It was very much a working weekend, but so worth it for a refreshing start to the week. Tomorrow I'm going to start going for morning walks, outdoors. I'll bundle up and put my hat on, but outdoors I will go. It's time, hibernation is coming to a close.
Each Monday I release new material to many lovely souls in my current workshop, each Monday I'm amazed at the gratitude I have for them, for this work, for the timing.
After months of moving, setting up our new home, preparing a workshop, and reestablishing homeschool parental roles - Emily and I finally dove into our Vintage Remedies Family Herbalist course. Oh, this is so exciting! It is designed to run over 18 months so there is plenty of time to enjoy it. What a wonderful collaborative learning experience for the two of us.
I can hardly believe it, but Thursday's forecast predicts 62°, we're planning to make the most of it! Seeds and supplies are gathered and waiting for planting; wool sweaters, wool socks, and wool slippers are ready for tossing aside (even if just for a day). We have a long way to go before Spring is here, but these early tastes are treasured for sure.
Isn't it beautiful? I can't really describe how excited I am to curl up with this book in the days and weeks to come. To see Rhonda's practical wisdom, life experience, and hard work come to fruition makes me so happy. I know her words will teach and inspire me greatly, but the beauty and styling of this book took my breath away the moment I opened it. What a fine mail day.
Not a bad amount of light out there for 5:45 in the evening. So much hope.
