HGP Week 13, Day 1: Overview and Sneak Peek 
22nd-Nov-2009 10:06 am
Christmas
Welcome to Week 13 of the HGP. This is Dining Room week.

This is Thanksgiving week for some of us, so some of these tasks are going to focus on celebrating that holiday. If Thanksgiving isn't taking up a lot of your time this week, you might have time to devote to catching up on previous areas of the house, doing some extra baking, or putting more work into homemade gifts or cards or something.

In the holiday prep for this week, the website gives a few suggestions for things to read and do that I'm not going to copy here. Follow the links above to check those out if you're interested.

The tasks for Deep Cleaning the Dining Room include:


  • Sweep ceilings for cobwebs and clean light fixtures

  • Remove everything from walls and windows

  • Launder window treatments

  • Clean windows, frames and sills, doors and doorframes, sweep walls and wipe any smudges
