Spring cleaning, Here and Now

via Maisons Côté Est
We are enjoying a beautiful Spring day here in Southern California.  The blue, blue skies and sunshine have motivated me to change out all the winter linens for the summer linens.  All the cushions and slipcovers are getting washed as well and everything is going outside to be dried in the fresh air. 

I remember my Great-Aunt Melba saying one time that she was sure that’s why her family was rarely sick.  She said they made it a practice of airing out sheets and opening up the doors and windows to let in fresh air and sunshine as much as possible, even on a brisk winter’s day.   Sound advice. 

I’m looking forward to a bigger Spring cleaning project coming up this weekend.  Tackling the attic is on my To-Do list.  I was going to wait until I had the renovation completed as most of it is a result of the project paraphernalia still about, but here I am about to celebrate another birthday tomorrow and I am realizing that time is not waiting for me to get around to it.     It’s now or never.  There’s no time like the present.  You can teach a man to fish…and…There’s no “I” in team. *

So, yes.  This giveaway is a little birthday celebration I concocted.  The image above is from Côté Est Magazine   ‒a 1 year subscription is the prize at-hand.  As I write this, we have about 8 1/2 hours to the deadline.  (ELIGIBILITY DETAILS HERE)  And if you already subscribe to  Côté Est or would just prefer, you can opt instead for a $50 gift certificate for shopping the many items in the emporium.

Thank you one and all for your support of linen & lavender.  
I can’t wait to announce the lucky winner tomorrow!

 *Just a little Ellen humor to brighten your day–if you don’t know the reference, make sure you stop everything you are doing right now and watch the DVD:  Ellen DeGeneres:  Here and Now.  Seriously.  Don’t procrastinate.  Do it now.  🙂
