Spring cleaning is an idea that I entertain but often fall short in implementing.
After months of the cold wind, dust and snow from the winter season, my house can use a sprucing up. Of course, it would be more presentable like I after a fresh haircut. Trouble is I spend more time thinking about the project than doing it.
No. It is not for lack of ideas. That I get plenty. The challenge is these projects are either too big or too small. Too big because I don’t have the right equipment to do the job. Like a power washer for the house exterior and the deck.
Or too small that the projects get pushed to the back-burner. Whenever a sliver of opportunity arises, I jump on it. The outcomes becomes a game of chance that I am at the mercy of time or timing. Like today, I decided, albeit late, to clean my front steps and railings. Why?
Because they were becoming an eye sour, and even I couldn’t stand them any longer. So, better late than never. Thank goodness the Daylight Saving time was on my side. But even then, I had to hurry up before darkness engulfed me and the house.
Tomorrow, I will find out just how good (or bad) a job I did.
