Spring cleaning

I am not sure about where you live in the world but here in Georgia it feels to me like the winter season does not want to leave. Today the high will only reach 60 degrees. Tomorrow we should see sunny and 70. I love the warm and hot summers. The sun feels like it brings with its heat a rejuvenation to everything and an energy with it. The winter season brings a harsh cold breeze and usually dark blue and gray skies. The winter just for me feels like an energy drain. But, especially here in the south the winter season doesn’t last long. We are now well into spring and should be seeing blooming flowers longer days more bright and sunny skies.


Most people are pulling back the shades in all the rooms in their house and letting the sun spill in. Screen doors are getting a work out and kids are discovering new bugs and meeting new buds at the neighborhood playgrounds.

When the shades are pulled back and front door opened many will find hidden by the darker months some dust bunnies and cluttered shelves. Start spring cleaning. Some have their own spring cleaning rituals which involve a certain uniform of oversized clothes that can have cleaner spill and ruin them and maybe a bandana to keep their hair up and out of their eyes.  Some start with the outside sweeping off the patio and cleaning leaves from the gutters. Others are opposite, inside than outside. Others wing it with no rhyme or uniform to their spring cleaning, but everyone seems to do some type of spring cleaning.

Spring cleaning is great it helps get our homes in order and makes life that much less stressful and spring cleaning is not just for our homes. The spring time is as good a time as any to take a look at our homes, inside and outside,  work finances and family. You would be surprised how many of the little things can pile up. How many memberships to clubs you may want to cancel, how many unread e-mails have important information in them. 

When I was a kid I hated spring cleaning but now as an adult I almost look forward to the spring cleaning. But not as much as I look forward to Summer.
