September  Fall Cleaning  To Do List

1- wash walls-- My plan is to  do one room a week,
I did the living room yesterday.

2- Clean the windows [outside and inside]. We are adding
new windows to the house , this next week..When we
moved, that was one job, we had not done.. So, this job
would need to be done anyway..

3-Kitchen-- wash the  inside and outside of cabinets, I
added new shelf liner, when we moved in May. So,
it should just be an easy wipe down?

4-- Bring in  [from storage building] fall/winter clothing
and start taking out the summer things.. This will be
at end of Sept or Early October.  When I do this, I will
go through clothes, and  make my donate pile.

5- Clean my fabric shelf.  

6- Paint the storage building we bought..[waiting on the
cooler weather for that...whew...its hot !!!]

7- Start my fall decorating.  I love fall, and this
is fun...not work at all.

8- Sewing-- make my fall cushion covers for porch

9- Christmas gifts-- start crafting/sewing the things
I will be making.  Start doing some of the shopping
for Christmas gifts.

Some how......... when I write these goals out...it
seems so easy and quick........... But, sure doesn't
feel that way , when I do them..lol

Hope you have a wonderful week.


  1. Oh they look so good! I can't wait to try them out Judy =I think everyone would love them! Looks like you are working hard on Fall Cleaning! you will have it done soon! Have a great week!

    1. Thank you Vickie.. They are so good.
      Hope I can accomplish my list.... we will see. ha

  2. Did you save me a muffin? Ha!! Fall cleaning, of course is somewhat related to weather;-). Tomorrow I intend to remove all the little finger prints and kisses that Miss Muppet added today to the sliders. ( But they are sweet). I've still to shampoo 2 area rugs. The deck will be a great place for that. Pace yourself Judy. Xxoo D

    1. Oops... forgot to save you one.. But, I have peaches in the freezer, come on over and I will make some more. smile. I love those sweet fingerprints and kisses.. Really miss them. Hope you have a great week.

  3. I know what you mean about writing goals being easy. I;ve had a goal of tackling a backlog of paperwork - now I'm doing it. Not nearly as much fun as writing the goal. Maybe I need one of those nice peach muffins to eat to break the monotony!

    1. Oh Sarahliz, i really hate paperwork..It is so hard to keep it up. I agree planning the goals is much more fun than doing it.ha
      Wish you were close by...we would work some and then have a peach muffin.. They are fantastic.

  4. Yum, love the topping idea! I can see that working n a bunch of different flavours, thank you.
    Also, that is some list. All the best tackling it xo

    1. Maryanne, the topping is the best part...
      Working on the to do list.. wow...it is so hot, hard to accomplish anything.. Hopefully, it will cool down soon.

  5. Those muffins look yummy! I will have to try them.

  6. Peaches are on sale this week - I should buy some to make some of your muffins.

    Fall cleaning - too hot to think about it, right now! 100+F today!

    1. Oh bless your heart..It is TOO hot.. Hope your temps come down soon.
      Try the muffins , they are fantastic..
