|You Are a Blue Flower|
At times, you are very delicate like a cornflower.
And at other times, you are wise like an iris.
And more than you wish, you're a little cold, like a blue hydrangea.
You know its Spring when..
You can open up all the windows and air out the house
Allergies kick in and you can't breath threw your noise
When the grass starts to turn from that ugly brown to new green
When the trees start to bud
When you would rather sit out side with a good book instead of in front of the Big Screen TV playing Ratchet And Clank on PS2
And you really, really, NO- I MEAN REALLY, know it's finally Spring when that Hoosier on your street (ahem) takes down the rest of the Christmas decorations!!!!!!!!! LMBO
YES, that Hoosier (and if you live in MO you know that is not a basketball player) is my husband.. he finally, after much begging and nagging from me and my friends and I am sure to my neighbors delight, took down our Christmas Lights. When he started calling them Easter Lights he knew it was time. What really took him so long was it became a battle of the wills between him and me. Every time I would ask him to do it over the last three months, he would hunker down like a strong willed child and refuse or make excuses. Eventually it became a joke between us.. a game. *shaking head* If it is going to be like that every year.. I may not have him put them up at all.. I'll have to remember that this coming Christmas.
The weather this week has just been beautiful.. it almost got into the 80's today. After the kids got home and homework was finished we all went out side and enjoyed some play. The kids are getting really good at riding their bikes.. aww it is so nice to live on a street where they can ride on. Lilly has the training wheels off and Sophia needs a new bigger bike. Josh and I got out patio chairs and watched them have fun. I started reading a book Zane had just finished and recommend, The Westing Game. Very good book and I giggle at how it is set in Wisconsin and somewhat dated by the description of what was so in for a luxury apartment building.. haha, shag carpets 3 inches. It has good twists and turns, a murder mystery, a who done it but not gory. I may do an entry later on it and a review of the other books I have read lately.
I am glad Spring is sprung and am looking forward to sprucing up the yard when we have extra (when ever that may be) money to do it. After Josh was finished taking down the lights, I pulled off some of the old dead growth from the plants in front and wrinkled my noise at the decaying, discolored mulch beds. Next to fertilizing the lawn,replacing that mulch is going to be a top priority. Then maybe we can do something about rose bushes for the side of the house.
While out and about I did get to meet some of our neighbors. I admit it.. when it is winter I am a total recluse.. and they even commented about never seeing me out lol.. well ya.. I have that big screen tv now and PS2! I know.. tisk.. tisk. But now that the ice is broken I may actually get to know the ppl who live on my street. I am just so used to being the only ones here but I always knew that would change. Still, I think I will miss the quietness and seclusion just a wee bit. Two new houses are going up right next to us and then this side of the subdivision will be done until they start phase 3. And may I say.. I STILL have the biggest house on the street *hehe* *cough* not that matters or has to do with anything what so ever.. no that is not prides ugly head..just saying.. wow.. <feeling blessed>
