Spring is Here!
I hope you had a great Easter! My new ham and cake recipe were awesome! The ham smelled so good while it was baking and tasted delicious. The cake was perfect: pretty, delicious, and low fat!
Spring is finally here! Warm sunny days, thunderstorms, and greenery everywhere you can see. Some of the flowering trees are beautiful this year! I am spending the rest of this month cleaning out my closets and garage for the huge garage sale our subdivision will be having the first weekend of May and cleaning up the yard.
It is so hard to decide what to keep and what to discard. I can only do a little every day because I have found that I am emotionally attached to some of my “stuff”. A lot of my things bring back memories of when the kids were little. I have to be really tough about getting rid of things and only have the emotional fortitude to do a little at a time. It’s going to take awhile. I’m trying to do a little spring cleaning at the same time.
My husband and I are going to start cleaning up the yard this weekend. It is supposed to be a beautiful, sunny weekend and we’re hoping to get it all done. The grass looks like a jungle. We’ve had a lot of rain lately and the grass is really long and there are lots of pesky weeds already that need to be pulled. I highly recommend Preen for weed control. You can sprinkle it among your flower beds and mulched areas and weeds will not sprout. It doesn’t hurt your flowers. Preen saves you a lot work. I used it last year and I think it is a wonderful product.
There is a lot of work to be done this time of year: cleaning, gardening, mowing, weeding, getting out the window screens and lawn furniture, washing the window, etc. There are also a lot of things to enjoy: eating lunch outside in the warm sun, a long scenic walk, playing golf or watching a baseball game, eating fresh strawberries. We love these warm spring days!
