Friday Frenzy:) More Cleaning, Organizing and the Magic Broom Trick

22 Feb

A new broom sweeps clean, but the old broom knows the corners.

Irish Saying


After my craft organizing yesterday, I thought I was done, but noooo. I had been thinking about all the magic broom tricks I’d been seeing on Facebook. If you’re not familiar, people were posting pictures and videos of an average broom standing straight up, all on its own, using gravity or inertia or magic. Either way, I thought it was kinda silly and I didn’t get all the hoopla. Personally, I thought if I get up the gumption to even get my broom out, it would be to sweep the floor. (Which is a miracle alone right there.)

Since I was feeling productive yesterday, I got up the courage to get out my broom. And guess what? While I was searching for the dust pan, I stood the broom up AND it did stand up all by itself.

Magic…Watch the video below…

After sweeping all the floors in the kitchen, hallways, and bathroom, I noticed all the spots and spills on the afore mentioned floors. 🤦‍♀️ so, I got out the mop. Bella was kind enough to follow me around from room to room to make sure I was doing it correctly, and to leave little paw prints in her wake.

While I was still on a roll, I cleaned both bathrooms downstairs and scooted upstairs to clean those two bathrooms. Are you exhausted yet? After all that cleaning, spraying, chemicals, cleansers and mess, I had enough time to jump in the shower before heading off to karaoke. I was a busy gal.

Needless to say, I slept very well last night. I got up, walked the dog, and wanted to get over to church for Adoration before going to Zumba class at 11:30. I got to church by 11 and lit a candle afterwards, then scampered off to the YMCA for Zumba class. Maria was subbing and it was quite the workout. Very fun, but I was sweating. Cool! I asked Doug if he wanted to stop for lunch at McD’s after class, so we had a nice visit.

I had promised Miss Kathy over at Towne Creek that I’d stop by today to clean out and organize the art storage room where we keep all our art and craft supplies. Someone had given her a bunch of craft supplies for our art group, but the shelves were stuffed and overflowing. The fire Marshall inspector usually dings us when he comes to inspect every year. Since I was on a cleaning and organizing frenzy, why not go over there and straighten up.

If you sneezed in there, something was going to spill out. I spent about three hours and actually made a little room on the shelves. That’s the good news. The bad news is, I brought home three big bins of stuff that are piled up in my garage. 🤦‍♀️

It’s been a long busy day, but a good day. It always feels good to get organized.

Now, to put my feet up and enjoy Black Russian Friday… at last. CHEERS!
