Spring Cleaning Tips To Help Get Your Check-list Started : The Saturday Weekend Review #215

PUT AWAY THE COZY BLANKETS AND GEAR UP FOR THE SPRING THAW.   In the dark Tuesday evening while trying to fall asleep all of a sudden I hear a voice, ” I can’t wait to smell the flowers, fresh-cut grass, peppery basil and feel the sunshine on my face.” It was Mrs. CBB and I wasn’t sure if she was talking to me or engaging conversation with herself.
