Well, it seems that spring break and motherhood have conspired to draw me away from my little blog. We have been spring cleaning with fervor here at Henneke farm. The mud, as you can imagine, is epic this time of year.
I began scrubbing the back deck only to find that it was like scooping sand from the Kalahari. There was just so.much.mud. I began with a paint scraper, yes, a paint scraper. Then I was able to sweep up clumps and dust. Next, I advanced to hot water and cleaning solution scrubbed on with a broom. Finally, my girls were given the task of bucket brigade with hot water for rinsing away soap and mud. Then came the water hose to complete the task.
Two hours later we could stand back and admire our work. We were proud of our accomplishment and the deck really looked wonderful. If it hadn’t cooled off that evening we could have had dinner alfresco.
Spring time is not without a bit of humor….today it rained. So my deck gets a second washing!
