Very early, the other day as I walked along the beach, a dear friend came to my mind, as he often does as I stroll along with my thoughts. I was loving the quiet full silence as I looked out over the water.

Yeah, I know it’s freezing out there. But I still planted my leek seeds.  Heck, I was suppose to be stirring 40 pounds of soaps, and had to put the the time to good use right? It’s the one thing that didn’t get into the garden last year, but it will for sure this year. 🙂 Just think, only a few more weeks left til I can play in the real dirt again! And there was still light past 4:30 last night!  Thinking Spring!
