Hope all of you are enjoying this beautiful weekend. Believe it or not I have not done any scrapbooking this weekend. Felt it was time to catch up some things around the house that I had let go. I also spent the better part of my weekend cleaning up outside. You see I have several large pine trees in my side and front yard. They were full of pine cones and with all of the windy weather we had this winter, the majority of them ended up on the ground. What a job! Every time I felt like I had a hold on the situation, I would look around the yard and see a sea of pine cones. So far I have 7 recycle bags full, and I haven't even finished a quarter of my yard! What is even more discouraging, is when I look up in the trees, all I can see are more pine cones. Me thinks there might be a pine cone layout coming up! I know that spring is right around the corner and I can't wait. I see all types of growth in my flower gardens and can't wait to make my yearly trip to buy annuals to plant amongst all my perennials. Well I'm off to wash my hands again. I wore garden gloves when I was picking up the pine cones, but for some reason I have sap all over my hands, Figure that one out! Maybe I should have a contest - guess the number of pine cones!!!!
