I’ve been trying to fight the stagnation and claustrophobia of the last vestiges of winter by finding exciting places, interesting projects and generally trying to keep moving.

For those of you not native to Minnesota winters, this is the point in the year when for many of us the extreme cold, paired with what feel like endless snow can get to be a little discouraging.  At least for the adults in the house. SO far the kids have taken it mostly in stride, building snow forts and sledding, ice skating and baking.

All I know is, I’m more than ready for spring. Today was a little nicer. The snow began to melt in places and it’s stating to feel like maybe someday spring will come again.
