Today is the 3rd day in a row where there has been a lot of sunshine. So much so, that I'm almost tempted to open the windows and start spring cleaning.  I know, I know, in January I really shouldn't open windows because it's only 30 degrees outside.  But, it's 30 degrees outside. That's huge compared to when it's 3 or -5 with out the windchill. So, with 30 degree weather plus sunshine, I have gotten into spring cleaning mode.  Today I  came up with a list. I know it's not a big list and I know I may be missing a lot of items and places to clean- but it's my list and I'm sharing it with you all. For anything I have missed, please tell me in the comment section. I promise I will add to the list those comments and other items that I have found needs to be cleaned.

The list will go room by room.

All rooms

  •  Sweep the floor.
  • Vacuum.
  • Shampoo the carpet.
  • Wash the windows, baseboards and walls. 
  • Clean all the cobwebs from the ceiling.
