Spring Cleaning

I am up and running again.:o) I haven't been posting, been too busy cleaning.
With DH still out of work , we have been getting a jump start on Spring. We have been spring cleaning our Home.We've had several storms come through this winter and have several trees down around the Homestead.Once the weather warms up enough to do outdoor chores,we have our work cut out for us! We will cut, stack, and burn the wood.
We only have a few more things to do inside .DH has been a Great help!:o) I am so Thankful to get it behind us:o)
After tomorrow we should be able to slow down ,enjoy the simple life and sip a cup a.... Altho we do take many breaks and enjoy a cup a and enjoy each other's company and the day.
I am doing another major decluttering,altho I have to admit I haven't been bringing items into the home for the past 15 mons. so I have accomplished that goal, only needful things and no wants, it has helped a great deal. I've been sharing Family Treasures with the next Generation under me.I've saved 5 Generations of Family Treasures to share Someday ,well........Someday has
Last yr. we stockpiled for a yr. we had never stocked piled for 12 months , we did quite well and just now need to restock. Once restocking it takes some time and effort to moved old to front of shelves and new to the back, but well worth it. I've been cooking some old Family and found recipes .SO far all I've tried has been a hit.
I have all my craft supplies organized in clear totes (easy to find for projects) I shared alot of supplies, and down sized supplies also.
I hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to a new season "Spring", spring is my favorite season, the rebirth of everything.

We moved again back in Novwember and I still don't hawve eveything unpacked yet. I did start on some yesterdy, but I'm jut fogonna do a little at a time. I sdon't want to over do it. Sounds as if you have really been b usy and kept your DH busy as well. WE he some tree beranches tht still need to be picked up outside here as well. Th eCity aaid if we piled them up all out by the road, they would pick them up free o charge. They ar still out ther and all over town too. Tke care my friend and have a great day.

Hi Lib! Glad to see you are back! I too am spring cleaning - I cannot wait to be done!

I think you need a vacation 'bout coming to SC and helping me with my Spring cleaning? ha-ha I am decluttering when I have time...although I really haven't had much time to bring much of anything home what with working all the time. But there are always things I can get rid of each year. It keeps getting less and less to go through. I, like you, have been passing things on to my children...I certainly cannot take these things with me to my final resting grounds someday, as all it really amounts to is just "STUFF." At least, that's how I look at it.

Have a great weekend coming up! We still have some snow out there but it is melting each day. We are to be in the 70's all weekend! Yippee!!!
