This morning, as we left the house to go to a birthday party, there was blue sky. There even was birdsong. I remembered the feeling, that maybe, one day, spring will arrive.
But now, there is still an icy wind blowing and this evening everything is wet again, of course.
It is February today! Traditionally the month when the novelty of winter has worn off and I’ve had enough of the grey and the cold. But so far, so good.
I broke in book 2 of my diary today: bright red. Now people can stop wondering why I write my shopping lists into my passport (colour and size of the January diary were a bit suspicious like that).
There’s been a bit of knitting today, a bit of gnome stitching. There is chocolate brownie in the oven and I have a feeling it will go particularly well with that raspberry frozen yogurt in the freezer.
Tomorrow my plan is to keep my phone and the laptop switched off. (It feels a bit wrong that this should be unusual.)
There may be more cake, and definitely coffee. There will probably be a lot of puddle jumping and hopefully a bit of that blue sky again.
Weekending with Amanda. I hope yours is a happy one.
