Quiet.... but spring fever!

Quiet....but it's sunny and very cold! I have spring fever....been looking at gardening books (was time to switch the winter books out for the summer garden books on the coffee table) and planning to try for a better garden this year! Hopefully we will have a real summer.
Things have been on/off at work. Last week i was fairly busy all week. As of this morning i have no clients booked whatsoever for the entire week so far. Not freaking as my industry tends to be a short noticed apt based business, so usually within 24 hours apts will be booked. So i sit on call right now. Kind of sucks though as we are waiting for hubbys work to give him his claim number to get his knee surgery booked. (he slipped on the ice just days after xmas at work and tore something in his knee) So he has not had much overtime and has not been able to travel, etc for any extra moolah! We are fine but hard to get ahead, i know we are so not alone and actually lucky that we are so comfortable still with the economy as it is. (so surely not complaining) Just makes planning hard! *smile*
In the meantime i need to go get busy and pack up the now dry xmas lights and decorations away (all outdoor decorations), maybe trim a few tree branches that are brushing the rain gutter, and a few other items needing attention before i get to do something i truly want to do, like dye, make soap, knit or something such!
Enjoy your tuesday all!!!

I am with you, I have cabin fever for sure!! I have been dying to make soap thanks for bringing it up and make me obsess again!

Can't wait to see your garden once it warms up enough! My mom is getting the ground ready for hers and already has the new place all fenced.

I'm sure you'll get lots of clients this week! And, hope Hubby's knee surgery goes well.
