Happy New Year!
It’s 2011… the first ten years of the millennium has just ended and we are now on to the second decade… Can you believe it?
I was holding on dearly to 2010… having some unfinished business and loose ends to deal with. One of the major loose ends that needed to be done, for me, was “spring cleaning” before the new year. I wish we have someone cleaning for us – FAT CHANCE! And so, the husband and I did beginning Monday. You wouldn’t believe how much clutter we un-cluttered, and how much dust we dusted off of our house. Oh dear, where did all these stuff come from?
We didn’t stop there… we then re-arranged the furniture, and livened up the room with flowers and some decors. We also fixed the lights in the rooms, especially in the living room – they’re too bright. We bought low-wattage bulbs along Monivong Blvd because my husband and I prefer soft lights. It may not be as great as having Hinkley lighting at home but definitely better than what we had.
All the dust, however, must have caused my worsening cold. Nevertheless, after the last bag of trash (of mostly papers) and dust had been cleared out, and the bulbs have been changed, the house is now looking spic and span. After several days of spring cleaning, we were relaxed and enjoyed ourselves in the living room with softer lights as we welcomed the New Year – the year of the rabbit – last night.
