Weekend Wandering


Happy Weekend and Happy Spring!  Here in Florida we seemed to have gone straight to summer, but we are definitely enjoying the warmer temps!  I’m not sure how much longer my little garden will hold out now that it is downright HOT outside, but I’m going to try to keep it going as long as possible.  In other news, I bought a composter this week, which I am eager to get set up this weekend.  What are your plans for the first weekend of Spring?

Here is what I loved this week:

    Thanks so much for featuring my frugal Easter ideas. I wish it was warmer here in Maine. Winter refuses to leave here. Snowed a little today and suppose to be back down to 22 tomorrow. *sigh*

    I had a compost for awhile until one day I was spraying it with water and 6 huge rats jumped out! Eekkk! It was awful. No more composting for me.
