The sun is trying desparately to come out yet I do believe it is going to have a hard time of it today... The wonderful warmer weather our weatherman promised for the weekend was a figment of his imagination I believe. Since Friday it has been foggy and wet... Finally today the fog gave way and the sun is occasionally peeking his face out as if to tease. Needless to say we did not venture on our harley ride as intended. Yet have enjoyed out time indoors watching the playoffs. Rooting for the Colts and the Vikings to go to the Superbowl...
Although I have been unable to spend as much time outdoors this weekend as wanted I have gotten much done inside. Make a nice batch of ginger cookies and also a batch of toasted pecans... The pecans are going to be the death of me if I don't stop making them. It is a recipe for Cinnamon Toasted Pecans that is just too easy. And when they first come out of the oven and are nice and warm... Lets just say it is hard to eat just one or even just a few. Caught up on house cleaning as well as laundry which I know I will be thankful for as the week comes tomorrow. When and if that sun does decide to finally come out I want to be able to have ample time to go and enjoy it.
I have also started to purchase my seeds and potting cups. I am bound and determined to attempt to start many of my plants this spring in hopes of saving money as well as making my dollar stretch...We will see just how good that venture turns out. Right now I only have my herb seeds yet plan on getting at least some of my flower seeds this coming week. I also have all the seeds I collected from last summer to attempt to cultivate. We will see just how much of a green thumb I have.
I have also been gathering my plans for Imbolc. I am trying desparately to find some corn husk as I really do want to make some corn dollies yet have not found any yet. I will keep looking. My menu has been planned and I am eager to cook it. It seems that I continue to gain excitement daily as spring draws closer.
Speaking of Spring, it has always been a special time for me... Not my favorite season just a special time. A time of new beginnings and new awareness. This year is no different. I credit much of my awakening to this blog and the interaction with others of like thought. It has helped tremendously with confidence and also a boldness to continue and grow in my leadings. I go on and on sometimes over the same thing or so it seems yet it is only because it is such a blessing to me. I have learned that patience is such a fine thing and a virtue that is truly an asset. I am not always eager to learn of it yet am always glad when the lesson is over and the knowlege has been betowed to me. Why do I speak of patience, mainly because it is because of patience that I have finally found the road that I travel.
So much I hear others speak of a desire to know, a frustration of feeling they are on the wrong path, saying the wrong words in their spells, or not living their lives exactly as it should be when it comes to their beliefs. I smile as I remember such days and still have them on occasion. Ok maybe often, yet I also know that if one truly seeks with an eager heart and true focus that they will be led in the right direction.
Ok, now as I read over this all... I can not help but wonder how in the world I got from the Colts and the Vikings in the Super Bowl to trusting your heart in your walk to enlightenment. Ah.... a woman's mind... how it does wander..... Well to go full circle... the game is still on and I need to go and check the score... Until tomorrow.... Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
