Spring Dreaming...

She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands...

--from Proverbs 31 

The calendar says spring... Though we've had finer days lately, and some sunshine, we're still waiting for real spring to happen here. Snow still surrounds us! In the meantime I'm thinking spring thoughts! 

To kick-off spring I've begun a new Bible study via Holy Bible, SHE 31-Woman of Valor, a deep 31-day study exploring the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31.  LOVE starting my day with this!

Oooo... spring seed and flower catalogues have come in the mail, and my inbox. Between these and some gardening books borrowed from the library, I've been sketching out some w-a-y too ambitious ideas for garden additions and improvements...  that will probably only happen in my dreams! haha...

We have a new mini windowsill greenhouse and a few seed packets ready to get some things started for the garden soon! This mini greenhouse is also suitable for growing micro leaves/greens indoors all year round, and I look forward to using it more indoors next autumn and winter. Yes, the mini greenhouse is plastic.. *sigh* ... but it is very sturdy stuff, and we'll have this for many years. 

And scribbling down some ideas, things to do, to try and play with during the spring...

In my cup is Yogi Tea's Classic Chai Tea. It's a wonderful tea with a warming spice of ginger, cinnamon and cardamom. I have been drinking this regularly all winter, I do believe this tea with a couple of teaspoons of our Spiced Lemon Infused Honey has kept me well during the cold/flu season. Still drinking it... And I do appreciate the uplifting tags on the tea bags... 

What's lifting you up at the moment?! 


  1. Good morning, Tracy! A beautiful, peaceful world of coming spring here this morning. The tea, your meditations and reading and the promise of a lovely garden, indoors and out. Sounds very good to me!

    1. Wishing to. Springtime lovely day there, Jeanie! :)))

  2. thank you darling girl of the north! (for such beauty and blessing!)
    and for so many things throughout the year . xo
    and I cannot wait to try yogi tea's classic chai tea. I'm not a tea drinker really.
    but you have made it sound wonderful. and I'm trying to get healthier and stay healthy!
    I love your notebook.
    and it reminded me of the one I filled with drawings and plans for the lawn and little patio around my small cottage when I owned it.
    it never hurts to have a plan in mind! it only makes sense. and it's so much fun!

    1. Fun to hear about notebook and plans, Tammy... I think us women have a way of making up grand plans. ;) The tea is great for the colder months...the spicy warmth really energizes the body, I think. Let me know what you think if you give it a try! Here's a warm ((HUG))

    2. Ohh, I love your Spring planning ideas Tracy. You are always so inspiring to me. I will have to check out the bible study. I love the Proverbs, and I love the idea the idea of studying about being a virtuous woman. Loving your garden plans also! My expectations always exceed the reality! haha Love and hugs. xoxo

  3. I do like your spring dreams. Today is the best day of spring that we have had. It has been a bit cold for this time of year. I am looking forward to the planting of some flowers and perhaps a small garden too. My husband likes to garden so maybe it will be a big one.
    The mini greenhouses are such a great idea.
    I like the study of SHE 31. I love the stories from the women of the Bible. Starting with Eve and all the other marvelous women and especially those that were true disciples of Christ.
    Sending loving thought and hugs for you dear friend.

  4. I share your dreams for a garden, but think that mine are also a little too ambitious! Still, it is fun browsing through the seed catalogues and making some plans on paper. Marie x

  5. What fun to journal about Spring plans! And looks like you can get started on planting seeds with your windowsill greenhouse.
