Spring Cleaning

Howdy y'all!
  It has been a rather long time since I have posted.  Believe it or not, I actually didn't know what to post about. I know that comes as a shock to some of you... ;-)  Actually, was I quite determined to get something posted because I missed getting all the lovely comments from my readers! :-)

So, first off, I don't know if I ever mentioned that I had fallen through the hole in someones house and scraped up my knee pretty badly. Any how, I did, but it healed up nicely (after a long time.. it was bruised, too).  Well, we had the pleasure of attending a theatre in town to watch Anne of Green Gables. It was beautifully done and really fun to watch.  Actually, it was just kind of nice to get to WATCH a drama play instead of act in it. Great to get some good ideas and see some wonderful acting (a good way to improve your own acting is to watch good actors!) Any how, I happened to fall on the rough carpet during the break in-between act 1 and 2 and scraped up my knee... same knee.  Unfortunately I have to keep it slightly bent or else it hurts. So, I've been walking around limping on tip toe on that foot! Pretty interesting.. or not. I guess that was kind of boring, but it was kind of something to post about. ;-)

But, as my post isn't titled 'injured knee', I shan't bore you any more on the subject.  I'll bore you on another one. :-)

Lately we've been doing a bit of cleaning around the house.  We've been sick, so the house got a bit messy. Messier than usual. Y'all know how it can get when everyone in the house is sick. Not much gets done. Any how, it was SO wonderful to get the house cleaned up.  Then I realized that is why we do big cleaning in the Spring.  During the winter, all you want to do is curl up next to the fire with a good book and a cup of tea.  Then, you're longing for spring to come.  Once it's here, though, you get that 'bug'. That itch. You want to get something done.  For me, it's typically airing out the house and cleaning up the place.  So, I wonder when "Spring cleaning" began.  Who came up with the whole idea?  I would imagine that it was someone just like me.  Someone who got that 'bug' come spring time to clean out the house from top to bottom.

Any how, that's really kind of a random tidbit, but oh well.  The weather has been much nicer here, though, with just a few breezes instead of 70mph winds.  I've been able to open the window and only get minimal dirt on my bed. ;-) But, it was wonderful to air the house out and get rid of any floating germs and whatnot.

Well, another bull sale is coming up! We'll see how this one goes. I might be helping out 'behind the scenes' (registering buyers, handling money, something), but we'll see.

And, as my dad is calling me a 'computer hijacker' (this is his laptop... oops!) I'd better run!! He's after now!! ;-)

In Christ's Service,

Aw, I sorry you hurt yourself. =( Hope it feels better soon!

I'm in a spring cleaning mood myself! I hate having a messy house and am cleaning and tossing things left and right. =D I've been going through all of my summer clothes and getting rid of things I don't wear very much or that are too small. The weather has been unbelievable warm for March (81 yesterday!!), so the short sleeves are coming out. =)
The house feels and looks so much better after spring cleaning, though, and I'm glad to do it.

Enjoy your cleaning!

Sorry to hear about your knee, hope it heals quickly! :) And I've read the book and seen the movies, but I've never seen a play of Anna of Green Gables! That's something that I definitely have to do! :) And I agree, cleaning the house just seems to fit spring time! Nice post!

After the house has been closed up all winter it is just sooo stuffy! I have to get it nice and clean too!

I tagged you in a post!

I know EXACTLY what you mean when you talk about "that itch"! I get it every spring. I have to clean something and air out the house, too. I really enjoyed reading this post. It wasn't a bit boring. ;)

Hey Sarah! thanks for your comment on my blog. ;)

Sorry about your knew, I just prayed you'd get better! Oh, and I like cleaning in spring too...just cleaned out the fridge and we've been planting our garden. :)

Thanks! It's getting better. :)
Yes, I'm so glad for warm weather! We've had a few days that are warm enough to wear short sleeves without a light sweater. :) I'm just itching for it to warm up a lil' more!

The play was really well done. Not as good as the movie, as you can guess, but it was still nicely done. Thanks for your comment!

Yes! Absolutely! In fact, the first day of 'spring', when it's warm enough, I've got all the windows open,airing out the house. I typically freeze everyone because it isn't quite warm enough, but it doesn't matter to me! haha! Thank you for the tag! :)

Haha! Glad to see another person that has that itch! I'm glad this post wasn't boring.. sometimes I wonder if all my ramblings become so when I'm writing out a post... ;) Thanks for the comment!

you're welcome!
Thanks for the prayer for my knee. It's healing up so far. :)
We are anxious to plant our garden. But, we're trying to hold ourselves back because it always gets warm around here, and then we have one more freeze.. so, we're waiting until that passes. :) Thank you for the comment!
