A Fun Chore

There is a chore that I just love to do!!  Can you guess?  Yep - washing windows!!
Crazy - I know, but there is something so nice about the light streaming in sparkling clean windows!!  Now, I don't get to this job very often - especially the outside part - but it seems like I am overcome by the urge for clean windows about this time every year.  I think it has to do with taking down the Christmas tree and needing as much light as possible for the rest of winter. 

This last week we were blessed with snow and then bright sunshine - which made every bit of dust and every fingerprint show up!!  That urge to shine my windows was overpowering!!  So I got out my handy window cleaner and paper towels and went to work!!

I did decide that given my pregnant condition teetering on a stepstool in freezing temps outside was not for me - no matter how much I love the job - so I handed it off to my big 18 year old.  He did a mighty fine job!!  Now I can enjoy the light so much better!!

Just in time for the snow to melt and the very dark and dreary rain to return (it's really, really dark and grey here now!!!)  But my windows are clean and shiny and I am enjoying them!!!!

(I am thinking that this is a really weird post - window washing?!!!  Really?!!!  Oh well - I just gonna go with it - it's raining and I haven't had any coffee yet :0)!!

I LOVE clean windows too, but washing them is LESS than my favorite chore. :) I can totally relate, though, to the need for clean windows. SO glad you did not stand on a ladder or chair to wash your windows...thankful for willing kids to help. :)

Praying for more snow and sunshine for you...and me. It's dark and dreary here too. :(
