What A Weekend!

Oh, the weather was beautiful last weekend.  We finally had a chance to spend a little bit of time outside.  Just when I thought my Snow Drops weren't going to bloom this year, they appeared.  It's so nice to see little yellow, purple and white flowers popping up. The tulips and daffodils are about 4" tall now.  I can't wait for them to bloom.  Even the day lillies are are poking through.  Ahhhhh - Spring will come.

We opened the doors and windows and let the house air out on Sunday.  It was 70 and just gorgeous.  Spent the day spring cleaning.  I still have lots to do, but it sure feels good to have the windows shined, a closet or two cleaned out, and the refrigerator cleaned from top to bottom.  I got all of the bedding washed and dried.  Is there anything better than sleeping in a freshly made bed?  I just love the Egyptian Cotton sheets.  They are so soft!

We have a huge To Do list for outside too.  We need to powerwash the house, wash the windows, powerwash and seal all three decks, put new mulch in all of the flower beds and the front yard, get the garden ready to plant, and clean up the patio furniture and grill.  That should use up a weekend or three or four . . .  We love to do this stuff, but it's just hard to find time to get it all done.
