Spring Cleaning

I remember my mom would always take one day mid-spring and do an honest-to-God top-to-bottom Spring Cleaning. It was so thorough, it required capitalization. We’d have to make sure everything was off the bookshelves, our bed was moved, and that she had easy access to the windows. And afterwards, everything smelled like cleaning solution.

Our “spring cleaning” is nowhere near that magnitude. That’s why it gets quotations and lowercase letters. We’ll do a room or two at a time at about 80% thoroughness (compared to my mom) and spread it out over a month or two. This past weekend was the first weekend of our “spring cleaning” and it went relatively well.

What’s it like around your abode? Or your adobe? Pueblo?
