Sandals, flowery sundresses, shorts, and robins!
Living in Pennsylvania during February, March, and April is always a tease for this California girl. Being in California the first 35 years of my life has conditioned me to pull out sandals, flowery sundresses, and shorts -- today here in Pennsylvania the low was 24 degrees fahrenheit - still wearing sweaters and scarves, ugh! Today I saw robins searching for earthworms in the frozen earth -- a positive sign that warmer days are soon approaching - I have learned that when the robins arrive here spring is quickly approaching. Do you have Springtime traditions? Since I can't wear those light and bright clothes yet I am washing and beginning to store some of the winter gear. Are you feeling the desire for those sandals, floral dresses, and shorts?
Another "conditioned response" this time of year is doing a thorough cleaning of my house. After months of shuttered windows, forced heat, dark clothes everything seems to need serious cleaning out, scrubbing, & scouring. Over the weekend I washed the floors by adding several drops of Purification Essential Oil into my floor cleaning solution and the house smelled fresh and bright -- even the husband noticed. Additionally, the floors no longer are dull from snow & salt melt.
If you are feeling the same conditioned response to clean out the winter darkness in your home, there are some great free products available when you are on Essential Rewards.
How do you like to freshen up your home after a long, dark & cold winter?
