It's beginning to feel a bit like fall here. We had a couple 80 degree days last week and hubby and I went swimming in our pond and enjoyed the sunshine and warmth. We both agreed that this was most likely the last of the days warm enough to swim. We had rain and cool weather over the weekend and temps in the forecast are looking a lot more like fall. I'm sad to see summer come to an end. It is my favorite of all seasons. But, it is time to embrace fall and all the changes that come with it.
Do you have a list of things you do in the fall around your home? I've always take this time to do a little fall cleaning. After a summer of open windows and doors the dust really starts to collect in all the corners. I also like to clean my kitchen cupboards. I use to do a lot of fall baking and cooking so in preparation I would clean and reorganize the cupboards. I don't do as much baking anymore but I still like using this time of year to just freshen up the kitchen. I need to wash windows and curtains as well.
Clothing is another area that I deal with. Years ago it was for all 8 children and me. Putting away the summer clothes and pulling out the fall/winter clothes. It was a big job. It's nice now that it is down to just me (hubby handles his own :). I was inspired by reading an article on folding clothes recently. I know it sounds almost simplistic, after all I've been folding clothes (lots of them :D ) for 35+ years now. But, this lady had a method of folding that made better use of the space and made clothes easier to find. I've never really enjoyed laundry (just accepted it) and so my drawers have not always been the most organized ha, ha. So I thought as I go through my summer clothes and change over it would be a good time to reaccess this make some changes to see if it would help stay organized. I'll keep you posted on this and if I like it.. I'll share more.. maybe it will give me a new view on laundry!
My kitchen, bathroom and laundry room floors also need a good cleaning. Not just run the mop over them cleaning. But clean the corners and edges and give it a good scrubbing.
So far that is my fall cleaning list. I may add more as I move along.
What about you.. do you do any fall cleaning?
And I have a question about laundry.. I know people who love it, and those who don't.. we all have to do it.. but..
do you.. love it or not?
