Excited is an understatement!

In two days Spring Break will officially start.

Yes, I realize that I'm not a student, but I do work in a school.

No, I'm not pining for a chance to lay out on a Daytona or Siesta Key beach, but I am pining for some different things.

Like sleeping in.

Yes, totally like sleeping in.  Past 5am that is.

So, without further ado, here are some of my "to do's" for next week.

I've got a good 16 hours a day to get busy getting all those things done I've just been dreaming about finishing.

I've got seedlings to replant since they'll need to be in the ground sooner rather than later (with all this crazy weather we've been having.)

I've got some meals to make and freeze for easy pull-out on softball game nights.

I've got stock to start and maybe finish for my up and coming "store" opening this summer.

Things like fabric flower pins...
 vintage looking bulletin boards...
cabochon flower rings
and maybe some cute aprons if I so desire.

 After all that's done, I might rearrange the living room (since it's been a couple months...), sweep out the registers, and get rid of the clutter in the bedroom.

I need to take some more clothes to the resale shop and Goodwill. 

At the end of the list...more work in the flower beds.  More weeding, and the addition of some duck mulch. 
Ah, the joys of country life.
The end result...the feeling of something accomplished.  A great feeling!  What will you all be doing?


  1. First of all, since it looks like you'll be doing enough on spring break for two people, I'm going to try to do nothing to balance things ;). Secondly, . . . Etsy, yay! Can't wait!

  2. Wow, I'm tired already and all I did was READ what you have planned! Lucky you to get a spring break. I work at our local community college and the students and faculty have a spring break but the rest of us are hard at work getting ready for the next quarter :( ENJOY your time off... well at least enjoy the sleeping in perhaps!


  3. What freezer meals are you making, may I ask? I am in need of some tasty freezer meal recipes for our family as well. Maybe you can do a post with the recipes? (Please oh please?)

  4. I've gotta say, I love your Spring break to do list! It sounds perfect. We are headed out of town for 4 days of ours and I wish we were just staying home. We will make the most of our days when we get back though. I hope you accomplish everything on your list!

  5. So excited for you! Sounds lovely - I just adore spring, the hopefulness of it all! Enjoy your break!

  6. Looking forward to seeing you on Etsy! :)
