We have almost 8" of snow and more to come this week. Like Garrison Keillor said on the Prairie Home Companion radio show the other day, I am in no way complaining, taking into account what Boston and other areas have just gone through.
The view out the kitchen window (through the snowflake curtains) was dark and snowy this morning but even so, that little crystal dish garden gave my day the green light. One thing about snow days is you get to do what you really want to do and not what you think you should do. For me, that's been stitching a little, knitting more, reading the Outlander book Drums of Autumn, looking at seed catalogs, drinking tea all day long, and doing art stuff. Journal52's week 7 is valentines -- I changed one word of the Byron Katie quote, turning like into love. I really believe it and I don't think she'll mind.
On another note, I've already read twice today that February is the time to do early spring cleaning because its name is based on the Latin word februum, meaning purification. And purification is cleaning. It's all really very positive if one can only get in the right frame of mind to do it.
Today is a waxing moonday in Taurus. As the moon grows into fullness, other things grow right along with it. It's one of those things that you don't have to believe in, it just sort of happens that way regardless. Our bodies absorb things better now (both nutrients and toxins) and we hold onto water weight more now too, have you noticed? This same principle applies to gardening -- the closer we get to a full moon, the more seeds will absorb and hold water from the soil. After the full moon things begin to swing the other way.
Thanks for visiting -- this quote makes me smile....and I do believe in miracles.
We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don't believe in miracles?
