Pushing through the last of the dark days of winter.
Do you feel like that is where you're at?
The sun is starting to shine more and more
and it seems to change how I feel.
When the clouds move in and it starts to snow
yet again...I feel heavy.
Things feel like more of an effort
and I need to start to find things to do
to bring me hope of spring.
Don't get me wrong...
I do love winter and many of the
wonderful things we can do in winter.
It is just..at this point it seems to be
dragging on...the last couple months before spring.
One of my favourite things to do
is to plant seeds at this time.
I have brought in my indoor greenhouse.
With dreams of what to start growing.
This year I have been gifted a grow light
and that should help the tomatoes.
On the bottom shelf I have all my seeds
for now...at some point they will need to move
so that plants can grow there.
I might put that shelf up on the top
or move the grow light to the very bottom?
Then I've re-arranged my living room so that I can get plants up
against the window.
I shall be having a couple rows of plant there as the seedlings get bigger.
I also love having my chair by the window.
I've actually moved it to the other side of the window
as shown in the picture from where it was
and this gives me another view when I turn my head
to look outside.
The Lord has given little bits of delights as well,
as the violets are starting to send out more blooms.
I have been doing some crocheting
and one of the things is this cute
little set of slippers.
Soft and plushy and pink.
It's an old fashioned pattern
but from experience they are oh so
I have also been keeping my sourdough starter happy.
I washed out my big jar
and put the last bit of starter in and fed it.
All those little bubbles make me happy for some reason.
Perhaps it's the thought of fluffy bread to come?
There are always things to smile at,
to cheer our hearts when
we count our blessings.
Praying for you as
we wait till spring to arrive.
Love and Prayers,
