Today Brisbane was blanketed in all of Spring's glory. In fact, it could've passed as a Summer's day. It was hot!
I wasn't complaining though.
Spring is officially here, and I'm loving it.
Even the house looks prettier in Spring!
And while Ella was at Kindy today, Ryder & I spent some time outside.....in singlets and bare feet. Just as Spring should be.
The grass needs mowing, the gardens need weeding, but the air was crisp & the sky was blue. And that makes everything better, don't you agree?
And when the season shifts like this, what's a Mumma to do? De-clutter and Spring Clean of course.....
I only had one child in tow today - the perfect chance to tackle a cleaning job.
First stop - Ryder's room! I set him up on the floor with toys galore, opened the window to let in the gorgeous Spring air and got to work on his wardrobe....
I sorted through draws of baby clothes. 90% of it he has well & truly grown out of. So I culled. A pile to throw away. A pile to giveaway. And a pile to sell. I cleaned baby mats and swings, and things we no longer need, as our 'baby' nears one. I reorganised and re-shelved. I folded and neatened. I culled bigtime. It felt good. As good as a season shift :)
Tomorrow, I attack her Majesty's wardrobe :) It shouldn't take too long, as we did 'de-clutter' her room not so long ago. But I'm sure I'll find items that no longer fit or a no longer needed. There's something about 'clearing out' that exhilarates me. The clearing of a physical space, seems to clear my mind too. The hoarder in me, is gradually being overtaken by the live-more-simply-ME. Less stuff means less mess and less stress. I think. That's the aim anyway.
And while I'm on this Spring Cleaning frenzy, I may even attack the windows in this house. And since we live in a house of glass....that truly is a mammothly motivated task :) Wish me luck.
Hello Spring. Nice to see you.
