Everyone around me has been complaining about the weather.
“It’s too cold for March.”
Can I let you in on a little secret? I don’t mind the extra little bit of cooler weather. Last year, we had almost no winter at all and it felt like it come summer. (No rest. Kind of like a week without a Sunday)
I never got to curl up by the fire with a book, never got to finish those knitting or quilting projects and in general, just felt like we were rushing into warmer weather before it had ever left.
This year, I’ve been taking advantage of the snow – forcing myself to relish each moment that I have to spend indoors and using those times to finish up things that have been left the last couple of winters.
I finished binding both of my boys’ quilts.
Finished the top of a picnic quilt.
I know that once the warm weather truly hits to stay, we’ll be as behind as ever, but for now, I’m going to rest in the winter season and cherish each moment. Planning, resting and greeting the slow-to-start spring with peace.
