Spring favorites


The arrival of Spring gives me so many favorites for the week.   Here are five:

1.  Spring babies.  .  .  I love seeing all the baby cows out in pastures this time of year.  They look so peaceful all nestled up to their moms, without a care or concern in the world.  And some friends of ours have lambs due in just a couple weeks.  I can't wait to go over and see their sweet little faces.

2.  Longer days and warmer temps.  It's so nice to finish up the day's work and still have some daylight left to linger on the back porch and have a glass of wine or a cold beer. 

3.  Driving with the sunroof open.  I'm half-way there to my convertible (some day:)) but the open sunroof is such a treat!

4.  Daffodils.  At just $1.25 a bunch, I bought three bunches from the grocery store.  They brighten up the kitchen and my days.

5.  Grilling recipes.  Looking forward to warmer days and changing up my menu plan to include recipes for the grill.  It's a nice break to plan menus by the season.  Keeps life interesting.

How was your week?

Oh I am looking forward to grilling soon! Can't wait.

I would have bought daffodils too - I love their cheery color.

I love the longer days as well and riding in an open convertible sounds wonderful!

I have officially adopted your favorite five as my own. Perfect.
Have a wonderful weekend Karen.

I've already bought steaks in anticipation of grilling. And then it snowed. LOL.

Yay for sunroofs! I've had mine open once or twice too until it snowed.

I love spring and summer too. But I had to comment on the sunroof vs convertible. I've had both. Convertible is fun but you will use a sunroof much more. At least I do. It's so much easier to open or close a sunroof as you drive down the street and you don't have to worry about things blowing out or unwanted foreign objects coming in.
