It is so funny to me how much difference a couple of months makes in Idaho. The top picture I took today and the bottom picture was taken in May 2008. Huge difference. Thank goodness. I think last year we had 3 more feet of snow than we had this year so I know spring is right around the corner for me too. Which means it is time to kick the planning phase into overdrive and get my "to do" list prioritized and organized. I always have a big list, heck... I wake up with a list everyday. But this year some of my projects are doozies and I want to be prepared. Actually, I want the help (husband) to be prepared. If he knows way in advance all I want to accomplish, then he may humor me as none of it will be a surprise. Pretty sad to make a list to make the list. I am big on note taking (now, not when it mattered), so it helps me to bullet the items I want done with a clear list under each of the tasks and supplies needed. This year I may go for broke and add a time frame to my list. That ought to get his blood pressure up for sure. The "help" hates to have a time frame to live by. On second thought, maybe I will keep the time frame part on a private list and let him think it was all his idea while gently pushing him in my planned direction. See, I am may be learning after all.
