While I am not one to push any season....[except Autumn], I am going with the traditional Spring Cleaning, at least in the six rooms we "live in" of this 9 room house.
Oh, I remember with devotion the Spring and Fall cleaning sessions. I now know why Mom and Gramma were so insistent. Spring is for eliminating the dust and soot from Gramma's coal furnace and Mom's fireplace. We used to make this lovely ritual a two-household affair. All 3 of us tackled it with the proper tools, and we could knock both places out in a week or 10 days.
I looked forward to the food [shocker]. Gramma always had a pot of her vegetable soup and some light rolls. Mom's go-to for Spring cleaning was always potato soup and brownies. The brownies were for my dad who would come home from work and... go to work on the heavy chores here.
Fall cleaning got rid of the dust fogged in through opened windows and breezy hot weather.
While current furnaces and air conditioners help this some, I see such a difference in a room after a few hours of "tlc." I have a few goals for this year that have not happened in a while:
Wash the chandelier/prisms
Have all windows washed inside and out. I can do the inside, but that outside is getting pretty "loud."
and Decorations for holidays
It feels funny to say Spring Cleaning when it isn't Spring and, in fact, it's 2 degrees! So tomorrow if it's cold, I think I'm going to crochet, cross-stitch, bake lemon bars, have some more chili, and start watching the series Victoria.
I lied in my title. However, I can check off this week's list I did muster... living room, floor to ceiling----- minus lighting and windows----, the kitchen cabinets and hutches... never-ending laundry .....and my specialty, uh... Chili taster... lol
Have a good week.
