Friend Makin Monday

Well kids, it's Monday once again.  Well, I guess you can't get to Friday without Monday, right? RIGHT?

It's what I tell myself every week at this time.

Anyway, I'm joining Amber again this week and I'm loving all of the fun new people I'm meeting thru Friend Makin Monday - if you haven't, you should join in as well!


1. Favorite things about Spring:


I love the feeling of everything "waking up" again.  The sweet smell of flowers in the air.  The green haze that covers the trees as buds start to appear.  More fruits and veggies in the store and more excuses to use them.  The feeling of peace as I sit outside and take deep breaths of fresh air without a winter coat on. 
2. What I'm doing for Spring Break:

No such thing in my world, sadly.

3. Favorite Spring flower:

Hyacinth! Hands down.  They smell like Easter to me.


4. Do you have a garden?

I will! As soon as these frosty nights disappear I want to get planting!

5. If so, what do you grow.

I plan to grow tomatoes and various flowers to start.  I already have basil and parsley growing (I hope) in a container outside, which I've been moving indoors at night - should be sprouting in a few days, and I am very excited!

6. Do you do Spring cleaning?

I never plan to, but I always end up getting bitten by the bug.  This year should be interesting to say the least!

7. What is your weather *really* like right now?
We just came off of a stellar weekend, straight into rain.  Right now it's cloudy and humid outside.  Not my favorite weather.
8. Snapped any weather related photos lately? Share one with us!
I'll be adding these later, when I get home!

9. What's your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon?

Just to be outside is the best.  Sometimes we go to Rita's and get water ice and watch people.  It's a favorite activity of ours and it never gets old.

10. Favorite TV show right now?
 
LOST!

Water ice... mmmm... We don't have Rita's down here, but I had some 2 summer's ago when I was visiting family in NJ. It was delicious. Watching people is always fun too. Happy FMM to you too! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Nice to "meet" you, Jen. I love people watching as well! Also, Lost, although, I fear that I am 'lost" alot! As soon as I think I have it figured out, it throws me for a loop! Thanks for checking in at my blog. Happy Monday!

Came over to return some "comment love" from Friend Making Monday and wound up reading on down your page. LOL! That banana bread looks heavenly ... but then I just ate a sorta stale convenience store sandwich for lunch. :( Your pictures are beautiful!

And I decided to follow so I can find my way back to visit some more!

Great blog! Thanks for visiting mine too! I am following you! I love this friend making Monday!! About the planters: If possible I would drill holes in the planter but if not then yes I would definitely bring it in from the rain - we get alot too and it will destroy your herbs if they get drowned - :-( TTYL

So, while I didn't participate in "friend Making Monday", I am interested in making friends in blogland. Then again, I think that my previous comment about having you as a friend might have come across too strong .... SORRY!!!

My favorite spring flower is purple liliacs. I can no longer get too close to them due to my allergy based asthma and all, but man oh man do I love both the looks and the smell of them!

If the rest of the house is anything like the patio was, good luck on that spring cleaning!!! Just think how accomplished you will feel every inch of the way!

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
