If I had to pick just one thing about New England to love… it would be that there are 4 distinct seasons. We don’t get that here up in Washington state. And let me tell you Bob, I am totally looking forward to each and everyone of them when we finally bust out of here someday.
I love that the ground could be frozen solid for months at a time.
So you can REST. And do other things.
Heather told me that cabin fever is a real thing over there. And that you need to plan “projects” to do during the winter months so you don’t go nuts. So far this winter she has taken a beekeeping class and a sewing class to learn how to make an apron. She’s made soap in her crockpot and now she’s thinking about building a greenhouse with one of her neighbors.
I could totally do that. I’d probably spend my winters hooking rugs by the woodstove, trying my hand at wood carving and make candles to give away as gifts and to use throughout the year.
I would so love to jump on board that whole mindset… and I think the drastic changes in weather would help.
Everything is go go go around here…
And I’m ready for a change.
I had so much fun this past week on the east coast. Looking back though all the photos I took I can barely stand it.
Heather! You are AWESOME. Thanks for much for your hospitality, sitting around the kitchen table for 3 hours each night and putting up with my bringing boxes of pastries into you house and making everyone eat them. 😉
I had a blast.
