We've been so busy with work and life that the house projects have gotten back burnered. We still want to get the house painted and the kitchen redone but just don't have the extra energy to coordinate that right now.
I did do some fall cleaning though, washing down the wood floors and doing the windows and the like. I guess that counts for something.
By the way, I don't Swiffer. Don't like the way that product leaves a residue on the floors (had a housecleaner a few years ago who insisted on using it) and who knows what chemicals are in it. I'm a dust mopper, a vacuumer and a mopper. I used damp rags a lot. No I don't only use vinegar to clean with, but I do try to be conservative in my use of cleaning products.
The garden is looking a little more tired now, some branches on the red maples have started to turn bright red, the black walnut has started shedding its leaves, the tomato vines hang with tiny cherry tomatoes waiting to be picked.
