These days I feel as though I am in limbo – just waiting. Waiting for Spring to arrive in full force. No more of this teasing. No more snow coming down so thick it blinds you and the next moment the sun is shining. No more cold wind and icy rain.
I am waiting. Waiting for warm sunshine. Warm breezes. The sweet smell of new grass. The constant song of the robin.
It is coming. The signs are there. The sunshine that drives the snow showers into hiding for a few moments. The day here and there that grows warm. The slant of the sun that is a little less to the South and a little more Northward. A few robins willing to risk the dipping temps. Spring will soon be upon us. Hurrah!
While I am waiting I am organizing my spring/summer calendar. Can you believe I am marking things in May and June? And considering some tentative plans for July. At the rate it is going we need to schedule a summer vacation trip to see our family in Kansas asap or it might not make it onto the summer schedule!
While I am waiting I am knocking out some projects and accumulating more. Listing some new items in my etsy shop. Contemplating the best place to spend advertising money for more exposure. It’s a competitive market out there – so much talent, so many great things. It’s easy to get lost in the great creative sea of etsy.
Yesterday while I waited for Spring to arrive I made a dress for a sweet friend’s daughter to wear in a wedding this Saturday. And while I was waiting I took my nine-year-old to an orthodontist appointment. And then we went shopping. She loves the one-on-one time with Mom. And she always gets something too 🙂 Pants at Salvation Army and candy and mouthwash at Wal-Mart. And some cool fabric for a skirt at Jo-Anns. She called it a good day. In the evening I cut out one of my girls Easter dresses. I am so excited about the fabric I have for these and cannot wait to show their dresses to you.
Today while I wait for Spring I am going to Bible Study. And I might work on Easter dresses.
There are 8 chairs I need to slipcover while I am waiting for Spring. They just might run into actual ‘spring-is-here’ time though 🙂 One of my favorite times to sew is when the windows can be open and the sweet warm air of Spring is wafting in. Oh but it’s hard to wait!
What do you do while you wait for Spring?
Happy ‘Waiting-for-Spring’ if you live in the midwest. If you live in one of the areas where Spring has already arrived soak up some sun for me today please! 😀
