The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Fall Chores

October 18, 2015

My husband and I have certain chores to be done with each season. Fall and Spring means cleaning windows and washing blinds.

We start with a bucket, a bar of soap, a water hose and really old shoes and a ladder.

Unlock the windows, remove the screens and wet down the windows.

We use a brush on a pole as well as a rag and scrubber.

We clean our shutters at the same time and make sure to rinse the soap off the windows really well so it does not spot.

We wash the screen too.

We have a place that we wash our blinds. We use a part of our privacy fence.

We hang the blinds on two screws.

Just a simple way to hang them...

Wet them down with the water hose....

Scrub both sides...

Rinse real good...

We hang them on a line with clamps to dry in the sunshine.

We wash the windows inside before putting the blinds back up.

It always feels good to have the windows washed inside and out, the blinds and the curtains washed and fresh before going into winter with everything closed up.

I hope this has inspired you to clean your windows twice a year. We will be doing this again next spring.
