Friend Making Monday–Almost Spring!

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here and over at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

Almost Spring


1. What do you love most about Spring? 

The change of season, winter here in Ontario tends to drag on and on, and so I love the change in the air and seeing all the trees beginning to come back to life.

2. If you’re lucky enough to have a Spring Break, what will you do to enjoy it? 

This year I will be spending spring break (next week) on a cruise in the Caribbean! I can’t wait!

3. What is your favourite flower? 

Just plain ol’ daisies, they are nice.

4. Do you have a garden?  If so, what do you grow? 

We do have a huge garden area here at our new place.  When my grandma lived here she used to let the neighbour, another family member, put in a big vegetable garden.  It has not been used for a few years now though.  We might do something with it this year I think.

5. Share one thing that you hope to accomplish during Spring. 

My half marathon, I’m going to run it in April just as the weather really gets going here.  Then I will be able to focus on other things again.

6. Do you do Spring cleaning? 

We probably will, the garden and such.  I think Amber is a big more keen to grow things than I am, but I’ll help out if that is the case.


7. What is your weather *really* like right now? {Just b/c it’s almost Spring, doesn’t mean that it feels like it for some of you.} 

Right this moment, it’s –8C and dreary.  The rest of the week will be above freezing according to my weather widget.  Really it won’t be ‘spring like’ around here for another few weeks.

8. Share one photo that you’ve taken during the month of March.



Here is me and Grayson on the couch on March 1st

9. What’s your favourite thing to do on a sunny afternoon? 

Once the snow is gone and the roads are dryer I will love to get out on my actual bike again instead of the dumb spin bike at the gym!  But also once it is warm enough to enjoy it I will really like running outside after work without a hoodie and track pants on!

10. If you could spend the day doing anything in your city, what would you do? 

Let’s see, the spring in Bridgenorth.  Anything.  I have no idea, maybe just walk the path with Amber, or by the time it’s actually clear of snow and not all mucky we’ll be able to run it together. :)


Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions!  Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments!


  1. You're a bit farther north than I am in SE Michigan, but I'm ready for winter to be over, too!

  2. Wow, that's cold! You certainly deserve a lovely Caribbean escape cruise. Very jealous!! Have fun!

  3. You and Grayson are laying in the same position! Also, now I want to take a nap.

    I did my FMM questions over at my blog, too.
