I can't get my mind off the fact that winter is nearly OVER!!!! cheers We didn't have a harsh winter, but it did seem very looooooong! I actually saw a robin this morning! Awesome sign of Spring!
What's the first thing you want to do once the snow melts and we get our warmer temps?
We will buy a new Grill, and then put up our gazeebo on our deck.

Well...for me the transition is from shoveling the driveway to mowing the lawn! No

But open windows and fresh air will be nice! Very Happy

The first thing I'm going to do is rip all the plastic off the windows open the windows and get some fresh air in the house. Then I'm going to work on my rock garden and start building another one. I got a lake swimming pass so my son and I are planning on spending alot of time at the lake and at Drury.

I always thought a gazebo would be a really nice thing to have. Or a screened in back porch.

Well, we had a Sunsetter awning first. We loved it and had it for years. But then a heavy rain with strong winds destroyed it. It was expensive, so we decided our next thing would be a Gazebo. So, we got this huge gazebo, and put right on our deck ( The deck is pretty big, and able to accomadate it ) had that for a few until, another storm ripped it to shreds. We always buy the kind with the screens that go all the way around. It's nice to eat out there and not be bothered by Flies or scared out of your mind by BEES and at night, it has a string of lights on one side and the screens keep out the mosquitoes. We put out candles too, it's really nice. But then, you guessed it... ANOTHER storm ripped up that one but this time the metal legs were bent but not broken. So we bought another Gazebo for the "walls" and "ceiling" and used the old skeleton.
We find these gazebos for $100.00 bucks, which when compared to to the Sunsetter awning, it's cheaper to replace the gazebos!
LOL!! We do not have very good luck with those things, but we LOVE them!

It really sounds nice. I don't think gazebos or sunsetter awnings would last very long around here either. It would be nice to sit outside at night without being attacked by the mosquitos.

It is! When we have our friends over for dinner in the summer, we make a huge pitcher of Rasberry ice tea, bring out some munchies and put on the lights, light the candles and either just sit and chat, or we play cards or board games.
When it's just my family, we play board games all the time. It's fun!

That all sounds so nice! I live in a tiny apartment, so no yard or gazebos for me. The only spring-y type changes I've noticed are that the birds are coming back to my feeders (much to the delight of my cats) and that it's warmer now when I go into work (and get off).

Someday, I want to have a big yard with a screened in porch and a vegetable garden and fruit trees. Ideally I'd like to get about 40 acres and a small barn and some horses but with the cost of land... well, if that ever happens it won't be until I'm retired.

Magoozelle I always thought it would be so nice to live in the country. We had two days of spring weather here and then it turned cold again. I've been looking at gazebos and I'm seriously thinking about getting one. I think every year I'll put in a vegetable garden but I never seem to get it done.

Mystery Lover you are having spring weather where you are ? Congrats and enjoy Smile

Yesterday it was beautiful here. I had the backdoor and a window open. The fresh breeze was wonderful. By afternoon it was starting to turn cold. Today it is very cold and we have an inch of snow on the ground. That's life living on the Great Plains for you. Smile
