5 Minutes

Is all the time I have because I vowed to go to bed at 10pm. I often say "I'm going to go to bed at ___ time but I often fall short.

Today was a 'stay at home' day. The kiddos were tuckered out so we spent our morning playing with play dough, blocks, their laptops, and watching a short episode of 'Bear in the Blue House'.

After a snack we enjoyed the beautiful weather outside (a high of 68 degrees today). The kids rode bikes and played in the sandbox which has been dormant for months. And, they 'helped' me rake up a pile of leaves by our front door steps.

Being outside today gave me the Summer itch.

I love Summer.

The hint of it motivated me to work on the yard to prepare it for new growth. But alas, we could get snow this weekend so my hopes for new blooms, fresh veggies and green grass will have to wait awhile.


  1. It's about 80 something here today. That makes me grumpy. It shouldn't be 80 in February. I have a summer itch too ... but mine is to come and spend it in cool CO ... what do you think?

  2. The weather is teasing us here too. It rained the other night which was the first preciptiation that we've had besides snow since like november. And it got to 46 yesterday which is the highest in temp since Octobter. Needless to I am soooooo with you on the summer thing!! I wish spring would at least hurry up!
