52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History: Spring

I can’t think of a story about spring that doesn’t include the word “cleaning.” My family was big on spring cleaning and my job was always windows.  I’d mix up a big metal pail with vinegar and water and dunk in newspapers to do the wiping.  

We’d pack up the winter wear and bring out the summer clothing, holding back just a few winter favorites that we knew we’d wear to extinction.

The beds and curtains would be striped and beaten with a mop on the back porch to get all the dust out.

The daffodils would be in bloom and all would be clean and sparkly.
