Spring is finally here. Well technically and according to the calendar it is. I’m soooo happy for the change of season, the blooming of pretty flowers, leaves budding on trees, children out playing and renewing of my spirit. Can’t you just smell the pictures and feel that water flowing down? It’s so calming and welcoming for the new season that is upon us. Spring is in the air….let’s all inhale and exhale right now.
It’s time to look at everything as if it’s new, like Easter Sunday when I was a child with my brand new outfit on. I’m putting on my new outfit and heading out to show it off…well sort of. With our recent move, I gave away a lot of clothing and other household items that I no longer use. That’s a lot of layers, because I’m one of those women that will hold on to things when I’m not using them, so it was a big move for me to give away most of my clothes. If I hadn’t worn the item in two years, they were donated. Funny thing is my style has changed a lot, I’m more comfort based, rather than fussy and dressy like I used to be. I still like to dress up, it’s just very different for me now. And the shoes I gave away…..wow, that was hard. I love my shoes, but same thing, I hadn’t worn half of them in over two years and I don’t wear anything over 3 inches anymore and they have to be wedges. I know some of you are cringing at this, but that’s a fact of life for me now and guess what….I’m ok with that.
I also did some spring cleaning a few weeks ago, finally started some minor repairs on the house. We have major cracks due to the house settling and had those cracks filled. You would have thought I had new windows put in. I was so excited about it, those cracks were so ugly. I’ve even started picking out interior paint colors for all the rooms. The girls have picked theirs as well, my oldest wants a light pink and the youngest wants a light blue or white, she hasn’t decided. The two pictures on the right above are the same spot, I just took the picture up close a bit more. Although I know it’s gonna cost money, I can’t wait to finish with the repairs. This is major for me as I have an issue with finishing things.
This is necessary in my kitchen, Cafe Mocha central. The reason for the two Keurig’s, the new one doesn’t allow you to use your own coffee, you have to use the Keurig K-Cups and that’s the only thing it will take. So glad I kept the older one because I like to try a variety of coffees and they aren’t all K-Cups. Gotta have my coffee.
