Spring Cleaning is in the Air!


Happy Monday!  Dogs let us sleep in to 8am today! Completely welcomed and doesn’t happen often. Today I’ve switched to tea instead of coffee, especially since we FINALLY found the special Wedding Blend Tea from Inspirations Tea Room in OKC. I had bought some on a trip last year, lost it in the RV and while cleaning it out after this last trip, we found it! It is delicious!

Anyway, it gave me a lot more of a wake up kick than the coffee. I’ve already done a load of laundry, picked up and vacuumed the family room, and am getting ready to tackle the kitchen. Seriously a great start to any Monday!

Since this house is too big for the two of us, I’m hiring a cleaning crew tomorrow. Top to bottom spring cleaning. I’m very excited!  We’re not dirty, it’s just hard to keep up with this 3300 sq foot home, especially with my medical conditions.

Beautiful day for Mother’s day yesterday. A drive in the country in ‘Zeno’, our Morgan type British roadster, and a picnic. Completely recharged us. Went to the local farmers market and picked up some lamb shanks (non GMO and organic or course) from a great vendor, Holly Brook Farms. Jim made Osso Bucco for dinner. Plating didn’t get high scores, but it was delicious!

My girls and granddaughters sent Mother’s Day gifts, a beautiful antique necklace with “Mimi” on it and a stunning bracelet with Mimi. I love those babies!

Jim, my love, spoiled me yesterday.  With picnic, drive, lovely dinner, and jewelry! I LOVE dream catchers. There is something about them that just pull me in. The more delicate, the more I like them. He got me dream catcher earrings, matching bracelet, and a stunning pounded copper and silver turquoise necklace, that remind me of a dream catcher. He is an amazing man!

On the list for the remainder of the day, to attack tidying up as much as possible.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and get into the ‘Spring’ frame of mind!  Spring is finally here, after a VERY long cold winter, and it probably won’t last long as Summer temps are encroaching fast.
