Spring is in the Air!

Its only March 1st but spring has been in the air here in Michigan for a while.  We've had mostly mild temps with a few intermittent cold, snowy days broken up by days like today that are nearly 40 degrees.  This weekend its supposed to reach 50 - around here that is shorts and flip flop weather for sure!  The birds are twittering, the buds have been forming on the lilacs for a while, the critters are basking in the sunshine (and of course rolling in the mud!).  Any day now I expect that first crocus to fight its way through the piles of leaves warming my flower beds. 

And with those first signs of spring comes the urge to throw up the windows and clean and purge.  Lots of friends posting on FaceBook about taking loads of outgrown clothes and toys to Goodwill today.  If you are looking for some ideas on how to get in the spring cleaning mode check out my Spring into Action Organizational Party.  Its a fun casual way to get together with friends for a quick Saturday lunch and get motivated to spring clean.  And if you want some more great tips on cleaning and organizing FlyLady will boggle your mind!  Boot the kids outside to play, crank up your favorite tunes, toss open the windows, roll up your sleeves and go!
