February is a tough month. Spring is still way off, but I can't help but look for it. I want to be outside, but I can't. I have tons of things I could and should be doing inside, but I don't want to.
February is my daydreaming month. Despite needing to plan meals, or do dishes, or fold clothes, I sit and dream. I sketch yet another idea for my someday house. I think I've drawn up dozens of house plans through the years. We probably won't ever actually build it, but I like to imagine it and draw it, yet again.
I plan my someday garden when I should be planning out my now garden. It's so small though, it won't take much time to figure out. I dream about my future homestead. Where I'll put the chickens, plant the apple trees, put the herbs and hang the hammock.
I get antsy to get on with it, even though I know we are here for the next few years. Patience now so I can get my dreams later. (repeat over and over...) In years past, I got through this time by planting seeds and watching them grow a little everyday in the window sill. Here, however, I don't have good windows to do that, so I'm trying to do a little winter sowing outside. I'm excited about that, but it's out there, in the cold. I can't peek at them while in my bare feet, sipping hot chocolate.
There are things I can work on here and now. I should make a list, but I already have several lists going on and I have just ignored them. Maybe by writing it here, I'll pay more attention to it.
I need to make the meatloaf for tonight, and remember to cook the asparagus that is sitting in the fridge.
I need to plant a few more seeds and check on the ones I already planted.
I have several sewing projects that I want to work on, but I don't quite have the inspiration yet. I want to sew an apron, more wool slippers and an Easter dress for the dancing queen.
I want to get out my wool spinning stuff and work on that a bit, but I also need to come up with an idea of what to make out of it as a gift for my sister who gave me all the stuff. (don't say socks...) I feel kind of silly working on something with no finished product in mind.
I need to do some mending.
And apparently, I need to put together the lego Ironman control center...
