Thank you for the suggestions from yesterday’s post to just keep slogging, knitting, spinning, and watching a facebook video. Today as I was doing the farm chores, I started noticing what I thought might be signs of spring. The peacock was displaying his feathers to his sister. I did not get a photo of him doing it, but here’s a couple other pictures of him afterward:
I have been noticing that the geese have been fighting. And our the chicks that had rained from the hay loft have started laying eggs:
Finally as I was walking back to the house I noticed this:
Croci!!! It lifted my spirits. But then naturally I started thinking about having to find the time and energy to get the winter tasks completed before spring, like pruning the orchard, building another bee hive, battling the blackberries, fixing fencing, etc. But rather than accomplish any of these projects, I think I will knit!
