<<>> This morning after I dropped ds at school, I was in my drive way giving my Suburban the once over----at 8:30AM! My neighbor must think I'm a lunatic---oh, yeah, I am a little nuts! Then I knocked out the back of the house. I planted three flower beds, moved the summer furniture outside and cleaned it up. I moved my strawberries to a better location. I also dug and graded the soil for the kids new sand box. I'm tired of them hovering over that tiny little turle. I got some lumber, weed mesh tarp and a load of sand. They now have an area 8ftx6ft next to their play house.

It looks nice back there! All before noon when I had to pick ds up from school too! LOL I was flying around getting things done so we could enjoy it this afternoon before it got too hot. I planted some zinna's, green beans and tomatoes in addition to some new annuals for boarders.

I have the sprinklers going now. It looks so peaceful. dh's roses are going to be beautiful this year. And my iris's keep blooming---I had blooms for xmas---how wierd is that?

Oh, and I made some sun tea, what to come over?

Kimberly, I'd love to come over...and get away from this 30-degree snowy weather! Sounds like you had a most productive day, what an inspiration to read! Thanks for the little pick-me-up, maybe tomorrow I'll clean...inside, of course! :)

well, I'm very jealous. I am so anxious for Spring and now that made me even more anxious! :) I'm excited because its going to be 52 tomorrow for the St. Patricks day parade here in Iowa. Last year I think we had snow for it.

I am also jealous at how ambitious you are Kim. Wow! I'm impressed at all you did in a day! You give me inspiration! I need to do a little Spring cleaning this weekend. I wish I was planting flowers though, but that will have to wait a while.
Thanks for that little boost I needed! Just makes you want to say "Thank you Lord for this beautiful day! doesn't it?
