Going for my daily walk was great not having to don all the winter grub. Some mornings I just wore a tee-shirt. Fantastic! But it proved to be short-lived then yoyoing. It was a winter wonderland on April 21st then a week later a high of 22 degrees Celsius. Back to wearing coats and hats then slathering on sunscreen.
Once again, the goal was trying to pair things down. After living in my house for twenty years, I want to scale back to just the essentials. Not an easy feat but a continual work in progress.
As a homeowner, spring cleaning is not just a required and needed service, so is maintenance. Over the next weeks and months, I will be highlighting various house maintenance chores required during the spring season.

However, there are times when professionals should do some maintenance work. All this will be explored.
In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful sunshine and everything that springtime has to offer. Enjoy reading the poem Spring Has Sprung.
