Where Little Pieces Hide

I rolled up my sleeves and the living room rug this morning. Whew! I think I found every marble and bit-o-plastic in the house, along with a handsome collection of dust bunnies.

What I didn't find was more than 2 cents worth of loose change. This tells me that my son's money jar experiment is a success!

After moving all the furniture, I swept and mopped. I folded the rug in fourths and vacuumed its underside as I went.

Now I will get my vintage Electrolux floor buffer ($5 at yard sale) and shine up the wood floors before putting everything back in order.

Thanks to the lovely March sunshine, it feels great to tackle some spring cleaning.

Okay, I have to ask: what is that brown thing next to the window?

That does look funny out of context! It's the long drapery panel, temporarily knotted to keep it off the floor while I mop.
