right now, I am ...
:: marveling how this February is flying by in such a blur, embracing that, and riding the wave right on into March.
:: revisiting our winter manifestos of years past, and making changes in our days that match.
:: plotting our spring garden, all while sitting by the fire wearing three layers of wool and sipping warm tea.
:: finishing the February orders for spring farming plans - bees, birds, fences and trees...perhaps.
:: stopping myself from even more. Everything else...can wait. There's a baby coming!
:: wondering if I really ordered as many chicks as I think I did. (I did. Oh my.)
:: casting on for the second sleeve on the biggest sweater I've ever made.
:: listening to the newly released Wailin Jennys album and love, love, loving it.
:: queing the new Iron & Wine, which is equally loved here.
:: feeling grateful for beautiful new music in February.
:: loving all the heart-shaped crafty kid goodness that keeps coming my way already this morning.
:: hoping that everyone has a little bit of that kind of Good Love in their lives.
:: wanting to get out this afternoon for another ski in the backyard winter wonderland that feels a little bit like Narnia right now.
:: thinking it would be nice if this one didn't include me landing in a silly jumbled twisted heap.
:: reminding myself that some gentle yoga today might be a better option. With the windows open for fresh air. (If I close my eyes, I can pretend I'm in Narnia.)
:: making carrot & fennel soup for dinner tonight.
:: planning on eating leftover peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookies for lunch before that.
:: wishing you a lovely Valentine's Day and a beautiful start to your week!
