Is it just me?  It seems like it is much colder this year than it was last year at this time.  On top of that, it seems like the rain will never end!  I don't know about you, but I have had enough of the coldness of winter, and I can't wait for the warm spring air to come!  To me, when I think about spring, I think of Easter, cleaning, and flowers.  In my country, when Spring comes, people like to open their windows and do a major cleaning in their homes.  We call it "spring cleaning".    It is a good feeling to let in the fresh, cool air and get out all the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the winter.  Many people think of doing heavy cleaning in the spring, but of course, it can be done anytime. So, whenever someone does a lot of cleaning in their home or office, even though it may be July, or December, people sometimes still say it is "Spring Cleaning".  As soon as this rain stops, and it warms up a bit, it will be time for me to do mine!
