I can’t wait

After a few weeks of cold and a couple of inches of snow, it looks Spring will be arriving soon. It’s sunny and the snow has begun to melt. Yesterday I went shopping and the stores have Easter and Summer decorations. The session of gardening has plants, orchids, packages of seeds. I was looking at the gnomes, fairies, colorful pots I just want to buy everything. I love Spring and Summer it makes me happy!

I want to begin planting my flower garden however, we still have a few weeks of winter and I’m sure it will snow again. The wait is annoying.  I’m going to try again to plant roses. Sadly, they don’t grow in my backyard however some of my neighbors have roses.

This is a beautiful Sunday and I will love to be outside. Yeah, it’s sunny but still chilly outside. Meanwhile, I can start a list for my garden and the changes I’m making to my home.  Some of the projects from last year got postponed it’s time to get it done.

SoCS~”above/below”

Until the middle of January, we have a mild winter. Then the winds and the front cold air starts and boom we are bundle head to toe. I was watching the weather channel and there is a storm in every part of the USA.  The past two weeks have been the worse with frigid cold weather. No above temperature just below.

My husband’s car didn’t start the engine and the battery is dead. We have been sharing my car and he has to drive me to work. The kids at the school have inside recess and they are getting cranky and loud. We all need the fresh air.  My poor dog goes outside and he ran back to the house.

Yesterday we broke the record.  This cold feels similar to sharp needles in your face. I feel like a popsicle. Also, my knees have been suffering from this weather.  

As you can see, we have good news it’s going to warm up. Yeah, it’s going to be in the double digits. I’m loving the word “above”.

#JusJoJan prompt the 31st “Candy”

I always have a sweet tooth. I crave candies all the time.  I have type 2 diabetes and I need to be more careful.  I have to take three different types of pills to control my sugar levels. So, you can imagine when those cravings start it’s tough to stop. It has been a challenge. I clean up my house of all sweets. However, my big challenge it’s at work. They always have sweets in the lounge and it’s tough to ignore. My favorite candy is chocolate kisses. And with Valentine’s day approaching who can resist. My family knows best and they won’t buy anything, but I’m worried when I’m at work.  Sorry, I’m weak.  I loved chocolate kisses and yes, too weak. Hooray for candy!
