Unhappy Back to Fall Cleaning

I ended up taking a couple of weeks' hiatus as life got in the way. Thankfully this year, I'd started with the room I dread the most - the kitchen. It's completely done although I think I forgot to do the exhaust fan & the fridge has stickies in it again. When doesn't the fridge get stickies? I'll get those done today at some point.

But today, I'm focusing on the hall. We have an entrance hall, (small), that takes a turn left towards the bedrooms & bathroom. It's not bad - the walls, trim, some wall art to do & the bookshelf - an outstanding dust & cat hair collector... Other than a few acres of wall, this shouldn't be a big deal. The linen closet just needs a tiny bit of tidying & my big closet, (winter coats & stuff), is going to wait until tomorrow, I think. I know I have stuff in there to purge & I need to look at fall/winter coats/jackets & make sure none need repair or cleaning.

I have cabinets that I foolishly allowed to get greasy yucky... didnt realize they were gross till the house got nice and humid and then I could feel it ewww... so they are stained wood not painted any tips for stripping it off....

I almost hit them with Easy Off in my annoyance but thought better of it LOL

Yup, its that time of year again. Cleaning up after the long hot summer.

The inside of my fridge needs a defrost and cleanup, but I have to eat everything in it, so that will wait till october. The rest, will be worked on little by little.

Loads to go to the fairgrounds for their rummage.
