    It is definitely time to get the spring cleaning done. I managed to shampoo the rugs inside but need to go outdoors now that it’s warming up a bit. We are building a deck and the backyard is still a mess. I really like how you created that small office area, it is giving me some ideas for my next project inside the house.
