The long awaited Spring is just around the corner...
cross your fingers,
your eyes, your toes, your legs....
cross everything in hopes this really comes true.
If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind??
Well in our neck of the woods it's going to be very, very interesting what our Spring has in store for us. I must admit not every winter did we have such extreme cold with wind chills below zero. And too, this is the 3rd snowiest winter on record in the Chicagoland area. Everybody is 'over' winter .... bring on Spring!!!
We know that Spring has to come. Probably in the past we didn't give much thought to it. As the seasons go we all know what follows next. But when you have something that is so severe, it's hard to imagine what will come with warmer temperatures?
You can believe with 2 doggies and 8 paws that when all this snow thaws ... I will have paw prints to clean off the hallway tile, and dog shakes to wipe off the walls!
It depends on how quickly it all thaws ... rivers nearby go into flood stage if it rains 3" .... we have about 2 feet of snow on the ground right now ... what surprises does mother nature have on those closer to those tributaries?
The ware and tear of freezing and blowing of heavy snow and ice have encased our house for almost 100 days. The house is 15 years old.... will the paint be peeling as ice begins to melt and start dripping? What will we find near the foundation? How have the trees and bushes weathered through it all?
All of those things are POSSIBLE.
But they are all things I have no control over.
I can prevent some things from making my home worse, but I can't stop others from occurring.
But I can DO. something that is unexpected. As part of the fun being the SHINE Girl for March (read more about that here) and to finish off this first week, I plan on decorating someone's corner of the world yellow.
How lucky for me to have the right tools to make this POSSIBLE.

It's Friday, and time to
Brighten Someone's Day!!!
