spring forward

I love spring.  Not as much as fall, mind you, but still.  I like the cool/hot weather that can never seem to make up its mind.  I like seeing flowers bloom – what an awesome reminder of new life and rebirth.  But most of all, I love that it’s the kick off of Yard Work Season.


Yes, you read that right.  What I love most about spring is that it gives me the opportunity to work with my hands.  Nothing says a hard days work like a day pulling weeds and shoveling mulch.  Mowing the lawn (while it’s hard work) is INSTANT gratification – and who doesn’t love that?


We’ve already had 4 humming birds grace our kitchen window.  The daffodils that Grandma sent last fall are in full bloom.  I keep finding lots of awesome big rocks to include in our flower bed.  We bought a lawn mower (FINALLY!  Thanks to the Watts and Schroeders for letting us borrow theirs all last season) and a weed-whacker.  Man, that thing is much more powerful than I expected…I LIKE it!  But we’ve got one super springy problem…


I’ve pulled them, I’ve sprayed them, I’ve cursed their very existence, and I still can’t seem to rid our yard of weeds.  HELP!  Seriously, help.  It seems like no matter what I do, they come right back.


But that won’t stop me from tryin’!
