{Have you gotten Spring Fever yet?}

Well Spring has officially arrived according to the calendar but the weather part of Spring in Florida can change in a day! LOL! 

 I love my little wishing well. My dad built this for me 22 years ago and it sure has held many a hanging basket!

A friend of mine told me recently that she had Spring Fever bad and that she was wanting to get outside and play in the dirt.

What is Spring Fever to you? 
  
Simple Definition of spring fever

  • : a feeling of wanting to go outdoors and do things because spring is coming and the weather is getting warmer
      
    Another definition says; a lazy or restless feeling often associated with the onset of spring 

    I'm getting a hankering to play with some herbs again. Now making the time to do that has been another story.

    But I have been busy doing other things such as...........

    Cleaning out kitchen cabinets and drawers! GRR.....Yes, I actually got rid of some of my junk and you have no clue how hard that is for me to do! 

     I recently ordered granite to redo my kitchen counter tops and hopefully within the next few weeks that project will begin so I guess I sorta...kinda...had an urge to clean out cabinets. Maybe that's my Spring Fever for now!

    I picked this design and color...what ya think?


    After I ordered the granite then my mind began to wander.....I'll need to purchase new handles and hinges for my cabinets, repaint my pantry door, buy new rugs, and well, you get the picture, right? My man told me I was "overwhelming" him so let's just take one project at a time!
     
    I've been trying to finish up some aprons for my grandgirls. Maybe I can finish the trim before they get too big to wear them!!!



    How many Easter eggs did you find? We sure had a wonderful Easter. It was suppose to rain a lot on Easter afternoon but the Lord found favor in our family and it did not rain till our Family Egg Hunt was complete! But then with our crew...rain would not have stopped us! We would have went to plan B....you always gotta have a plan B right?


    My youngest grandgirl (on left) was glad to see her cousin. Isn't this the cutest picture?



    Just a few more weeks till the new grandgirl is due. We are anticipating her arrival. This Nana has her bag packed and ready to go too! (I actually had my bag ready before the mom-to-be packed her hospital bag!)


     In the meantime I'll just keep enjoying a little coffee.....


    And meditate on my Scripture for today....


    Have a good and blessed day....

    Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. I love the color of the granite Cindy. I done granite counter tops two years ago and love it. But boy is that stuff pricey! What a sweet picture of those two cuties. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of that cutie that is on the way.

    1. Thanks Connie. YES...I just knew I was going to have to sell my first born child and my all my grandchildren in order to buy the granite! But hoping I will NEVER have to replace it again! Think I am going to love it.

  5. The granite you picked looks just like my brother and sister in law's. It's really pretty installed. I do have spring fever...just came in from mowing...not a favorite thing to do. I've been trying to do some cleaning out, too. A necessary chore after almost 39 years ago marriage. :) Happy Wednesday, friend.

  6. Cindy,
    The granite looks beautiful!! Last year I worked hard and cleaned out and went through everything in the house. Now I am ready to start again because the things I did save will now be looked at with the attitude that if I did not use it in the past year, out it goes.
    Thanks so much for visiting!!
    Hugs,
    Deb

  8. I've had a touch of spring fever too! It must be going around! My problem is...spring doesn't last long enough and soon we'll be having the hot, humid days of summer. ugh.. Think I'll just have another cup of coffee, read another scripture and go buy a new hanging basket!!

  9. Can't wait to see the granite installed, that's the color we need if/when we get new. Love the wishing well! I guess my spring fever is laziness, I'm planning to clean out MBR closet, but procrastinating. I'll probably wait till I get two injections (in both hips) before I tackle it tho. I always enjoy seeing what you've got going on! Excited about your gbaby arriving too!

    Happy Spring!

  10. I'll tell you what, you sure can make a person smile, Cindy (grinning). SPRING FEVER? not yet...although we have mild days for a few days now, but snow is in the forecast for the weekend and Monday. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of your grandbaby as well, smiles...

  11. Hi Cindy! Oh, I'm so happy for you getting granite countertops! We had them in Galveston but not here. I miss them terribly! :( I know, when you start redoing it just never stops. Your little grand is just adorable and I know you had a wonderfully blessed Easter with your family. I saw on the news this morning that someone filmed a wild cat running across a walking bridge! Lord, have mercy. When you go walking take your shotgun! ;)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  15. Oh...happy happenings at your place. My husband would be overwhelmed, too, which would make me overwhelmed. Ha! I do like your choices and look forward to seeing the finished project one day. A new grand on her way...what a cute way to announce her coming! Yes, I do love the photo of the cousins hugging. Darling!
