Spring is Here – Let the Projects Begin!

Happy first day of spring! I don’t know about you, but I am so happy to see winter come to an end. Don’t get me wrong, winter has it’s place. It’s absolutely necessary for the earth and for our souls to go through a season of cold, wet, darkness for the old to die away and make room for the new growth of spring. But by the time that season of lifelessness is over, I’m jumping out of my skin to see the “new thing” God is doing.

I have a million and one projects to do around the house, and right now they are all swirling around in my head. I’m standing at the brink of being overwhelmed by how much I’d like to get done. It’s at these times that I know I need to pull out a notebook and get it all in a list. Somehow getting the ideas out of my head and onto paper make them seem less urgent and more manageable. I can rest easy that I’ve given them a place of permanence before they fly away and I’m left scratching my head wondering where my inspiration went.

First on my list will be to neaten up my painting space and get a few pieces of furniture ready to sell. My workshop area was left in an unfinished state when freezing temp hit, making it unbearable to use. I have several pieces that are half finished. I want to move them on to completion so I can make room for new pieces.

Also on my list is to finish power washing the driveway. We started that project last year, and somehow in the middle we lost steam. I love the look of a fresh, clean driveway and sidewalk. It makes the entire look neater and more trim.

I’ve been planning to paint my master bedroom and our den for months, maybe years. Somehow we haven’t found the time or energy to begin, but I am redoubling my effort to knock out this project. Once we get started, I know we won’t want to stop until we’re finished. I’m sure it will look so much better we’ll wonder why we couldn’t get motivated to do it sooner. I’m trusting in that, anyway.

As I look around my house I see that some of my accessories need freshening up. A few are becoming dated, so I’m scouring Pinterest to see how I can update a few areas without spending a ton of money.

What about you? Does spring bring about the urge to work on projects around your home? What kinds of things do you look forward to completing?
