Re: RE: holiday decorating

Hi Pam, this is a scream!  I've learned how to let the "winds come sweeping
down the plains" help me with spring and fall cleaning!  Just open all the
windows, get the box and window fans in the right directions, and let that
breeze send that dust out the windows!  At least anything that comes in will
be "new" dust to me so what the heck?!

Been keeping up with messages and busy putting the outside to "bed" and
getting the inside ready.  Like Pam, I'm freezing when it drops too low,
like the 60s.  I can't believed I survived all those winters in Pittsburgh
growing up?

Been moving some perennials and they now look great!  Fall and spring are
the best for puttering in the yard in this neck of the woods.  Roses are
blooming and was able to pick a bunch for a coworker/friend/s birthday
today.  Makes it worth it to bear with the heat to get to this point.

Take care younz'all, Fran, OKC, OK

Donna - I wasn't kidding when I said I was leaving all the cobwebs up
until Halloween. They're in every room in the house. I know it's time to
vacuum when Sugar stops laying on the floor and sits up on the furniture
and looks at me like "yo Miss Thang - is the vacuum cleaner busted or
what?". Dusting? Ha, about the time I can plant petunias on the
furniture, I dust. Like Pat says - the only time I really go all out on
the house is when Jesse comes to vist. Nuff said about my cleaning??
