..itchin' to get outside....
Tuesday, March 09, 2010
It's been beautiful spring weather here in Saskatchewan lately--several degrees above freezing. We've had hardly any snow and now it's almost all gone! While I am sad for the farmers and fearful (selfishly) for my camping season, this has made me very antsy to get back outdoors. Every day I drive down my mile long driveway guaging just how muddy it is--is today the day I can get out and walk the drive without dragging 10 pounds of mud on my shoes? (but that could be a good workout for my thighs!! LOL!) Not yet, but very soon--I'm thinking/hoping by the weekend. I do know that I've already committed my kids (well, ok, I warned them) to cleaning up the yard this weekend--yard work--yahoo--but this spring I'm looking at it differently. I'm looking at it in "calories spent" not in "drudgery done". This year I will be out there with the kids cleaning up the yard from the spring melt not my husband!
Kinda, really. lovin' this new attitude I've gifted to me!!
