isn't it about time...??




Isn't it about time for SPRING?? The grass is finally green here, but no buds on the trees and it's gray and cold. My tulips are trying to come up...these are what's left of my sun garden. When my stepsons moved in last fall the village put in new sidewalks so the "guys" decided to pour a new sidewalk going to our house. The neighbor who did it for cheap pulled his concrete truck over my garden. Now I have tulips, grass and a rut.

Usually by now I've raked all the leaves off my front yard which is a hosta garden. The dirt that Jim moved there years ago is settling so I need more dirt. I'll add that to my long list of stuff that needs to be done...along with the house being painted (it's half done, weather halted the job in October), the porch needs to be torn off the house and there a number of things I'd like done this spring/summer, but what I want and what the men want...well...we shall see who wins.



The thing with an old house there's always something to do...not this week though. I usually spring clean, but with my surgery I have a good excuse to sit around and do very little.

I did manage lunch with some friends...next week we have a short week for Good Friday (disguised as parent/teacher conferences) and my anniversary is Thursday....a great excuse for my husband and I to leave town. I picked Milwaukee...so that's where we are going, great city, zoo and plenty to do...see I do get my way!

Love Milwaukee. It's definitely under-rated. Have a great trip and anniversary!

I am so ready for spring as well. Things are starting to green, our maple has some buds, and some flowers are poking out :o)

My spring break is just getting started - so much to do, so little time! Thanks for the anniversary reminder. I didn't realize it was so close already. I always seem to forget somehow that we both have the same April fools day anniversary. Just goes to show we (and our husbands) are all a bunch of nuts :-)

We had early days this week for teacher conference and now the boys are off for two weeks... Enjoy your little get away! :)

I know what you mean. There are so many things I want to do this spring. I guess it will depend on time and money (it always does, doesn't it?).
