Yes, those are real deer antlers you see on my chandellier! For my last day in Zone 1, I did a thorough dusting of the ceiling, baseboards, and light fixtures in the entry and dining room. I usually just use a soft-bristled broom to get up into the ceiling corners. I used my ostrich feather duster to get all the dust bunnies that had found a home above my dining table on the antlers–yuck!! I draped an old sheet over the dining table to keep the table from getting showered upon with dust. All I had to do then was shake the sheet out and throw it in the wash. Next month I think I will do this chore on the first day I am in the dining room zone instead of doing it at the end of the week. Who wants all of that dust floating down when the table and chairs have already been polished and the floor has already been mopped??? I learned something new today!
I hope you have enjoyed working your way through the front porch, entry, and dining room this week. I’ll begin tackling the kitchen on Monday!
