~ Spring?? ~

 Good Morning
~  Friends  & Folk ~ can the weatherman be true?
will we indeed have sun & temps in the 70's today??

if that is indeed factual,
then I will be throwing everything into the washer and hanging out loads upon loads of laundry!
{ I enjoy hanging my laundry on the line, as my mother, aunts and sister have taught me well. }

~ when all that has been wind-blown dry, folded and put away ~
 I may take a look at my wintering gardens and see if I spy any sprouts.

Taking full advantage of the warmer weather today ~
I'd like to get a jump on my Spring Cleaning.

Only after all has been said & done,
will I return to my needle and thread....

I want to be just like her when I grow up...

Oh Spring!
please come quick...I'm desperate for warm breezes
& sunshine on my face...everyday!
I want to stitch on the porch swing
and listen to the whippoorwills sing...
Pick fresh Strawberries and salad greens...
wear cotton skirts & t-shirts.
Watch the Sheets blow in the breeze
and hear the buzzing of the Bees...
Oh Spring, Sprung!!!
