole Spring Cleaning ritual this year, so it looks like I'll be joining you for the Fall session.

  6. I'm not much of a fall cleaner. I guess you need to do it when the mood hits. Love the lady dreaming of a clean house.

  7. Cute post! I always clean in the Spring, but I can understand the need to clean in the Fall also. Have fun!

  8. I just like cleaning. I guess I do more of a spring cleaning, myself. And lots after the Christmas decor gets put away.

  9. My place has been a mess while I've been recuperating. So guess when I get out of the boot I'll start tackling it.

  10. Late fall cleaning makes sense to me -- after I've closed up the windows for the winter. Plus then I always have to clean really well before Christmas. I do wish there was a way to eliminate dust! (and dog hair)

  11. It always does a house good to do a major cleaning at some point. I don't really have a specific season that I do major cleaning. I guess I just do it when I feel it needs it. Seems like a do it often too! Ha!

  12. We do our spring cleaning in the fall too. We live in a wooded area so between lanscapers and bugs we do our windows and garage cleaning in the fall.

    The house I am on top of all week, plus the blog, two puppies and MS.

  13. Loved your Fall housecleaning pin up girl. I am so distracted when it comes to cleaning. A friend of mine once told me an interesting plan for cleaning that involved drinking an ice cold beer while you clean. She said the whole house has such a nice glow about it when she's done. Her house always does look nice. I haven't tried her cleaning routine yet. I've got a feeling that it might make me even more distracted than I already am.

  16. I'll take Cameron Mathison in an apron or any other way! haha
    I'm cleaning now, too. We don't really have spring here, or fall for that matter, but as soon as it's cool enough to open the windows I'll be a busy bee.
    Your pin up girls are hilarious.

  17. Boy, you're really making me feel like a lazy bum! lol I have so much stuff to do, but at least it's cool enough to finally not mind working outdoors. Now I've no excuse. :-)

  18. I'm a fall cleaner as well and I agree jammies are the best thing ever to clean in. The only thing I add is now my shoes to the outfit because it hurts my feet to clean without some kind of support. Getting older isn't for whimps!

  19. oh Laura, you are so cute! Computers and I are not friends. I want to create but what I need is a computer wizard in the room with me to do all the techy stuff. hahahaha

  21. Hehe!! These images are so funny - if only I looked as glamorous as that when I cleaned!!

    I'm the same as you - the autumn always gets me in the mood for a good clearout....so satisfying. I think it's because I look forward to the colder weather and feel the need to make lots of space for snuggling!
