For the last two weeks, school has been on Spring Break. For the first week, JT went to Florida with the baseball team. I went to school on the days he was gone and worked from home for the second week, with ample time off to get lots of Spring chores completed. I cleaned the windows, dusted the baseboards, took after my bathroom grout with a bleach pen, cleaned closets and generally got myself ready for the juggernaut that is the last segment of the school year.
Part of getting myself ready involved some relaxation. I slept in; read some good books; went for walks outside; cooked some new recipes; and relished the extra daylight.
I also swapped out my closet and brought Spring clothes to the forefront. Gone are the tights, wool skirts and heavy sweaters. In their place, I’ve got cotton sweaters, t-shirts, lightweight skirts, and warm-weather shoes. Winter coats, hats, mittens, and scarves were washed and put away. Spring jackets and scarves have replaced them on the coat rack.
