Spring to it Palmdale

Driving to a customer's house in Palmdale this morning, I heard bird song, saw trees in full bloom. Yes, along with that first cup of coffee scent, there's spring in the air. So thought I'd put it out there - have any special rituals for greeting the season?

Sure, some parts of the U.S. are still seeing snow, but here in  Palmdale, CA, we've got blue sky, and it feels more like summer than anything else.

So how do YOU put the winter behind you? Here are some of the things I do:

After work exercise. No more early morning sessions at the gym.  I can take a run around sunset.

Garage sale. Spring cleaning only sounds like a cliche, in reality one of the best ways to clean out the house is to get rid of unwonted items. Whether it's outgrown children's toys or that apple-baker your great aunt gave you, having an old fashioned garage sale is a great thing to do. Not only can it put a little extra cash in your pocket, left overs can be donated to a worthy charity or two right here in Palmdale.

Home maintenance. You don't have to go overboard. Just pick one necessary item and make sure it gets done. So whether that's cleaning out or replacing rain gutters, or replacing that leaky shower head, just do it. No procrastinating.

Finances. Yes, it's almost tax time. Spring is the time to get your receipts and your 1040's in order, whether it's you putting it all together or your accountant.

Recreation. Take up that long lost tennis racket! Or head out to find some fun in the sun - check out Dry Town Water Park and get a little wet.
