Early start

I accidentally got a head start on my spring cleaning today.  Perhaps it was the sunshine streaming in through the windows, highlighting every speck of dirt, dust, and grime in the house.  Perhaps it was the start of a new month and a fresh start on another project.  Perhaps I was just in the mood.

It started innocently enough.  I was going to clean the upstairs bathroom (pictured above without great light but remarkably clear for the lack of lighting and lack of tripod usage).  Just a surface clean, mind you.  Nothing major.  The next thing I know, I’m cleaning out drawers, decluttering the closet, taking down the shower curtain, scrubbing corners and crevices with a toothbrush, and experimenting with Iron Out to see if it really will remove the rust stains caused by the iron in our well water.

Whatever the motivation behind it, I have now declared it Early Spring Clean Season in my household.  I hope I can keep the motivation and momentum going.  The house really does need a thorough scrub down.
