Hello, My Name is Lisa and I Love To Clean

Hello there! I know it's weird, but I really do love to clean the house. I just feel more comfortable when everything is in its place and the whole house is nice and tidy. 

Sometimes I take pics right after I clean the house. Do y'all do that too? It's like I want to document it before it gets messed up again. Ha!

See that bowl up there next to my mixer? It's filled with homegrown tomatoes straight from my Mama's garden. 

I gussied them up a bit with olive oil, salt, pepper, and parm for a quick snack one day. 

After I ran errands and cleaned, I sat down to a bowl of strawberries, a cup of coffee, and a Southern Living magazine. A perfect combo. :) 

Look at Miss Shiny Coat Holly up there on top of the couch. 

After I picked some flowers from my garden, I came inside and made chocolate pixies. Yum!

I was trying to get Holly enjoying her food station (with her  Custom Pet Frame lovingly made my moi) but every time I tried to snap a pic, she walked away. Guess she was camera shy that day. 

So what about you? Do you enjoy cleaning too, or am I just a total nut? Lol!

Two more quick things...if you're planning any painting projects for the summer, Sherwin Williams has 40% off their paints/stains from June 10th - June 13th. 

And if you're thinking of buying any of the Sears Capris I talked about HERE, there's a $10 off $40 clothing purchase coupon in the Sunday paper this week. The capris are on sale right now for $28.99 and the coupon is good on regular AND sale priced clothing and it's good in store and online. You can email me if you need the coupon code from the paper. :) 

Happy shopping!



  1. I used to love cleaning, now not so much. However, it does feel good once it is done. The tomatoes look so yummy. Homegrown are best.

  2. Yes, I do have to have my home clean every day! I think I would go crazy if I had to live in a messy home. Mondays are my worst day. I just finished mopping and sweeping the whole house, dusting all the furniture, vacuumed all the carpets, cleaned three bathrooms, got two loads of laundry done and I got dinner cooking on the stove. I am very, very tired, Lisa. :) Enjoy your week! Maria

  3. You're not a nut. I love a clean house and the process really doesn't bother me at all. Now cooking...even baking...that's a totally different story! ;) Everything looks great!!

  4. Lisa, I like my house to be I do clean it. I am not a fan of vacuuming or dusting. :):) Your home looks very nice indeed. It is good to relax with a cup of coffee , treat and magazine. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. Yes I love to clean too! When I used to teach I'd start cleaning the room as soon as the kids walked out. My brain works better when things are clean and orderly. Amen. :)

  6. Hi Lisa,
    Yep I am from the same mold as you and enjoy cleaning. I like everything in it's place and bright and shinny too. Yum on those fab tomatoes from your mom's garden. Happy New Week.

  7. I'm right there with you! Love to clean, read about ways to clean, and try new cleaning products. Floors are my pet peeve ... If they're not clean I feel as if our entire house is messy. Did you have a link to a 12 step program for us? :)

    1. ha,ha Carolyn.. You said it perfectly. I love reading about cleaning, and trying new cleaners.. and am very happy when my house is clean..

  8. I actually like to clean too (unless I'm pressed for time). I find it therapeutic to take something and turn it into something nicer. I love shiny, fresh smelling, clean and sanitary spaces! But, I wouldn't turn down a maid service if it was offered! ha!

  9. Lisa, I love to clean too.. And I am very sad, when I get busy and cant clean... I mainly keep my house organized cleaning is not that hard.. Upkeeping is the best way to me. I love to smell a clean house.. and I love to welcome visitors in and not having to worry that the house is in a mess.. Not sure how people live like that.ha

  10. We love a clean home but I can't honestly say that I love cleaning! If you could give me some of your love for cleaning and I'd give you some of my love for cooking we'd good to go! lol! Your home is so beautiful Lisa! I can just imagine how peaceful it is sitting there with that magazine and snack! xo

  11. I'm right there with you on the weird people who like to clean club lol! Your house always looks so clean and organized...I love it! by the way, Lily was reading next to me while I read through your blog and she saw your house pictures and said "it is so pretty!" I agree!
