Fall Cleaning

I know most people spring clean, and I guess I do a little. But for some reason I really feel like I need to fall clean. After a summer of being much more relaxed about our chores. Of running in and out from the creek. Of living on dusty dirt roads. I just feel like I need to totally clean things out before we're sort of closed in for winter. Closed in is a bit of an exaggeration, but with Colorado winters you catch my drift (pun intended).

THIS is the weekend. The pantry needs cleaned out, the refrigerator needs cleaned out. And everywhere else just needs a good thorough cleaning. It's time to sort through our overstuffed closets and weed out the too small, worn out, not worn stuff. Time to go through the overstuffed toy room and give away what's no longer loved and throw away what is broken or general junk.

Look out hubby and kids, it's time to get our clean on. Oh yes, this is going to be a family project this weekend. The kids' rooms are absolutely high on the list. They don't get dusted near as often as they should...and we're having a bit of a lego...issue. And yes, I may have bribed hubby: a full day of cleaning for a full day of me helping get firewood. That's another must be done before the snow flies. It all works out that way I suppose.

So if you need me...I'll be cleaning....
