SPIC and SPAN, NEAT and TIDY

Kate had a preschool teacher named Heidi, who quickly became a family friend.  Every afternoon she would chant ... spic and span, neat and tidy ... that's what makes a Happy Heidi!

So today was get the house together a little for Lindee and John.  I think I better invite visitors every month just so the house gets cleaned!!  


It's a double/full size futon with a 3" foam topper.  It folds up into a chest as we thought we would use that room for an office when we didn't have visitors.  That quickly went by the wayside as it wasn't convenient for us to have our files and our printer in there with friends.  It has a dresser at the foot of the bed with a TV on top.  A luggage rack in the corner there and a chair to use as another luggage rack or for whatever.  And LOTS of closet space!!  Not the most comfortable bed in the world but I've only had two complaints ... and one was ME!  

For some strange reason I decided to clean out my bathroom vanity.  Yikes.  Today I bought some clear plastic shoe boxes and got my medicine/vitamin and supplements in one.  And I updated my paper list and my address book on my iPhone as well as the "medical ID" section.  Thank goodness our firefighters and police are high tech these days.

In addition to organizing, I've been brushing my teeth with coconut oil and turmeric this week ... my sink is stained yellow and my toothbrush is BRIGHT yellow.  Hopefully that will all come clean.  And I noticed my toilet is slowly leaking in the back on the floor.  I want a "comfort" height with a bidet.  Yes, I did get side tracked looking online ...

Tomorrow was going to be Beach Bowl Day with Lisa but wind and rain have hit our side of the island.  Thankfully I will have more time tomorrow to rearrange a few things and finish my laundry.

Heidi?  Did you ever think I would still be sing songing this 25 years later??

  1. Looks like a very comfortable guest space. I'm amazed at the selection of sleepers and futons that fold up.

    I cleaned my bathroom vanity this week too. Must be something in the air. LOL

    Hope you get your leaky toilet looked at soon. That can quickly rot the flooring and cause major repair issues beyond the toilet.

    1. I'm going to ask John to take a look at it ... maybe a temporary fix til I find a replacement. Otherwise, I'll just replace it and skip the bidet! My last choice ....

  2. I too cleaned my bathroom sink/vanity area. My--aren't we just the little organizer ladies?
    I like to use hydrogen peroxide/baking soda/salt for teeth cleaning one week out of each month. It really helps with the peridontal/gingivitis disease that can creep in, plus it whitens nicely.

    1. Good to know. My teeth look whiter also! But I'm going to skip the turmeric .... it did get removed ... but total mess in the meantime!

      And WHY are we organizing the bathroom!? No one even goes in mine but me!!

    2. I am organizing the bathroom because I moved some of the stuff in there, out of my living area, so that I can move some more stuff into my bedroom. It's just our nesting instincts coming on.

  3. Your guest room looks cozy to me. I bet there are no dust bunnies in there. That's a cute ditty Heidi would sing. I will make every effort to put it out of my mind so me and my dust bunnies can mingle a while longer.

    Hope the rain has left your side of the island. I need the vicarious thrill of sun!
