Spring Cleaning & Snow Food

You know, spring cleaning is a whole lot easier when it's actually, gee, SPRING outside. We missed the storm I bought all the food for last week--and, as testimony to how much self-control I have, most of the snackies are still in the kitchen.

Snow food is snow food, that's why.

But this morning I woke up to way-familiar winds, and way-familiar white stuff blowing around, and although the weather is straightening out, it's truly affected my spring cleaning. My motivation is low, and the chocolate-covered peanuts are gone.

DO YOU SEE THE PROBLEM?

How can I spring clean and eat snow food at the same time? That's just wrong.

So I've cranked up Sirius radio on the computer and I'm listening to Classic Vinyl and that always gets me up and moving.

Spring cleaning. And snow food.

April in the North Country!

Yep, I have the same dilemma. I've decided that spring cleaning is going to have to be forwarded to June and re-named "summer cleaning."

Evidently, there is no spring in Alaska! Who knew??? ;)

Kacie said...

Um...there is a summer in Alaska, right? Have you guys heard anything one way or the other?

Lisa said...

No summer????Just spring...maybe a day or two of summer...but it is gorgeous and wonderful...but I will say that I remember snow on Craig's b-day in May...sorry, all I can say is Patience.

Oh, so sorry, Kacie. I was there in mid-May and it was cold. Cold but pretty. Very pretty. And there are mountains there, so while you're freezing you have something pretty to look at.

Well, of course you always had L to look at. (Pausing to weigh the relative good points of each vista....) Yup, you got it good, my dear. Very good!

Kacie said...

Okey-dokey...well, I have to admit, that's what I was afraid you all were going to say.

I guess all I can do is appreciate the amazing scenery [both inside and out] and take a trip to Hawaii once a year so I can wear something with short sleeves!

And no, you're right: I wouldn't trade the view here for warmth anywhere, so I'll quit grumbling and go put on another layer of clothes. ;)

Send me the snow food--hurry! We got 8 inches of new snow overnight, and I haven't been to the grocery store yet... ;)

We used to buy snow food in Tennessee, but we live in Florida now, so we get hurricane food.

It's hot here. A cold front (highs in the high 60's and low 70's) just passed, and today it's around 80. But I could still get into some snow food because it sounds comforting.

Hey, sweetie! Hope you're having a good week and that you aren't TOO busy with the end of the semester, your munchkins, Meg's impending graduation, and all of the other fun stuff that fills your days. I miss you! When you get a chance, drop me a line...I'd love to hear how you all are doing.

Janet Spaeth said...

Hi, Debby! We might get more snow this weekend, but the snow food is gone. Sigh....

Lisa, you are so funny.
