Welcome the month of March...




Today is just a gorgeous day! The sun is shining brightly and the sky is a lovely shade of blue. There is a nip in the air, and the winds are back. I can here my windchimes in the yard, as the wind is whipping them around.


I am to get my hair cut this afternoon, then off to Target to get supplies for the house. I always enjoy leisurely walking through that store, and will stop to purchase a bouquet of flowers too. My roses are already getting new growth, from the cutting back of the Autumn season! They look so healthy and I'm looking forward to some beautiful blossoms in a few months!


I've been a busy girl this week with continued cleaning, rearranging, and de-cluttering. My kids caught it too, as they purged there own closets and drawers, and cleaned their rooms...they even went out and purchased some new bedding!!


Hubby will be working all day today, and having to go back at 11pm tonight to work through till tomorrow. He won't be coming home but rather staying with a friend instead.


We have very high ceilings in our home downstairs, and with that comes ledges over the doorways, that need cleaning and sprucing up badly! In order to do this I have to get the ladder and go up at least 15 feet...yikes...so I'm thinking this may be a job for the youngest to do, or at least help me with it!


I've changed my blog a little to welcome in the month of March! Spring is just around the corner, and while I'm looking forward to it, I'm always very content with the here and now. This afternoon I want to pull some weeds in the flower beds, and sweep the patio, and rake the yard too. Just to tidy up the patio and rearrange a little to freshen that area up, because you can see it from our family room as we have a sliding glass door that leads right out to the patio. I would love to look for some new cushions for our wicker patio set...something that looks vintage and not the bold colors I'm so used to seeing...more muted shades of florals.


Well time to close for now and continue to move through the course of the day. I pray that you have a Happy Friday, and a peaceful weekend with loved ones! Blessings always....

Your day sounds just lovely, MIndy. We've been having warm days too and I worked out in the garden a bit this afternoon, it felt great! It sounds like you are spring cleaning at your house! Have a wonderful weekend!

I love the spring time of the year. Time to open the door, raise the windows, plant, paint and enjoy the out of doors. Oh, yes, and cleaning, cleaning and with all the light coming in, it should be lots of fun. Connie from Texas

"I'm always very content with the here and now" how rich you are to live this way. I strive for it myself...smile. I like to shop through Target too. I like thier lavender cleaning spray..'Method' they call it.

I can hardly wait for Spring! Sounds you will have a fun day, wish I wasn't at work.

Even spring cleaning is better than being couped up in my office.

It's looking like rain this evening and I just washed my windows *sigh*...
Wanted to come by and say hi and wish you a blessed week ahead!

Spring seems to bring fresh starts and that tidying instinct doesn't it?
