To Bike or Not

It's a party here. I now have all the VCR movies lined up to the edge of the shelf. The DVDs on the shelf above are edged with their shelf also. This may seem unimportant to some, but neatness counts and the shelves are now neat. (I need a life)
Dust has been rearranged, pictures wiped off and floors vacuumed and mopped. From room to room, I've traveled with my dust cloth and Windex.  Broken or unused items discarded, the extra bedrooms are neat and fresh.
It's a spring like day and a spring like cleaning in progress. 
The sun pops out from behind a cloud, or more correctly, the clouds skim past the sun and for a few minutes the shower of sunlight warms. Too soon another cloud moves into the sun's path and a chill is felt. As the afternoon wears on, the temperatures drop and the possibility of a bike ride has past. Maybe tomorrow.
Eventually the smell of garlic roils in from the kitchen. The husband is happily back at the stove and enjoying himself. 
Huge meatballs  crowd a huge skillet, a sauce bubbles in a pot and the pasta has been dropped into boiling water. A salad and a  chilled Merlot will be served with dinner. It's nice to have a husband that enjoys cooking.  
My part in all this is the cleanup which I gladly do.  Bon Appetit!  


  1. Sounds like you have my room ready! LOL

  2. It was -10 and we were out shoveling snow again. There is a good (good?) 3 or 3 1/2 foot snow wall lining either side of the driveway.

  3. Oh you're making me feel very lazy and guilty. I really need to do a good spring clean!

  4. John: Guest rooms, queen size beds, fresh towels, always ready.

    Buffalo: amazing, the differences in temps. No snow..but more cold then is normal for this area.

    Linda: tip of the iceberg on the cleaning. I never get it all done at one time. It's liveable.
