From where I stand…

Nettles, sick and sad toddler, broccoli raab, leek and potato soup, elderflower mullien lemon balm tea with raw honey. Fresh eggs, a flooded back yard, extra straw, kitchen scraps, squirrels that eat our young plant starts. Appointments canceled, things that can’t be canceled, realizing you forgot to pick up your strawberries last week, feeling sheepish. Cleavers are ready! White wine, thawing ground beef, knitting, making plans for the weekend, Spring is coming, tinctures: garlic ginger and turmeric..How is your Tuesday going?

From where I stand…

The rain is so loud this morning. It’s telling me stories. It’s telling me to make plans, to live my life, to do the things I love with the people I love.

Spring is coming.

Stems of green and the bright pink and the pinky white and the purples are all coming back to bloom.

Spring is coming!

Our chickens are laying and getting surly. We are planning gardens to serve family meals and potlucks with friends.

Spring is coming.

Prematurely marking camp sights in my head, making lists of bedding, mess kits and where to carve the walking sticks.

Spring is coming…what are your plans?
