Tuesday Thoughts

Here we are half way through February and just passed Valentine's Day which I hope you all enjoyed with lots of love and flowers and chocolates!

At the start of the month, I read a post by Kim, aka Farm Girl and she listed 10 things she loved about this month.  Kim always inspires and encourages me by her thoughtful, godly insights and the love of her family and farm.  I was encouraged then and there to write a similar post and want to share it with you today.

1. I love February because it means winter is nearly over and spring is waiting in the wings!

It's wonderful to see the buds appearing and never more beautiful and colourful!

2. Of course February is the month of love and I even managed to make a few more hearts to decorate with.
I think I could keep this one out all spring as it has button flowers on it.

This heart is a more primitive one, hand stitched and patched up - a mended heart!

3. I love this month as the birds start really chirping again.

4. The weather becomes a little milder here and on a good dry day I love being able to hang out the washing on the line!

5.I love the stretch in the evenings, the longer days mean we can get out and about more.

6. Having said that, I still love that we are altogether around a nice warm fire. Home is where the heart is, and I am a home bird!

7. These winter evenings are great for handwork and stitching and of course blogging! You are all wonderful friends and so encouraging.  It is always heartening to read your comments and to visit you in return and be inspired!

So that's my list and hope you are blessed!

  2. Aww the hearts are so pretty ..so cute
    Love them so much
    Big hugs x

  3. Beautiful, Christine...no signs of spring here in western NY. sigh...smiles

  4. Hi Miss Christine,

    Oh, that is so bee-u-tee-ful (just like you). And, February is Mom's birthday month.

    Last Saturday Dad brought the mail in and I got a Valentine's Day card from Wilbur, he lives in Australia. Oh, I just love my card and I sleep with it under my pillow every night. We see each other once a year, at Camp Good Bear. My heart skips a beat when I see him standing by the big oak tree. It's our traditional meeting place. Sigh.....

  6. Your blog is a cozy oasis, and since discovering it, I've loved dropping by to see what you're shared. I really enjoyed your post today - the 7 things you love about February really spoke to me! It's my favorite month because it's the month my son was born.

  7. Love this. I don't know if I could come up with that many things I like about February though...lol

  8. My sweetest Christine,
    I also love February ... maybe because it's the month in which I was born and when we do have so many birthdays ... or maybe because here, almost every year, is already Spring ... !

    Hope your week is off to a great start, I wish you so lovely days to come,
    sending much love to you

  9. Hi, Christine, your hearts are lovely, as is the sampler in your header. Nice effort on reasons to like February!

  10. Such lovely thoughts on why you love February, Christine. Spring is just around your corner as your lovely flowers reveal their delightful buds. Autumn is slowly appearing here with a change in the air and light, and of course the trees are beginning to change into their delightful Autumnal frocks. I love both your hearts, both are so pretty and could be decorating your home all year. Wishing you a lovely week....hope you steal a few moments to sit in front of that cosy fire of yours, and perhaps enjoy a little stitching.
