Autumn is nigh (+autumn cleaning list)September 01, 2015
Finally, yes, I am ready to say goodbye to summer and I am totally ready for autumn. I enjoy the fact the house looks dark inside, rain ticking against the windows, and I can lit candles and incence in the midst of day and feel all cozy -while most people still long for summer- and I also love falling asleep whilst listening to the thunder.
As always on the first of september, I start the big autumn cleaning to get the house autumn-ready. Autumn marks a new beginning, a new season, and the first of every new month, to me, also marks a new beginning, so I think it always nice to start the big cleanings (spring and autumn) on the first of the month.
Not many people love to do the big cleanings, but I enjoy it thoroughly. I stretch it over two or three days, put on great music (this time it's the ethereal music of Faun) and I love the feeling of cleanliness and tidiness when I am done - I also decorate the house autumn-worthy afterwards. That always gets me so cheery and puts me even more in the mood of autumn.
So whilst taking a pause at the moment, I am writing this post and thought it would be a great idea to share the Big Autumn Cleaning List that I am following for this year. Sharing it with those of you who are as crazy as me by liking to have a big autumn cleaning - or with those who don't like it but have one anyway!
