Green Spring Cleaning

It is President's Day.
First day of my spring cleaning.

Tulips are just beginning to show as are the crocuses and daffodils.

Spring is a month away.
I want to be ready!

A robin sings from the roof top.

It is sunny and cold.

I gathered my cleaning supplies.

It is time to wash windows

and scrub the cabinets.

Soon the bees will wake up.

I will want to be outside when they do.

By I starting today I just might be finished when the tulips bloom!

Happy Spring cleaning!

Something about Magic + Soap. Does it make the dirt magically disappear? tee hee... You are so full of energy. I hope I come home from vacation with that verve.

I want to find some of the castile soap. I use ONLY green products! They are better for so many reasons...but I must say they are easier on your skin and no bad odors to breathe! Happy cleaning! I just made a HUGE mess with some fur fabric in my hobby room so cleaning is my next 'creative' project! lol

Way back when I used to backpack I always took Dr. Bronner's soap with me. You can use it for everything - dishes, clothes, hair, body, teeth... One, lightweight item that has multiple uses is the way to go when packing for the trail.

Hi Sherry,
I just had 3 days to start my cleaning, but time kept getting away from my while blogging. I had great fun doing my "indoor" gardening.

I'm glad you are so motivated. Maybe some of that will rub off onto me.

Spring cleaning!!
Great idea..
I love your environmental and sensitive choice of cleaning products:)
I am not sure about the loofah sponge?
(a.k.a luffa,loofa, loofah, loofash or loufa)
I am using the loofah sponge in the shower or bath tub to remove dead skin cells.
Happy President's Day.

Love those little tulips peeking up from the Earth. "It's time!" they call to one another.
Spring cleaning is in the air. I agree - let's get it done now before the nice weather!
I'm glad you are back from your vacation, happy and full of energy.
