For once, and I swear it must be the first time ever, I am actually looking forward to this winter.
I hate the cold.
I hate the snow.
I am usually stir crazy by the end of the winter and ready for days at the park, picnics with the kids, hikes in the mountains.
Oh wait. I have two small kids. I don’t get out for hikes anymore…
With all the work that went on this summer in our side yard garden, our backyard mess, and extensive time away, I am ready to snuggle up in bed on a few cold nights and re-learn how to knit. And this year I vow to make a hat. I have always wanted to knit myself a hat.
I really want to sew something for myself. A cute farm dress like Farmama has made on her site, check it out here. Maybe something pieced together from a couple thrift store finds. A long, flowy skirt. Just one of those things would be nice to get to.
I would like to cook more from scratch.
I took my first ever drumming lesson last night and LOVED it. Can’t wait to score one from Santa and learn even more.
The number of things I find on other blogs I want to try to do too is endless. Really. Endless.
And last night as I was laying in bed thumbing through this months issue of Mary Jane’s Farm, which landed in my mailbox yesterday, I began to look forward to long dark nights. Time hunkered down and inside due to snow; evenings spent catching up on all the dream projects I have collected in my mind all year. Projects I want to share with you, so you can try em’ too!
I am ready.
To come in from the outside.
To come back to soul time.
To enjoy some homemade hot cocoa.
Spill it: What are you most looking forward to about the upcoming winter? Are there any projects you have been dying to get snowed in to try?Tweet
