Early Spring

March 22, 2013

We’re down to 2 or 3 pants that fit each of my kids right now, with an extra thrown in here and there that are inches too short, but pass the test when worn with boots.  Flurries are swirling outside today, but I just cleared out all of the holiday dresses and too short pants and random winter stuff that never actually got any wear.  Thank goodness for hoodies to get us into t-shirt, especially for Nick. At least 75% of his winter shirts are stained or just too short for public wearing.

I keep going outside without a coat, sort of hopeful that my wishful thinking will bring the warmer weather and sunshine and green. We are bursting to get outside and dig in the dirt and get some sunshine on our pasty legs.  The weekend isn’t looking like it’s going to give us much in the way of warmth, but at least there will be sunshine!  Peas and radishes and some greens are going in the ground and a few little ones will be started inside, too.  I’m scaling back on variety this year and adding more flowers to the garden.  What are your weekend plans?  If you have on, are there any garden happenings in your neck of the woods yet?

    No signs of spring here (at all!) yet. I find myself wishing that spring would come because it seems that 4 out of my 5 kids are outgrowing their pants and I keep thinking that we can surely make it until spring. I use the boots trick with my youngest too. 🙂
    Weekend plans include everyone cleaning Saturday morning and then dinner at our place tomorrow night with some old friends we haven’t been with in awhile. Looking forward to no alarm tomorrow morning, too.
