Okay, yes Spring is here folks…at least it is here in Texas and unfortunately I know that it won’t be around long because our Spring will soon turn into Summer with temperatures in the high 90’s and low 100’s!
I thought I would try something different in this post today because I’m not feeling the love so this is an experiment and whether you are a follower or not and/or maybe you just stumbled upon this blog of mine by accident or for the first time, this conversation will remain open forever so it doesn’t matter if it is 2 weeks from now, 2 months from now or the dead of winter when you find me. I hope that you will join me and leave a comment at the bottom of this post. And while we converse I will share some Texas Spring Beauty with y’all.
The topics are Spring Cleaning, Forgetfulness and List or no List??? For me Spring Cleaning as I am sure for most of us can be overwhelming. So I would like to here your take on this subject. Most all the time I have this list in my head of what needs to be done around here. As I stroll from room to room in my home I see all the things I would like to do and make a mental note of it, for instance I walk into my kitchen and looking up I see a few cobwebs in the corners and on those tacky fake plants, LOL I see what appears to be dead bugs that have collected in the light fixtures, and what looks like fur growing on the top of my ceiling fan blades. Then as I look lower I notice smudges on the glass cabinet doors and windows. And greasy fur growing on the lip of the vent hood. EOOH YUK! Looking even lower I notice tiny food splatters on my lower cabinets, and I remember it’s time to re-seal those granite countertops again! What’s worse is if I open the drawers and cabinets I can see and feel tiny dust particles and can’t find anything in my unorganized pantry.
Most people who walk through my home may not notice these disgusting little things that annoy me. But I do and they will annoy me until I do something about them. I know I am not the only one who cannot afford a maid to come in and take care of all these things that annoy me. This is only one room in my home, what about the Bathroom and the Living Room and the Bedroom etc.
Oh and because it is so beautiful outside, the birds are singing, the trees are sporting thier new duds for the season and rustling in the wind and the warm air and sun feel magnificent! Oh I just want to be OUTSIDE! To get those annoying task done, sometimes I will sit and write myself a list of all the things I need to do for each room and slowly cross them off the list while I tend to them but sometimes I figure I could get them done quicker if I just DO IT! I think I need the list cuz sometimes I will forget, you know it comes with age, we get forgetful and I’m afraid I’ll miss something, I also think without the list I’ll get the most important things done and if I forget something well I guess it must not be important and let it go and figure I will eventually get around to it! Sometimes when I clean I get bored if I stay in one room until it is done and because we, as women are naturally multi-taskers, though some folks may call it scatterbrained, I’ll do this, I’ll clean the ceiling fan and lights in the Kitchen then I’ll wander into the Living Room and I’ll vacuum the rug, then I’ll mozy over to the Bedroom and I’ll fetch a load of laundry and I’ll step outside and sweep the porch etc..and before you know it not one room gets completed. So here’s my questions for you, Do you write List or do you just DO IT and trust your mental list? Are you forgetful and/or scatterbrained? Or do you stay focused and complete one room at a time? Do you have a maid? How do you attack the Spring Cleaning around your home? Or maybe , you are one of those special ladies how don’t have Spring Cleaning chores cuz you know how to stay on top of everything throughout the year. I’m not hatein’ just sayin’…To be honest, I’ve just touched on my Spring Cleaning because I have been busy getting my Spring Garden going instead. I do Love being Outside!!! Working on my Farmers tan. 🙂 Gotta Get TO IT!
Okay, show some Love
