Small Successes

For more small success stories click on the link above.

1.  I took the time to call a dear friend that I hadn't talked to in months.  We only got to talk for about 15 minutes.  But it's better than nothing!

2.  Did a bit of extra cleaning in the kitchen.  Stuff that didn't take too long but made a big impact.  I'll continue in the kitchen like this for an extra 10 minutes or so a week before moving on to spend extra time in another room.

3.  We removed the 4 X 6 "Christmas tree/train layout" table in our family room.  We usually leave the low table (18" off the ground) up for a few weeks for the kids to play on and under.  The novelty was wearing off.  And...I wanted to the space back :)

Any ideas how to get greasyish dust off the ceiling above my stove?  Ewww.

I have no idea on the greasy ceiling dust. I'll be watching for comments, though! I really need help with that too. My exhaust fan doesn't work at ALL and I have grease EVERYWHERE!

No advice on the greasy ceiling dust. When we moved into our house the cabinet over the stove was greasy. I just kept wiping it with a wash rag that had dish soap on it to cut through the grease. I don't know if that would work on the ceiling. I suspect it would take off the paint and cause another problem.

I spoke with an old friend I hadn't too in awhile last week and I agree it was really nice. Hope both you & I keep up those conversations with these long lost friends.
