SPRING AND SPRING CLEANING (MAYBE)
What a nice Spring we are having! It has come early in Maine . Yes , we have had a few cold days lately but overall we really have nothing to complain about. The grass has been mowed once for me but probably several times for others. I love it when the trees have their leaves. Everything is coming to life after a long winter. Its good for the soul. Our grandkids are in baseball, softball and track. That in itself keeps us quite busy. We sometimes try to juggle two events in one afternoon. That can be interesting. I have been busy also making dolls, crafting and re-organizing my home. That is an enless job. Who Sping cleans like they used to years ago? I try to maintain a clean home but I can remember when my mother would take everything out of the cupboards , drawers, wash the windows, re-paint woodwork, paper walls if need and also do ceilings. She even would go through the full size attic in our old home and clean and re-organize. Take the mattress off and turn them over. I don`t think anybody does that one anymore or maybe I`m wrong. Let me know if I am. All this was done consistently EVERY spring. Oh, and she had a full time job as manager at the school food program. What can I say!
Its hard to believe that it is already the middle of February. Time has a way of disappearing like a blink of the eye! I guess the older you get the faster it goes. Since we are still in winter lets have some more snow! Our snow around Maine is going very fast. Since we do snowmobile some and have a camp further north in Maine where usually snowmobiling is great we are all praying for those white flakes. Vacation week is the time we go with our grandkids and their parents. We have such a great time. In the meantime I am making new things for my website lizziesraggs and thinking Spring creations. Hard to get in that mood but I`m trying. Hope to hear from you and share what your all doing to get through this season.
