|Do you see the little grey droplets? Those are snow. The blue droplets beginning on Thursday in balmy 7C (44F) degree weather are rain. Please join me in praying for blue.|
Saturday was a productive day. I spring cleaned my bedroom, which for me means putting the bed and wall sconces on the opposite wall (using the previous years holes which were expertly covered by artwork), dusting my ceiling fan (make no wonder I've been coughing), pulling out the summer clothing bins from under the bed and re-discovering the new-to-me thrifted items that I bought over the past 6-8 months, and having a good root through and toss out of old make-up and nail polish. I also "decorated" my lamps with recent jewellery purchases: each of those beauties was no more than $6 on the marked-down mark-down rack.
I then moved on to the upstairs bathroom. All the shelves, high and low, were tackled. Tops of curtains rods and window frames, medicine cabinet, vanity. Everything thing got a good wash down and sort through which left me with these, my spa shelves - music, candles and bath oils. Yes, I know wine is missing from the shelf but that was consumed later as I don't imbibe while I clean. Reward, reward, ladies!
The only collateral damage incurred during yesterday's cleaning frenzy was when the tower of my computer fell over on my foot. Ouch! But an ice pack and an evening on the couch with said glass of wine and Matt Damon (The Bourne Identity) helped the healing process.
I've decided that if the view outside my window doesn't reflect the calendar, then I must make my attitude reflect it. Therefore, spring is in my heart!
Sunday the spring/summer throw cushions will appear on the couch and there will be flowers from the local grocer.
