I really can't complain about our winter this year since it's going to be in the 50's later this week, but I am so ready to get outside & get to work. Our last 2 mts. have been so strange for Jim & I. Surgery for both of us within 7 weeks & this past week Little Chicken Chick & I were both down with the flu. Going from being very active to recooping has been very hard.
I actually did some spring cleaning while we tried to get over the flu. I was tired of sitting & felt the need to be productive. Closets got cleaned & sorted, papers went where they were suppose to, not in my never ending pile & I started to get the tax stuff together. Our house is small so I get to feeling very cramped when we are stuck inside. If I had my way I'd get rid of half the stuff we have, but I live with two pack rats so I have to find a happy medium we can live with as a family. The next big job will be cleaning the playroom, but it will have to be done when LCC is at school. The child refuses to get rid of anything.
So, I will start my first of several list of things to do when it starts warming up. I got all of my saved seed out so I can see what I need & I will be rotating some crops this year & planting some things I haven't grown before. The chicken flock needs to be started again & we really need to secure the coop this time to keep another flock from being killed by wild dogs. More herbs, more flowers...yes, I feel better this year so I have alot of plans & I better keep on with my spring cleaning so as soon as I can get outside I will.
