Changes, Busy-ness, and I've Been Away

It's been very busy these last few weeks. I've been traveling a lot, helping Chickie out with some things. Work has had more challenges than usual.

And then, I did "spring cleaning" last Tuesday. That was wonderful, but now my weekly cleaning schedule is kind of wacky.

But I can feel it in the air....

Spring is coming!

I didn't know we were going to get 7-8 inches of snow overnight. Our snow had just finished melting and snow drops and anenomes were blooming.

But it's different this time. It's to be in the 40's all week, and the birds are singing like crazy.

Yep, the birds are singing like crazy. They know it too.

Spring is coming!

Wishing all of you a wonderful week, and a fabulous Wednesday!

Join me as I join in White Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday today!

Spring is definitely making an entrance here. It just happened overnight. Snap! Everything starting budding out.


I'm dreaming of 72 degrees! Loaded down with SNOW here :( not in the mood for anything...

That's funny. You only had 7-8 inches of snow and you can feel Spring! We had a beautiful weekend - mid to high 70s, but to me it's cold again today.

Only got about 2" north of Philly, melted on roads and pavements by noon-love that! I'm so ready Carol, can't wait to open the windows and let the spring breeze in:@)

I can really see that spring is coming by all the beautiful flowers around blogland. Everyday is one day closer.

Deanne said...

So amazing to see all the snow when we are melting over here in the Australian heat!

Carol it was 83 degree here today and that broke a record! back to the 60's tomorrow in the am though. I have got a ton of garden and yard work done in the past two days and feel like I have been thrown down the stairs. ♥O

Hi Carol! I can't imagine all of that snow! I hate to tell you but we've have been having wonderful weather in the high 60s! :)
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Yes, spring really is coming. She may have to step over a snowbank or two... Spring cleaning in winter? You're mighty ambitious!

Hoping you get Spring very soon! Blessings to you and Chickie.

Sue said...

Yes, Spring is coming, and I for one will welcome her with open arms.
Enjoy your week.

Hi Carol!
We're under a winter snow warning here in Portland, Oregon...we've had a mild winter so far, but we may end up getting a taste of what the rest of the country has had to deal with.
Glad you liked the recipe I posted...sad your hubs doesn't like apple butter much...If you decide to try the recipe let me know what you think!

Hey Carol

Spring cleaning done already - girl you are ahead of the game - good for you!

The snow that we got yesterday is starting to melt too.

Come on Spring!

Kathy said...

Even though we've had unusually warm weather this February, we can still get some freezing weather through March -but, I have been enjoying the blooms I've seen - I haven't seen snowdrops yet, I was looking for them yesterday - they're so adorable!
Hope today is warm and sunny for you,

Lots of snow here and still more to come. I dream of green grass, tilled garden, and tulips!

Spring is coming!
The birds in our backyard are already pairing up...the flowers you mentioned will be fine...my Honey Bear says that snow provides nitrogen to the soil and plants.
