Friend Makin' Monday--Spring

 Friend Makin' Monday
Amber has some good questions for us this week.  I don't know how she comes up with new ideas every week but I am glad she does.  Here is her list for today:

1. Favorite things about Spring:  This has to be the change in the weather.  I like it when you can gradually wear a lighter coat then a jacket, then a sweater then just a long sleeve shirt, then shorter shirt, then at last when you can wear just a summer top!

2. What I'm doing for Spring Break: I am going to San Francisco for a first  birthday party for Hudson!

3. Favorite Spring flower:  The daffodils because they come up first in my yard.  It would be a toss-up between those and the tulips except there are no tulips because the deer eat them.

4. Do you have a garden? Not yet.  Last year I had a small pot garden with tomatoes and peppers.  I planted my herbs in the ground and they did well--sage, basil and thyme.

5. If so, what do you grow.  See above.

6. Do you do Spring cleaning?  I try to keep things in order all year but I do pay to have my windows washed (all 55 of them) because they are old and have storm windows on the outside and are hard to clean.  I love it when I can see clearly out them after all the winter grime and stuff is off.

7. What is your weather *really* like right now? {Just b/c it's "officially" spring, doesn't mean that it feels like it for some of you}  It is vacillating between 40 and 60 degrees.

8. Snapped any weather related photos lately? Share one with us!  It snowed all day on Saturday!
9. What's your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon? I love to just sit outside and soak in the Vitamin D.
10. Favorite TV show right now?I'm following American Idol, The Ref and 24.

It has been fun thinking about and looking forward to Spring coming to this part of the world.  I can hardly wait!  Visit Amber for more interesting answers to these same questions.  Happy Monday to you!

The snow picture is so pretty, but it makes me shudder! We had so much snow dumped on us this year!!! Have a great trip to San Fran!

In these early days of spring, the weather often fluctuates doesn't it. One day cold, the next a tempting tease of warmth and sunshine. Soon, it will settle and we will be in for some gorgeously beautiful days I am sure!

Thank you for the "knee commiseration." :)

I didn't mention it yesterday but I love the pictures on your blog! Especially the one looking out the window at the snow. Reminds me of growing up in New England. We get snow in Oklahoma but it never piles up like that (not complaining mind you)!

Hope you're having a terrific Tuesday!

Thanks for finding me and for your sweet comments! :)

Spring can't come fast enough! How awful that was the scene outside your window on Saturday! We got snow as well, but not quite as much.

Take care, thanks for visiting! :)
