Reclaiming my Home



Det har ikke blitt mye strikking de siste dagene. Jeg har vært opptatt med å vaske, rydde og kaste ;) Inne på forumet Reclaiming the Home er jeg med på Ultimate Household Challenge. Denne uka har det vært badet som skulle til pers. Og du så godt det var når jeg var ferdig. Det ble så mye lysere, friskere og renere! Og så ble jeg kvitt ting og tang vi ikke bruker.
Neste uke er det et annet rom som skal vaskes og ryddes. Håper at vi kan gå våren i møte med et renere og ryddigere hjem. Er utrolig hvor mye skrot en samler på!


It has been little knitting this last week. I have been busy cleaning, washing and decluttering ;) I have joined the forum Reclaiming the Home and I am participating in the Ultimate Household Challenge. This week we have been deep cleaning the bathroom. And I was so happy when I was done. The bathroom got so fresh, clean and bright! And I got rid of a lot of things we don't use.
Next week there is another room to deep clean. I hope we can meet the spring with a cleaner and more tidy house. It is amazing how much clutter one can collect!

Ønsker alle som er innom ei strålende helg med noen bilder av kaktusen min som endelig etter mange, mange år har fått blomster :) Aner ikke hva denne heter, men blomstrene er så fine!

I wish all of you a great weekend with these pictures of my cactus who finally has got some flowers after several years :) I have no idea of the cactus name, but the flowers are beautiful!

  1. Litt av en utfordring å gå gjennom hele huset og rydde! Jeg er en samler og har alt for mye skrot :)

    God helg! Ser ut som det blir finvær her i nord :D

  2. That's a great idea - to clean up with companions, even if they are only in the Blogosphere. ^^

  3. Wow, that sounds terrific!!! It must be fun to know a group of on-line friends are all cleaning right along with you. :)

    I have one of the cactus plants too - we call them Christmas Cactus because they are supposed to bloom at Christmas time. (Mine always blooms in November though!)

  7. Oh what a GORGEOUS cactus!!!!!! I wonder how long it will bloom.....

    And deep cleaning one room a week. I could do that! lol. I get so overwhelmed with the big picture sometimes, but breaking it down like this would work for me. I think I'll join you on this challenge. ;)

  8. Er ikke dumt å konsentrere seg om små områder med husarbeid om gangen. Jeg er med på noe lignende, er en spirende flybaby (se www.flylady.net)

  9. I used to have one of those cactuses (cacti??), it was called Christmas Cactus because it blooms in winter. There is also a white variation called November Cactus, the leaves look the same but the flowers are white :)

    Gosh, I need to declutter and reclaim my house too...

  11. You might just have inspired me to reclaim my home! I'm remembering how lovely it feels when everything is freshly scrubbed and tidy. Right now, though, I'm struggling through reclaiming my inbox ;)

  13. I would love to have more time to clean my house! Piles are building up everywhere, books, fabric, yarn....Nice photos of cactus.

  14. Doesn't it feel sooo good to take things one room at a time and just clean the daylights out of it? Beautiful cactus!

  16. Önskar att jag kunde vara lika flitig som du - ett rent och städat hem är väldigt trevligt. Speciellt när vårsolen skiner. Fina sockor o mycket annat du stickat.
