My area here in Mich. we just went from winter to summer!! It was hot here today--60 F....But one of the things today was to chip away at the ice on the north side of the barn...so as to get that door open..

Spring here too. All the frost hardy stuff is popping up. I'm just dying to get a garden planted, but I'm selling my house in town so we can get back to the country. Now that the weather is good I'm replacing all the trim on the outside of the house. I painted the house last summer. I am also painting some and replacing part of the trim inside. Had to wait till it was warm enough to run the swamp cooler on vent since paint fumes make me ill. The house is a HUD fixer upper that was rented to a family with boys and dogs before it was repoed. Lots of work yet to do! Hoping to get a little help soon, I have to replace all the sheetrock in one of the bathrooms and can't lift it by myself. Fun.
