And it usually is but spring cleaning is not all it’s cracked up to be. Folks speak about it as a happy time; really? It’s like saying to your kid, “Guess what’s for supper? Your favorite, spinach!
Anyway, I did some spring cleaning today. I washed the windows. A rag, a roll of paper towels, and Windex. I love Windex. I use it for about any cleaning job. I’ve even toyed with the idea of brushing my teeth with it. A little dab on the toilet paper freshens things right up.
After my window cleaning job was done, I noticed things in the outside world could use a little cleaning up too. Everything looks dull and drab. Makes me wonder why I even cleaned the windows. I could have waited for a good rain and ran a squeegee over them. Isn’t that how you wash your car?
I noticed the first item on my spring cleaning list was; clean glasses. Wow, I thought I was going blind. Hadn’t been clean since fall cleaning.
With my glasses cleaned, the world doesn’t look so bad. I guess there’s sort of a life lesson in all of this; cleaning your own glasses before looking at the world around you.
