After catching a terrible flu, spending a chunk of the first two months indoor, finally I can start the new year making a debut at this blog as well. So how are you my friends, are you coping with the winter blues ?
Myself are feeling a bit out of energy and a bit depressed about the cold, dark weather. I have to admit, this is the hardest time for me of the year. It`s the darkness, the lack of light that makes it so hard. It feels like it will never ever be a sunny bright day again. Of course I know that`s not true. Although I love winter, with hot stews, woolly socks and the wonderful noise from our wood burning stove, I have trouble keeping my spirit up. At this point Spring seems very very far away.

To keep me going a bought myself a couple of new books, a new plant for our living room, and I`ve booked a weekend in Gothenburg for spring shopping at my birthday also. That will certainly cheer me up ! I also started looking for inspiration for my vegetable garden/green house buying seeds. Choosing seeds can be a bit of a challenge because I am tempted to try everything at once. This year I will be growing spring onion, chili`s, beetroot and of course a various of sweet and juice tomatoes. Just the though of it makes me itch getting started already. I always get a buzz from watching green shoots poke through the soil. I was brought up om frozen peas (nothing wrong with frozen peas, they are a healthy and culinary success if you ask me) but it is such a wonderful feeling to grow your own vegetables. It is the ultimate feel good experience.

Where do you look for inspiration when all is frozen and covered with snow ?
