Spring Cleaning

Can you see how desperate I am for spring? In the interest of trying to coax in the next season, I thought I would clean up around here, open the windows, air out the rooms, sweep out the corners and redecorate a bit.

Granted, we still have snow in the corners of my backyard, snow that has been there since Thanksgiving, I'm sure. However, this morning I saw a couple of little johnny-jump-ups showing their faces in my front garden. I think they must be praying for warmer days and sunshine, too! I know it's still the end of February, but in a couple of days it will be March -- in like a lion, but just that much closer to the season of the lamb:)

I am desperate for Spring too even though we did not get anyway near the amount of snow that yall did. The Spring Reading Challenge starts in three weeks which makes me happy. :)

Great idea about the Spring Cleaning. Goodness knows, I need to do it! And I'm also desperate to see Spring again. Johnny Jump-ups? No fair! :) -Tammy

I think there are a lot of bloggers wishing for warmer weather these days. I may even be one of them. But I'm not saying since I spent so many years in FL where warm weather is exhausting.

Oh, I'm looking forward to having time to spring clean sometime... sometime, that is...!

We need to do this too but still a little too cool to open up the house yet.
But soon.

I like the new look here, the colors are very soothing, with a calm feel. We had snow showers yesterday, and are in the 30s today and tomorrow, so winter's still holding on. Hopefully March winds will usher in Spring soon!

We'll all appreciate the season of the lamb!
Hope you get a lot accomplished.

I heard birds chirpping outside my window this afternoon. I looked out and saw several flying around. There are no other signs of spring. No grass, no leaves on the trees, but the birds are here, a sure sing that spring is on its way. I think we could all use a little more sunshine right about now! I like your "jazzed up" blog. I'm going to spend a little more time looking it over!

HI KAREN,

I ALSO STARTED SPRING CLEANING, WE THINK A LIKE. HAVEN'T POSTED IN A WHILE, I'M READY TO POST SPRING MYSELF. I WANT SPRING SO BAD, I KEEP LOOKING FOR ANY KIND OF BUDS, EVEN A LITTLE CROCUS, BUT NOTHING YET. LILLY IS STARTING TO GROW, SHE IS ADORABLE. WELL, TAKE CARE. LOVE, AUNT RIZ

We've had a colder winter than normal, but spring will be here (down South) very soon. My trees and my neighbors trees are all starting to bud out. Yesterday was cold for us (like 40ยบ), but by the weekend, we'll be near 70. Mostly, I just like the sunshine... the days that are cloudy and grey, no matter the temp, are hardest to get through :)

Hope you have a beautiful day!
