... the tradition of thoroughly cleaning a house in the Springtime. Depending on which version speaks to you, it is said Spring Cleaning has it's origins in the religious traditions of getting ready for Passover or alternatively, it is simply a tradition, typically followed by those living in colder climates, who with the arrival of warmer weather, welcome the ability to open the doors and clean away the detritus of winter.
In our household, since we both hate housework, there is no big ritual or undertaking here to observe the arrival of Spring by cleaning house.
However, it is a time when we consider chores such as window cleaning, deck sweeping, shooing the spiders back outside (did you know spiders come indoors in the Fall, looking for love :>)) ... and the outdoor Spring requirements of looking after over an acre of property.
This year, I am undertaking a Spring Cleaning of the metaphorical kind ... a cleaning of the cobwebs of my mind. Unlike the last two years, where I had the excitement of sexual and relationship revolutions to carry me through into Spring, this year that excitement is missing - I have been hit with the Winter blues yet again ... Frank has been hit with Shingles (get your vaccinations folks!) ... and between the two of us it's been a quiet transition into March.
However, as of this week, I have decided I can't always rely on Frank to make it better - the last spanking session we had hardly registered - well it registered on my ass and I have the marks to prove it but it did nothing for my mind :>) ... I have decided I need to take some responsibility for my emotional well being. I've started by going back to revisit some of my old self motivational audio files, undertaking some new mindful meditation exercises (that *&^%ing Lola Libido better get her ass back from whatever sunny climes vacation she's been on!) and working hard at finding my submissive self ... yup, it's time for Spring Cleaning, nj style!
Hope the 'almost upon us' advent of Spring has you excited about new paths ... and some spanky fun in the sun!
thanks for dropping by! ... nj and Frank
