I have a few things on my mind as I wait for spring to arrive and today I’m sharing what those things are!
Can you hear me over here rapping my fingers as I wait for spring? My heart is really longing for those warmer days when I can hang the laundry on the line again, for the smell of fresh cut grass, for the sweet sound of birds singing their songs, and time spent on the porch swept away reading a good book.
We’ve had a very mild winter this year, which makes me even hungrier for spring. February is always the month that I’m over it all and ready to move on to a new season, new things, and something to actually blog about. It seems like I haven’t changed the house décor in forever and I’m still not ready to do it.
I need to do a good spring cleaning, call the exterminator and have the cabin sprayed for flies outside, and then call my window washer to clean off all the spray the exterminator left behind. Sounds like a vicious cycle huh? My son pointed out a big cobweb hanging from the ceiling fan. I told him the window washer would get it when he comes to clean. So if you come over don’t look up if you don’t want to see it, LOL.
Right now my compost bin is full and froze shut so I’ve been dumping our compost on the snow-covered ground right beside the bin. Well you know what that means; I’m now aiding in fattening up two stray cats and I’ve noticed they’re sheltering under the chicken coop at night. I fear they’ll stick around now that I’ve lured them in. I’ve tired to get close but they’re not the friendly type, YET.
Hubby will have a cow if he finds me trying to tame them. We are animal free right now and we’ve decided at our age we don’t want the responsibility of inside animals anymore. I love having a dog and a cat but it’s much easier to travel when I don’t have to worry about finding someone to take care of pets while were gone.
I’m telling you the older I get I sure do work at making my life simpler that’s for sure. Speaking of simpler did you notice the linen dresses I have hanging on the line? They are some of my favorites and remind me of a simpler time. I put one on along with a cute straw hat and a pair of Mary Jane shoes and feel like it takes me back to the little house on the prairie days. I get looks from people when I wear them; some tell me how cute they are and others just stare but I don’t care I love them!
I wanted you all to know as of January I decided to quit scrolling social media feeds. I still have my accounts I just no longer use them. If you need to get a hold of me, please leave me a message here and I’ll get back to you. I’ve decided it was such a time sucker and I have plenty of other things to do than spend all day on my phone. I love keeping in touch with everyone so I made the choice to limit it to the blog and spend more time with my family. I hope you all understand and still stay in touch with me here from now on! Thanks for being understanding.
