Spring is Here!

Spring is here in Kansas City....and it's full steam ahead! I can't believe how beautiful is has been this past week. And this weekend? Unbelievable! The flowers are starting to bloom, the temperatures have been delightful, and some of the perennials in my garden are starting to sprout up from the soil!

Found these gorgeous blooms while on a walk with the Wally dog - so pretty!
This morning when I woke up, I realized that I am getting a serious "spring cleaning" bug! I will be the first to tell you that I am not exactly a clean freak. My husband (who is the world's biggest nut about cleanliness) would absolutely agree! In fact, whenever he goes away for business, I revel in the joy and beauty of letting the dishes pile up in the sink and smile when I walk out the front door in the morning, bed unmade and pajamas on the floor. Of course, the evening before he returns from his trip becomes a super-serious cleaning frenzy night...but hey - add a few glasses of wine to that and it's not so bad!

I have a seriously huge cleaning and organizing project that must be tackled ASAP. The dreaded basement cleanout! For most people, this isn't too big of a task. But in my case, this is going to be a major undertaking. Prior to my dad getting sick, he and my mom were on the "cleaning out all the kids' stuff from the house" kick. The last time they came to visit, they brought with them a trailer of my stuff...a pretty large sized trailer. Which happened to be very, very full.

To put it in a more blunt way: my basement looks like a freaking horder house. No. Really.

Okay. So this isn't actually my basement. I'm too embarrassed to actualy post a photo of the disaster underneath my house. Who wants to come help? ;)
So, instead of actually making progress in the basement, which I should be doing, my plan for the rest of the evening is to watch Mean Girls on Netflix and relax. After all, those boxes aren't going to go anywhere!
