Spring Clean Up

Some places are too wet to tackle but others are just right for moving things to more convenient locations and getting rid of the accumulation that comes with running the farm. Old seed bags to be burned, metal and iron loaded up for the scrap yard recycling, firewood stacked and gravel spread on holes and wet spots in the barnyard took a big chunk of the day, but, WOW, it sure looks better.

LuAnn began the annual kitchen spring cleaning today, It was about 69 degrees so she opened the windows and enjoyed her task. She always calls chores like that "just puttering" but she sure accomplishes a lot for "just puttering".

The garden and the flower beds are calling to her. I figure the lawn will need to be mowed within a week if it stays dry. It is getting high and needs rolling but that will have to wait another year.

Sable has worn a circular path around the perimeter of the house. It has LuAnn a bit annoyed but we know she is just doing her job which is to stay as close to us as possible. Seems like she follows us as we move from room to room, always on guard at the door closest to us. That must be generations of breeding that makes her so protective.

One of my favorite Bible verses is "To every thing there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven." This time of year always reminds me of the wonder of God as the seasons change and the colors of spring come out to meet us after a long hard winter.

Maybe we are going to leave winter behind finally....maybe it is time for spring. Enjoy the rebirth of earth....I always do.
