Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt - "Clean"

Welcome to the Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt where this week we had to find a picture of something clean. Now this one was tough because, to be perfectly honest, there isn't a whole lot around my house that seems to be clean right now! And that's pretty sad because I used to pride myself on a neat and orderly house.

I'm not sure when that all changed but it has and the amazing thing is, I don't feel any great desire to attack the kitchen floor with a mop or vacuum all the cat hair off of the stairs or even pick up the clutter from the dining room table. After all - who needs a dining room table?? If I clean off the dining room table that means I need to cook meals that we will eat while sitting at the dining room table. And who has time to do that when there is blogging to be done?

So after a somewhat frantic search around the house I finally found the below:

dishwasherIf nothing else ever gets cleaned around here these days, the dishes and the clothes usually get done! And thank goodness for that or there would be a just big, blank, clean space where today's Hunt was supposed to be!

Happy Hunting and a ...

Happy Easter

  1. If it wasn't for my dishwasher my dishes probably wouldn't be clean either ha ha. susie homemaker I am NOT. Don't get me wrong, I love a clean house, I am just to busy and lazy to do it as often as I should for it to be really clean...That is why I chose a different thing for my post (smile). Thanks for stopping in.

  2. Clean dishes, totally a necessity. Do you use liquid or powder? Just had to ask.

  3. I agree at 100 % to your cleaning philosophy ! The only thing I miss between the clean dishes is your cat ! Arthur always sits in the dishwasher when the door is open !

  4. PS Arthur is my cat not my husband !

  5. dishwashers are great. i don't have one at my apartment.. but my office does.. and the lady who cleans the office does all those dishes... so i end up eating at work a lot :-)

  6. Oh thank goodness for your dishwasher you have something for us this week. :) Happy weekend!

  7. Nuttin better then clean dishes!

  8. Yup, dishes and laundry are about the only thing that consistently gets cleaned at my house as well! And I usually supervise both!
    Thanks for the visit!
    Tara, Princess Meezer

  9. oh my it's liking looking in the mirror. Somehow the dishes and the laundry are all that get done around here also. Crazy days.

  10. Oh yea, clean dishes. Great picture. Thanks for stopping by My Photo Blog.

  11. ha ha ha, great post! and who ever eats at the table. we have lived here almost six years and we have eaten two meals at the table, so now you know how many times i had company for dinner! ha ha.... oh those chairs in front of the tv...

    smiles, bee

  12. Clean plates/dishes! Definitely a great pic for this week's theme, happy easter!

    Good thing you found something clean for the hunt LOL. It was quite a challenge for me too, so i settled for my daughter's clean smile!
    Happy Easter!

    I think I dislike unloading the dishwasher more than loading it! Thanks for stopping by.

  15. I can hear my dishwasher running in the kitchen as I type this. Clean dishes - a wonderful thing.

    Good choice for The Hunt!

  16. nice! great idea for clean...i hate dirty dishes...they keep on coming...tsk tsk tsk!

  17. I still do them the old fashioned way.

  18. Linda, you and I have so much in common... sigh. Great clean post... as much as you and I are alike our clean posts are totally different. Come check mine out :o)

  19. My Mommie says clean dishes in the dishwasher are a mixed blessing. Because now you have another chore: emptying the dishwasher!

  20. Yep, dishes and laundry need to be cleaned regularly, as does my litterbox!

    Happy Easter to you too. :)

  21. Not joining in this one because as I'm not in charge of the cleaning at the moment (bad leg)I can't vouch for anthing being clean. Don't tell MWM or he'll down tools!

  22. Yes...the clean dishes...but you know the thing for the dishwasher..then you have to put all those clean dishes away....

    happy photo is up

  23. Good choice, Linda!

    Enjoy Easter!

  24. I'm with you. I can always count on clean dishes. Great photo and nice take on the theme. Happy Easter!

  25. What's a dishwasher? Oh wait...I know - it's ME! Yep, we do our dishes the old-fashioned way, and to celebrate finally getting them done, "Mrs. Bulldog" & I go out to eat! (usually on our way home from the laundromat) ;-)

    BTW: Happy Easter to one of my favorite folks upstairs in the "Bubble"!

  26. I wish we had a dishwasher too. It must really be a great convenience.

    Have a lovely Easter. Take care!

    Great choice for clean. Nothing like clean dishes...being done
    Happy Easter to you.

    I go through times like that, too, where the dishes and clothes are about the only thing clean. :) I am so thankful for dishwashers!

  29. Love all of the dishes clean but hate emptying the dishwasher. I usually just try to use as many out of the washer before actually having to empty it. Thus, empty dishwasher- very full sink>
    Happy hunting

  30. Hmm- mine weren't clean :-( nice shot!

  31. Anonymous10:15 AM EDT

    Hey, you are not alone, and I personally feel that my clutter means I'm "normal"....LOL! Thanks for sharing your photo and thanks for stopping by mine! Happy Easter!

    I'm with you...not much has been clean around my home for about a week ;)....I noticed in your profile you like Stephanie Plum...I just started reading the the emergency always it is hard to put a book by her down without reading it through to the end.

  33. I, too, had a tough time with 'clean' - but I think your post was great!
    Happy Easter!

  34. yeah, clean dishes, sounds about right...

  35. Anonymous10:55 AM EDT

    LOL! Yes ma'am, they're clean! Great shot!

  36. i had a hard time with this theme..i like your blog though, great job

  37. At least you managed it - I couldn't find anything clean round my house!

    I see you like Stephanie Plum novels - me too. They're the best!

    Thanks for dropping by.

  38. Hi! I just discovered your blog (thanks to The Boomer Chronicles) and I"m sure glad I did. Oh, dishwasher isn't working...can I borrow yours?

  39. Good pictures! Of course, the bad thing about clean dishes is that now you have to put them away :o)

  40. Oh man.... sometimes I feel like just buying paper plates so I don't have to do the dishes! Thank goodness for dishwashers!

  41. You're right, clean wasn't an easy one! Good job.

  42. You and I think alike ... there are more important things in life.

    Thanx for stopping by mine :)

  43. Great picture! You're right, the theme wasn't easy.

  44. I had trouble figuring out what photo to use, too, but I finally came up with something. Check it out and see if you like it!

  45. lol - I'm laughing... But just ponder if you didn't even have the dishwasher, what would life be like. ;-)

  46. Anonymous3:26 PM EDT

    I don't think we ever run out of clothes and dishes to clean! Fun shot!

  47. At least the dishes are clean; that's the most important thing. If the house would stay clean for a couple of weeks without much effort on our part... now that would be a welcome miracle!

  48. I need a 911 operator for help, I just posted on yesterday's comments.

  49. Fun photo! I agree. I hate sweeping and cleaning in general...

    Happy Easter!

  50. My house is so not clean right now :-) Very good take on clean!
    I played too :-)

  51. Linda, that is halarious about having to clean your dining room table and then eating at it! Thanks for visiting my photo today

  52. All my dishwasher is good for is to drain the dishes I've washed by hand.
    It's been broken for a couple of months :(
    Good photo for Clean!!

  53. Anonymous8:16 PM EDT

    Your story made a big smile on my face! " I need to cook meals" hahaha I hate to cook so this made me laugh out loud. :)

    Your photo is clean!

    Greetz from Holland and Happy Easter!

  54. I like your attitude!! Have a good week!

  55. Horray for dishwashers! Reminds me...I need to go unload mine and put the rest of the Easter Dinner dishes in there.

    Happy Easter, Linda! :)

    Happy Easter Linda!

    Your mini-review over at The Pissatkers is hilarious! Glad you got on the mybloglog for this week. I wasn't trying to get on it but I'm am on it again (so is Bob!). LOL!

    I won the gummi's last week, Bib won them this week. You go for it and get those gummi's next week! (hee hee!)

    Can you tell I've had much too much chocolate.


  57. Our dishwasher had been acting up. I took a picture of it leaking soapy water a couple of days ago. We may have to get a new one because I will NOT live without one:)

  58. Anonymous9:27 AM EDT

    Great idea for the theme! I love this. Happy Easter

  59. Anonymous2:51 AM EDT
