Spring is SO here

I love these kind of days when the wash can be hung out and the windows opened with the curtains floating in the breeze! The irisis' are in bloom and the shrubs are getting their leaves too. I love to watch the pear and peach trees bloom. When a good breeze comes it looks like snow! I am starting to get the cleaning bug. I will probably repaint this spring too. It's been 3 years since I've painted the kitchen and livingroom. I am ready to hit Croom's Nursery in the next week or so to get my flower beds going. I planted new shrubs in the front and along the side of the property. I love the purple color.

Habitat for Humanity

Today is Friday, and at this time of the year we have students visiting from all over the country to help build homes. this year we have had three groups, and the last one will be here Sunday night. These kids are fantastic! They work all year at their colleges to raise money to come here and help our community. Various churches and citizens house and feed them. This group is number two.

What a nice day

Today was so nice! I hung out 2 loads of wash. The breeze was strong and cool, perfect for wash day. I hit a great yard sale and got a bunch of clothes for spring. My children and I went to the park for homeschool park day and it was so nice to visit with my friends. I love the park here in Lucedale. I had lunch with my husband and his latest group of Habbitat for Humanity kids. All the kids who sign up are so nice. They have Habbitat groups at their colleges inorder to plan a trip to build a house. The Republican Party meeting was good this evening. Steve Palazzo spoke. I am a Joe supporter, but Steve is a nice guy too.

The Test

I took the teacher test today in Pensacola Florida. It was a long drive for a test that was only 1 1/2 hours long. I hope I passed. Won't find out until the end of the month. Of course no matter where I go I have to shop! I found some great things at the Party City store. I love paper napkins!

My new blog!

I am trying to figure this all out. I have seen so many great blogs to inspire me that I figured I would give it a try. I hope to post pictures of my family and friends, along with projects, and events to share with everyone.
