I've already done a quick tidy to the house this morning. Though it's relatively warm here, we have gray skies and rain is expected today so no yard work can be done. Instead, I plan to spend the next few hours baking.
Since I began working, I've baked maybe twice. My kids sure do miss it. I plan to make brownies, homemade granola bars and banana bread - one loaf will go to my sister for her birthday in lieu of a gift.
Another thing: we've been working on a 1,000 piece puzzle in the evenings after dinner. It is slow going and sometimes frustrating, but we are making progress!
I love it because we are spending time together - even Alfred gets involved. We talk and laugh and celebrate each piece we add to the puzzle.
I've been looking up inexpensive crafty ideas for the girls. There are so many cool ideas on Pinterest. Here is my Teen Crafts board.
I don't know about where you live, but around here people are already flocking to the nurseries and home improvement stores for gardening supplies and plants. It is not unusual to hear lawnmowers now. Spring is most assuredly on it's way!
We will still get cold snaps here and there, but I am enjoying the warmer days and sunshine with windows flung open wide. It's been so refreshing to sleep comfortably (for now) with the windows open at night.
We have so much work do in the yard. I am going to do what I can on my off days and Alfred will do more on the weekends when he's off (I usually have to work weekends). But bit by bit we will get it done.
What garden plans do you have for this year?
