Spring Cleaning Still

Furniture moved
Curtains washed
Dust motes in sunlight
Clean windows
Old wood polished
Summer clothes washed
Things sorted & thrown out
A fresh beginning
Best dishes washed
Floor corners scrubbed
A new look
Silver polished
Drawers cleaned
A sense of satisfaction
Rest on a rainy night
Last week I tackled this room, and it took me all day...just one room! But it felt so good that night.
Then I did some spring cleaning in the garden. We have a row of these arborvitae that we put in late last fall. I had to wade into the middle of each, and shake out all the winter dead stuff, clip some brown branches and then rake and compost all the brown. They are definitely perky today with their new 'haircuts'.
