Keeping House


It is that time of year for a little deep cleaning.
I like to do this at least twice a year.
Once before the Fall season begins
and again in the first of March before Easter.
I keep a clean house, but there is always
those things that could use extra attention
every now and then.
Window screens and porches for instance.
Behind washer and dryers
and under appliances for another.
There is also the going through clothes,
packing some away and giving some away.
Don't forget those toys.
I actually look forward to digging in.
This usually takes two weeks.
Once done, there will be no rush for when
company comes,
except decisions about what to cook for meals.
All smiles.

I am trying to do the same. After a major purging of "stuff" I still have more "stuff" to get rid of. Where does it all come from?

Mrs Adept said...

I dunno, but stuff just comes to us too. :)

I'm about to do the same thing! Time to clean out closets...clothes and toys! I'm really looking forward to it too. Not to destroying my house for a few days...but ready for how I'll feel once it's done!
