When I was young I dreaded “spring cleaning”. It seemed new chores were created so we could spring clean; such as, emptying out the kitchen cabinets and pantry and washing down the shelves or taking every single item out of the garage and sweeping it thoroughly. We had plenty of chores to begin with and this spring event just tacked on more! As you ventured out into the neighborhood, it seemed everyone was spring cleaning … busy sweeping and dusting making everything sparkle. Garbage day was huge with stacks of old junk thrown to the curb for pickup.
Spring Cleaning was an Event!
… and everyone had to participate or they weren’t Clean …
Nowadays …. I enjoy Spring Cleaning. Not the actual physical labor of hauling unwanted goods out or scrubbing walls and ceilings for that shine, but the feeling of satisfaction. Removing the unnecessary clutter that just doesn’t belong anymore. I enjoy the deep sigh of relief after a good week of spring cleaning and I feel good that everyone in the neighborhood can nod that “nod of cleanliness” my way as I pass by their home.
Happy Spring … (Cleaning)!
