My seed catalogue came in the mail! 2020 saw us start a vegetable garden for the first time. This year I hope to be plan our garden out a little more and it has been surprisingly fun to browse through the seed catalogue and think about what we can do.
Our local COVID numbers made a significant drop in the last two weeks from where they were in November/early December. Our community is also set to begin receiving vaccinations this week. (We are rural enough that we are slightly behind the areas that have already been receiving vaccines.)
Sunshine! January (and a lot of December…and November…) has been pretty rainy so far so when the sun appeared on Wednesday and the temperatures soared to 10 degrees, it felt like the whole world was singing. I didn’t get a single thing on my To Do List done that day but it was a good one. Rose and I took a long walk to the library in the morning and after school the girls and I played at the park until it got too cold.
This tree in our yard that got one day of sun and started to bloom:
Rose’s new habit of randomly yelling out, “MUM! I LOVE you!” with all the force her 3-year-old voice can carry. She’ll yell it at Pearl. She’ll greet Peter at the door with an “I love you!” yell. It’s pretty great.
