Spring into the New....

Friday, March 5, 2010

It's almost Spring time!  Thank goodness.  This winter has been ridiculous.  Record snow fall.  EVERYWHERE.  Good gravy, it even snowed in TAMPA and MIAMI this year.  That is SOUTH FLORIDA people.  Craziness, I tell you.

So it's time for Old Man Winter to get his shit and get out.  Not that I am looking forward to a heat wave, just that, I am looking forward to people getting back to normal.  Everyone has been pissy.   I think it is because of the weather.  The shut in.  Too cold to play outside.  Too cold to go out, unless you have to.  Everyone has been depressed.  It has been getting even the best of us down.


So, Vernal Equinox....I am throwing you a welcome party!  Let's dance.  I will admit, I haven't always been Spring's biggest fan.  Days get longer (Hello?  Night owl?!?).  Time jumps forward so that I lose an hour. Grrr....  Then there is the whole SPRING CLEANING thing.  Ugh!  We clean all the time.  Spring Cleaning implies that the other three seasons of the year we do a half-assed job cleaning.


I do look forward to the grass being green again.  The early blooms on trees are my favorite.  The crisp air in the morning.  The sunshine peering in the windows.  Spring is beautiful.  


New spring veggies are just the best.  Sweet peas?  Mmmm....
The vegetables just look fabulous this time of year.  I can't wait for all the sweet spring veggies!
Pasta Primavera come to Momma!




What's your favorite part of Spring?  What are you looking forward to?  


BTW - I am guest posting this weekend.  You can find me at That One Mom's place.  The Chronicles of an Only Parent.  I am doing her FEX (Future Ex-Husbands) Post.  It's gonna be Kangaroofic!  C'mon and join me!!

O I love when spring shows up around here. Turning over of the ground for gardens, planting flowers, hands in the dirt... LOVE it

Angelia said...

The fresh, clean smell in the air. I love it. Opening the windows to air out the house-feeling like I can breathe again. That's my favorite part of spring.

Alison said...

Spring in Colorado means some pretty amazing snowfall and then days warm enough to go out in short sleeves and PLAY in the snow.....love it

MindyMom said...

I'm so ready for Spring too. I love the change of seasons but Fall is my favorite. Colorado has the best weather. Really.

One tomato two tomato three tomato four

Danielle said...

Wearing flip flops and tank tops! Having the window rolled down or the air conditioner on! Ah heaven!

Ian said...

F WINTER

That is all

Vinomom said...

I think May is my favorite month of spring. Maybe because it's closer to summer...but I love the gradual warming of the air, being able to take my dog to the dogpark again, seeing neighbors out in their yards. And YES I am going to get out in the garden and do something with it. Something that looks nice!

Quirkyloon said...

I'm sorry but I'm in the minority. Spring here means 100+ degree days are just a few hours away.

I'll take our cold wintry days of 65 degrees!

Go ahead, slap me. You know you want to.

HA!

B-Dub said...

I can't wait to kick the kids to the ever loving curb! Well, at least to the back yard. The house STAYS a mess all winter, can't keep up with the crazies. Clean House here I come, assuming I can find the motivation that disappeared into the fog of depression sitting over our house.

Iva said...

yummmmmmmmmmmy for spring veggies!! happy Friday, have a great weekend!!

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

I love spring - just the extra sunlight and smell of new growth (provided you've kept up with your yard duties where dogs are concerned that is... otherwise notsomuch!) makes me feel alive!

Stopping by from CCWA - have an awesome weekend!

That One Mom said...

I am so ready for spring! I can't wait to plant dahlias and fly to Florida....

Angelia said...

I drove hubby's convertable today because my car is in the shop...I spent my lunch hour with the top down! YAY!

You have an award over on my blog!

Secretia said...

Flowering trees and plants make spring so beautiful, that's what I like best, plus of course the warm temps.

My space heater is broken and since we're moving, I don't want to buy another one. I'm absolutely freezing and my hands are like ice. I just want some warmth!!!!

I came by to feed your fish (and observe your awesomeness). But I always worry. How much is too much? Did someone feed them right before I got here? What if I overfeed them?

But then I decided I would rather die of overeating than starvation.

So if your fish die, its my fault. Sorry.

I love spring. And since I live in Arizona, I enjoy spring for about 5 minutes and then it launches right into summer. But I honestly do love the feeling of walking out of an ice cold air conditioned building into the hot dry heat.

Menopausal New Mom said...

You're mellow today girl! My favorite part of spring is being able to throw open the windows and air out the house after a long Winter.

ScoMan said...

Not you too? Everyone's gone crazy!

It's autumn people! Autumn!

Spring is still 6 months away.

Jen said...

The Queen said...

Mandi said...

I do love the spring... I love all the flowers. It really has been a crazy winter!

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Spring? What's a Spring? Is that one of those season thingies?

Ed said...

I am soooo ready for spring & summer.

Alex said...

Awwww, heck, I hate being upside down.

We've just hit autumn which is a blessing after our scorcher of a summer and our $1000 power bill (ducted air con sucks ass, my friend!).

Lucky for me, the beach is still awesome and Australia pretty much has rocking weather round the clock. Apart from the rain in the last week that has almost made me kill my whole family.

Just saying a bit of sun would be nice.

June said...

This spring is going to be great! I expended my garden so I will have more room to plant those yummy veggies.
Plus, I planted a ton of bulbs last year for the first time and can't wait to see the results!!

What a great post.
Can I come for dinner?

Me-Me King said...

My favorite part of Spring is when the desert comes alive with the blooming of all the wild flowers. It is spectacular!!!

Lluvia said...

I'm so ready for Spring! I love the colors!!!!

I can't wait for the flowers (yes, even the desert has local flowers). I just love the weather...wearing cool clothes. I love it all!!

sarah @ i run with scissors said...

I'm looking forward to not having to dig my car out of a foot of snow.

I'm not looking forward to having to shave my legs again so I can wear shorts.

And I'm looking forward to your guest post.

Matty said...

I think we're all in the same boat with mother nature. Everyone is looking forward to a warm up and bright sunny days. I most look forward to warmer weather and the start of baseball.

Corrie Howe said...

Favorite part about Spring? Um? That it is getting warmer? Tulips and lilies?

Fall is my favorite season of the year.

gayle said...

I love Spring!! Flowers, weather, kids playing outside, green grass!

Kristin said...

Wait...huh? I live in Tampa. How did I miss snow?

Aimee said...

I always say "Good gravy." I don't know why, because I cuss like a sailor. I said it at Wal-Mart the other day and the cashier laughed at me and asked if she could use it. Whatev lady.

As for your question, I am looking forward to my toes turning from blue to a nice, healthy shade of pink again. And I swear to my soul I'm getting a storm door this year. My house feels like a dungeon.
