This morning it was rainy and cold, so we decided to stay in and do some much needed organizing in our flat. We have traveled so much lately that we have not taken the time to do any true deep cleaning for a while. The place is easy to keep picked up, but today we did those other chores - sorting out the closets and scrubbing floors and walls.

We took every single can, box and package of food out of the shelves, wiped everything down, then took inventory of what we had so we could plan meals based on what we have on hand.
We know all this effort won't last. Within a few days of making meals and living life, all the lovely order in our pantry will get muddled and laundry will pile up again.
