Now I remember...

...why I like living in the southeast!

The weekend was absolutely beautiful, near 70 degrees on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Saturday was spent with my mom, helping her clear out a storage room so it can become a bedroom for my grandma (who's moving in with mom on Monday). Friday and Sunday we spent outdoors: clearing and burning brush, repairing the back deck, and sinking a new post for our bird feeders. I also transplanted some lavender and rosemary from pots to the new herb garden bed by the front walk. Mmmmm - the lovely smells you get now just coming to our front door! I plan to add other herb-y perennials like thyme, Greek oregano, tarragon, chives, and mint as the days warm up a little more. I expect we'll have some more cold weather before too long (our local meterologist calls long-range forecasting "voodoo-land," and apparently voodoo-land shows another arctic blast coming in before the end of the month), but right now I'll take all these 70 degree days I can get!

It's supposed to be nice all week here, too. Honestly, if I could live in this climate year-round, I would love it!

Well, we lived in Miami for three years. Swimming on New Years Day was a novelty. But I found myself missing fall and spring desperately. There's something so glorious about early spring!
