Making My Home Sing
Every year about this time my thoughts begin to stray towards the garden. I dream about what I will grow, bountiful harvests, beautiful flowers blooming in the flower gardens, the smell of lilac coming from the bushes in my front yard. Oh how I love spring.
Have you ever seen that movie "Field Of Dreams?" Kevin Costner is told by a still, small voice "If you build it, they will come"
I too am hearing this still, small voice. It says "If you clean it, Spring will come."
"If you clean it, Spring will come."
So with that in mind, I'm beginning my spring cleaning tour this week. I'm going one room/area at a time so that by the time spring actually DOES get here I should be in good and CLEAN shape!
This weeks agenda is:
clean off cobwebs
sweep/wash walls on porch
windows in this area and front door
plan pots & seating arrangements for this year
fresh spring wreath for porch (make or buy)
wash prints on walls
re-visit ideas about shelf in this area
wash walls/light switches as needed
dust light fixture
dust and reorganize each shelf
make place for Great Grandmothers buffet that is coming (or plan the space)
So that's how I'm planning on making my home SING this week. What are you doing this week for your own home's harmony? For great ideas, visit Home Sing Monday @ MomsTheWord
