I'm not sure whether its the beautiful weather we've had for a few days or the fact that I know I'm going to be laid up for awhile, but I have this itch to get some serious cleaning done in my house. I want everything to be spic and span and smelling clean and looking really nice. It's similar to what I remember feeling when I was in the latter months of pregnancy - a sort of desperate need to get things ready for when I'm not able to do them. That said, I'm much older and a bit lazier than I was back then so I seriously doubt the desire and the execution will match...but isn't it interesting how our instincts kick in?
I also think the weather is a factor because I'm feeling as though I want to see some daffodil shoots poke up through the ground. It's been such an unseasonably cold winter that a couple days in the 40s and 50s seem like early spring and I'm ready.
East Hampton is beautiful in the Spring. But I think we have another month before we can get too excited about that. I'm guessing this is really about not wanting to be stuck on the couch convalescing, noticing the dust in the corners or the dirty windows. My normal way of dealing with those things is to get out of the house and not look at them! Being a captive audience may just do me in...sigh.....
