Twenty Little Things to Look Forward to in Spring

The Inspired Room is hosting "Twenty Little Things to Look Forward to in Spring". Following is my list:

1. Spring Cleaning (yes, it's true)
2. Flinging open the windows and letting the air circulate!
3. More light in the evenings
4. New bulbs and plants inching up out of the dirt
5. FLOWERS!!!!
6. Sitting in the backyard in my covered swing, underneath the flowering jasmine, reading a book or simply thinking
7. PASTELS!!!!
8. Lighter fabrics
9. All of my Springtime decorations
10. Asparagus
11. Lenten devotions (looking forward to Easter!)
12. EASTER!!!
13. Orange rolls on Easter Morning
14. Waking to the sounds of crazy birdie chirping outside my window and up in the roof
15. Bird nests and baby birds
16. Long Springtime walks (if my back will hold up)
17. Mayday surprises to the neighbors
18. Planning the flower and veggie gardens
19. Sitting outside, reading with my children
10. Oh, yes! and FLOWERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love your list! I don't know how I missed that on Melissa's blog. I keep dreaming up things to plant in the front yard...then I remember we're bringing in a bulldozing it this summer to fix a few issues. Hope your spring brings lots of flowers and sunshine!

Great post... I agree with pretty much it all except the asparagus part. ;) Well, and the fact that I don't have a lovely covered swing to enjoy the season in. Maybe one day!

What a great list. I too am looking forward to flowers and brighter colors and more light and open windows.

One of your items reminds me . . . you asked me about Lent last week. I finally posted about my Lenten discipline today if you're interested.
