Beautiful Spring Day

Today we hit 79 degrees and made you think that Spring has really arrived. I know that Monday is officially the first day of Spring, but there is no harm in wanting it here faster.
I know with the beautiful weather we are starting to get busier which definitely makes the day go faster.
I hope every body that celebrates St. Patrick Day has had a safe and happy day. We had our corn beef and cabbage for supper which is a tradition at our house even though my husband is polish. He reminded me of that tonight.
My grandson Matt has his official soccer team shirt and he is no 3 on his team. He has his schedule for us to go watch him play and is anxious. He was so tired last night, but he still wanted to go. They have breakfast at school with mom one week and dad one week at 6:30 A.m. which just happen to be the same day as after school book sale, which he just couldn't miss. He had to check out the books because he needed a few new ones. Then he had soccer ball practice after that. It really made for a full day and he was tired even though he didn't want to admit it.
We are enjoying every nice day that we get.  Our week started off kooky with the snow, which didn't last long at all. Each day has been warmer since. Hopeful we won't have anymore snow at least. We need some rain to wash away some of the dirt off the street.
I found this picture on free .foto.com and it made you wish that it was in your yard. I just don't have a green thumb like my mother did. She could grow everything and even had a Christmas Catus that would bloom all year round. Her African Violets were beautiful.
It just made you wish they were yours. Have a great rest of the week.

Hi Shirley!
Wasn't it a beautiful day! It was to reach 83 today but I was busy in the house trying to work around our bathroom that is torn apart as we work on it. I can't wait to get it done so I can start washing in the bathroom sink instead of the kitchen. Sounds like your Grandson had one busy day...good for him. Bet he sleeps well tonight. I hope tomorrow is a sunny day for you again...it's to be musty for the next two days..yuck. Oh well...it's March ..what do I expect! Enjoy your Friday.

It's gorgeous here too. Nice 80s for the next week or two! YEAH!!! I went out tonight with no jacket. Yippee! I'm so glad your husband has the will to do things like going to watch your grandson. I wish him the best. And don't forget to take care of yourself Shirley!
Lots of love,
Caroline

Hi Shirley :) Wow, you guys had a heat wave, lol :) We got to around the low 60's here in our part of Michigan, which felt soooo nice! Today it is only going to be around 50. I'll still take that over the 30's any day :) Thanks for putting my Giveaway button on your sidebar, and helping to spread the word, I really do appreciate it. I will wish you good luck my Missouri friend!!

Warmest, your Michigan friend, Brenda

Hi Shirley! Glad you're enjoying a little Spring-like weather. It's 73 degrees here today and it feels so good to be able to open the windows and doors to let the fresh air and sunshine in (and to hear the birds). African Violets are a favorite of mine, sometimes I do very well with them and then there are those times when they just don't want to cooperate-- I keep trying:-)
Have a great weekend.

I'm really excited Spring is here, too. I am not a "cold weather person" at all.
Sounds like you are staying busy!
Have a fabulous weekend!
