Oops - I set the wrong time to publish this post. Sorry this is late in posting this morning!
Recently, I was meandering into our upstairs bathroom to put some makeup on. Just as I was passing through the door, my eyes fell on something I hadn't noticed in a good, long while.
I stopped, backed up and did a double take.
I leaned down to inspect.
The baseboards right there were FILTHY! UGH!
Since I was in the bathroom, I naturally reached under the sink to find my handy cleaners. Tucked inside the bright Dollar Tree bin was a small whisk broom. I grabbed it and went into action.
Running that cute little whisk broom along the edge of the baseboard was easy. It was only about a 4 foot stretch of molding, so it just took a second. But it was so euphoric!
With the baby broom in my hand, I looked around. Hey! There's another section! I fairly floated over to it, repeated the quick motions, and was again thrilled with the instantaneous results.
I realized, in that moment of epiphany, that a clean baseboard is a ticket to household nirvana! It says something about you.
It says: you are the Diva of Clean, the Goddess of Goodness, the Queen of Pristine!
Oh, I like the way that feels.
Today's Small Thing is to dust off the baseboards in one room. You can pick a small room, if you like. But simply take a broom, dust mop or cloth and run it along the top of the molding. With each passing foot, you will start to come alive. And by the time you've circled the room, you'll have to put weights on your ankles to keep you from floating into the sky.
The joy! The rapture! The dust-free delight!
Seriously, you will love it.
