Everyone has their favorite time of year.
Spring is my favorite season.
This week's Ten Things Tuesday is all about the reasons I love spring.
It's only two weeks away!
So, in no particular order, here we go:
1. The weather starts to warm up.
It is not super hot yet.
2. The days are getting longer.
Not due to daylight savings time. We all know saying that is why the days are longer is a crock of crap. But, there is more light this time of year.
3. Not a ton of bugs yet.
Love warm weather, but not the bugs that come with. Spring is a happy medium.
4. Gardening time!
You know me. I grow a big garden and it is just about time to plant peas, onion, and cool weather veggies like cabbage and cauliflower. And I get to start planning what all to buy and where to stick it. Where the sun shines, of course.
5. Trees and bushes start to get their leaves.
Last summer it got so dry and hot and I fear for the health of my willow tree. It's not looking so good.
6. No coats OR boots.
Yay! No boots means I get to put the towel away that hangs out on the floor all winter to collect snow. No coats means not getting the zipper caught in my hair because I forgot(or didn't feel like) to put it up. I may need a haircut.
7. Morel hunting
That doesn't come til late spring around here, but it is something to look forward to. Morels are wild mushrooms, for those of you that don't know.
8. Kiddo's braces are paid off!
How awesome is that? An extra $162/month not going out is going to be nice. This month is the last payment. I am a little excited.
9. I get to clean my oven.
It is self-cleaning.( Why is it called self-cleaning? All you do is turn it to a really high temp. so the icky stuff burns off. The oven does nothing. You have to turn it to cleaning cycle.) I never clean it during the winter cause the house is all closed up and I like the windows open when I clean it.
Which is bad when something boils over in the oven. I just throw salt on it and call it good til spring.
10. Rainbow gets to go outside.
What is your favorite part of spring?
