Spring Fever

What a beautiful day today was here in Minnesota. It is march and we had a high of 72 degrees. I had my windows open and a nice breeze was getting out all of the winter funk! I sat outside for quite awhile and just enjoyed the warmth. There were a lot of people out walking and even a couple of kids across the street flying kites, that was really fun to watch. I live across the street from the old football field so it is the perfect place to fly kites.
I have been slowly decorating my house for Easter and spring today I made a wreath for my door. I saw the idea on Pinterest and think it turned out pretty well, it certainly looks springy. I might add more ribbon and maybe a little sign that says spring, but we will see.
I got a really neat surprise the other day, something that really touched my heart and I thought I would share it with all of you. I got a call from The Blossom Shop (flower shop) saying that they had a delivery for me and we set up a time for them to come. It was 10 am and they said they would be there by 1...that is a long time to wait and wonder. Well about 11:30 they showed up with this beautiful plant.
It is called Crown of Thorns plants and it is believed that it was this plant's stems were used to make Christ's crown of thorns, how neat huh? The neat thing is that it is from a past customer that I waited on at the drug store when I worked there. This note was included, it made me cry.
If you click on it it gets bigger so you can read it. I am pretty sure I know who the man is but I certainly do not remember the incident he talked about. It just made me feel really good that I touched someone's life in that way and even being away from that place for over a year he still thought enough to send it to me. I would love to show my ex boss and say "see people did like me working here." But no I will let it go and just bask in that knowledge myself.
Well tomorrow I am going to pick up my nephews. They are on spring break so they are coming to Grandpa and Grandma's for a couple of days and Aunt Cindi will get to spoil them too! Have a great rest of the week. Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment so I know you were here!
