Spring Cleaning in the Summertime


How was your weekend?

Mine was pretty good. I didn't work on my book, but I got some reading in which was good. The only other thing of note is the ongoing cleaning that me and my other half have been doing around the house. It's spring cleaning in the summertime. Lol.

I do my best to stay on top of day-to-day ongoing cleaning, but we decided a few weekends ago to do a bit of deep cleaning. We've been purging things that we no longer need and I must say it's felt good. We're doing things in sections so it hasn't been overwhelming and it hasn't taken up the whole weekend...just a couple of hours on Saturdays. There's definitely something to be said for the energy in a space changing once you rearrange things or get rid of clutter. I never thought I'd say this about cleaning, but it's been quite fun. Who knew? ;-) Hey...we know how to have a good time. Lol!

I hope that your weekend was great and that you have a great Monday!

P.S. This picture above is hilarious to me...her mouth is open like she's either sighing from exhaustion or cussing somebody out who isn't coming to help her carry all of that stuff. Lol!

Until next time...

I've been doing my spring cleaning this summer as well. I feel so much "lighter" having thinned out my closets and cupboards and donated many items. I'll be cleaning some things that don't get cleaned very often, like the screens in the vent (extractor) hood over the stove.

Jean,
Yes, I'm finding that this spring cleaning in summer just might be my thing. It feels like good preparation for going into the fall. The energy in the house is so much more open. I love it! It's like you said, it's lighter :)
