Signs of Spring

Good morning! I am drinking my second cup of coffee and have been reading  many blog posts from my enormous list of "blogs I love to read" list. I have a lot of catching up to do and I can see that I have missed out on many wonderful postings over the past few months.

 I hope everyone is doing well and finding signs of spring, no matter how small they may seem, in your neck of the woods. Though it is cold here in southern NH, the forecast appears to have some warmer temperatures coming by the end of the week. By warmer I am talking high 40's, maybe low 50's. I will take it!

What is on your to do list today? Today I will do some spring cleaning. I noticed yesterday that my back porch is actually retaining enough solar heat that I can spend some time cleaning it off and organizing. Really looking forward to meals on my porch again. I also love to sew out there! I love the sounds of spring--birds chirping and yes--even the distant (emphasis on distant) sound of a lawn mower!

There is so much to look forward to in the weeks ahead. My youngest daughter is graduating from high school, we have some last minute accepted student days to attend at various colleges, and my oldest daughter is engaged so we have a wedding to plan! I also want to get to Martha's Vineyard to visit my middle daughter as it is so peaceful there before the summer crowds arrive. For today though, I will be looking for signs of spring. Happy Spring everyone!
