But, it is rainy and bleak and a good day for ducks – but not for pictures. I did, however, come across this older picture of our bedding. Just to refresh your memory. You can see where the idea of purple came from…and you can barely see the highlights of grey. You can also see the ugly builder beige/whatever color that used to be on the walls.
Since I was not able to get the pictures – I decided to stick with my Friday’s Favorite Five post…and talk some more about spring. Maybe I can just WISH it here. There are so many things to LOVE about spring: sun tea, pedicures and flip flops (or sandals…I am a sandals girl myself), putting away the winter gear and cleaning out the coat closet and just opening the house up! I love that. Here are five more of my favorite things to look forward to this spring:
I love the sun staying out longer than five o’clock. When the sun sets so early, I feel tired. All the time.
Just the other day, I was on my way home from work – and the sun was right in my eyes – which wasn’t terribly comfortable but, at least, it was still up and it wasn’t dark outside!
Our dog walks lately have been more like mad dashes – out and in as quickly as possible. I know the dogs will enjoy actual walks…and, who knows, I might even get some exercise and not notice it!
THREE: Easter! I love this holiday. I have SO many wonderful memories from Easter – from my own childhood…as far back as I can remember….and through all the Easters with my own children. Easter also reminds me of my parents. We always spent the holiday with them. We had the best times.
Remember this photo I shared last year of the kiddos in their new Easter duds from their Mimi? What cutie-patooties!!
FOUR: Flowers – and working in the yard. Goodness, everything looks so bleak right now. I am just itching to get in the flower beds and work with the porch pots. I’m not a gardener by any stretch of the imagination but I love to get a color around the yard. I’ll be happy just for the grass to turn green again.
Hard to believe these blooms were in our backyard last year. Let’s hope they come back:)
And, FIVE: My Jordan’s birthday! Usually right around Easter – but Easter is incredible late this year…did you notice? So, Jordan’s birthday will be a couple weeks before Easter this year – and he turns 21!! How can that be??
I am so proud of this young man – he just has no idea!??! We will have to plan something really special in order to celebrate:)
Well, that’s get me started – what about you? What are looking forward to this spring??
