A Good Man

What woman wouldn't love a man that would agree to wash the windows? I should be out looking for a new camera, but we are getting ready for guests. Neighbors from Colorado are passing through, and will stop over for three nights. We have decided to get all of our Colorado friends together, that also live in Texas for the winter, for a dinner.

There will be seven couples in all. Yep, time to spit shine the house.  Hmmm, I guess people from other countries may not understand that term. Spit shine means to get everything expert shape, ready for inspection. Soldiers use to actually spit on their shoes, when polishing them for uniform inspection, to get a glossier shine.


  1. I hope hubby is not using spit to clean the windows :) Wasn't it easier to put the blinds up when washing the window? Or is this the men's way of cleaning.... Have a nice dinner!

  2. Haha! We say spit polish, same thing :)
    PS reminded me my windows could do with a clean :)

  3. My windows always seem to be dirty. Can't convince too many males around here to give me a hand, tho.

  4. those are tough to clean with the slats and all! i know you'll enjoy your col/tex bunch!

    1. Those slats are actually shutters on the inside of the window....inside the house. He had already cleaned the inside and closed them.

  5. Looks like you have an awesome husband! The term spit shine did remind me of someone shining shoes...interesting phrase! We do some cleaning like that too whenever we have anyone scheduled to come over.

  6. Dearest Janey,
    Well, you are ways ahead of me with your 'spit-shine' cleaning of the entire house! Enjoy the time together and the good thing after attacking the house like that, you can relax for a while...
    Sending you hugs,

  7. This is a task I will be doing come spring! We have not washed our windows since we moved to Colorado last year! Enjoy your company!

  8. Well done to your husband - we say spit and polish so not far removed from your quote.
