Spring Cleaning

It's that time of year again. Usually by now I'm done, but I've been putting it off this year. Probably due to the weather. 
However, this past weekend was absolutely beautiful and motivated me. So far my living room is half done. Curtains are down, cobwebs removed, and furniture vacuumed. There was a time I flew through the room. Not so anymore. I'm not as young as I used to be, so I had to take a break before I dust the furniture, wash the windows, vacuum the floors and hang the new curtains. 
Wow, looking at that, I realize I'm not even half done. Age does take its toll. Part of the reason I'm procrastinating is I'm thinking about buying new curtains. I do like the ones I have a red and white plaid, it gives the room a fresh cottagey look. 
So why do I want to change them? Hubby is making new pictures for the walls. Sail boats and sea gulls and they're predominately blue. I'm hoping to find a blue and white plaid similar to the red and white. They're a linen type material, but sort of sheer. So far I've not been able to find anything like them. I bought them at Penney's a few years ago. 
I guess I'll just save the money and put the red and white ones back up. So it's back to work. 

By the way, two of my books are on special right now from Amazon, Secrets, Lies & Love is on sale for 1.99 for a limited time
and Deadbeat Dads for 99 cents. 


  1. Don't wear yourself out, Ro! To the readers, both the books on special are great reads. Deadbeat Dads in particular is a book SO many women can relate to!

  2. Trust me, Gail, I've learned a long time ago not to wear myself out. Room is finished. I love the clean smell, fresh curtains and clean windows.

  3. I'm doing the bare minimum this year. I haven't gotten any actual get well cards, but I have a few on hand, so when Diane and her husband come for their visit, I'm going to have them laying around to explain why the dust has accumulated. :) I actually vacuumed the living room, then had to give myself a breathing treatment to stop wheezing. :) Who knew spring cleaning could feel like an olympic event? Like Gail said...I love your books for the reason that they are so relatable.

  4. Thank you, Ginger. I don't do quite as much as I used to and certainly not as much in one day. I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. Thank you. I'm glad you and Gail appreciate my books. Having another author say that means a lot. Of course, you and Gail both know how much I like your books. Two of my favorite authors.

  5. Hi Roseanne: onward into the housecleaning! I'm ignoring mine for the time being, even though I'm adrift in cat fur. The community garden is calling, and, as we all know, the dirt will still be there when I get home again! Nice post~~~
