I'm really looking forward to the weekend.  Relaxation.  Getting outside.  And although I don't think it's very likely, I'm hoping to see more of the sun.  I've actually been enjoying the misty, foggy days we've been having - especially those we've been lucky enough to spend at the coast or in the forest - but when I do see the sun, I realize how much I miss it.  

I work from home, and the desk to which I'm shackled for hours every day looks out a window into our back yard.  We have a plan to transform the back yard this spring, making it part raised garden beds, with some space saved for a patio-like area in the middle - in my dreams with room for small low benches and a fire pit - and the rest with a little bit of grass/gravel and as much lavender as I can fit in. 

I know we've got a lot of winter yet, but every day I  see the sun I'm grateful, and dreaming of the sunny days soon to come, feeling the warmth, and getting my hands in the dirt.
