Spring Cleaning~

A gentle rain falls outside my windows today while a cold breeze filters through my screen door settling onto my skin. Fall has arrived with trees changing their color & shedding their leaves, my family shedding its inhibitions to Spring clean (in Fall).

Today I'm taking a break from cleaning window frames, door facings, baseboards & light fixtures to write this post. We're getting ready to paint our kitchen... yikes. Hope I can keep it together long enough to see it through. I hate change and even worse I hate things to be moved from its natural place.  If the kitchen painting goes well then we hope to do the living room next.

We've also become more health conscious. Our weight is past healthy. We've been exercising and eating healthier since last Monday. I've already reaped the benefits of losing one pound. Only 29lbs to reach my goal weight. Tonight's homemade vegetable soup should help add to our healthful start and keep us warm during autumn's chill.

Spring cleaning sounds good. I often find myself doing that in the fall and surely need to this year.

We must be on the same track, except that I am working in my bathroom.

Wish I had some of that vegetable soup. It would be perfect on this rainy day.

Sounds like you're taking several positive turns this autumn.

I did some of that yesterday. Good luck with the healthier eating!

You sound so busy! But once change like this settles, it's like smiling, uplifting light gives the home new energy!

And it's been raining here too! Again!

I made a veggie and shrimp soup last night... and I'm also doing the cleaning/losing weight thing. Funny how that can happen in the fall, too.

We've been eating split pea and lentil and brown rice soup this week, and will undoubtedly ruin it by eating in a restaurant later today!

But if we gain too much, we'll be more inactive and then more separate from the natural world. That would be bad.

Good luck with the painting. We have been forever at house renovations, and it sure takes a lot of precious time from things we'd rather be doing. But we have to hold down the fort, and keep it in good repair, as well!

I need to start that healthy living thing again...
