Spring seems to have sprung. All the spring flowers are beginning to bloom, the lilacs are budding, the birds are singing so cheerfully from all the trees around our house, and the spring peepers are serenading us at night. We're still having a lot of cloudy, overcast, and foggy days, but I'm enjoying all the little signs that brighter days are coming.
I can't remember how the weather was at the beginning of March, but yesterday was mild, cloudy, with occasional drizzle.
(Drizzle sounds so much prettier when you're talking about the icing on cinnamon rolls instead of describing the weather.)
2. The last thing that caused you to spring to your feet?
The last time I had to spring to my feet was when the smoke alarm went off while we were eating. That thing is so loud, and did a fine job of scaring me! No fire ... but at least we know the alarm still has the ability to work.
3. Do you have a spring clean to-do list? What's one chore on the list you've already managed to accomplish? What spring clean chore do you most dread?
We do spring house cleaning every year. I have been able to check off a few things already. The one I'm the happiest about having done already is shampooing all the carpeting on the main floor.
(Let it be known, if I were ever to build a house there would be no carpeted floors!)
4. Tell us something you've learned about yourself or the wider world as a result of social distancing/the virus crisis.
I have learned that I'm possibly not quite as much of an introvert as I thought I was.
5. Something you love that's the color pink?
I love Impatiens. I always fill our flowerbed under the big tree here in front of our house with Impatiens in shades of pinks.
I'm hoping I'll be able to visit the local greenhouses in early May to get the flowers I need. otherwise we may have empty flowerbeds this year.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I once again signed up to do the April A-Z blogging challenge. You can find my first post for it just before this one.
There's no set theme I'll be adhering to, to get me through the alphabet this year. I'll simply be sharing a mixture of memories, recipes, thoughts, present happenings, and what ever else might correspond with the letter of the day.
You're welcome to keep checking back to see if I'm able to successfully keep up and complete my goal.
