February Woes

     While I'd have to say I'm a pretty darn positive person  but I must admit February is a challenge, especially with the cold weather for so long. It is easy to focus on the weather and lack of life growing outside.  Oh gosh, and I'm tired of hearing the furnace run - whoa, regroup - thank God the furnace is running. 
     It's  the time of year I get the least calls for our business.  You start to wonder if you should continue to pay for the marketing.  Then, like yesterday, you get three calls, one booked a B&B stay and a culinary class.  Another wants to come in the spring with her friend of 40 years, a special time!  
     So, what do we do here on a day so cold - no guests to fill this particular day?  We headed to the Craft and Antique Mall in Painesville, Oh.  It was so busy. They are a collection of many-many vendors with the most unique items to add interest to our home.  I found an adorable tiny lamp to put in the chifferobe I just finished in chalk paint. It looks perfect!  I also found a wall hanging of a beautiful framed quilt square.  Just the right touch for the parlor.  
     When we got home we whipped up a big pot of broccoli-cheese soup and a batch of Morning Glory Muffins, invited our daughters and their families for a quick and chaotic supper.  It wasn't perfect.  It was noisy and the kids grumbled about eating healthy stuff, but hey, they were here!  And I got hugs.  So it was more than good.  
     After they left I settled into a comfy chair to read. I heard the plow go by a couple times but didn't even give anymore thought to more snow coming.  The warm feeling of having our family here drove off the cold for another day....
