Spring Cleaning and Other Changes

It really and truly is spring here. Granted, we could have a freak late-spring snow storm...but I don't think it'll happen this year.

The windows are all open--well, all of the ones that will stay open! Having a 110-year-old house means that some windows have minds of their own. But that's on the list of things to fix this summer! But windows are open, breezes are coming in, and I can hear the birds ... and the squirrels ... and the ambulance sirens! Another drawback of living in an historic district in a downtown area: I live two blocks form the hospital, so I get to hear the happenings. But at least I know that if any home-improvement injuries befall us, the hospital is within walking-wounded distance.

I figured that as long as I had to clean my room (see previous post) and start to tackle other "real-life" spring cleaning, I'd do the same here. So I've rotated some of the blogs I read--moved some new ones in and others out for the time being. Take a look; perhaps you'll find one you haven't read before!

In other news, RicRacSally is the latest Etsy shop to leave the CSST. If you want to know why, just ask. I have nothing to hide. But it's for the best. I have too much going on in my life to deal with one more thing. I will miss the friends I made on the daily thread, but I want them to know that I'm still around.

And now, I think it's time for lunch and some creating.

Happy spring everyone :)

What beautiful pictures RicRac! I love the colors. Spring is so late this year due to all of the rain and COLD....a lot of the trees don't even have their leaves on yet! I'm jealous ;o)!
