Some Ideas!!

I thought I might get a way from some of the philosophical writing and get into some practical ideas for this grand adventure we are on!  It is technically spring in my part of the world, but we still have tons of snow!  We got big "Christmas" snow yesterday and it has covered all the grass that was showing.  But I have not given up hope!  It is at these times that I really wonder about global warming...hmmm!
I have gone to the store and to the shed to gather all that I need and have planted some little seeds!  (Seeds of hope and faith that the warm weather must be coming soon!) It was wonderful to get my hands in the dirt and the smell of freshly watered soil is just what I needed!  Some of these little babies have sprung forth and are stretching toward the sunlight.  I feel I am trying to do the same.  It makes me think that maybe my whole family is stretching forth.  Reaching for something better than what is offered in the way of media.  (Oops, sorry we are going for practical...)
So here is the practical.  If it is still cold and snowy at your house and you are racking your brain trying to come up with something to do that doesn't involve the Telly,  here are some suggestions!
  • Plant some seeds!
  • Turn up the heat, dig out your shorts and put them on!
  • Throw together a potato salad, uncover the BBQ and have hamburgers (see Nate's creation if you need some inspiration!)
  • Shovel off the deck and sit out there between 2:00 and 2:30 if it is in the sun you should enjoy some warmth!
  • Go bird watching, I have heard there are some robins in the area! And I spotted some mourning doves!
  • Start spring cleaning??? If you think it will help!
  • Get a pedicure
  • Visit a Maple Syrup set up. 
  • Wash your bedding and hang them on the line.  They will dry eventually and smell so great!
  • Open the windows!
  • Look through a seed catalogue and plan your yard!
If you have any ideas to add I would LOVE to hear them!
Hope you have a Spring filled day, I plan to!

  1. What wonderful ideas! I am going to dig out my pots from the shed today and plant some seed. I planted basil already and it is doing well, I can tell it will survive. Potato salad is on the agenda along with something grilled on the BBQ. I did get an idea from a women on a cooking application of grilling pineapple and peaches on the grill. She put honey on them to keep them from sticking to the grill. It's a must try this year. Thanks for the list, it helped motivate me to get started on some projects. love, Aunt Bev
