We've been working our fingers to the bone around here! It happens every year. The house has been closed up all winter and you would not believe the amount of dust that accumulates on every surface, high and low. Now, I admit I'm not the most diligent housekeeper but even Martha Stewart would have a hard time keeping up with the dirt generated by living on a country road. Besides, I understand she has staff - a lot of staff!
Here you see my staff. Chris has hauled the vacuum up to that high shelf to give it a good clean. Obviously something I would not be capable of. You will notice there are two ladders in this photo. I'm no slacker in this enterprise my friends. Believe it or not we also washed down every beam in the house! Nuts right? My husband is a firm believer in doing a job right or not at all. Every ceiling fan blade is slick as a whistle. Now you know what I've been doing instead of blogging or sewing or lounging around reading a good book! Chris, I hear your old job calling... Just kidding. It really is great to have help around here with this odious chore. Those wires you see are my indoor clothes lines. I told you about drying our clothes inside here.
As if inside spring cleaning wasn't enough we've also been doing some major outdoor cleanup. Winter always results in downed and damaged trees that need tending to. These are just the ones inside the fence around the house! Yep, I'm a helper with that project too although I confess I'm more of a fetcher than anything else. I do know how to use a chainsaw though and I have a very sharp pair of loppers!
Is it summer vacation yet?
