East end spring
But the town is showing signs of waking up now, even if it's more a matter of mental adjustment than anything else. We're beginning to look toward summer with the accompanying busy lives that come with it, and one can feel the anticipation in the air. Landscapers are already busy prepping lawns and hedges, people can be seen in their yards on the weekends, cleaning out the flower beds and painting the window trim. There's noise everywhere! Machines and vehicles working around ever corner. At our house we're working on a bathroom "refreshing" - not a complete reno but replacing a shower and tiling a floor, which of course leads to painting so the whole thing looks newer. There's something about spring that makes us ready to jump into projects and get things done.
I'm also getting the "yard-sale bug" and faithfully going through the listings every week in the paper. Surely there will be treasures to find as people go through their spring-cleaning frenzies
I welcome spring this year, not for the weather, which is already wonderful, but for the pleasure of it all that comes along with the calendar dates.
