After emerging from the twilight zone I was in while engrossed in "The Passage", I looked around my house and realised it was in a complete and utter mess. As usual, noone else seemed to have noticed the overflowing washing basket, dirty floors and unemptied bins. Oh well. Back to real life.
When there is a lot to do, I usually make a list and work my way through. It's very satisfying to cross out each task as it's completed. Today's list took me from 9.30am until 7.30pm to complete. Definitely time for a rest now.
Only one job was at all enjoyable. There were a couple of piles of books which needed homes so I did a bit of bookshelf reshuffling.

I did actually have a break from domestic chores this morning when I went for a long overdue walk. It was a pleasant enough day weatherwise ( ie. not raining) and it's lovely to see so many trees and other plants blossoming.

Back home, I loved catching a glimpse of our beautiful tree through the kitchen window.

Less than two weeks until winter officially ends and after today  I have a head start on the spring cleaning!

Thank you for these wonderful photos. Your spring is a little more advanced than ours.
And happy birthday.
(I also make lists - but always put at least one easy task on it, so I can cross it off and feel I have achieved something.)
