I can see clearly now ...

So, I'm starting a little early, as it's not yet january. But, I thought it would be alright to go ahead and start posting since I have a few days off to get some things done around the house without having clients or other work-related obligations going on. Yesterday, my dad came over in the afternoon to help me change out my window screens to storm windows. Since my little old house has minimal insulation, this was very necessary. There were only three windows that didn't already have the storm windows on them, so that part was pretty easy. However, I was quickly shamed by the realization that I don't think I've ever really cleaned the windows (inside and out) since I moved into this place. (Very naughty of me!) We were only able to finish the large double window in the living room, but it's absolutely amazing the difference that cleaning made. (Go figure, right?) The windows sparkle and the room has come alive under the crisp clarity of those shiny panes. No more cobwebs. No more yucky layers of filthy film to fog up the room. It's brilliant! So, today, after our hike, I think we're going to try to finish up the other windows. (We lost too much daylight to finish yesterday.) It's amazing what a little elbow grease and some Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day cleaning spray can do to liven up a room. I can't wait to wake up the rest of the house.
