Five Things on Friday

I totally stole this idea from Jessi's Scattered Mind, which is a great blog!!  You should be reading it.  Right now.  Then come back here.  I promise to try to start blogging more!

5 things that means spring is here:

1.  The chirping birds wake me up in the morning.  I love that sound because I know that when I open my eyes there will be daylight and because I know that it will be warm.  I just wish the birds knew when the weekend was!

2.  The dead leaves from winter have totally filled up my little pond.  I can look in the water and see each leaf just below the surface I know spring is here and it's time to clean.  What a lovely job!  I think this year I will try a fish net and just scoop them out by the net full.

3.  It's too hot for the furnace and too cold for the AC. Too hot for sweaters; too cold for short sleeves.  I have no clothes for this time of the year.  I would go shopping, but I've missed this season yet again.  All that is out is sun dresses and short sleeves.  I think I need to shop in January - but then it's too cold to think about spring.

4.  My flowers bloom.  Now please understand that I only have like 7, but I do love those 7.  It's not that I don't want more - I really, really do!  It's not that I don't plant more - just ask my husband!.  It's just that I am very, very lucky if 7 bloom.  I don't know why, but it is what it is.   Of course as soon as those 7 bloom, someone will come running in the house with the lovely bloom clinched in their little hands.  "Look what I picked for you!"

5.  I want to go home!  I don't want to work.  I don't want to shop.  I don't want to go to church.  I just want to go home and enjoy my lovely space.  Oh, wait....that's after spring cleaning and then it will summer and too hot to do anything else......
