Spring cleaning time? I'm so glad I live in the Midwest when I hear those word!! Although we had a little taste of spring, and the crocus and daffodils are starting to peek out of the ground, It will be in the low 40s for the second half of this week, so I don't have to spring clean yet!! Isn't there some rule where you have to have at least a week of over 50 before we have to roll up our sleeves and begin the ritual that we all dread, but we are so glad we did when it's over? There is nothing like opening up all the windows and having a nice spring breeze (or in our case, gale force winds and the occasional tornado) blowing through the house! Something about those first few sunny, cloud-free days of spring that force a smile on your face and a spring in your step! I don't mind spring cleaning all that much because it's so nice to air out winter from the house, pull back the curtains and brighten up the windows so that the sun we haven't seen in months can shine through!! I absolutely love working out in the yard - I am always sore and dirty and blissfully exhausted! Won't be long before I can get out there and clean out the remaining dead stuff from last year to make room for this year's growth! Time to hose down everything on the screened-in porch so we can sit out there with a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of children playing everywhere - including ours!! Spring is indeed a wonderful thing and my favorite time of the year (although I do prefer the summer temperatures and lack of school), but I don't mind waiting another month to break out the heavy duty cleaning supplies!! All in good time!
