No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. – Hal Borland
This week marked a visible increase in daylight arriving earlier and lingering well after 5PM so this quote seemed most appropriate for today. And then I saw something that made me really smile! Only
35 57 days until spring!! (Thanks, Karen for bursting my bubble! LOL)
You are welcome.
Thinking About – Insomnia and how many of us struggle with it. There is a part of me that wonders if men suffered from this same issue for the same reasons (I am looking at you, menopause – in all your various stages) you know there would be some amazing solutions that actually would work.
Grateful For – Welcoming in the last weekend of January!! It has been a long month but by this time next week the brighter and much shorter February will be upon us! Oh, and yes there only
35 57 days until spring!!
Inspired To – Do more sewing this weekend – specifically I am going to work on a Thea Rachelle Raglan. I have been looking at images that some very creative people have made, and I think I have the direction I want to go in my mind – I especially like the idea of a shirt that I can layer under and over things! Now, I just need to get the pattern cut out and marked so that the sewing can begin!
Fascinated By – My red Amaryllis – two stalks of blooms – one with 4 buds, one with 5 buds! And, that color!!
That’s all I have for this week! Have a good weekend every and Happy Friday!
Sorry to burst your bubble, but spring doesn’t arrive until 57 days. 🙁 January 6 days, February 28 days, March 21 days = 6+28+20=57. The first of March is in 35 days, though. 🙂 That is definitely a bright spot.
I am loving the earlier daylight and the longer evenings. Some days I even get home from work while there is still daylight. Yay!
Your Amaryllis (Amarylli??) are beautiful. I would probably kill them if I tried to grow them. You and that green thumb. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
That insomnia this is real. I now sleep through the night but wake up early and can’t go back to sleep. I have claimed the hours between 4:30 – 6 am as my reading time
I have just noticed that it’s still light out this week for my walk home from work, and I haven’t really needed my glasses to drive to pick up my daughter at school (I only wear them when I’m driving at night). It may still be winter, but we’re taking baby steps toward spring!
I enjoy all the seasons, but I am really looking forward to seeing what pops up in our garden in the spring. We didn’t live here last spring and I think there are FLOWERS!!! LOL
Your amaryllis is simple beautiful. That red is spectacular.
Love that amaryllis in my favorite color no less. My most recent amaryllis only had leaves which was very disappointing. Happy Friday!j
Beautiful! My Betty has bloomed as well…she’s a real dark red. Just gorgeous. Have a wonderful weekend Kat!
Such a pretty, hopeful, joyful amaryllis!
Beautiful amaryllis and a hopeful outlook. Spring will come.
The days are definitely getting longer and I’m grateful for that.
This week I really noticed the longer days … it’s such a relief every single year when it happens! Good luck with your sewing … January is gonna be the first month since I caught the handsewn bug last summer that I haven’t spent any time on it. I have fabric for a Thea Rachelle, too!
The Hal Borland quote is so right, I sent it off to all my northern relatives, to give them a smile.
The sun is moving, I noticed it this week too where I sit to knit and had to put a shade in the window, though in the next week it will move that much more and I won’t need the shade.
Time goes by and no spring skips its turn.
I want an amaryllis;-))! Yours is lovely – the red certainly pops and is most welcomed on these still dark winter days…looking forward to seeing your sewing project!
I’m an odd ball who loves winter a lot. But then when you all are singing the praises during summer, I’m grumbling on the inside . The days are brighter and longer each day and that makes it nice.
Gorgeous, I have several buds that are growing like wild fire. Can’t wait to see them in bloom. I do need more stakes . .
