Enough said, right? No way! Never enough good things can be said about this time of year.  It is completely worth the swollen eyes, runny nose and constant sneezing just to feel the warm sun on my shoulders again, and a cool breeze through my hair.  Time to dig and plant and grow and watch.  So much to look forward to.

My garden area is prepped and planted thanks to a friend that recommended a book on square foot gardening.  Living in the Burbs has it’s downfalls as I have a extremely limited growing area.  But, it didn’t stop me from planting a bunch of seeds I’ve never grown before, so we’ll see how those turn out. Even drew up a garden layout (really, I’m that bad about listing stuff!) so I can reference back when the seedlings start to come up.  I’m a gardening goof. I can’t help it.

More on that LATER!!   I swear! Cross my heart and everything…

Now my new question is why are there always  nagging feelings to scrub down everything this time of year. I’m cleaning the room fans??? I’m vacuuming under and behind the couch??? And don’t forget those dust bunnies under the refrigerator.  What the heck is up with that?  Sorry, I didn’t mean to get all Seinfeld on you. I just wonder if there was some scientific reason why people, (I know I’m not alone!) feel this urge every year.  I don’t have the world’s dirtiest house… or for that matter the cleanest, but this is above and beyond my normal day to day whipping the house into shape.  Oh, what I would give for some indentured servants right now.  Totally voluntary of course.  The kids aren’t quite old enough to order around… yet. (insert maniacal laugh here)

Ah…there’s something wonderful about Spring. Heehee!
