So Lovely

The weather the past few days has been so lovely. I have been able to open the windows, do a little bit of yard work and go on some walks with Hannah.

It is so nice to get fresh air into the house after being cooped up all winter. I cleaned out our fireplace in hopes that Spring is here to stay. Although this weekend had me a bit nervous. At first they were calling for upper 30's (brrr!) and some snow but now they have changed it to lower to mid 40's with just rain on Saturday. That's a bit better. I don't really want to see snow again until November! :o)

I managed to clean up some of our flower beds yesterday afternoon and this morning. I cut back all the dead plants and grasses and tried to get rid of some of the weeds that are already starting to make an appearance. I can't wait to go to the nursery to get some flower and plants. I already have plans to move some plants from our front beds to our back beds and then redo our front. I just want a few more flowers in the front. And then in the back I just need to fill in the bed I made in the fall. We just ran out of time to buy things last year. But our grass in the back is coming in nice. Its green and will hopefully fill in a bit. I'm sure we'll have to plant more grass seed but at least there is some grass back there. Plus, we're hoping to get some trees in, our garden in, Hannah will be getting a sand box and then we are putting up a fence (YAY!). We need a fence and its gotta get done so that is 1 of 2 big projects (or 3 depending on what you consider to be projects *wink*) we will be working on.  :o)

And with the time change and this nicer weather, we have finally been able to get out for some family walks when Nick gets home from work. I missed going on our walks! I told Nick I need to walk my ass off... not in a speed sense of walking my ass off but literally walking until my ass disappears!  :oP But its nice to just spend some outside family time together after being stuck in the house. Sometimes its the little things that put a smile on our face and leaves us going to bed happy! :o)

So, I hope you all have a chance to get outside; whether its to do yard work, go for a walk or just read a book. Enjoy this perfect weather!

    I enjoyed the weather! Might have been at work, but I opened the car windows there and back.


I'd love to hear from you!! :o)
