Do you see it?

Are you seeing signs of Spring?




It's house cleaning day for us.
The Baby dumped a jar of ground cinnamon all over the house.
And then carried in a bucket of ashes from the fire pit outside and dumped them in every room he could.
And the puppy, Lilo, has dirtied up a lot of towels this week.
I'm way behind and struggling to get back on top of this place!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

I love when the crocus's are peeking through the ground!!

I'm not sure where to start cleaning in my house.................we have a constant "dry" layer of desert dust. I am constantly "spring" cleaning!

Gorgeous pictures!!!

Does your whole house smell like you've been baking now? See? There's an upside to spilling cinnamon...

Did you get my email?

I'm jealous. I have spring fever and can't wait for all our snow to melt in Minnesota and we can see beautiful flowers again. Hope you have a great weekend too!

Those are just beautiful pictures! I'm getting more and more excited for spring, each day! We have some daffodils blooming in our yard!

I'm sorry about the mess your baby boy left! Sounds like a lot to clean up!

Have a blessed weekend!

Love the crocus! Our Day lillies are starting to sprout up.

How frustrating to have one of your children into things he/she shouldn't be! I know this all too well!

Hoping things get better for you this weekend!

I am. Saw our first bluebonnets blooming today. They are the state flower of Texas and gorgeous. Can't wait for the paintbrush to catch up. Nothing prettier than a field of both together.
By the way, ground cinnamon is a great natural repellant for ants. :)

Oh my dear I can't believe how nice you sound "the baby dumped cinnamon all over the house" and the dog added to the MESS!! Even when I had young children and a dog I don't think I would sound so nice!@!@@!!
love the spring flowers!! that's what I miss about the "seasons" cuz I'm in SoCal

We did the spring cleaning thing last week. Feels good to get a fresh start and our crocuses are just peaking through.
At least the cinnamon smelled good. My baby once found a full bottle of talcum powder and when I went to check on him he said "it snowed"

Oh those are just stunning! Crocus...those first little faces of spring! Love 'em...miss 'em!!!

What pretty flowers....what ARE they???

At least with the Baby sprinkling cinnamon all over the place at least it SMELLS good! Too funny about the ashes...he does look like a chimney sweep.

Andrea said...
