“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” —Fredrick Koeing

Welcome April. Buds on the lilac tree. Sun streaming through the bushes. Blue sky and puffy white clouds. The promise of rain soon. Chilly mornings...Spring is definitely here.

I love April. Yes, it is my birth month, however I also look at it as the beginning. The beginning of Spring. The beginning of "new" weather.

I wish I was into Spring cleaning the way other people are. I read about people organizing drawers and purging closets. I however, decide to deep clean. Every year. So far this year I have cleaned out the washing machine (it looks almost new!), cleaned the dishwasher, pulled out the stove and cleaned under/behind it....I may still have piles but you can eat off my floors!

Here we go.

Welcome April!


  1. Pretty pictures! Because some blooms are early this year it will be one of those years when my lilac and tulips bloom at the same time. One of my favorite bouquet combinations. ;)

  2. Love the lilac they smell so good! Happy Birthday Jerrie!


Comments are great. They are like the Grande, 2-pump, Cinnamon-dolche, non-fat latte of the computer...Really! Thanks for the bloggin' coffee!
