The arrival of spring requires all caps-something I rarely use in my blog titles.
It's here, and we wear our survival of another Minnesota winter like a badge of courage.
To welcome the new season, we swept all of the winter remains from our steps, and I found a lovely new doormat covered in poppies. I made our favorite summer pasta (the Barefoot Contessa Sun Dried Tomato Pasta) that I have gone on and on about on this blog. The smell of the fresh basil (quite a deal at Trader Joe's) permeated the whole house. sigh.
I am too superstitious to remove the window screens yet, and the winter boots, while moved, are still within access if necessary. I did defy my usual carefulness, and removed the flannel sheets from the beds. So if we get a snowstorm, you can blame it on me.
I bought packets of seeds, and trays for starting them, all excited to see the tiny shoots of green. Until I brought them home, and looked at the spot in the baement where I thought I would tackle this project. I am having second thoughts. It seems like SO MUCH WORK to save some money. Thoughts, any one?
If I am diligent, and not lazy, I could have this as my reward.
But that seems really far away.
Clearly, I am looking for someone to tell me what to do...
