Spring Fun To-Do List

Spring is in full swing and I am loving it! I created a little spring to-do list of fun things I’d like to do this season.

Go on a picnic

Jimmy and I have a wonderful little park in our neighborhood. I’d love to pack up a meal and hang out at the park one afternoon or evening!

Visit the zoo

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here, but Jimmy is creating a zip line for the Pittsburgh Zoo! He creates some pretty cool things at work each day, and I really want to go on the zip line he’s working on once it’s done.

Paint something

I’ve been wanting to restore an old bookshelf Jimmy and I have in our living room. I’ve literally had paint all ready to go for this project for over a year. What am I doing?! I need to do this! I’d also like to paint our office.

Donate clothing

I have some clothes all ready to be donated. I just need to stop by the donation center and drop them off!

Practice photography

I’m hoping to get out on a nearby trail during golden hour and practice my nature photography. The trail near our house is so lush, and has some streams and ponds near it that I really want to capture.

What do you want to do during this season?

Spring Has Sprung

It seems like the weather is finally catching up with the season here in Pittsburgh. We have been having temperatures in the 60s and 70s!

It feels wonderful to get outside and not have to bundle up. Also, seeing daffodils poking through the ground and bright yellow forsythia blooming is such a mood booster. The nice weather also makes pet sitting a lot more enjoyable 😉

Did everyone have a nice weekend? Ours was fairly busy, filled with pet sitting, work, painting, celebrating, and worshiping. A lovely mix of activities.

I bought a coral paint sample for an accent wall in our office, but it was too orange-ish when I put it on the wall. So I painted primer over it and bought another sample. Fingers crossed this one is the color I’m looking for!

My family celebrated my mom’s birthday by going to her favorite Italian restaurant. Afterwards, some of the kids went go karting at Steel City Indoor Karting. I was definitely content to just watch and take pictures. The go karts go as fast as 50 miles per hour!

Our church is hosting its Spring Revival, so we have a guest speaker preaching from Sunday through Wednesday, which is always a delight!

I also finished reading Midwife: A Calling by Peggy Vincent and it was great! Some of her stories literally had me laughing out loud. I read one to Jimmy about a placenta and he definitely didn’t think it was funny. Sorry Jimmy! I guess we don’t have the same level of interest in childbirth 😉

How was your weekend?

What has the weather been like where you live?
