Bring on Spring: 3 Things Only Adults Get Excited About

My Diary

kpiercegardenI might be slightly ahead of myself with this post, but here it is anyway. The sun is shining and the snow is melting which has me dreaming of spring and all of the things I can’t wait to do. We closed on our first home on August 30th 2013 which didn’t leave us with a whole lot of “fun in the sun” time. Now that we are (hopefully!) through the worst of winter I can start planning some of the things that I can’t wait to do this spring.

Start a Garden and Landscape

I have to admit, I pretty much have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to gardening but that hasn’t stopped me from accomplishing something before. I have visions of a delicious vegetable garden that we can go out and pull from for dinner at night. As I mentioned before, I have no idea what I’m doing so don’t ask me yet what will actually be in my garden. I’ll get back to you once I’ve stalked a few New England vegetable garden websites!

We also have these giant bushes in the front of our house. I’m sure at one point they were nice, however they seriously interfere with my visions of a flower garden. I’d love to remove them this summer, edge out the flowerbed, and get creative with color. This should be quite the project since these bushes have got to be 30+ years old!

Painting the House

Once upon a time our house was green aluminum siding. Not the prettiest green, but acceptable. Now our house is this awful faded green/yellow mess of a color. Unfortunately this year started off rough with me being laid off so our finances probably won’t allow us to paint, but I can dream, right? I envision a nice dark brown with crisp white trim. Or an elegant beige color with white trim. We’ll see if dreams come true this year.

Removing Wallpaper

So this isn’t exactly something I’m looking forward to doing, but I am excited at the idea of having no more wallpaper for my daughter to peel off where the glue has loosened over the years. When we first moved in we stripped the wallpaper and refinished the walls in the living and dinning rooms. I love the color and fresh paint so I am looking forward to the same crisp clean walls in the hallway. This is going to be a BIG project, but one I can’t wait to be done with.

What projects are topping your spring to-do list?
