Spring Leads to Summer

The blog carnival topic choices this time are: "Spring and what I look forward to" OR "Month 3. We are already on March!! What have you accomplished this year in real life or on Etsy?? Have you followed your New Year's resolutions? What are your plans for the rest of 2009?"

I don't really want to write about not meeting my own expecatations for the new year, so instead I choose topic #2.
With the coming of spring, I'm looking forward to:
  1. Days where the temperature gets above 35 degrees and you can actually spend some time outdoors.
  2. Bringing the cushions out and putting them on the patio furniture (and being able to sit and enjoy the patio).
  3. Green, red, yellow, purplse and blue appearing in my flowerbeds and yard to replace brown as far as the eye can see.

  4. Shopping for annual flowers and tomato plants and being able to put them in the ground.
  5. Leisurely barbecue dinners and breakfasts on my patio

  6. Trying my hand at selling my wares at the local farmer's market some Saturday mornings.

SEE a Theme here? I admit I'm a California or Arizona girl at heart, I don't enjoy the cold weather here in Idaho. I spent last week in Southern California taking care of my precious 7 month old grand-daughter. We enjoyed almost daily walks to the Port Hueneme beach. I wouldn't mind a few more days spent there in the sand and sun (photo above). Think WARM!

That one's my favorite... I also enjoy picnics...

Those are all wonderful things to enjoy in summer and I'm looking forward to them too!

These are great things to do when the weather warms things up. I, too, am not a fan of the cold so I am always anxious to get outside once it gets above 70. Too bad it so quickly gets to a 100 around here in Texas.

I am so ready for spring to get here too...I'm so tired of the cold.
And daily walks just sound so wonderful :)

Hope I remembered to put the cushions in the shed the other day, so they won't get all wet! It's rainy today, but 2 days ago it was beautiful, and I sat outside....
