Spring Cleaning!


Okay, It's time to Spring Clean around my house.. We've outgrown clothes or they just got tired of them.. And some of the furniture..This morning, I got up, cooked breakfast, did some ironing and laundry before I headed to the garage sales. I got a few things. I got a treasure hat box, to hold old pictures. I thought that would be a nice container. I also got Jonah a new TV stand and chest of drawers. I got all the clothes out of his old chest of drawers and we will go through those tonight. His friend, Matthew has already called dibs on a few things..lol
My husband got the kids each a hermit crab..YES.. A hermit crab.. They are cute. I'll have to bring the camera home from work and take some pictures.. One is in a shell that is painted like a football(Kristen's named him Eli!) and the other is Jonah's and it's painted like a Dallas Cowboys Football Helmet.( They didn't have any for the giants)..lol
I don't know how long these things like, but they are supposed to live a LONG time..So.. We'll see how this goes.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. I have gotten a good response t the Watkins Giveaway. Thanks, Sweet Peeps. The deadline to enter is next Saturday at noon.. See my February 25th post for details..
Bunches of hugs!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving well-wishes. I got up to have a cup of tea and thought I would see who had stopped by.

I had started my spring cleaning a couple of weeks ago, but then my daughter had her surgery and now I'm sick. Guess it will have to wait. I hate leaving a job half done or in this case just started.

Blessings,
Mary

We live in a constant state of sorting out old/outgrown/broken kids stuff. I always feel better when it's done. It's the "doing it" part that I really don't like.

But… it ain’t Spring until the 21st!

Sounds like you found some great finds at the garage sales! I see hermit crabs like that for sale at the malls, they are fun to watch. I'm sure the kids will have lots of fun with them.

Good Morning Stephanie,
"HAPPY MARCH"!!!! I'm a day late but I am out visiting and trying to catch up again. I did put up a new post this morning. I do have to have my time with my DH when he is home. I haven't started any Spring cleaning yet, but I will be this coming week and weekend. We are going to be moving into a better house and I will have time to go thru things as we move. We went thru things when we moved back in August, so I don't have alot of things to go thru. The girls have outgrown some clothes I know, so they will have to go. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the Hermit Crab. I don't guess I've ever seen one before. I bet the kids really like them. It sure has been a real nice weekend here. Very Spring like weather and temperatures as well. A cold front is to come thru Monday night and turn cold again. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Hi Stephanie,

I have to start spring cleaning, myself, soon! And the weather has been very spring-like in the past couple of days. Problem is I'd rather be outside, enjoying the weather, then be inside spring cleaning! LOl.

Hermit crabs, eh? What kind of a container do they have to live in? I hope you take pictures of them.

Have a nice Sunday evening.

Hugs,

Renie

We went through that phase where the kids had those crabs too until one of them died and talking about stinking!! WHEW!!! Glad they graduated to biger things. Or am I?lol Take care and hope you and yours have a blessed day.
