March First! YAY! January and February are dreaded months for me. They are the months that are typically so dreary and I want to hide underneath a rock until they are over. But we have been so blessed this winter with wonderful warm weather! And yes, I know we could still get snow in March and April. Don’t rain on my parade. Instead, celebrate that we’ve made it to March and we have much to look forward to in the months to come!
LIKE…spending time outside AND barefoot with friends! Not to mention getting your toes ready! (reminder time….get your feet ready now by smothering in vaseline and then putting socks on. do this several days in a row and use a pumice stone and you’ll be good to go!)
Keep a watch out for critters when cleaning out flowerbeds and shrubs. I don’t like spiders and snakes….how ’bout you?
If you haven’t already….be wearing your summer shorts now! (in the house if you are in the cold states) That way, if you have a couple of inches or pounds that winter gave you, you can work on losing those ahead of time.
One last but certainly not least item of importance. Storm season has already began as we saw yesterday. Make your tornado plans now. Know where to go if you need to take cover. We do not yet have a safe room or cellar, so we have a designated interior “closet”. Recommended things for your designated place: pillows (to shield you body of debris), blankets, bike helmets and winter coats (again ~ for protection from debris)extra dog leashes, food & water, a whistle or bell (to let people know where you are), flashlights and a battery-powered radio or weather radio. It doesn’t take much to get these items together. Hopefully you will never need them, but better to be prepared.
Start planning now for a fun and safe Spring and Summer! Why? Because it’s MARCH!!!! ♥♥♥
