Spring Cleaning

We are cleaning up around here. Passover begins tonight and we have to get the chametz(pronounced home-itz) out.
Do you know what that is?
Well, the crumbs of leavened bread, of course. It is time to clean the corners, all the cupboards, every nook and cranny, scrubbing and airing out. After that I'm going to smudge the place, just to mix all my religious metaphors and kill all my demons at once.

I am going to do a little virtual cleaning up as well. It is time for me to lose the orange hat. I have been wearing it for years now but it's spring, my world is warming up and it is time for it to go. That was never a picture I intended to keep anyway, it was one I took myself with my little webcam and I didn't like all the ones that were straight on. This weekend my daughter and son did me the honors of taking some new ones. My son held the camera while my daughter made faces in the background. And that is the new leaf that I want to turn in blogging, the group effort. And the way you all make faces makes me smile.
