Freeze Clean

We are having quite the winter here in Texas. We have had snow a couple of times and several days in a row where temps stayed below freezing for more than a minute! This is just totally out of character for my hot and humid hometown. I am not sure what to think about this atypical behavior. Usually we light the fireplace and enjoying sitting and looking at the warm flames, but only for cosmetic purposes. We never use it as an actual source of heat. I usually admire winter coats and imagine what it might be like to be forced to wear these on a daily basis; I can even be found trying them on on occasion when I am shopping. Never would I have thought that my puny little "snow" coat would not quite be warm enough here in Texas to venture outside. When running an errand on this below freezing day, I bundled up Baby DIVA in multiple layers to keep her warm only to find she didn't fit in her car seat. Awesome! Even "Texas" car seats are not prepared for real winter weather.

So all this cold and all this being trapped inside where the warm of the heater and fireplace keeps me in line has invoked an inner demon. The cleaning demon! I say demon because this bully is kicking my butt! I have been furiously going through cabinets, drawers and closest. Boxes and bags galore. The entire house is getting a once over full clean out and re organization. All the furniture is being moved and re situated after a solid cleaning. All the closest, drawers, cabinets, boxes and bags are being organized and labeled. This cold weather is great for my house but not so great for me, I am exhausted!

But my home is looking rather swell, if I do say so myself!


  1. Yay for cleaning! I hate doing it but love the way it feels after it's all done and I can go into drawers that are all nice and organized.

  2. I went to school in Missouri and one of my best friends was from Houston- she resisited a winter coat every year. Swore her hoodie was just fine. We'd be out chipping ice off of our cars and scraping windows in an ice storm and she'd be standing there with her hoodie...crazy Texas girls!

  3. See, I wish the cold did that for me but it just doesn't...guess when you're in Maine and it's cold ALL WINTER you'd rather sit on the couch with a hot beverage! ;) I wish the heat did that for me but then I just want to sit on the couch with a cold beverage(and A/C of course);p


Tell me something Fabulous...
