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.
