Do you ever feel like you are living in time warp.... every body is moving ahead and you are stuck behind...
That's a little what I feel like right now....
...almost everywhere I look on blogland, everyone appears to be obsessed with spring a-comin'!
Oh, absolutely yes, I too love spring... freshness, new growth, spring rains, spring flowers...
...but I am not ready to give up the frosty season just yet.
I'm not ready to give up the birds feeding at my feeders, because come spring there will be so many fewer as they set about giving birth to babies, tending their nests, wallowing in their own merriment of spring's sweet blessings.
I don't want to abandon the moments when I can just sit and dream about what spring and summer will bring, putting off the enormous amount of tasks I know are waiting to fill my days when those seasons come... when activity will grow into a flurry as I try to accomplish all I want to do in those few short months when this white blanket will no longer be covering the ground, beckoning me to lay in its fluffy thickness and creating snow angels as though I were a child.
I will miss the hot pot of tea sitting on the fireplace all day, just waiting for me to stop and take some respite while I play with special creations.
For now, cozy and lazy by my fire, I sit and peer through all the spring seed catalogs and dream about how my garden could look, and I will make a list of all the seeds I want to purchase; and then when spring finally arrives and the stores start selling all their pretty plants I know my eyes will grow large and then I will buy one or two or three way too many plants so that by the time I have planted so many I will already be sick of planting and I will stare at the pile too many I bought, sigh and say "what was I thinking", and many will be left by the wayside to their fate in tiny little nursery pots!
I like my little time warp, I don't want to move out of it yet... I think I will just rest here for a while longer and embrace it~
