Spring is around the corner!

The current EtsyBloggers blog carnival has the following two choices:

1) Spring: Tell us what you like about it, what you hate about it. Do you look forward to it? What are your favorite spring activities?
- OR -
2) Month 3: We are already on March!! What have you accomplished this year in real life or on Etsy?? Have you followed your New Year's resolutions? What are your plans for the rest of 2009?

My answer to choice #2 would be pretty simple at this point - I've accomplished preparing nearly 200 tax returns with many more to go. Resolutions? HA! And my plans are to make it through the next 34 days! Since at this point every tax season I tend to daydream of life after April 15th, I'll choose topic #1 and share some of the things that I look forward to this spring.

Open windows letting in fresh air.
Beautiful flowers everywhere.
Fresh Oregon Strawberries - Delicious!
Hiking in the surrounding forests.
And of course, fun on the beautiful Oregon coast!
Hope you have a Happy Spring!

Spring, it is almost over here, the heat is on already. The A/C came on automatically yesterday, which means it was over 82 in the house.
So it is too late for us to comment on spring!

We had spring-like weather this weekend and it was wonderful - we got to open the windows (Dobby and I both are big fans of outside air). I still haven't done my taxes though...thanks (I guess!) for the reminder. And I'm really impressed with all the tax work you've done so far - if I had to do 200 returns, I'd go nuts!

The photos are so beautiful! Oregon and Washington are among the places I would love to visit.

I bet Sadie will like it when the season is over so she can go on ectra long walks:)

Spring has sprung here, too! Your flowers are gorgeous, and Mom is drooling over those strawberries! Where we use to live we had the Strawberry Festival every year. Mom says she needs to make strawberry shortcake now!

Mom just had her taxes done last week. Mom's previous CPA was all work and no play during tax time. Life began again for him on April 16th - usually starting with a trip somewhere on the beach to relax and to sip some good wines!
