Spring is Here?

Hi everyone. Yes, it's me. I've been very lazy with my blog lately. Just don't seem to have any wanting to write a post. Should I give up this blog? I started this blog about one year ago, and really have enjoyed writing it.

Life here at our house has been so busy with the kids, hubby, and just plain old life. I'm sure you all can relate. I'm very excited that Spring is finally here. Yes, I can give up Winter finally, and you all know how much I love winter! Today we actually had snow flurries here in Northern New Jersey, and man was it chilly outside, too!

What a wonderful thing my hubby did for me this past week, he raked up the front yard! You see, my hubby NEVER goes out to rake on his own. We both raked this past October, but I had to light that fire under him. But this past Tuesday, he actually made my day, and went out on his own, and raked up the front yard, without me even having to ask! Now that is pure love! Thank you hunny, but please don't forget the back yard and the side yards!

With Spring being here, it means we have to get outside and start cleaning up the yard, planning our flower and veggie gardens, I so do enjoy doing all that. Last year I planted flower and veggie seeds in April. I planted the little seeds in those plastic green houses, keeping them warm in the house. My marigolds were the biggest and prettiest EVER!!! I plan on starting that real soon. It also means that we'll have to start thinking about opening the pool, ugh, what a nightmare we had last year! But I am hopeful that this year all will be well.

And, of course, with Spring being here, it also brings back so many memories of my Dad's tragic fall and then death. All those emotions are coming back to me now, and can just make me sad. Love your family to the fullest, be kind and thoughtful everyday, because tomorrow they may not be here!

Been missing your blog but I know how busy Life keeps us. I am ready for spring also. We are going to pick up the yard tomorrow and probably mow. I can't believe we are going to have to mow already...don't know if I am ready for that.

I will be praying for you and your family as you go through the spring with the memories of your dads death. Thank you for the reminder that life is short and that we should love our family to the fullest.

Hey Liz. Always love reading your blog (don't stop). Especially now that I don't get to see you as often. I know Spring is going to bring happy and sad memories for you. You're still going through "the firsts"... first Christmas, first Easter, etc. without Dad. We love you and are praying for you guys. Big hugs!!

So glad to see you are alive (and happy that your yard was raked -- Somma men are awesome!!!) and praying for you through this season of memories.

Love to you dear friend.

Hi Liz,
I have missed you lately. I struggle with all there is to do and all I want to get done, too. Life can keep us hopping. Take care.
