Getting ready for opening day

April 9, 2012 – Well – we started Spring cleaning at the Log Cabin on Saturday.  And I have a new appreciation for how difficult keeping clean and tidy must have been when the cabin was built in 1914.  While there is plenty of water there was unfortunately no HOT water.  So buckets were found and filled and driven back and forth, filled and emptied, filled and emptied.   It is almost impossible to get anything really clean with cold water no matter how hard you try. 

We swept, and vacuumed, dusted and polished, moved all the furniture, took down the curtains so they could be taken away and washed.   Cleaned out the gutters, cleaned the windows inside and out. 

 

We got about half way before time and energy ran out and will have to go back to finish upstairs – where the water will not only have to be brought in but be brought up! 

 

But the downstairs sparkles and the windows shine in anticipation of the opening the first weekend in May. Be sure to mark your calendars for May 5 and 6 to come to the opening, see our bright and shiny space, and hear the news from 1912.  You can start reading about it in Letters to Anna in this quarter's newsletter.
