It's never too late to do spring cleaning!

*Answer to Wednesday's Bible Quiz at the end of this post*
Monday, I did a little "Spring Cleaning" . . . yes, I know, it's mid-July and that all should have been done months ago.  But it seems that this year I've been exceptionally busy and can't seem to put a "Spring Cleaning Day" on the calendar.  Anyone else have that problem?  Well, you may be wondering how I found time to work it in this week . . . it started with a burned out light bulb in my bathroom.  On Monday, several days after the bulb had burned out, I finally got up on the counter to remove the old bulb.  When I reached in to remove the bulb, I found a thick layer of dust on the bulb. . . not only that but I looked in dismay at the layer of film inside each of the glass shades of the fixture and knew I had to take action. . .
 
With Clorox wipes in hand, along with an old rag and a homemade cleaning solution (I'll share that recipe in a later post), I set to work cleaning the bulbs and the rest of the fixture.  Once my alabaster shades on my light were returned to their original clean, white color, I glanced around and decided I might as well do a little more cleaning while I was at it.  After 30 minutes of work, I not only had a sparkling light but also had managed to scrub layers of hairspray & dust from the door, vanity cabinet, trim/baseboards, top of the medicine cabinet & around the trim of the door.  I ran out of time and had to stop there but felt so good about accomplishing that little bit of "Spring Cleaning" that I decided this year I would just tackle those deep cleaning projects one at a time and break them up into small time increments.  Any of you still have "Spring Cleaning" to be done?  Take 20-30 minutes this week and tackle one of those projects . . . I know you'll be glad you did! 
 
*Bible Quiz Answer:
The sign of the Abrahamic Covenant was circumcision.  God told Abraham that he and all of his descendants needed to be circumcised as a sign that they had accepted the covenant with Him - that He would be their God and they would be His people.  This became a physical sign that separated the Israelites from every other people group.  Read more about this covenant in Genesis 17:1-14
