My contribution to Cate @ Moments of Whimsy ‘s weekly Sunday Share.
While Cate waxed poetic about the beauty of Autumn, because she’s on the other side of the globe in New Zealand, I’m here in Eastern Canada where we are experiencing a record breaking, way above seasonal temperatures, God-it’s-good-to-be-alive Spring.

Dishes, laundry, sweeping, vacuuming, dusting, picking up and putting away…need I go on?
But in the last couple of years I’ve begun to appreciate what a full on scrub down, a top to bottom de-webbing and an every room uncluttering can really do for your soul.
