Spring !!!!

I LOVE spring !!!!

The sun shines more and brighter,

the breeze is cleaner and warmer,

temperatures rise above freezing :)

I get to get my hands dirty . . .

Honey Do tilled the vegetable garden Sunday afternoon.

The layout has been put to paper and Tuesday afternoon, I used the garden rake and straightened it out - sort of. It will be an on-going process as I plant my seeds and plants. It's a lot of work and more often than not I debate about whether or not it's worth the effort. But in the end I always decide that it is.

So I spent my day off - Wednesday - working in the garden and generally catching up my chores.
I wasn't feeling well last week, and to be honest, I'm still not over whatever bug had gotten hold of me but I've decided a week is more than long enough and I need to get up and get busy. The weather is also cooperating because it's been warm and sunny since the weekend.

My commitment for Bible Study and the children's program will be finished for the year in three weeks. That will free up two more days of the week when I can just stay home and get things done.
I continue to work on the indoor painting. The bathroom ceiling is on the agenda for this week - priming and painting.


These are a couple of the garments I saw at the quilt show at the beginning of the month. 
They serve to remind me how much I have missed sewing and stitching since it's having to take a back seat during the interior renovations of my home. I'm not sorry with my choices, just missing what I love doing. Aren't they beautiful?

Rocky has thoroughly enjoyed this warmer weather, so much so that it's almost impossible to keep him in the house :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you bushels of blessings.

You've been busy with many things, all needing to be done. I hope you are feeling better by now. I can't remember when I saw laundry hanging outside like that, but it brings back my childhood. I don't think anyone here in my area even has a clothesline. Isn't that odd? It would be so helpful for airing out the quilts before putting most of them away for the summer.

I love spring too!!!! Buds everywhere, songbirds, sunshine - what a relief every year, after the gloominess and chill of winter. I don't garden, but will enjoy watching yours come along! Love those garments from the show, I wish I could make garments but I'm genetically incapable. I hope you feel back to 100% soon, hon, and that you can get Rocky indoors now and then, lol!
