I love the spring for many reasons, not the least of which is that it seems to be my time of year to clean up, give or throw things away and open up the spaces that have been cluttered all winter. Last year I took a week of vacation and spent the entire time at home, doing garden clean up, house clean out, and indulging in fiber frenzy. I had such a wonderful time that I am doing the same thing this year. It seems to be nesting in reverse. Housecleaning is NOT my favorite thing to do but I really get into it in the spring, and while I'm at it, I inventory, make huge piles for garbage, selling, donating, etc. I start vacation on the 23rd and can't wait!
Am I crazy or do others do the same thing?

Linda, knitting and now spinning away in MD

I do it too and actually enjoy it. The only time of year that the true housecleaning/house organizing bug hits. It's almost like coming out of a cocoon - getting all the winter hibernation stuff packed away, cleaning while you do it. Then I feel ready for the simpler (less stuff/clothes needed - at least that's the idea) summer to come. Usually a home improvement project comes out of it too - painting a room, new light fixture, etc. Spring is such a wonderful time.

No, you're not crazy........I'm doing much the same thing. Sunshine makes me see corners of the house I didn't notice all winter long. I'm into Freecycling too, so anything I haven't used gets moved along to another household that can use it. Makes cleaning even easier, someone comes & picks things up as I get them moved to the porch!
I've even made it to the bottom (well, almost) of my project stash. Only have 4 ongoing items at the moment.

Um, if any of you would like to come to my house and do all that I'll buy the cleaning supplies.

I feel the need to clean, but i tend not to if I can at all avoid it. I do however sort through stuff and get rid of things I dont want/need- the most recent being a massive stash reduction (getting rid of all the yarn I know ill never knit with) a couple weeks ago, and now the "cleaning spirit" has continued to my store, where on a whim i marked everything 50% off for today. Being able to ship it elsewhere beats organizing it! handspun and handpainted yarns, fibers, and kits.
