The World Is Awake

spring

It may only be 53 degrees right now, but even Maine is waking up from the horrible winter of 2014. I noticed yesterday that most of the trees have these funny green things sprouting off of them. My lilac bush/tree/monster in my back yard has had buds for quite some time but now the rest of the forest is getting in on the act.

I saw five tulips in bloom in the mini garden too. They’re yellow and they are gorgeous.  I can’t remember a time when I was happier to see signs of spring. I thought this past winter might kill me off.

I’m waking up too – I do have a lot of raw enthusiasm most of the time, but not in the dead of winter. With the help of DS, I’ve moved all the living room furniture and swept behind everything. I’ve cleaned every floor, surface, etc. I can reach. I still have mountains of clothes and stuff to take to Good Will. DH is down to wearing sweat pants and t-shirts so all the clothes he’s accumulated over many, many years can go. Likewise with several good pairs of shoes and boots.

I still have to clean out the refrigerator. God I hate that job. Partial jars of stuff all over and some stuff I’d forgotten. Messy. Soon that too will be done.

We figure we have at least 6, maybe 7 months until it snows again – I intend to be outside for all of it.

    You sure have been busy. I like the idea that you are getting it all done now so you can spend all of the warm days outside.
