A Valentine greeting to all...

I wanted to be sure to stop in and wish you all a happy Valentine's Day filled with love and those you love. (and those who love you too!)
Life has been full of the mundane chores that make up midwinter... barn chores (I really need to clean out the barn... we are expecting warm weather near 40 these next few days, so it's on my to-do list!), firewood, shoveling, and so on. I have been trying to live in the moment, and have been enjoying the snow outside immensely, but my eyes can't help but wander to the growing number of seed catalogs which arrive in the mailbox and get me thinking of the gardens and growing! I know that this month and next will bring more snowstorms and cold... even April can still be snowy. So I will continue to enjoy it all, and bide my time til spring is truely here!
Today will be spent babysitting two of my grandchildren, as several members of my family will be delivering flowers for the florist my daughter and brother work for. I cannot think of a better way to spend Valentine's Day, except having all four grandchildren here!
I hope you have a wonderful day too! xox ~Laura of Wildenblue Farm


  1. Here's wishing you a wonderful Valentine's Day Laura! Just keep thinking SPRING!!!!!

  2. Thank you, Mama-Bug! I was thinking spring earlier... it's a balmy 44 degrees out now, but the weather forecast just sent a severe weather report... high winds for tonight and cold with possible wind chills 15 to 25 degrees below zero and only about 17 degrees for the high tomorrow. So much for getting the barn cleaned. The poor chickens will have to be shuttered in tonight!
