    I can't think of many things more fun than a backyard movie night! You can rent a projector from a local library and string up a sheet between trees to act as a screen. From there all you need is a stack of blankets for lounging and popcorn!

    While cleaning may not seem like fun, it always feels good to have a sparkly clean house! Check out Martha's spring cleaning checklist to get started. Not feeling that motivated? Tackle a closet instead and make piles of clothes to keep, store or donate.

    It's a little early to plant veggies in many parts of the country still, but you can definitely get your herbs going inside to move out later. I love these little terra cotta pots labeled simply with black marker.
