I came across this action list for Spring in Nikki McClure’s Remember: A Seasonal Record: 

  • Wake up early
  • Dig
  • Check rubber boots for spiders
  • Oil the wheelbarrow
  • Balance an egg
  • Eat nettles
  • Hide
  • Visit Grandma
  • Bring tarp on picnic
  • Clean out freezer
  • Get the mail on barefoot
  • Dry clothes outside
  • Plant seeds
  • Sing with the birds
  • Climb
  • Pollinate fruit trees

I have to admit, I haven’t made much progress on my Spring To-Do List posted on March 21st.  I haven’t even picked rhubarb yet this year!  Sometimes I’m overwhelmed by how time marches on.
