Spring is Not Far Away.

Okay, so I feel like I have been posting lately some distressing and disturbing things going on in the news, so I thought I would add a happy note.

I don't know what the weather is like where you live but right now we are enjoying sunshine and spring like weather. I am about to get up and begin my Spring Cleaning Experience. I like to do this around Lenten season. Kind of prepare for Easter.

I am going to open windows, air out the house and begin washing blankets and other odds and ends. I, also, like at this time of year to clean out my cupboards.  Last year I relined my kitchen shelves and they didn't turn out too well and so I am looking for a way to redo that. Not sure what I am thinking of. I don't think they make liner paper like they used to.

Usually, about this time my husband and I, with our son, take up the task of shampooing our carpets. They get pretty bad and usually need it, we can get up dirt the vacuum sweeper never can.

Well, anyhow if you are experiencing nice spring like weather too, it might be a good time to start spring cleaning. I know a lot of you probably work and find that hard to do, and I understand that.  I work part time myself.

Another thing I am looking forward to is this weekend. St. Patricks Day. We are hoping as a family to go and enjoy a St. Patricks Days parade and then come home and enjoy some corned beef. I may add some cabbage, though I will probably be the only one eating it.  I'll let you know more of how that turns out.

Dear Lord help us to educate our family for your glory.

"Since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it devolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence for God and others that a well-rounded personal and social development will be fostered among children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs."--Gravissimum Educationis (one of the documents of the Second Vatican Council)
