Late last week I came home from work and the sun was shining in through our front window... for the first time this year. It was like the sun gods decided to sprinkle a little magic in my house that evening. It had that golden dark yellow hue on everything, just like you see in the movies. It felt like a late Summer night - everything warm and fuzzy and still. It felt damn good.
It got me thinking about the warm Summer months. I just wanted to sprawl in a field with a blanket, a bottle of wine and a picnic loaded with fresh off the vine tomatoes with fresh baked bread and some oozy cheese. A girl can dream...
Speaking of Summer, have you started planning your gardens for the Spring? Do you grow your own vegetables? Herbs? Chickens? How much space do you have? How do you make it work? This is the first year in a while where I don't really have a space to grow anything - no outdoor area. Let me live through you. What are you planting??
