I don't know what has gotten into me but I have spent most of the day scrubbing this house from floor to ceiling. I think the last time I did this was the week before I had Kate. Those of you who know me know that I am a clean FREAK. I was on my hands and knees scrubbing floors and cleaning up those lovely dust bunnies that hide under beds and desks. Washing windows, scrubbing bathrooms, making the oven look brand new. Everything is CLEAN! I washed everything, hosed the front back back down. You get the point. I even had time to sit down and pick out the tile and such things for our guest bath that we are re-modeling next month. Man, it feels good. It feels like a spring day, I had the windows open with the fresh air blowing in with my jazz music on while Kate napped like a queen! She is amazing at naps. I am blessed.

I definitely feel like a housewife tonight as I sit here with a happy baby in my arms, a clean house and dinner made. I am so thankful for my husband giving me this luxury of staying home and so thankful for God's provision!

I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
