Spring seems to have struck!

Here in CR we are putting up record numbers for temperature!  I can't say that I am sorry.  Being unemployed for the first time in a long time I can't help but feel like this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the seasons to their fullest!  I am not sitting in an office longing to be outside, I can enjoy the sunshine to its fullest. 

The fun all started on Sunday.  I took a couple project items outside and spray painted them.  It was a bit windy, but when I found a good sheltered spot things just came right along.  I now have a wicker corner shelf in use, as well as a circular basket.  There was also a trip to Menards, for supplies.  Spencer built a light fixture for a seed sprouting area in the basement, and I hung a new floating shelf in the dining room.  If I were good at this whole blogging thing I would have come equipped with pictures, but I'm not so you'll have to use your imagination. 

Yesterday Spencer and I (but mostly Spencer) worked on the garden.  There is a buried trashcan in the yard for dog poo now.  Spencer read online that this is the most eco friendly way to dispose of waste.  The bottom of the trash can was removed.  He dug a hole and buried it. Then there was a test to be sure water drained out (not that we were worried living on a hill as we are.)  The bottom is covered in rock then in goes the poo!  Add some septic tank enzymes and things are breaking right down!  Next goal will be to teach Fletcher how to open it and poo directly into the hole!  We also made a new garden under the bird feeder.  Today I went for an outdoor jog, but that ended in blisters on my heels so tomorrow I'll have to wear different shoes. . . of course it's the perfect excuse to wear flip-flops today!

The good weather is supposed to continue all week, so maybe I'll have more good times to share soon!
