I find myself at loose ends. Since I'm in the garden business, work slows to almost nothing at this time of year. The cold weather is a drag. I keep thinking, if I lived in a place where I expected it to be this cold for this long I would just deal with it, I would be ready for it, I would go on along with my life like nothing was strange. But it's not supposed to be this cold here and so I take it personally. Being stuck inside is messing with my routine, I want to be outside working on chores. Even being a bit more comfortable inside the house would be nice. About the only place I'm happy lately is either standing right next to the woodstove, under a blanket on the couch or in the bed. Not a good situation for getting much accomplished.
But maybe I'll snap out of it and get moving again on something, anything. The days will start getting longer again next week so that should help. In the meantime, I'm doing things like making yogurt. It's really easy and so delicious and cheaper than buying it for sure. Of course having amazing, delicious fresh jersey milk helps the situation considerably.
