Spring Is in the Air!

Spring is the time for spring break. My boys are home for the next few weeks. WVU was on break last week; NYU starts this week. Boy #1 (Caleb) will be flying home tomorrow, which is great. Unfortunately for me, I started reading Judy Blume's In The Unlikely Event.  It's an excellent book, of course, though in hindsight, I don't think a book centered around planes crashing is the best leisure read when your baby is about to board an aircraft.

Spring is also the time for spring cleaning. My mother used to be the most ardent spring cleaner. The whole house would get a once-over and a scrub down. I've always avoided the week-long power clean, but I'm thinking this year, the place is in need of top-to-bottom scrub down. So far, I've cleaned a drawer in the kitchen and the coat closet. That's progress.

I miss you, goofy spring-cleaning nut. 
It's also time for spring flowers.  The crocuses are in full bloom, the daffodils and tulips are getting ready. Most all of my spring flowers came from my mom's yard, so they're doubly special.

Deer and rabbits love the taste of spring blooms. 
Last year, I started letting my dogs relieve 
themselves around the flower beds and that 
seems to have deterred the critters. 
Gross, but effective. 
Spring is also the time for Write Club! As a slush pile reader, I've got my reading glasses on and I'm ready to read. Get the details here.
