SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Contributed by Sarah Cook, Publisher. Well, spring is here- my favorite time of year

 

It’s time to put away your heavy jacket, the snow boots, and gloves, and sort through our spring clothes. When the weather changes from cold, and grey to warm and sunny, something changes within everyone around us. No more hibernating, time to get outdoors! Clean up the garden and get to know your neighbours again. For me, Spring cleaning is so ‘cleansing’, time to start fresh. Here are just a few fresh Spring-cleaning ideas;

 
Before it becomes way too nice to stay inside, get a kick start on your spring cleaning. This means clearing out winter clothes, sorting through your spring/summer clothes, and maybe even donating some that just don’t ‘work anymore’ to a local clothing drive. #teamblochclothingdrive
Clean up the garage, dust off your bicycle and fill the tires, perhaps take it in to your local bike shop for a Spring tune up. Even if it is still chilly outside, if the sun is shining and it’s not raining, cycling is a healthy, fun, and social way to get outside.

Bring Spring within and treat yourself to some flowers. Having flowers indoors, before they are blossoming outdoors congers up feelings of anew.

Get the garden ready, clean and sharpen your tools, rake up all the “winter stuff” and get ready to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

· Of course, the biggest Spring clean up of all is mother nature…why not organize a community clean up of your front yard, laneway, or your favorite parkette.
