It's Friday Night!

Just got paid, party hopping, feeling great. I think those are the lyrics. Either way I’m actually sitting on my couch this Friday night excited to be home and relaxing. I’ve had an extremely busy week and now I’m catching up on Tivo’d L&O’s and Oprah’s. It was such a nice day outside I decided to head home at 4:30 to begin my weekend and apparently everyone in the DC metro area made the same decision because it took me over an hour to get home when it usually takes me about 40 minutes.

Spring is HERE and you have no idea how excited I am about it. I got home, took the grill cover off the grill, cleaned it and grilled a piece of steak for the warm steak salad recipe the Creole Princess posted on her site a few weeks ago. Delicious and good for you too.

In the next few weeks I’ll slowly start planting herbs and flowers in my lil’ garden. In the next two weeks I’ll remove the covering off the outdoor furniture and relax outside while reading the Sunday paper.

Aren’t you glad spring is here?

Geez miss Honest. Don't you HATE it when that happens?? Although Friday I made a very conscious effort to leave my job at 2pm and it actually worked out well for me. And YES!!! I am very happy that Spring is here.

Spring is definitely my favorite season. The flowers are in bloom and everything is new and fresh and green. I must say, the pollen is a BEAST though. They actually put the pollen count on the news here. Madness, I tell you!

I love, love, love spring!!! For all the same reasons - sun, gardening, grilling and patio-sitting! Nothing better than reading the Sunday paper out on the patio - to me that's heaven.

I LOVE spring! Although my 5 year-old JUST said this morning that springtime means his allergies!

Sunnchine said...

@ heart drops - I'm using Allegra and it's keeping me sane
@Creole - I've used the grill everyday since friday. LOVE IT!
@ Luke Cage -- Hmmm 2PM sounds like a plan next time.
@ Gecko girl - I went to NC two weeks ago and the first item on the news that w/e was the pollen count. I was dying without my meds
@ miss ali D -- Yes! Although this w/e a chill is coming through :-(.
@ Safa - at 5 already poor baby
@ sunshine - I had a fabulous w/e thanks!

Oh don't even be surprised if you come home and I'm in your yard, lounging on your furniture, cooking on your grill. What? I'm sure I can convince the remaining Ray-Rays to help me get your gate open.
