Spring Cleaning

So what do you consider essential spring cleaning?And do you have an organized approach to it?Cleaning the closets kicks spring cleaning off for me. I ruthlessly went through my clothing closet and coat closet last weekend. If I hadn't worn it in the last year it was donated. (I was glad to find a local church that collects clothing and distributes them free to those who may need them.) Now I'm trying to find the energy for all the scrubbing and dusting that needs done.

Renee B. replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion If you had a work, chore and kid-free day to binge watch a series, which one would it be?
"I just finished season three of Downton Abbey because I was home with bronchitis. BTW watching that tear inducing season did not help my congestion. Anyway, I'm soldiering on to season 4."

"Crocus. I don't have any, plus I doubt it would do well here. I have daffodil by my mailbox. They are quite nice. "

"I am officially on spring break this coming Saturday.  Maybe I'll make some finger sandwiches and invite the hubby for tea. (At lunch time of course.) Our new fence should be done and it would be a pleasant diversion. Thank you for the…"

Renee B. replied to Lydia's discussion How soon do the farmers markets near you open? in the course Lovely Social Club
"When I lived in Pittsburgh, PA I could definitely say: May to October. We had designated farmer's markets selling produce. Some opened in April selling plants for gardens. In southern Virginia, there are "farmer's markets", but…"

Renee B. replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion Scandinavian TV Phenomenon: Slow TV
"I LOVE IT!!! Of course; I was a fan of silent films on the YouTube. And films with subtitles.... I might have to get NexFlix or what ever it is called. Darn, I feel old and I am only 46!"

Renee B. replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion What do you think about this article on removing kitchens from houses?
"Nifty idea....but I question whether it would work in real life. I really like to cook, but I know lots of other people in my area do not and rely on processed ready to eat fare that I would prefer to avoid. I also know I have two cats and as clean…"

Renee B. commented on the course Creative Writing 101: The Lost Art of Letter Writing
"Are they pen-pals from way back or are you and others choosing to write letters in place of emails, etc? I don't think I have written or received a true letter since the early 2000s. I used to keep boxes of old letters (not cards) until a fire…"

Renee B. replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion What are your strengths in the kitchen? Weaknesses? in the course Home Economics 105: Sunday Suppers
"I'm pretty decent at sauteing and baking, but grilling...oh no! It doesn't matter if it is charcoal or gas grilling, it freaks me out. I can manage veggies in foil, but meat is a different story. Meat turns out burned on the outside and…"
