I Just Love Friday

Okay, I will admit to feeling a bit of spring fever. I am trying not to let it go very far. Just a tiny bit. I was doing okay with keeping the fever at bay until yesterday when my hubby asked me to go outside to look at his trees. The sun was setting and there was a tiny bit of warm left. You can smell the blossoms from the pear trees and it is my favorite time of day. My husband grows things for fun, so I prefer what he grows. He has been trying to get his hyacinths to bloom for me. He has a few that will be blooming I think by Monday but this one was for me for Valentines Day.

My kitchen smells heavenly with just this one. I can't wait for the others to bloom so they will perfume the whole downstairs. I would rather have the flowers he grows than just about anything else in the world.

That little tool box will be what I am giving away for my March giveaway. Well one like it. I just thought I would tell you now.

My camera is having some problems. As much as I hate to admit it I might have to break down and buy a new one. I was fooling with it the other morning instead of walking with Sasha. I took this picture when I was trying different settings on my camera. I thought it captured her total boredom with me.

 She was not happy about being in the house. She was ready to walk and I was sitting. She is behind me now as I type this and she keeps doing this heavy sigh thing to let me know this is not fun.

My two oldest that still live at home are getting ready to leave for a 4 day snow camp. I should have planned this better and made the younger two go and then Mom and Dad could have had a romantic weekend. First time in 32 years we could have a the whole house to ourselves. Well, maybe next year. When there isn't a wedding on the horizon. We have 11 weekends left. We have now entered the beginning of panic stage. There will be no rest for the wicked from here on until May 19th. My Valentines present from my husband this year is he is going to help me do the rest of the tile in the whole house this weekend. He is going to scrub and I am going to mop up. I am pretty OCD but he makes me looks like a slob. I am so excited do you know how clean my house is going to be by Monday?

It will be a very fun weekend for me. I hope you have nice plans for your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by today. I really appreciate you.

  1. Hehe, such a nice Valentine's day present, if you ask me! It's always nice to have help cleaning. 11 weekends... that makes it sounds so much more terrifying!

    Today, we are going to take a picnic lunch and camp out at the airport to watch the big planes come and go. The boys are pretty excited, they have been talking about it since Monday when I said we could do it.

  5. It would be a very fun weekend for me if y'all would come do that at my house. LOL Poor Sasha. Sitting there glaring while someone doesn't get moving. :) Tucker looks at me like I'm an idiot too when I don't get right to the walk or run in the mornings. If spring comes, please keep it out there. I'm still waiting on winter. :( LOVE the little tool box! Guess what? When I look up from my favorite chair (I'm sitting in it now), I can see my stack of hearts. I just love them. And you too!

  13. Oh feeling spring fever here also....and only two weeks before the wedding...but two marriages in that time! Oh my! This morning at 1 am the panic was felt...I need to get all the pictures on a slide show for the reception. I can't imagine doing it all or having it at my home....although having a home to have it in would have been wonderful and it would have been a joy...God had other plans.
    Enjoy, enjoy.....you will have half of yours married!!! I have half married in two weeks.
