A few weeks back (or is it months now, boy does time just fly!), I had posted about us starting to tear down the kitchen cabinets. Although, the project has been put on hold to deal with a few more pressing home renovations, i.e. redoing our one and only bathroom because of having to replace a cracked acrylic bath tub, the one thing that has still been going on is my dream of having my very own window herb garden.
As you can see, I finally have a few that have sprouted despite of the cold. The left would be little wisps of garden sage and the right is Genovese basil. Although I’m starting to seriously doubt I’ll be able to harvest from either of them before late spring, just watching them sprout and grow has been a real motivation. We’ve broken out the grow lamps and I now have some of my medicinal herbs in sprouting beds. I’m hoping that by late March, both shelves will be bursting with greenery.

And with the days still very chilly (although, it is suppose to warm up nicely this afternoon, keep your fingers crossed for us), we have been finding ways of keeping busy. Spring inspired crafts, brightly colored toys, over heated rooms and morning popcorn movie dates have kept us smiling. It is my true belief that a warm body, warm heart, warm spirit and warm soul are all as equally important in these days of continuous cold. There isn’t much in life that is certain, but for now at least, the turning of the seasons is. Spring is coming my friends… hang in there!
