Small Talk Six

This is kind of a cool blog I found. You are to post 6 things about whatever topic you are given for the week. This week it's 6 Things You Love/Hate About Spring.

1. I love to watch the birds come back, the grass turn green, and the plants and trees begin to bud.

2. I love opening the windows and airing out the house. Toward the end of winter I start to get a little claustrophobic. I think our house does too. I swear I heard it sigh in relief the first time I opened the windows!

3. This year I will love being able to put Adelae back in her own room. I love the closeness of sharing a bed with her, but I wake up every time she moves. It will be nice to sleep soundly again.

4. I'm not a big fan of all the rain. I keep telling myself that we need the rain for the flowers and plants to grow. It doesn't help that when our ditch floods we experience some plumbing problems.

5. I love getting outside!

6. I love that I always feel re-energized when spring comes. I have so many projects that I want to tackle this summer. I can't wait to plant my garden, paint some trim in the house, repaint the kitchen, mulch the landscaping, etc etc etc.

1. I LOVE opening the windows for the first time.

2. I love spring cleaning. I get a strange little feeling of satisfaction from throwing things away and decluttering.

3. I love tulips! And daffodils. Spring flowers in general!

4. I love hearing the birds chirping in the morning - for about the first three weeks of spring. Then I want to shoot them!

5. I love the smell of spring.

6. I love spring showers. I love thunder and lightning too.

1. After about three weeks, I HATE birds chirping outside my window every morning!

2. I hate tracking mud into the house (from those peaceful spring showers that I love!).

3. I hate getting dressed based on how it LOOKS outside. Note to self, sunshine does not equal warmth.

4. I hate that there's a potential for my basement to flood.

5. I hate that spring is so short.

6. I hate that spring teases us. I wish it'd just GET HERE! :-)
