The weekend was good. After a cold and rather miserable week and a lot of running around taking all three kids to free Splash Week at the local YMCA, the weekend was just the thing. Warm, mostly sunny with a bit of rain (The grass seed in the front lawn needs help. Please, oh please grow and cover the dirt and moss) I could hardly complain about a thing. And somewhere along the way, Spring REALLY arrived.
We were outside all weekend.
And getting things done.
I believe I can safely say that Laundry on the Line season has officially begun.
Really, this was all just what I needed after a bit of post-vacation letdown. I am even okay with the mess inside today because I feel like we got so much accomplished OUT. I did begin to worry that I was developing some sort of OCD for pulling maple seedlings though. For every one I pulled, there were ten more I spotted nearby. I pulled HUNDREDS of them and there are still more waiting. In fact, there is a lot of outdoor work waiting. But I now have a decently picked up breezeway, a somewhat raked up lawn in the back and Mike cut down some more of the ugly bushes along the side of the house. Thankfully, I believe that is helping with the ant "problem" and the guys are coming today to quote about the glass block basement windows. Why is NOTHING in an older house a standard size??? Yeah, there is a lot to do. Sometimes I get really caught up in what ISN'T done and really worried about how we will ever do any of it and really impatient for it to already be a gorgeous outdoor oasis, but not today.
Today I'm off to a good start and I'm off to enjoy this hot, sunny day and to get my sheets hung out on that line.
