The sun is back! After all the snow and crazy cold weather we were starting to feel claustrophobic. You may have heard that people from the south are sensitive to cold. It is true! We really are! We crave the sun and heat. We look forward to sitting by the pool with the hot sun and a cold drink in our hand. We are done with the cold!
We have noticed that even the birds are confused. They come back and leave again. Over the past week the sun has come back and so have the birds. My son and I love seeing them coming home and bathing in the sun. We know that they are happy too.
Now that we will be spending more time outside, we need to get it all set for entertaining and enjoying. We moved into this house in October, so we haven’t had much time to spruce up the outside space. Since this is a rental I do not want to put much money into it or do anything permanent. I have some fun ideas in mind for an updated outdoor space. I would like to hang decorative birdhouses by the window. I would like to add a bird bath and make a colorful DIY bird feeder. Since we do not have many trees, I know that the bird would love that as well!
We have our trampoline, table and gazebo set up in the back yard. It is perfect for doing my work and watching the kids. I think it would be nice to make custom stepping stones that would customize our space but we could easily take with us when we leave.
With little man at home I have to find a way to include him in all my projects. He is my shadow these days. I know that we can spruce up our front sitting area and the back yard with a little creativity. I am ready to put on the gloves and get started.
For those of you still dealing with the cold and the snow, I am sorry! I hope that you will see the sun again very soon!
