20 Little Things to Look Forward to in Spring

Melissa at The Inspired Room has challenged us to create our list of 20 things we are looking forward to this Spring. Hop over to her blog here to see what other posters are anticipating. I hope you enjoy Spring wherever you are!

For we "northerners" who have dealt with a harsher-than-usual pounding of winter, we are especially delighted to look toward the delights of warmer weather, bright sunshine, and longer days!! Here is my Top 20.

*green grass

*the sound of lawn mowers

*the honking of geese flying to our neighborhood pond

*sunshiny days

*watching daffodils and tulips go from peeking bits of green life to waiting buds to full-blown showy flowers

*no more winter coats, gloves, hats, boots

*stepping outside, throwing my arms wide open, and sighing "Ahh"

*cleaning/straightening my garage with just a sweater on




*laughter of kids playing outside & riding bikes

*flowering trees

*drooling over outdoor goods in Sunday newspaper ads

*window shopping the outdoor goods at Target, Meijer, Walmart, Home Depot, Menards

*planning my flower beds

*shopping for my flower beds

*spending time with my college boys on their Spring break - if they spend time at home, that is!

*watching baseball with my husband on his new widescreen T.V.

*the opening of our brand spanking new YMCA on May 4th!!
