"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

I'm sick...

I've got it bad.  Every year about this time I get a case of the same thing.  And, without a doubt, this year it has hit harder and more fierce.  It started about two weeks ago. 
It's name...SPRING FEVER.  And I have it bad.

It probably has something to do with the black snow that is right outside my window.  I just want it to go away so I can see if there is still grass underneath.  I NEED TO SEE SOME GREEN!  It may just be time for me to head to the local nursery and buy a new plant or two.  The best thing about today is that it's raining...which means the snow will melt a little and I might actually see my yard again soon!

Is it just me, or does everyone feel happy with something new?  (I know, someone reading wants to insert a sermon here about how only God can make us truly happy, and with Him we don't need anything else.  I know.  But I'm not talking about eternal, deep-in-your-heart joy...I'm talking about "If I don't see a little Spring or if I don't do something different around this house I'm going to LOSE IT")   

The other day I put a stool that was in one room into another room....and it felt new (even though it wasn't). 
(And I bought a new book...."The FIND"...geared me up for some Spring bargains)

This morning I washed and folded my dishtowels. Bor-ing!  Yes, but something about a pretty dishtowel makes my kitchen feel "new". 

It doesn't take much to change my attitude...it doesn't even take me going to Target. Usually all it takes is a pair of "fresh eyes" to see what I already have and how I can move it around to make it "new".

Don't get me wrong...I'm all for an extreme home makeover or a little shopping therapy....but when the budget doesn't allow it, and your insides are screaming for a little change, something sitting in another room may just need to be moved around a little.

I think the cat is feeling Spring Fever, too.  She has seriously followed me around all day WHINING...maybe she has a case of something else...something that involves male cats. 
But whatever it is, she's got it bad, too!

what a RIOT!! that song is the PERFECT MATE for this post!! I've been thinking lately that I may get the nerve to actually ASK you to come to my home and "fiddle" with some of my decor, I would happily exchange some fresh baked bread or a massage or something along those delicious lines!! Any thoughts about that??
P.s. YOU ARE GOING TO LOOOOOVE MY GIVEAWAY IN HONOR OF MY 400TH POST!! watch out! I'm only 7 posts away from it!!!!!

Getting through a pile of ironing that has been sitting for two months gave me some "new" clothes to wear today!

Consume me... said...

wow...does that work, Jodie? I don't EVER do ironing...unless I'm getting ready to put it on! I should try it tomorrow - do you promise it will feel new?

I laughed when I got to the Spring Fever part!

I have it rumbling in me too! I try to be content with each season....but now there is more snow on the way...

I like moving things around too! It does make things "New".

well, it looks as though i may be entering "snow widow" status again....so if you can make your way over here during the storm, well, wouldn't that be FUN?? We could "fiddle and fuss", make some bread and play candyland! And PLEASE bring Emma~your darling girl!! Seriously, let's be in touch in the next week. I would seriously be soooo honored to have you in my home!

p.s. i would happily purchase that book from you seeing as i was just about to order it via amazon!
