Spring Cleaning and Decorating

I can't believe it!  The sun is shining and it's 64 degrees outside.  It feels so good for a change.  I was going to start my Easter/Spring decorating today anyway, but now I'm so much more motivated.  Of course, nothing is blooming and the melting snow is leaving everything looking dirty and wet, but a change is on the way.

Here's a little bit of the snow still laying around.
Surely this will be gone by tomorrow.

I brought in the last remnants of Christmas and winter decorations.  The wooden trees and little wooden snowman that were still on the back deck are finally put away.

Now my bunnies are out guarding the back and front doors until Easter.
Oh, the shovel has been put away, hopefully not to be seen again for another 8 months.

That's about it so far.  There's much more to do, but I clean as I go so it takes me a while.  I got all the St. Patrick's things gathered to be put away.

So now the Rubbermaid box labeled St. Patrick's Day can be brought up from the basement and packed and the Easter/Spring Rubbermaid boxes can be carried up.  I always forget what I have and each season it's like opening gift boxes as I sort out my seasonal decorations.  Then, of course, a trip or two always has to be made to JoAnn's to replace and update.  

My other seasonal decorating that needs to be done is my blog!  I love updating it a little each season, too.  Just because it's fun and makes me feel good!  

So you know what I'll be doing over the weekend.  Busy!  Busy!

I suspected it was about time you would get to redecorating your blog. Lovely background you chose, Nina. And of course spring is coming, and you are hard at work! :-)

All my projects for tomorrow. I sure would have loved to have been home today though!

Have a great weekend.

I can't believe there is any snow left, hopefully it will be gone this weekend! I have already bought a new "Welcome Bunny" for my front door without even getting my Easter/Spring tubs out... mistake for sure! I probably bought stuff after the season ended that I don't even remember I have! Oh well, have a wonderful weekend Dear Nina! HUGS!

I love the rabbit on the porch, he's a big boy. As I sit here blogging the sun is shining and it feels WARM. First time I've felt warm for months. Have a brilliant weekend.

Thank you for coming to my blog and leaving a comment. Mmmmm, did I already say this, on some entry here? :-) Not sure. So I'll say it again.

Snow nearly gone in our "neck of the woods" too. -happy sigh- It lasted way too long, this year. And not a thing, I can do about it, either. lol.

Dear One, I know I am brand-spanking-new to your pretty blog. And probably should not be asking questions, already. But...

I'll take the chance...

I see you use Comment Verification Setting and I have used that too. Just luckily, right now, I don't have to do so. Anyway, this is not, not, not about Comment Verification Setting!

It is about your use of Word Verification Setting... The *dreaded* Word Verification Setting... Is it necessary for you to make your Dear Readers do the *dreaded* Word Verification Setting... Tooooo?

So, why is it necessary to also make your Dear Readers do the *dreaded* Word Verification Setting... Tooooo?
