 Almost Spring

1. What do you love most about Spring?  Spring is my favorite time of year.  The flowers start blooming, the weather is really pleasant and the time changes so that we get to have longer days.

2. If you’re lucky enough to have a Spring Break, what will you do to enjoy it?  I'm fortunate enough to have two of them, although I wish they were in the same week.  I work in education so I will have one week off of work, but still have a couple classes to take and then a week later it will be the reverse.  I'd really love to do some exploring outdoors whether that's going on a hike or enjoying our beaches.

3. What is your favorite flower? By far my most favorite are tulips.  To me, they are gorgeous and perfect, even if they don't stay around for very long.  My parents used to have a house with the walkway lined with them as you walked to the front door.  That always made me smile looking at them.

4. Do you have a garden?  If so, what do you grow?  I have a dead garden.  Does that count?  I know, so sad!  The weeds have just taken over.

5. Share one thing that you hope to accomplish during Spring.  A project that I plan to work on is to pull up bricks from my backyard and look at putting some new ones down to freshen up the look of the patio area.  When I bought the house, the bricks were falling apart and wearing down with age.

6. Do you do Spring cleaning? I do, but the generally is just limited to my garage and going through all the paperwork in my office.  But I do try to go through those areas at least once a year.

7. What is your weather *really* like right now? Don't hate me if the rest of you are living in bad weather, but it was in the 80's this weekend.  What can I say ... southern California is known for it's mild temps.  We pay for it though since it costs a fortune to live here.

8. Share one photo that you’ve taken during the month of March.  This photo is one of my kitties, Sasha.  I was laying on my bed not feeling well one day and she crawled up next to me.  Her sister, Monique, looks just the same.  She's adorable, isn't she?

9. What’s your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon?  I do love going out in the backyard, sitting in a lounger with a great book and enjoy the sunshine with iced tea.  The other thing I love is sitting out on a beach and watch the waves crash in.  That feels so serene to me.

10. If you could spend the day doing anything in your city, what would you do?  I live in the northern part of San Diego County.  In my city, there's absolutely nothing to do.  But in the city of San Diego, which starts at about 15 minutes from my house, are beaches, museums, the zoo, Sea World and a ton of other touristy places. I'd love it if I could play tourist for a day and hit as many of those places as possible.  I never go to those places unless I have company coming from out of town and I tend to forget how great it is here.

Stopping by from FMM! I am super jealous of your weather and the fact that you can go to the beach anytime. I'm completely landlocked in Arkansas so I've only been a few times in my life! :)

Love your kitty! She is adorable!

I went to Old Town San Diego many moons ago - I'd like to go back and play tourist again.

Stopping in from FMM - hi!

I posted a pet picture also. :)

Somehow I forgot tulips when I listed my fave flowers- I did get down irises and lilies though!

Tulips always make me think of Easter. You should plant tulips during your patio project. They would be beautiful.

I've been super busy this week catching up on some stuff at work, but I can't wait to catch up on reading your blog. I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

I did FMM over at Delightfully Shrinking, too. :)

Thanks for visiting the blog ladies ;-) Amy, I am thinking tulips will be making their way into my home soon. I love how happy they make me!
