March 1st

Reasons to love March:

*The First Day of Spring
*Jonquils and Daffodils
*The Mr.'s birthday
*My birthday
*Windbreakers instead of heavy coats
*Spring Break!!
*New baby animals  (Baby Baxter this year!)
*Spring sports: track, baseball and softball, golf, tennis
*Putting gloves, mittens, and wooly scarves away
*The beginning of 4th nine weeks
*Buds on trees
*Longer evenings of daylight
*Dusting off the bike
*Capri pants and sandals
*St. Patrick's Day-- parades, green beer, and corned beef and cabbage

I was going to add spring cleaning, but that is not my favorite.  I mean, I like it when it is done.  The doing-- not so much.  This year, the Mr. and I are washing the windows.  I'm pretty sure that we haven't washed every window in the house since the year before my stroke--and that was 4 years ago, which makes it five years! We're probably lucky to be able to see out!

Oh, what dates for yours and the mr's birthdays?! Mine is March 14!

I sure wish we got sandal weather in March. We need to wait until May for that!

Dust off the bike, you got that right, sista!
