Without much fanfare and fireworks, Of Field and Forest has some seeds started. Chives, parsley, lemon balm to begin - with tomatoes up next. I learned last year that grow lights would be necessary to fulfill light requirements. Although our house is quite bright, the south facing windows are all taken up with countertops and our woodstove.
Maybe I am about to be preaching to the converted but would you look at that wool blanket. Turns out that they are very useful at keeping seed starts off the floor when said floor lives over an unheated crawlspace. Is there nothing that wool blankets can't do?
Felting time was found thanks to the reality that it was just not the kind of weekend to be outside all the time. We pretty much had all the kinds of precipitation - snow, freezing rain and rain.
My first week back to work reminded me about the need to use weekends wisely. Yes, food prep and such for the week is important, but so is taking time to do the things that make one feel full. It is precious, time is.
