Spring? Is it too soon?


I read something yesterday that said the 6,000-12,000 tulips at Churchill Downs will be blooming a week or more early so the Derby goers will not be able to see them blooming on Derby Day Everything seems to be blooming early and I hear the lawn mowers and smell the mulch.  I feel like I need to get my mower out and get to work.  Here are a list of things I’d like to get accomplished this Spring/Summer.  Do you have a similar list?

  1. Plant small herb/vegetable garden (get plants (seedlings) from Good Foods Co-Op or Chevy Chase Hardware;
  2. Clean front porch and touch up paint on furniture;
  3. Clean pillows and place on porch;
  4. Re-pot plants and put in decorative planters on porch;
  5. Get more plants – Go to Pemberton’s Greenhouse (secret to great, healthy plants);
  6. Get two more wood pallets and make composting bin for back yard;
  7. Clean out garage – get hooks to organize things up high and get rid of unused items;
  8. Paint cabinets in bathrooms.  I have three and plan to paint them this summer.  Choose Anthropologie knobs and pulls to accent.

I am a mom of one 10 year old and stepmother to three wonderful adults; ages 20, 23 and 25. The youngest child is just beginning Fifth grade at Ashland Elementary in the Gifted/Quest program. She enjoys playing violin, archery and everything scientific. Mary Stewart is beginning her last year of medical school at Case Western in Cleveland. She and her fiancé, Franklin, plan to marry next June! Charles Morgan just graduated from the College of Charleston and will be beginning Post-Baccalaureate work next month. Betsy is living the college dream at Ole Miss in Oxford studying Business and the most fun ways to party. She plans to take the LSAT next summer! We are very blessed in the family department. My husband is a lawyer specializing in Intellectual Property, computer and entertainment law. We are in the eighth year since starting our own business, Montague Law PLLC. I have the title Operational Manager which means the administrative end of the business (yuk) and now some new and fun work on the firm's website. We live in Lexington, KY or as many know it – horse country. Everything around here is horse-themed and it is a very beautiful area to live in and raise a family. I have many interests that span art, sciences, education, books, computer science and security and one of my greatest passions is design. One of my favorite blogs is Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge. I like living the simple life, spending time with my family and reading and writing about my interests in my blog. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to share with you the many things I enjoy so that you may enjoy them too. I love sharing cool information with people who appreciate it. I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
