52 Lists: Week 10 - Cleansing for Spring

This week's theme is The Ways You Can Cleanse for Spring and while I've never been really much for the idea of spending days or weeks doing the so called spring cleaning phenomenon, I admit there are certain things that just seem to get done in the spring.

Open the windows
Having fresh air coming into the house just makes me feel better.

Shampoo the Carpets
We like to do this a few times a year.  Spring and fall are a great time, because we can have the windows open to air dry faster.

Wardrobe Switch
The seasonal change is obviously a good time to throw out old clothes, donate what we don't need, store seasonal items, and bring out the summer clothes and toys.

Buy new summer shoes
So um, this one just makes me feel better.  I love a good comfy pair of flip flops.

Clean the porches/outdoor furniture
Washing the porches and patio table and such usually gets done once the weather starts to turn pretty.

Build a Walkway
We need a new walkway.  I want it done this year.

Organize Homeschool Materials
As we near the end of the "official" year, it's a good time to store curriculum we don't need for awhile, file paperwork and assessments, sell/donate what I won't use again, and get rid of old papers and projects and artwork that we're not keeping forever.
