Ah, it’s almost spring. The days are getting longer and warmer. If you’re thinking of a deep clean, you may be inspired by this French quotation: Ce qui est fait n’est plus à faire (suh key eh feh neh ploose ah fare). It literally means “That which is done is no longer to be done,” but it’s very similar to the English expression “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”
I generally do a stem to stern cleaning right before I head back to school in September. I am, however, planning to call a professional window cleaning service. We have a few windows that are much too high and dangerous for us to clean them safely. There’s nothing like the sun streaming in to make it feel like spring. But let’s return to that French saying, for a minute. When it comes to housework, that which is done has to be done over and over and over again. C’est la vie.
