What is it about that first break from cold weather….sun shining down melting the ice and snow, increased choir of chirping birds at daybreak, kids venturing out again on bikes and the promise of warmer weather to come, that sends us all into ecstatic feelings of passion and energy every year?
We wait the entire winter and are so overjoyed when the first hints of Spring show themselves!!
With Spring approaching, there are all kinds of other activities that come to mind that we all know we need to prepare for, in order to enjoy the approaching outdoor play-days.
One of these events is what is commonly referred to as “Spring Cleaning”, two words that I don’t think should ever be paired together😊
Nevertheless, it is always a tremendous feeling of accomplishment to make and check off those “lists” of chores that we need to get over with, in order to eventually relax and take advantage of what lies ahead. What a relief as we knock off the tasks, knowing we are now all ready for more pleasurable events.
Everyone of us have our own routines….well, those of us that actually do Spring Cleaning ha ha…
