The beauty-ful spring weekend that we have had has kept me outside and away from the computer. A long Saturday of yard work and enjoying the sunshine found me sitting in church this morning with a sunburn. I'm not sure what it is that makes me do this to myself every year. It is almost like each new year I think that I will have some kind of miracle tan left from the past summer to protect me.

10 things I love about spring this year:
1. A new front lawn growing and showing improvement each day
2. Living on a street that is quiet enough for my kids to ride their bikes
3. The smell of lilacs in our back yard
4. Getting ready to have a garden
5. Barbecuing
6. Birds in the trees
7. Planning summer camp-outs
8. Sitting on the front porch and watching the new grass grow
9. Times when the wind isn't so bad
10. New miniature roses in my flower bed

Stop making me jealous with all your talk of spring, gardens and b-b-qing!!! We're still having winter in Minnesota and one day we will wake up and it'll be summer, but there really isn't spring. By the way, pretty lilacs : )
