I went on a cleaning binge this weekend. My home is cleaner than it has been since we moved in three months ago. Every floor, tub, toilet and sink was spotless. Every single item of laundry washed, folded and put in its place. The sheets on every bed were fresh. And then my children came home from visiting their father. Someone had red dirt in the crevices of their tennis shoes. A visit had been made to the park - the park with sand, where roads and canyons were built. Bags were filled with dirty clothes and the children expected me to cook. So the house didn't stay clean for long. Ah well. Such is the cyclical nature of housework. The only thing that has me truly annoyed is the red dirt I'm still finding in random locations.
I was able to meet up with a group of friends for lunch and fun on Saturday. The weather was warm(er) and I was able to exercise outside both days - it's always more fun and less boring than doing a video inside. My children and I had time to relax, read and play games. We enjoyed church and being with Mr. Wonderful. It was a great weekend in so many ways. I ended with Downton Abbey - and it did not disappoint.
I'm thinking ahead to springtime, now, and feeling ready to purge a bit more (why is there always more to get rid of?) and to get fit. The winter insulation is cozy but not fun to carry around. I have one more year of my thirties, so I want to use that motivation to stay healthy! I am starting to think of spring break plans, potted garden ideas and looking forward. Good days are ahead!
Do you look forward to spring? What do you like the most? Does your schedule change? Next weekend is supposed to be freezing cold again.
