Minor Depression

Thursday was such a beautiful day--blue sky, warm temps (81! but no humidity and a gentle breeze).  The daffodils are blooming in my garden and the crab apple tree shows signs of being about to burst into bloom.  Other perennials are just barely braving an exploratory poke of green out from under their winter blankets.  The grass is nice and green.  Of course, the weeds are already thriving.

There is a heavy layer of road salt grime over the car and garage floor.  The windows are super dirty and there is plenty of dust to chase around.  My son was complaining that he needs new reading glasses, so I will assume he just doesn't see it (even though I am sure that dust blindness is one of those things that resides on the Y chromosome).

I miss my neat and easy to clean place in Florida and the lawn service.  It is taking me a while to adjust.  There is much to be done...starting with arranging for a new furnace.  Not a happy thought.

BUT, I am seeing friends and the grandkids are on their way to spend the weekend so I need to cheer up.

  1. Sounds normal to me. Yes, lawn work seems so against the freshness of spring. I wish the first month it just turned green and then started growing the next month!

  3. That Y chromosome carries many, many abnormalities! Relax for a while -- the dirt will still be there, and you get rid of it then. Sounds like nice spring weather!

  4. Sometimes things feel overwhelming.....take a step back and just breathe. It will all get done in due time. Then you will feel proud of your accomplishments!

  5. Spring has its own thorns doesn't it? Just tackle one thing at a time. It will all get done and then you can enjoy. A trip to the library may be called for.

  6. I really think it is a male thing. They don't see the dirt and sometime that can be a good thing! Hope the grandchildren can distract you.

  7. Hell if we can't find the mustard or jar of pickles in the refrigerator, how in the world can you expect us to see something as small as dust or salt grime on the garage floor.

  8. Yes, I think it is a male thing. I was gone for two weeks and while the house wasn't a complete disasters, the dust bunnies had significantly multiplied!

    Glad you had a good trip home and spring is in full bloom. Enjoy your weekend with the grandchildren!

  9. Yes, that all does sound daunting. Pick something easy to start with. That works for me. Then I just keep going.
    Grandkids for Mother's Day... sounds right.

  10. Happy Mother's Day to you, Olga! I agree with Linda about taking baby steps first to get things done. For now, I hope you will enjoy all the spring flowers.

  11. You're readjustng to VT after walking on the beach. I think Bob sees dust more than I do - he cleans it up, too. Unfortunately, he doesn't hire out! Have a happy Mother's Day, Olga. It's so cold here in Denver - snow on the way!

  12. Good luck with the furnace! I did that at mom's place. They really needed one. We did it here, too. Also, three rooves on our last three homes!
