It is only just past 7 a.m. and I can see outside. Yes, it is still a little darkish but it is a grey morning and thinking back to how dark it was at this time of the day just a short while ago. It is wow! The days are getting longer~~it is still light out at 5p.m. cool!
Father Winter is still blasting us with his cold breath although it is
warmer this morning than it has been in the previous couple of mornings.
I can handle that. I love snow and winter especially how cozy the inside of the house is. With winter winds, snows, and not to forget the ice It is so wonderful and heartwarming to come into a cozy room that smells of woodfire and good food cooking. Even the lights give off a golden amber hue to the rooms. Cats and dogs sleeping stretched out by the stove. I love it all.
Our one grandson has finished the second book of the Eragon series~~li
fe is full of dragons and magic right now. He told me the other day that he would like to write some kind of stories along this line using the people of his family in it and friends. I can hardly wait to see what he comes up with. I wonder if the horses will possess magical powers or lariats that come to life or hmmm It is going to be interesting.
another grandson phoned us the other night too. He and granpa had a nice long talk about wagons. This grandson loves his granpas wagon that is at his house and uses it everyday. So they talked of prices of them and places to buy them and what makes are the strongest etc. Maybe he will get one for his birthday his mom says.

We have company coming for the week-end ~~some of the family so my day will be spent doing some kind of baking and doing a little tidying~~like the upstairs beds are nicely made and ready set for to sleep in except for the boxes and tubs full of scraps of fabric piled on top of them. Think it would be very hospitable of me to tidy that up It is probably alot more comfortable to sleep in a bed with out boxes on it.Ha ha!
I am really frothing at the bit to start fixing up the greenhouse and getting it ready for to start seedlings in. It would need some kind of heat too. The old groundhog didn't help us out in that situation. Seeing as it is still very wintery out.
It would be nice to get the old chicken coop cleaned up and out and set it up with some kind of heat and get it ready for the future event of chicks. We would like both laying hens and meatbirds again.

He who works his land will have abundant food,
but he who chases fantasies lacks judgement.
12:11 NIV

in KJV it say it like this
He that tilleth his land shall
be satisfied with bread:
but he that followeth vain persons
is void of understanding.
Proverbs 12:11

As you go about your day
may your fantasies turn into
worthwhile realities.
