Shopping Day

Carmen Leggio, New Orleans, 1959

This morning, I got up early, did my exercises and then cleaned out my refrigerator. I tossed whatever looked old, then got a bucket of hot soapy water, a rag and a towel. I took out every removable part and cleaned and scrubbed until it shined. Then I neatly put back the food.

In a few minutes, I will go over the ads and make my shopping list. I will go to three stores in my area. John (12) will help me. I have him push the carriage, bag the groceries and help me bring everything into the house.

Once we get back home, I will send him off to play, while I enjoy my kitchen and all the lovely food! I will plan our supper while I work and then do a little laundry.

We will start our schoolwork a little late. I will do a hand-sewing project while the children study. Then I will rest for the afternoon.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Mrs. White

I love a clean, shiny, fresh-smelling refrigerator! Due to the soreness from the accident, I am still unable to do my cleaning. I am having a professional maid service come in tomorrow to clean my house. Some berry juice had spilled in the refrigerator. Cleaning the inside of the fridge is not included in their "base" price - it is extra. I asked how much, and I was told $25.00! "Never mind. I'll try to clean it myself," I said! I sprayed the berry juice with Fabuloso and laid wet paper towels over it. I had to do this a few times to get it all, but it came right up. The rest of the fridge just got a wipe and a swipe since I can't bend, stretch, or reach comfortably. Looks better than it did, but I'm sure not as spiffy as yours!

Joyce, that's amazing how much they charge!

Glad you got it clean though. I hate a dirty fridge!

Hope you are feeling better!
