Thursday Thirteen #35: Excited about SPRING

Thirteen Things about SPRING

Okay, I know, it's only February, headed into March. But it's been nearly 60 here for the past few days and I can't help but Think SPRING!!

1. Since we're in a new house, I get to re-plan my landscaping. Start fresh. Anything goes. Ugh. I'm sorta nervous about this. I have a black thumb and have no idea what's going to work. But still... it'll be a grand adventure.
2. We'll get to finally dig a sprinkler system. Really, when I say "we", I mean "he" as in That Man.
3. We'll get to finally pull out those ugly evergreen hedges. Why, oh why, does every house have to have those nasty spider home things? Again, when I say "we", I mean "he".
4. We'll get to start another garden. This time, I really do mean "we". The kiddos love growing tomatoes and snacking on them all summer. Once "he" gets it plotted out, tilled, and whatever else one does to a garden, I'll start planting.
5. We'll finally be able to see the back yard to pick up the dog poop. Here, I say "we", mean that I'll try to make the kiddos and hubby do it, but end up doing it myself because I'm the only one who cares about dog poop in the yard.
6. We'll get to take walks. Or at least think about it. We moved away from the nature preserve, so now I'll have to walk through the neighborhood. Not so much fun, but good exercise.
7. We'll get to walk to DQ and Starbucks again. Both within walking distance of the new house.
8. I'll get to make the kids stay outside more. YAY!! No more running and screaming in the house.
9. I'll get to sit on my nice new patio set I bought specifically for sitting on the front porch, sipping iced tea, and waving at the neighbors.
10. I'll get to say "YES!" next time the kids want to go to the zoo.
11. I finally won't have to live in sweaters.
12. We can get the rest of our stuff out of storage and finish moving in. Yes, I mean "we" as in "he" except that I'll be pointing and bossing him around.
13. Tax season is almost over and I can have a life again.

My graphic headers are easy to use. Just upload them to your Thursday blog entry [the small icon in your blog entry window where you type your stuff] and then upload them from your computer [after you've clicked on them from my blog and saved them].

They then will show up as your thursday thirteen header.

I'm with ya--spring is here! And I'm ready! I've started running again (which I don't do in the col), and it feels good!
And you people have got to stop calling them tt.

I'm laughing at nearly 60 making you think of Spring. Our outlook all depends on where we live doesn't it? Out here in Southern California nearly 60 makes me think of Winter. But it's much too hot most of the year out here for my taste.

Yum, for those Summer tomatoes!

That was a pleasant list to read.

Thanks for stopping by my Thurs. 13. Glad you noticed the headline. :-)

Have a great day!

Oh, I know you'll be glad when tax season is over. Whew!

I agree about the ground cover evergreens. Ugh. Who likes those? We have about 6 wee need to tear out too. :)

Yep that "he" gets a lot of the "we" project but does not mind
