Harlequin does his bit of spring cleaning.
I've always loved the idea of spring-cleaning, opening the windows, hanging the laundry on the clothesline, chucking out all the old clutter.

Today I opened the kitchen window and breathed deep... AHH, smell the fresh spring air. Holy crow! I shut the window quick as it is freezing and the weather people say it may snow. Sigh, so opening the windows will need to wait for another month. Another slight set back is that I lost my clothes line in the fire. I will not be able to hang clothes outside just yet; I have to wait until they rebuild the garage.
I could still do the great purge part 2.
- Though, I do need boxes. I could use bags like last time. No. I need boxes.
- So…a, well maybe I should take a break get a cup of tea and read the paper.
- And, um, I have books I want to read.
- Oh, I know. I have to go to the store for bread, milk, eggs, and stuff.
- Oh, look. The mail came. Darn it is just flyers.
- So, I should begin the cleaning.
- Oh, wait, look. It is. Ah, um, well, something more interesting than cleaning I’m sure.
- There. So you see I am too busy just now to do any cleaning.
We'll purge another day on the East Coast.
Is that a song title? Makes me think of a song title. Oh! I can look it up on the internet. Nope. It is not a song title. I guess I was thinking of the words to Rise Again. Not that the words have anything to do with cleaning, sorting or purging stuff.
Yes. Well. Busy.
I am not making excuses. I am very busy. Cleaning will just have to wait.
Procrastination on the East Coast.
