Today, it snowed. And snowed and snowed and snowed. This is our first real snow of the winter and the kids are outside enjoying it immensely- even though Miriam needs the bigger kids to make paths for her so that she can walk anywhere.
Today, I feel better. After three days of feeling awful, I am feeling almost myself. I am thankful for antibiotics, teacher-sick-days, and a husband who gets up in the middle of the night to fetch me medicine. It gets me every time how much feeling better feels...well, better!
Today, I made cookies (a true sign I'm on the up and up). I thought the kids deserved a treat after a few days of mild neglect. Sam bagged warm ones and went traipsing through the snow to deliver some to neighbors.
Today, I am dreaming of garden planning (in spite of the snow). Jamey and I are hoping to sit down and plan the garden tomorrow night. He with his binder and me with my canning journal. We'll discuss what we want and what we don't, what we need more of and less of. We're hoping to streamline even more this year and try our hand at tilling our garden after years of using the mulch/non-tiller method. More on that to come.
Today, I am also dreaming of blueberries. My birthday isn't until June, but I told Jamey the only thing I wanted was blueberry bushes. He bought ten plants and soon, they'll be finding their way into the ground at the end of the sunflower patch.
Today, despite all this goodness, my heart is heavy for friends going through really difficult times. How I wish I could share more than just my thoughts and prayers.
I am ever so thankful for today.
