To have patience, I have decided is the inner lesson for today. Patience for Grandmother Winter to go and wake up those root children. I am ready for spring! We have not had much snow this year, and the dullness of this time before spring is getting to me. I am ready for spring cleaning, shaking all the dust bunnies out in the fresh air, wearing t-shirts and lightweight skirts, putting away the heavy wools and getting my hands in the dirt. There is so much I would like to be doing in the garden! Day by day I am noticing the little addition of sunlight, and I know that in good time, the season will shift! I just need to savour these days of sipping tea, knitting by the fireside, baking birthday cakes and cupcakes, and morning snuggles with my children under a big wool duvet. Hmmmm, I guess I like winter after all. I just needed to remind myself why.
my little gnome- this cozy sweater has been worn by each of my children!
Another good reason to love winter... you can wear awesome, cozy mismatched knitted socks !
You can get silly with static electricity:
