Spring has sprung at the beach!
I woke up to tap tap tapping on my window this morning. I lay in bed wondering who would be tapping on my bedroom window and how many plants they tramped in the flower beds that front of my windows. From the left side of my bed I peered out the window, no one tapping. I peaked out the window on the right side of my bed, no one tapping. Iím still hearing the tapping so it must be someone tapping on my bathroom window which is really strange because my bathroom windows are pretty high. I throw a t shirt on and creep into my bathroom and find a big blackbird is sitting in the Wisteria outside the bathroom window tapping away on the window, what a great alarm clock!!
Trees are in bud, daffodils are in bloom every where and the grass needs to be cut already. Spring is my favorite time of year. Being able to cut flowers from the yard, hang bed linens on the clothesline and throw open all the windows to bring the sea scented air in is so wonderful.
Spring means spring clean up too. Taking advantage of my son being in NYC for the week on his junior trip means no cooking and a lot less laundry I decided to use my freed up time to tackle cleaning the awnings on the house. What are really pink awnings are grimed up appearing more greenish grayish. After a few hours climbing up and down the ladder and lots of scrubbing the awnings are bright pink again.
The way the pink tints the sunlight as it comes through the windows is amazing. Kinda like seeing things through pink tinted glasses LOL. A good window washing finished the job.
The next chore for the day was cleaning up the chicken coop and laying fresh shavings for the chicks. In addition to raking the ground and laying fresh shavings their laying boxes got a good scrubbing and I planted an area with some clover for the chicks to snack on. They should love that.
Tomorrow the Koi pond gets tackled. Leaves from the winter need raked out, water plants need trimming, and the pump needs to be put back in.
Whew Ö. Good thing spring invigorates me.
