Hello Monday - Is Spring Really Here?

First Grilled Hamburger Of The Year #feelslikespring
The Season's First Grilled Hamburger - See the Story Below

Hello April Showers | After a most glorious spring weekend, the rains are coming. Even with the impending rains, I persuaded Scott to move the grill from the garage to the patio - I planned to grill hamburgers. Then he discovered we were out of propane. Yes, we have two propane tanks - two empty tanks, to be more specific. So back to the grocery store I went, because I didn't want to miss this window of opportunity to use the grill. It was worth it - that burger was fantastic.

Hello Event Conflicts | The boy's first Track Meet conflicts directly with the girl's and Soccer Game and we are signed up to work the concession stand. I guess we will be attending a future Track Meet instead. Our son will be competing in the hurdles - he might be at an advantage because of his height.

Hello Flower Buds | The spring bushes have started to bud out - the lilac and viburnum shrubs may bloom this week and we are hopeful the dogwood tree in the front will finally grace us with some flowers this year.

Hello Early Mornings | it appears that I will be waking up extra early 4 out of 5 days this week due to work and exercise commitments. Thank goodness the mornings are lighter earlier - it makes getting up at dark o-thirty a bit easier. And maybe I'll catch a good sunrise.

Hello Yard Work | Scott trimmed the boxwoods and I need to follow up with clean up duty. Spring waste collection starts this coming week and it will be good to get the overgrown stuff trimmed back and cleaned up.

Hello Spring | it appears that you finally arrived! We are glad to see you!

hello monday | looking forward to what the week has in store for us.

Inspired by my friend, Lee at Embrace Life, Hello Monday provides a peek into the coming week - in all its glory. Join us and Lisa for the Hello Monday fun

Looks like you have a busy week scheduled! I'll be thinking about you at o-dark thirty! I have one more week of this crazy 4 am business, then I'm shuffling my schedules again. (Maybe). I'm kind of getting fond of 4 am. Have a wonderful week! ((hugs))

Getting up early has become more difficult for me now that the mornings are more comfortable -- and your spring blooming is a little ahead of ours. Will enjoy seeing some of your photos of the new growth!

Yay for you and Spring finally showing up. We grilled burgers yesterday too. I look forward to your lilac photos:-).

Wish I could say hello to flower buds, it seems like that could take a while..! :-/

Sounds like spring has arrived for you and "mmmm" to grilled hamburgers.

I WANT that burger!! It looks so yummy.
Still not quite right here for grilling, but real soon, I hope.

Our April showers are coming beginning to morrow, but with it will come warmer temperatures, and hopefully lots of spring flowers. :-)

Spring does bring about a quicken pace to activities, plus extra duties to add to the haste. We are in the 80s for a couple of days - feels like we skipped Spring and went straight to Summer.
