I love spring.Â Not as much as fall, mind you, but still.Â I like the cool/hot weather that can never seem to make up its mind.Â I like seeing flowers bloom – what an awesome reminder of new life and rebirth.Â But most of all, I love that it’s the kick off of Yard Work Season.
Yes, you read that right.Â What I love most about spring is that it gives me the opportunity to work with my hands.Â Nothing says a hard days work like a day pulling weeds and shoveling mulch.Â 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.Â The daffodils that Grandma sent last fall are in full bloom.Â I keep finding lots of awesome big rocks to include in our flower bed.Â We bought a lawn mower (FINALLY!Â Thanks to the Watts and Schroeders for letting us borrow theirs all last season) and a weed-whacker.Â Man, that thing is much more powerful than I expected…I LIKE it!Â 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.Â HELP!Â Seriously, help.Â It seems like no matter what I do, they come right back.
But that won’t stop me from tryin’!
