"My theory on housework is, if the item doesn't multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you?"—Erma Bombeck
A clean house is my inspiration today. Truth be told, I don't clean house as much as I'd like to. It's low on my priority list. However, if guests come for dinner or a barbecue, I do a thorough clean.
I love having guests over not only for their company, but also because I know I'll clean house and it makes me feel good to clean. I am able to focus better when things are clean and organized in my home, but they only seem to be really organized when people are coming over. Isn't that funny?
I also love dreaming up menus for guests. My favorite one this summer has been to prepare Korean Kalbi on the grill. I like it because not many people make Korean ribs for guests and they are absolutely delicious.
Besides cooking, I washed the bed sheets and all the linens, cleaned the bathroom, mopped, swept, organized. I see that there is still so much to do, but it's a step in the right direction. Now that the house is clean, I'm inspired to dig deeper into the closets, etc. and clean more. We'll see how long that motivation lasts.
Do you clean your house frequently or only when guests come for dinner? ^_^
