I’m not a “go south for the winter” type of gal.  My Russian-heritage instilled me with a quality = struggle outlook.  I’d feel like a weak-y taking a tropical vacation.

Bring on that sunshine!

BUT, yesterday I planted tomato, cilantro and lettuce seeds in my kitchen.

I can’t wait for spring.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead. – Louisa May Alcott

  1. Same here. If I were to take a tropical vacation (at least in my imagination) I’d spend the entire time feeling guilty about what’s not being done back on the farm because of my absence. The animals aren’t allowed vacations in any case. The reality of this personality flaw is that suffering through routine, obligation, and responsibility is more satisfying (in a funny, quirky, sort of way) What say you? D

    • True, there is so much satisfaction at the end of the day when everyone is tucked in, aisles are swept, everyone is munching on their evening rations…. Makes every night a celebration! I guess it is all what you are accustomed to.

    • That’s my second nudge to put some basil in! Thanks for more inspiration, thanks for the stop-by!

  2. Beautiful. I complain when it’s 46 in the afternoon! Yikes!!! I forgot how cold real cold feels. But nothing is as pristine and fairyland like as what I see in your pictures. Marsha 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you, Marsha! It’s true – the white background is the right background for this time of year around here. Can’t have it without cold temps to accompany it!

  3. Beautiful scenes you have there, best enjoyed from a great distance by those of us with thin blood. Great idea to plant some seeds.

  4. Hello from Jeffersonville, Vermont. I’ve been having fun snapping pictures as I walk around our town and sharing them on my facebook page. Every one makes me appreciate what is right here and when the sun shines in winter it is magic. I like the idea of “planting” spring in the kitchen. A foot in both worlds and a hopeful attitude. Glad I found your blog. Have a good new year.

    • Thank you! Sounds like we both are trying to get the most out of our seasons! No use fighting winter, right? Thanks for the stop by, and stay warm this week in Jeffersonville! February and shorter days are coming!
