Come in, sit a spell, and warm up...

We tried to stay busy this weekend.  We burned some piles, cleaned house, and did numerous small projects.
I shoveled my way into the greenhouse to see what was going on inside.  It was 55 degrees and smelled of earth.  A nice place to sit for a spell.
I finished all of my blocks.  When I laid everything out, I came to the realization I may have gone overboard.   I have a lot more blocks than I think I need.
I am not a patient woman and quickly started piecing them together.  It is turning out better than I anticipated.  I found out quickly one has to be very aware as to which way the patches are turned when starting a row.  Why is it the only way I seem to learn is the hard way?

 Our cabin feels empty, but we have to keep moving forward.  Staying busy is all one can do.

How are things in your corner of the world?  Are you keeping busy?
