Warm January days

Yesterday was a lovely day with temperatures in the 60s.  I threw open my windows and enjoyed the fresh air while I cleaned inside the house.  Mindy has gotten big enough to use the cat door to the basement, so I moved her litter box from our master bathroom to the basement and then used the opportunity to clean our bathroom top to bottom.  (This picture has nothing to do with my cleaning kick, but it is a cute picture of Mindy.)

While I was busy with that, David wanted a job, too, so I sent him outside with a bucket of hot water and PineSol and a sponge to clean the mildew off of the porch swing (a normal occurrence here in the's just something we live with, and it's worth it for our beautiful January weather!).  He got really wet...

...and was thrilled to have an excuse to strip down to minimal clothing.  That's my hot-bodied boy!

(Incidentally, he did a great job on the swing; now we can sit in it again and enjoy the beautiful weather!)

Great job, David! I will appreciate it on my next visit!

Sitting on a porch swing sounds really nice to me right about now!

Some of our porch furniture stays out all winter...and it's got snow on it at the moment. Brrrr!
