We all probably have it right now, spring fever. I know I do. I was given a small taste of it last weekend when it was a wonderful 70 degrees on Sunday. I wore shorts and washed my car, it was weird. You won’t usually find me in shorts until at least the end of June, if that. I almost expected a sunburn since it took me an hour and a half to wash my car, twice. But I came in not much pinker than I went out, and I also got my car looking good again. Of course it rained some the next evening but I made sure to stay home so that I didn’t have to leave the garage and ruin all of that hard work. It was very hard work, I was even sore the next day.
What else did spring weather have me do? Pruning. I just grabbed the shears and went to hacking off tree limbs from my apple tree and crepe myrtles. Also, my few grapes needed some work. I had no idea what to do with the apple tree, and that is part of the reason why it had never been done before. It grew a lot last year, and I couldn’t put it off any longer. I am sure I did a fine job, and I guess I could have asked google if I really wanted to know. Next on the tree list, dig up the dead one, or cut it down rather. The boys in my life are very much looking forward to that chore – my boy is anyway. A twelve year old given the okay to cut down a tree, fun times!
I have a spring break to look forward to next week, and I really hope the weather cooperates so that I am able to get to some more spring like stuff. If it doesn’t, I guess I could always do some spring cleaning inside. There is never a time that doesn’t need to be done, but oh how I dread tackling the boy’s closet and that garage of ours…
Have a lovely weekend, readers!
