It's a beautiful day in the neigHBORHOOD....

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, It's a beautiful day for a neighbor, won't you be, please won't you be, won't you be my neighbor!!!! As you can tell I am feeling silly. Today is gorgeous. Nice and sunny. Tad bit cooler than yesterday, but still nice. Have I ever told you how much I love spring. Such a time of renewal. I love to sit in the yard and bird watch. I love watching the squirrels play. going to my mom's, who lives on the lake and watching the baby duckling strut around, watching the baby rabbits emerge from their burrows. I love watching the trees bud and flowers grows. Speaking of flowers, Dana will be planting her very first flowers this weekend. I am sooooo excited. Dh cut the grass and put down some weed kill, we had a million dandelions, or as Jaree refers YELLOW FLOWERS....why did we all think that dandelions were little flowers....LOL I know I did!

Today, I am getting out an enjoying nature. Taking a midday walk around the neighborhood. Hanging out in the yard. Taking deep breaths. I love the smells of spring! I just love it.

When I was a child I used to love how the clothes smelled at spring time, when my grandmother hung the clothes on the line. They smelled so heavenly.

Lots of things planned this spring! We are going to the zoo, the botanical garden, and to Indiana Dunes....
Should be fun!


My mom is gone, bohoooo. She went to Memphis to visit her TWIN BROTHER. Hey Adrienne, my mom has a twin brother too. He's undergoing knee replacement surgery. They are sooo close. When my mom had her surgery on her colon to remove a cancerous cyst, he was right there. A funny story goes along with this... if you can believe it. We were all in the waiting room, scared as all get out. I sat next to uncle Maurice (my mom's twin) and we were talking about 15 minutes later, he leaned his head way back and just went to sleep. My aunt Carrie, his wife said, Theresa (my mom) must be under. It was scary, he just went to sleep that fast. Then he woke up and aunt Carrie said, Theresa is woke. 15 minutes later, the doctors cam out to tell us my mom is in recovery and she's been up now for about 15 minutes. Is that crazy or what? My uncle got into a bad motorcycle accident, and my mom went to stand up and fell, she couldn't put any pressure on her leg, I was a little girl. I was crying, because she said, I can't walk, something happened to Maurice and it's bad. He broke his leg in 6 places. They always feel each other's pain. IT's crazy.

I miss my mom already. We normally talk everyday! So this week is going to be a little hard for me...... I know. I am such a big baby. LOL Hoping the time flies by....LOL

Well I gotta clean my room, it looks like a hurricane, tornado, tsunami, and earthquake hit it. Seriously. I can't stand it anymore so I am going to clean it.. Dh is such a slob....LOL But, I love him anyway.

Hope all of you are doing well...

Until next time..

living here in the US - I really miss hanging my clothes out on the line like I did in NZ! You are right - there is nothing like the smell of freshly *outside* dried clothes

I love spring too. For all the reasons you described. Well, except the squirrels. I don't like squirrels. And my grandma used to dry all her clothes outside and I loved that smell to. And running around and through the clothes!
