I am sitting in front of my big window in my living room looking out at the beautiful scenery outside. What a lovely afternoon it is to. I am getting ready to go outside for the rest of the afternoon and the evening. I just can’t stay inside on such a lovely day as today. Who knows, it might be rainy and real windy tomorrow.
A lot of my neighbors nearby are out mowing their lawns already and I can’t believe they are doing that already. We don’t mow our yard until the end of this month. I haven’t been to my mailbox yet to see what the mailman left me this morning. I did some grocery shopping earlier after I sent my little granddaughter off to school. She is in the second grade and she is always making me something pretty in Art class each day. Today she told me before she left that she would be bringing me home something very special that she made in Art this week.
I can’t wait to see what she is bringing me. I have a lot of her art work hanging on the fridge in the kitchen and around the rooms in the house here. She is quite an artist at the age of 8 right now. I can’t believe how much she is changing in looks every day. She was looking a lot like her mother but now she is looking so much like her father these days. She has quite a few of his facial expressions also.
I have been looking around for pretty flowers to plant in the front yard and to put in some containers for the porch. I am still looking because I haven’t found the variety of flowers that I want yet. I do know that I will have a small flower garden underneath the big living room window.
I am going to be planting English ivy and miniature rose bushes in containers and a window box for the outside of the house. Well the front yard is getting mowed as I write this post on my blog site for all of you to read today. I am still following a lot of blog sites and still checking out new ones to follow. I love doing that and I love what I am reading on the sites that I find.
I love blogging period because it is a lot of fun to write as often as I can. It is even more inspiring to keep doing so when I see how many people have stopped by my blog to read what I have written today. I try to think of something different to write about and not to dwell on the same topics all of the time.
When I am upset about something I do not write that day as I would not want to use my blog site to sound off about what has upset me. I think that would depress the readers who stop by and visit my site.
I cannot wait for our city to start putting on the free music concerts in the square. They start at the end of this month and go all through the summer until the end of September. Each month they have one free concert and I have went several times with my neighbor and friend who lives next door to me.
Our little granddaughters when they go with us always get up and dance to the music with the other people. I am sad to say that I have never learned to dance but I do enjoy watching the other people dance to the music. Someday before to long I do want to learn how. I want to enjoy what I have been missing out on all these years.
The yard has now been mowed and looks so lovely. Time to get out the lawn chairs and the umbrella to sit in the yard. I need a yard swing though. There are so many things that I need for the yard this summer so I need to make a list and start buying these items. It will be yard sale time soon also and I love to stop and look to see what kind of bargains I can come across.
You can save a lot of money if you go yard sale shopping like I do from time to time. I have always been surprised at the items people will put in their yard sales because they no longer have a use for them. I have come across many beautiful pieces of furniture and dishes that people no longer want.
My friend usually has a yard sale during the summer. I haven’t had one yet but I do need to in order to get rid of the surplus items that have cluttered up my closet space. This would be a good way to make some extra money and to clear up my three closets. Yes, I think I will put that down on my to do a list.
I have to start spring cleaning this weekend. My son and granddaughter will be away for the weekend and this will give me the perfect time to get rid of all the dust bunnies from under the beds and the furniture.
Maybe I can get some of the clutter out of the closet and put into some boxes so I can put them into the storage shed for the yard sale this summer.
Since I have been sitting here writing my post to all of you I have also been thinking about what to have for the evening meal. I should have decided on what to fix tonight much earlier in the day but I have to admit I got side tracked with other things to do.
I have already rearranged the furniture in the living room for the 5th time in the last two months. When people come to visit me the living room is always different from the last time they were here to see me. But being the polite people they are and friendly to they never ask me why I keep changing the furniture around so much. I think I do it because I am not satisfied with the way it is after I move it. I usually move it again after a few weeks.
My son told me that I should leave the furniture where it is so I don’t hurt myself trying to change it. I know he has a good point in telling me that but I have always moved the living room furniture around even when he was little and growing up.
The wind is blowing so nicely through the trees outside and it feels so warm coming through the living room windows. I love the wind and the sound of it when it blows through the trees. Now that warm weather is here I do hope that people will be able to get out and enjoy it. This winter has been so hard on so many people around the United States. We here in Tennessee have had cold weather but nothing like the people have in the Mid western states and on the east coast have had. They have endured so much brutal cold icy and snowy weather this past winter. I know that they are glad that it is over and that the warm weather has finally arrived. I hope that they can put their lives back together again and my prayers are with them as they face the difficult task before them.
School is out now for the day and the children are all outside playing and riding bikes up and down the street in front of my house. Next weekend is Easter and I have eggs to color for the Easter Egg hunt that we are having here where I live.
I have a lot of things to get done before the night is over so I will stop writing in my blog and get busy.
Until I write again everybody stay happy, keep safe and keep blogging.
Bye for now,
