Busy Days

Our weather here in Colorado in Spring is ever changing. Three days of rain and snow are followed by three days of sunshine and seventy degrees. I've been taking the boys all sorts of places to enjoy the sunny days. We've been to the Denver Zoo, Littleton Museum, the Hudson Gardens, and the park nearby several times.

I've also started Spring Cleaning. I'm trying to do one room a day, except the Kitchen which I'm planning several days for. For me, this means cleaning everything from the ceiling fans to the curtains, blinds, furniture, drawers, cabinets and everything down to the baseboards and floors. So far I've completed the Living Room, Dining Room, Family Room and some of the Kitchen. That leaves the rest of the Kitchen for this weekend and the Laundry Room & Hall Closet for Monday. Then the main floor will be done.

Upstairs I have the Bedrooms and Bathrooms and the Loft. Luckily, I gutted the loft a few weeks ago, so it's not too bad. Doing the Bedrooms also means going through all the clothes for me and the boys. They are growing so fast! Dumpling mostly fits into what Pumpkin wore last year. My clothes are a disaster. I'm so in between sizes and seasons and all. It stinks. I'm tired of what actually fits and have tons of clothes that I'm still too big for. It's pathetic, so I'm kind of dreading it all.

Finally, I'll tackle the Basement. That's always so much fun. Hah. So, I'm cutting back time on the computer for a bit as I'm working on these things. I'll be back.

Oh my goodness - your boys are growing so fast! And they are just about the cutest two together. What a precious time in their lives. Thanks for sharing your outings with us. ~Adrienne~

I absolutely LOVE that first picture of your boys walking and holding hands. So sweet.

I also love how blue the sky is in that second photo!

Weird weather week here too...snow, sun, and today we're still at 38degrees. I just drove past the ballfield and the boys were out playing baseball with their coats over their uniforms! Springtime in the Rockies!

I am hugely motivated to spring clean right now, but am overly busy with some volunteer stuff. I'm hoping things settle down in a week or two and I can tackle a few rooms before my kids are out for the summer. I prefer to purge the stuff in their rooms when they're not around to shed tears over what I'm getting rid of. ;)

Hurry back!!!

I love the picture of the boys!
I took the bull by the horns recently, and finally finished my spring cleaning as well. Its the first spring since we've been married that I haven't been in the early stages of morning sickness, or taking care of a brand new infant.
My spring cleaning list looked very much like yours, and it feels so good to know that not only is my house clean, but also drawers, closets, cupboards, the fridge and freezer.
I tackle our basement this week (haveing nowhere good to sew is a huge motivator!), so I'll be thinking of you, and praying you can accomplish your work, as I go about mine!
Have a beautiful week-
~*~Bonnie ~*~
