Taste of Spring


Enjoying lots of sunshine and delightful days

temps are in the 40's and in the afternoon have reached the 50's

we've soaked up the sun and enjoyed these delightful February days

a dose of spring to hold us over until it arrives


Awaiting spring with new life

Longing to see this little nest filled with life once again

The snow melts at our feet

I don't even mind the mud

This is all that's left of the snowboarding ramp our son made

He filled the wheelbarrow with snow and wheeled it over

worked on it for ours until it was just perfect

Simple pleasures

Just nice enough to hang the laundry out

One of my favorite things~

nothing smells better than towels hung out to dry



Promises of more snow are ahead

but we will enjoy this preview while we can

I love the looks of laundry on the line!! We're in for a snowy weekend though, so mine is hanging on my Amish indoor clothes dryer...lol

laundry on the line! I can't wait! our snow is melting but it's going to be a looooong time before it's all gone.

You bet one of my favorite things too spring really isn't far off for sure. The sunny days here are uplifting too. It likely will snow again but somehow you can live with it when you know it is almost over.

I love hanging laundry out, but I can't get to my clothsline. We got about 8 inches of heavy wet snow last night. It's good to see I'm not the only one with a bit of Spring Fever.

We enjoyed that nice weekend here too. I even sat in my outside chair and read for an hour with the dogs running around. Alas, more snow on the way. Spring will be so appreciated this year.
