Yesterday my spring cleaning mode started to rev up into high gear. I called Stanley Steamer and had my carpets cleaned. And I decided it was time to wash all the winter grime off my car. You people from the Midwest and East Coast, back off. I know you don't think we have any "real" weather out here in California. I'm not talking about all that build-up in the wheel wells from slushy or muddy roads, dirty snow, etc. I've lived in the Midwest so I know what you guys go through. Really, I do. So mainly I'm talking about a lot of dirt, mushed bugs, etc. Anyway, I got it nice and clean, inside and out.

This morning, I made a brief tour of my house, admiring my clean carpets. Went outside and got in my car. Less than 24 hours and it is already completely covered with a film of yellow pollen. Ahh....choo!

Oh, if only we had something pollinating. We have yet ANOTHER winter storm watch for tomorrow. *sigh*

I think washing the car is just as hard to justify as making the bed. As soon as you wash it, it gets dirty again!

When we lived in California I kept a clean car. Here in Kansas we wait for Spring to wash our cars! It's too pickin' cold to wash 'em in the winter! Love, Janice

I've had my car cleaned three times this week. I think it's part of my patriotic duty to fuel the economy. God is just trying to encourage you to do your part.

I have a black car and loathe the filmy yellow coating of spring we get here as well.
