It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Spring Cleaning..., Yuk!

Having the carpet cleaned this morning so I may not be back until tomorrow. What a project this is. All the furniture has to be moved and you know how it is when you move something that has been in one place for a while: Dust bunnies and dead bugs prevail.

Yep, that is why I'm dreading having new flooring put down....

How well I know. That is why I had all my wall to wall carpet removed and now have wood flooring which my sweet husband installed. Much easier to keep clean. Have a good day. Madeline

That's a yucky phrase... as bad as fall cleaning... I'm getting ready to paint and rearrange the my bedroom and I'm dreading what I will find when I move the bed out from the wall it's on now. I don't have my bed on a frame because then it's too tall for Chloe to jump up on to in her olden age so I know that where my bed is will be the cleanest place in the bedroom. It's just the rest of it that makes me groan. I've got the shop vac ready to go... any minute now... I'm moving, you just can't see it yet....
