I've Got a Fever...SPRING Fever!


Just got back from visiting my BFF in Iowa!  Boy do we have our schedules backwards ~ she needs to visit me in Florida this time of the year!  As expected, it was bone-chillin' cold and it snowed three times in five days.  Thought about buying one of these:


...Didn't though - stayed inside, cozy and warm, having a great time with Melanie.  We shopped and selected faucets, flooring, cabinets, tile and a chandelier for her master bathroom renovation ~ it's gonna be awesome!  I'll blog about it later when she sends me some pictures.

We also cleaned out and reorganized her master bedroom walkin closet.  You'll probably think I'm a wierdo, but I really loved doing this!  Almost as much as I enjoyed helping celebrate her birthday with her sweet hubby Ray:


As lovely as the snow was...

(Melanie snapped this from her front door)

...I was thrilled to feel the 82 degrees when I returned home.  E. Marshall said it best:

"Out with the cold, in with the woo!"

Must say it feels so great, this warm weather.  I know spring doesn’t technically begin until later this month, but Orlando and Mother Nature have already launched the party.  Look at the surprises Twyla and I found in the pasture this morning:


The warmer weather, blooming flowers, longer days ~ oooh, I've definitely caught spring fever.  Feverish bouts of house-cleaning, restlesness, and an urgent desire for a long overdue pedicure will likely follow.

And I'll hear Uncle Remus singing.


Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay

Mister Bluebird on my shoulder
It's the truth, it's actch'll
Ev'rything is satisfactch'll
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!

I hope all of YOU have a wonderful day:)

I love that bird feeder! Where did you find it? My husband has three bird feeders in the yard, and is talking about wanting another one. I keep trying to get him to buy cute ones, but he won't. This would be a great addition!
Thank you!
