I did sow tomato seeds in their peat pellets a little early because I couldn't resist, but I didn't succumb to the urge to throw the house wide open. I did clean up all the wood bits on the floor, but left the firewood exactly where it is next to the woodstove. I took the curtain closing off the hall down but left the plastic closing off the cold part of the house hanging where it is. I took three of the plastic storm windows down but left most of them up. I took many of my winter clothes upstairs and brought down some of my summer clothes, but left a core of warm clothing easily accessible, including wool socks. I'll be ready when old man winter comes back. Depressed, but ready.
