I need a little spring time

I already have a very small case of the winter blues. I am in the mood to dig in the dirt, and open the windows. I am not trying to rush these lazy days of winter away quite yet, but I am looking forward to spring time.

I put a carrot cake in the oven this morning, then we grabbed some cleaning supplies and spent an hour or so scrubbing sinks, floors, and wiping down the walls. The kids have some small brooms, and cleaning toys and they love to help.

So, some spring cleaning, and baking. I am feeling better already.



Time for a cake break..............

I'm not a winter person. I think winter should end exactly one week after Christmas! Your cake looks delicious...I love carrot cake.

I know what you mean about spring. When the first crocus breaks through the ground I will be a happy girl.
The cake looks so divine. And a spring clean home, lovin it.

Yummy cake! I want some. It amazes me how much better I feel when floors are mopped and sinks are scrubbed. I just wish I found more time to do it. My house is a PIT right now! Can't wait for spring either!

I have been spring cleaning, too! Every place I look, lately, needs attention! I find I organize a closet here, a cupboard there, and I even got to my freezer last week! I have a need to get rid of the clutter and make some room for this baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmm, too bad you can't pass a slice of that my way. That looks delicious.

Good luck with your spring cleaning.

Forget the cleaning... I will have some cake! Actually, winter can get tough, so I understand that. We need some sunlight and air :)

I don't really like the cold but I welcome the chance to slow down and get some inside things taken care of. Carrot Cake is my favorite cake!

Cleaning soothes my soul, too! I also hold fast to knowing that we're half way between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox! Signs of spring are here! :-)
