Oh the Weather Outside is Spring Like!!

The last few days have been glorious here in East Tennessee. The temperatures have been into the 60's and the children have wanted to be outside a lot. I enjoyed being down in the shop yesterday planting seeds. I opened the garage door and let all the glorious sunshine pour into the area. I love being outside so I too have enjoyed the last few days. I know that this won't last long so I am soaking up the sunshine every chance I get. I also love winter. I enjoy the slower days of wintertime and I will enjoy that too when it comes back around in just a few days.

I did get my seeds planted. I decided to germinate them in the upstairs bathroom. I am always concerned that the shop will not stay warm enough to germinate seeds. The last few days haven't been a problem, but I am sure colder weather will come in the next few days. My husband wasn't delighted to find containers of seeds floating in the bathtub. I told him just to use the other bathroom and it would be fine. He insisted that the shop was warm enough, and he is probably right. I just wanted to have a little extra precaution. If he grumbles too much, I will move them back to the shop.

grace and peace,

Up here in Wisconsin we've had a week of 40's, rain, and heavy fog from the snowbanks. I even saw my first poor worm of the year, driven out from his home below, trying to make his way across a the last snow drift in my yard. Dropping him on the cold grass at least gives him a fighting chance.
