Well hello there Internet world.
It’s been a while.
A long while actually. I honest to goodness thought it had only been a couple weeks since I had checked in here.
I guess the end of a long winter had me feeling all blah and out of sorts.
But it seems we’ve finally turned a corner up here in the frozen tundra we call home, and for that I am grateful.
Not that our winter wasn’t without its perks.
Romeo found that all that white stuff made the game of hide and seek significantly easier:
And on a more important note, we were also able to spend some time teaching the Mini the importance of proper snow management:
We will however have to work on her speed for next winter. I suppose it’s true that you do get what you pay for around here, and Goldfish only get you so far.
In any event, we are now helping to usher out the old and ho hum by giving our little house a facelift. Well, an internal one anyways.
Warmer temps means open windows which means bring on the paint baby:
(Disclaimer: this is not a job we’ve been encouraging the Mini to assist us with. The little tornado is better served with less…um…delicate tasks.)
There’s nothing quite like a fresh coat of paint. It makes everything seem new and exciting. And of course it makes non freshly painted rooms much shabbier.
We call this around here “motivation.”
It’s been quite cathartic to not only see less snow and more green outside, but to start to personalize our “life” on the inside.
It just reinforces how much I love love love this time of year, because everything just feels so new again.
The grass is growing, gardens are being started (or built. I’m looking at you, Hubby…), and everyone is finally able to go outside without a million layers that you just have to take off once you get inside because the heat is on and you’d literally melt.
Did I mention I’m excited about spring?
I am quite ready for warm days, new life, no shoveling, and all that happiness that springtime brings.
Now if you’ll excuse me, the Mini is down for bed, and I have a date with a paintbrush.
