It's January and all I can think of is SUMMER! People talk about spring fever...usually happens about March for me...not this time. I am so wanting to be on a beach, sipping ice cold water and enjoying the sun! I can not wait for summer to get here. I plan to live at the lake with the kids this year or in our small pool. I can't wait to get things started for the garden too. This year I plan to do straw bale gardening. It will be interesting to see if it works as well as I have read it does. I sure hope so, I hate wasting money on new things but I think this might be a great new adventure! While I think and plan what I want to garden and sit here looking out the front window, there is a lite dusting of snow on the cars and I hear the roads are slick with ice. Sigh!
We are having a snow day and I have spent the day talking to friends on Facebook, searching for school curriculum for next year and just enjoying a quiet day to relax. This week has been packed full of birthdays. Eli and Sara turned 9 this week. Oh how I miss those baby/toddler days. I miss rocking them to sleep while they snuggle up with their noses against my neck. Gone are those days but having older children has it's benefits too. I want to capture every day and cherish each moment because I know before long I will be longing for them to be 9 again. "All my days are written in His book," Ps139:16
