Spring Cleaning

On a beautiful day last week, the sort of March day that feels like June and smells like ebullient freedom, it was time yet again to rent a carpet cleaner. Not just for the floors, but more for the chairs, the cushions, and that spot on the back seat of the car. (Where did that come from?)

Fortunately we had lots of help. Well, the “help” mostly took the form of keeping the car company; since the kids are almost never allowed to play in there, the fact that I had all the doors open for hours on end was quickly deemed The Greatest Thing Ever.

Also there are all kinds of games that one can play on a line of chairs set out in the sunshine, although they refused to repeat any of these games after I’d gotten the camera.

It was a long day of work, but I don’t feel embarrassed to invite people to sit down any more. Next up: windows….
