It starts to happen every year about this time, cabin fever is setting in.  I need to get outside some, I must get outside.  It’s cold still and there is nothing I can do in the gardens.  The sun is up longer, but it still gets dark pretty early.  But I have to get out of the house.

I can only knit, crochet and sew so much.  My hands need to be in the earth.  My houseplants could use some extra attention.  Repotting some of them would let me play in the soil.  That should relieve some of the fever, but probably not all of it.  I’ll still be inside.

It’s time for a walk.  I’ll dress warmly and walk carefully, there are patches of ice.  Even in winter, there are plenty of signs of life.  We still have birds around and geese flying.  I’ll surely see at least one squirrel.  The Evergreens are still pretty and with no leaves on them, the other trees can show their real form.

I walk just might do the trick.
