Spring Fever

Wanaka- 130

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

Well, officially it's the last week of winter. It's been a completely lovely winter in my world but I do love spring. To celebrate winter one last time in my household it seems B and I are a mixture of sniffly noses, coughs and queasy stomachs. So bring on the spring!

As soon as I muster up the energy I'll be purging the apartment of "stuff" that can be given away. I'm temporarily motivated to get some flowers or plants for the balcony. I'm daydreaming of a nap in the warm sun outside the library. Or maybe I'm just daydreaming of a nap anywhere...

How are you preparing for spring?


  1. You know, it's funny... I wondered why I suddenly felt the need to completely gut and reorganize my office space this past Saturday. Now I know!

    Spring Cleaning!

  2. Sorry ya'l feel crummy! We've been in the same boat, my little one just got over some virus and I still feel like a million ecoli covered bucks.
    We sprayed the grass a lovely shade of aquamarine yesterday, a sure sign that spring is coming when you bring out the Round Up.

  3. I pulled weeds today to get ready for some pretty flowers. Not sure what to add, just know I am ready for some color!! :)

  4. We swept out the driveway. You wouldn't have believed all the sand. And we vacuumed out the car...again. I could have had a sandbox. Aren't you jealous??:)

  5. I think I'm weeding. I am still waiting for warm weather! Get over your cold soon!

  6. Hope you and B feel better.

    I'm "purging" --one corner at a time.

  7. Hope you feel better!
    I cleaned out clothes racks for 5 hours this past weekend. Now I'm on to other closets!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I kinda feeling like y'all.

    Starting to pull weeds to get the garden prepped.

    Hope y'al feel better soon.

  9. Hope you feel better soon, the hot weather we are having should help. Rest and take care o you!

  10. I just piled a huge box of junk into my garage yesterday. I hope you feel better soon!!

  11. Yuck, I hope you feel better soon. I hate colds! The sun will definitely help. I'm day dreaming of sunbathing poolside at Match's parents' house. I also did a bunch of spring cleaning last week. This weekend I'm going to attempt gardening. We'll see, I tend to forget things like watering. ;-)

  12. Girl, this Floridian that is in the north is ready for SUMMER! Forget spring. I need some sunshine & hot weather.

  13. All 5 of us have been sick too and it's no fun! No way to start spring anyway. Hope you're on the mend soon and napping in the sun!

  14. Oh, love that photo! Perfect with the quote!

  15. I haven't decided to do a garden or not this year. Hubby and I travel all over the place, and are never sure if we can find someone to tend to it. So, for now, I happily watch my daffodils grow.

  16. Dandy,
