fall cleaning

I’ve been on a cleaning/organizing spree lately. My mom used to do both spring cleaning and fall cleaning when I was a kid, so maybe that’s on my mind. Yesterday as I was cleaning the kitchen floor I wished we still had a rug under the table. We moved the braided rug into the den a while back. Maybe I’ll keep an eye out for area rugs. We’ll see.

Also, I think I’m going to pull out the autumn/Halloween decorations this weekend. It’s a little early but if I don’t do it while I’m in the mood it might not get done. This year I plan to buy cornstalks to attatch to the front stairs. Never got around to that last year (of course I was dead tired being newly pregnant and all). The leaves are starting to turn a bit over here and the weather is certainly cooler. I’m not going to kid myself, though. I expect one more stretch of hot weather any day now.

  1. I’m currently in the middle of the “Great Purge of Fall 2009”. Our apartment has reached maximum capacity. The complex is hosting a yard sale in a few weeks and it has motivated me to clear out a lot of junk we no longer use or need. While cleaning, I’ll hopefully find my fall/Halloween decorations.

  2. It was neat driving to your house and seeing the few trees that are starting to change colors and lose leaves. Maybe you can find an area rug on Freecycle like we did! 🙂 I love braided rugs. Your house is decorated so nicely.

  3. I love Spring and Fall cleaning. It makes me feel good.

    Like Christina, I am in the middle of a purging process. It is killing me! How I let so much stuff wander into this house is beyond my comprehension. At least it will be orderly when I am done.

    Imagine my happiness, when randomly surfing from Jaya’s blog, I find you AND see Lisanne in comments. Small world!
