The best thing about hibernating inside during a cold and snowy winter is getting a head start on all the spring-cleaning that needs to be done. In the last few weeks, I’ve gone through closets and weeded out old clothes, sorted through papers dating back twenty years, and cleared out books that were very much loved but needed a new home. Not only did I free up space with all the de-cluttering, but I had a great sense of satisfaction doing it. And the best thing about spring-cleaning is the chance to recycle and donate the stuff to a good cause. Our local symphony hosts a big book sale each year to raise money, so I dropped off five bags of books for them. Another bag of books went to a neighbourhood drugstore that raises money for children’s charities. A drama company took a bin and four bolts of fabric that I had lying around and had given up hope of ever using. It’ll be put to good use for costumes and props. Charities for cerebral palsy and diabetes will get the bags of clothes and household items. As a result very little was actually thrown out. It was a win-win all round! Now when spring finally gets here, and I want to be outdoors, the spring-cleaning will all be done!
If you’d prefer to hibernate with a fun romantic comedy, you might enjoy Perfectly Honest. 😀

When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s ‘fiancée’ for a weekend, she probably should have told him that she’s a doctor. Sam O’Brien, aka ‘Dr. Eye Candy’, is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his ‘fiancée’ helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his ‘fiancée’ ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted. Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!
Linda O’Connor started writing a few years ago when she needed a creative outlet other than subtly rearranging the displays at the local home décor store. It turns out she loves writing romantic comedies and has a few more stories to tell. When not writing, she’s a physician at an Urgent Care Clinic (well, even when she is writing she’s a physician, and it shows up in her stories 😀 ). She hangs out at http://www.lindaoconnor.net. Laugh every day. Love every minute.
