Springtime Chores

Whew! This weekend was a busy one! For whatever reason I was thinking that this weekend was going to be an easy one. A time to kick back and enjoy the springtime breezes and blooms. Yeah, right...

I found out that Saturday morning was the time that our county was collecting hazardous household waste. My mom had a slew of old, old cleaning products and some cans of paint and I told her that I would take it to the collection site. No problem. I was running some errands anyway. I get to the collection site and I think everyone in the entire county decided to get there at the same time. :-P Actually, it was very organized and went pretty quickly, considering.

After running errands, since it was a nice afternoon, we decided to empty our shed and take out the deck furniture. Ryan power washed the deck and back of the house and I cleaned the furniture. This took longer than I thought it would take and by the time we finished, I had to get ready for church as I was serving that evening. It was a great service (our praise band rocks!) and came home in time to have a late dinner. Did some laundry and by the time 9PM rolled around I was ready for bed. (This is where old age gets you. lol!)

Got up early Sunday morning and was scheduled to serve at church again. (How did that happen? Not that I mind.) Came home, had lunch, took the dog for a long walk. Since rain was in the forecast for Monday, we decided to get some yard work done. After working in the yard for the better part of the afternoon, time for dinner. Chilled out a bit and hit the sack at 9:30 p.m. I have such an exciting life. lol!

So today it is raining and I hopefully will be able to do some things that have been on hold while I attended to springtime chores. Things like some scrapbooking and working on my son's quilt (a work in progress).

Here is hoping that your work will be light and you can take the time to unwind and smell the roses.

Thanks for looking in!


  1. the weekends are NEVER long enough! i always need another day LOL

  2. I'm exhausted now! Haha! Hope you got your springtime chores done today :)

  3. For some reason, May gets really busy. We do our spring planting and I have my piano recital, for starters. But it feels good to get things done before the summer heat sets in.

  4. Isn't that the way it goes. You have all these great plans and they don't work out, or take more time then you expected ;)
    Oh well, you have a nice organized and clean shed out of it ;)
