Happy 1st Day of Spring

There's something about having a day at home, working in the yard and doing miscellaneous projects around the house that makes me so happy. This morning we went to church, then came home, put Judah and Paisley down for naps and got some good stuff done.

Jeremiah pulled the lawn mower out for the first time this year and mowed the front and back grass. I pulled my car out of the garage, swept out the garage and vacuumed out the car. I also pruned the hydrangeas that are out front. Working out in the yard is therapeutic for me but, it's hard to find the time to do it during the week when I'm home with Judah and Paisley.

After nap time, Jeremiah and Judah headed to the store and bought sand for Judah's sand box. We discovered that sand is fun but, it gets everywhere. I think I'm going to be sweeping my kitchen floor more often and Judah is going to need to take more baths because sand is fun and messy. Seriously, tonight before bed, I was still finding sand in his ears!

For dinner, Jeremiah barbecued chicken. It was the first time using the barbecue this year so, that was fun. We were planning on eating outside but, it was super cold by dinner time so, we skipped that idea.

After I was done pruning the hydrangeas, I picked a few of the flowers that are blooming outside. I'm a firm believer that flowers are not supposed to just sit in your yard and look pretty. They need to come inside also so, they can be enjoyed!


  1. Once again, I love your post!
    Your flower arrangement is exquisite!!
    Love and Happy Spring, Mom

  2. I laughed when you said you found sand in the ears. My in-laws gave Daniel as sandbox several years ago and I smiled on the outside and cringed on the inside. I knew how messy sand can be. But I quickly learned it was worth it if/when they enjoyed playing outside. My girls can sit in the sandbox for a good hour getting FILTHY and love every minute of it!
