I need the spring cleaning bug to bite me! With a week of rain, I rather want to be out and about, well, Covid style anyway, not inside cleaning. I think I'll strike some deals with myself and work hard this morning and tomorrow, but give myself this afternoon to get some poking around garden shops and Trader Joe's after tagging along with my daughter. I have a a lot of regular tasks to do, but every time I look out windows I literally see the spring cleaning need. Likewise the porch needs a thorough deep clean and chair cushions washed. That will make working from the porch more enjoyable. When I think spring, I think light and bright and gardens, and that had me thinking Paris, so that's the mug I grabbed. Paris, I'll see you again!
Do you have a tried and true spring cleaning routine or do you just add tasks to your regular cleaning? I'm also on the look out for some replacement white porcelain balls for our headboard. I'd just remove the copper tube on right and replace with just the porcelain balls on each side. I have no clue what and how long ago the parts fell off and where they are, but I like my head board, just need it to be symmetrical again. On line I've only found flower versions. I'll look in 2nd hand places but if any one has ideas, let me know. I bought the headboard 30 years ago from the old Spiegel catalogue. It was the exact headboard I had always dreamed of having in a roomy old cottage. Well, I got my head board in a newish 1988 typical suburban house instead, but with a cottage feel. Taking this photo makes me want new bedding and pillows. This quilt and sham set is about four years old, but it's wearing well and is machine wash and dry and perfect year round weight. It just has little springiness. The whole bedroom needs a purge, deep clean, and refresh.
Last year for Mother's Day my daughter bought me this yellow flowering basket. Well look what popped up growing in the much needed care rock hedging! The seeds from the dried out flowers found their way to the dirt. Do I leave them to do their thing or try digging them up for a planter? I'm tickled by it though and am going to buy a bunch of flower seeds for my assortment of pots and see what I can get.
I'm going to call my youngest at 9:30 to make sure she doesn't oversleep and miss her vaccine appointment. I know, she should be self reliant, but I'm not taking chances after seeing the kid sleep soundly until nearly 11:00 on many days of her break. This appointment is too important for me not to make mom noises. Now I better get back to my own list of things to do and practice a little discipline myself. Whatever Saturday brings to you, I hope you enjoy!
