Sometimes I just need to whine!

This morning as Emily headed out the front door to school, I stood with my cup of coffee and enjoyed the balmy weather as Max ran around outside for a minute. It is green and beautiful here in the NW as I'm sure our many Olympics visitors are going to notice. The cherry trees I showed you 2 weeks ago are now officially in a full spring bloom - gorgeous!!
As I was enjoying the out of doors - I turned my head to look for Max and what to my horror did I see? WEEDS, WEEDS, WEEDS!

Now - I've said it before and I'll say it again - I WILL NOT WEED BEFORE MARCH! It's just my personal little rule :-) But how in the world will I hold to my mantra this year?!?! Please don't come visit me unless you have a pair of gardening gloves and a bucket - my yard is in no shape for visitors!!

I've spoken personally with some of you and I know you have already been out there weeding - BRAVO for you - way to put the pressure on me! As you can tell I don't LOVE working in my yard - I do it because I like a sharp looking yard - but I'd much rather be inside cleaning frankly!

I have the same rule, and stick to it steadfastly! Though this year, the weeds are gonna big pretty big by the time March is here.

But I'm still gonna wait...

Count me in too!! I'd rather be scrapping instead of cleaning though ;D

I've been tempted twice now. Even gone so far as to pull one or two. Then I slap myself in the face and say loudly "NO, don't start this!" I can't imagine weeding from February till November. That's only 3-4 months off!!!!!
Personally, I'd rather not be cleaning inside either. Quilting or reading, no!!
