It always amazes me how much fabric I need to make a rag rug.
After steadily cutting up jeans and making strips this week I have several piles ready so that I can start my rug next week.
Thankfully the jeans are free. I’ve saved jeans from all of my kids, myself & husband for a few years. I have no idea if I have enough or not.
Every time I drive in and out of my drive way I look at all the leaves covering the grass. I feel both frustration and anticipation as I think about being ready to plant my garden in the spring.
I can’t WAIT to get outside this spring! AND Oh there is so much to do out there!
Spring work anticipation
My mother-in-law always says she hates spring. I've never agreed with her but I can understand her perspective this year. There’s just too much to do and its easy to feel overwhelmed.
The gray sky is getting to me a bit. We’ve been sick and I’m SICK of indoors. I am craving my garden therapy.
I’d even mow the grass if it was green.
But it is February and we are slogging on with catching up on school so there can be more time outside in April, May and June.
March brings us the promise of spring with slightly warmer temperatures but we can still have a lot of snow happen here in mid Missouri.
On Valentine's Day, I didn’t want to do ANYTHING. Except sip tea and be lazy.
After spending more time than I'm used to in the car Friday and Saturday, I was stiff and sore and didn’t feel like I could move. Plus hubby was really sick--on V-day, it never fails to happen.
I knew this was the recipe for for a pity party and general BAD mood.
February. One of those LONG months of being inside and doing school.
I don’t like February. Or January for that matter. But this year I’m looking at the calendar and feeling seriously overwhelmed and guilty.
School has been on the back burner since surgery in December
