May from the Fifth Lamp part 2

Look at the difference a couple of days makes! Everything is greener and more Spring-y!

While I am talking about green things, can I just give some props to the weeds out there?

The wild violets are blooming and they are a sweet surprise in the middle of the lawn.

Little purple drops of loveliness.

I am also in favor of Creeping Charlie, though I don't think that my neighbors appreciate it.

I love that it fills up the spaces where grass can't or won't grow.

I also love their little blue flowers.

There, I said it.

I am pro weeds!

For this portion of the post I would like my parents and husband to look away.

Are they gone?


I am not what you might call a clean freak.

I am not what you might call overly sanitary if it comes right down to it.

I didn't get a lot done today, but I did clean my downstairs windows for the first time this Spring.

It was really satisfying to see the light coming through the windows without the filter of months of grime.

I actually enjoyed it.

It must be Spring Fever,

talk to you soon,



  1. I'm loving the pictures! it makes me home sick!... Yes, after being gone for 14 years (OMG has it REALLY been 14 years since i left for college?) I still consider MN home.

    and don't feel bad about the windows... our house looked like a different place when we had them washed. It's a pain.

  2. Huzzah!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew you had it in you!
    Now could you help me neaten up a few places?
