Signs of Spring in South Dakota
Can it really be the last day of January??
It always feels so good
to have January behind us!!
February can be a real bummer
sometimes too, but at least it's short
and it has Valentine's day in the middle of it!
It's no doubt my Spring fever has me overcome,
and it doesn't help when I see blogs with pictures
of blossoming trees in Florida and baby chicks too!!
There is no clear signs of spring here yet....
Unfortunately just more snow!
This is South Dakota,
and usually my first sign of spring
I grew up in a house that had to be cleaned every Saturday!
"Saturday Cleaning"- I can still hear my Mother's voice.
while other kids were watching Saturday
morning cartoons, I was dusting!!
It was such a drag.
To this day, if I see a bottle of Pledge
on Saturday I start shaking!
So as soon as I had my own house,
I "pledged" to never do cleaning on Saturday!!
UH UHHH - NO WAY
Although, my mother may have
traumatized her daughters with
the "Saturday Cleaning" thing.
We all still do the traditional
(one sister does her's in the Fall, she
always was the stubborn one)
One thing we all agree on...
there's nothing better than open windows,
fresh sheets, and a Spring clean house!
Today, I've decided to put out
an A.P.B. for this lady....
At the end of the month Hazel and I
will be busy as bees when we get
back to the farm....
If I were there right now, I could be
cleaning out cupboards and closets
and having a good time just doing
some preliminary work before
the real cleaning begins!
When it's all said and done
the rewards are
Daisy fresh sheets! mmmmm!
You know the old saying...
Cleanliness is next to Godliness!!
I'm not sure the true origin of that phrase,
but I'm pretty sure it was the same
person that invented spring cleaning!
49 days until Spring!
Happy Mosaic Monday,
Now I'm hopping over to Mary's Little Red House
to see what other's have created today!
