When we had the windows, sidings and roof replaced on our 1847 Farmhouse last year, I had the 1930s coop updated. It was due for a coat of paint and we had leftover siding. I used the old windows from the house which have both screens and storms and the new Hardie siding. In the Wisconsin winters, the coop is certainly less drafty! I had it sided without telling my husband knowing he'd say, "No!" and yet be glad when he saw it finished.

Impressive in more ways than one - it may be "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous" but it's also a comfortable family home where, despite rooms galore, the daughters share bedroom/bathroom. A hymn to our SoCal climate where the Outdoors inspire all.

Another type of useful 'spring cleaning':

With the sudden deaths of some family members and friends over the past few years, I realize how important it is for us not to leave behind stuff that no one wants. My mother started to give away her treasured belongings before she died and, in so doing, was able, in person, to tell the recipient how much (s)he mattered to her. It made settling her estate that much easier for me and also allowed for some special memorable moments between gift giver and receiver.

A friend, who died suddenly, left behind cupboards full of papers, unfinished works of 'art' and piles of stuff that her family, after months of sorting through (they lived out of town) eventually just tossed into the recycling bins or garbage.

So my spring cleaning will involve shredding papers that I no longer need to keep and generally paring down to the barest minimum what I can live with and still enjoy life.

AND, I will finally make a Will.

I will certainly try the nasturtium suggestion, Lori. My Aussie is donating hair balls right now to keep the little lop-eared darling away. The nasturtium will look much nicer! Thank you.
