In which we sing a Spring Song and do a bit of housekeeping

Hark, I hear a robin calling!
List, the wind is from the south! 
And the orchard-bloom is falling
Sweet as kisses on the mouth… 

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils, 
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills. 

Ours shall be the moonrise stealing
Through the birches ivory-white; 
Ours shall be the mystic healing
Of the velvet-footed night. 

Ours shall be the gypsy winding
Of the path with violets blue, 
Ours at last the wizard finding
Of the land where dreams come true.

(excerpted from Spring Song, by Lucy Maud Montgomery)


And a bit of housekeeping tonight as well:

I’ve set up Emerging Mummy Reviews as a separate site. I set up this satellite site for giveaways and reviews as well as news and information that may reflect the interests of myself and my readers (that’s you guys). Feel free to subscribe or follow that separate site if you’re interested in reviews, giveaways, contests and that kind of thing.

Two fantastic giveaways going on right now if you would like to enter (chances are pretty good since, um, I just put them up). 

Okay? Okay.

    Two things:
    1. That poem is almost as good as an Anne of Green Gables quote.
    2. I was very relieved that this post was not about spring cleaning – housekeeping your HOUSE as oppose to the website. It would have made me feel really bad about myself, since I do not have a newborn in my house and it isn’t spring cleaned yet. Phew.

      Housekeeping? Like real housekeeping? BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Um, no. Not much of that happening around here these days.
