Vintage Trailer Agrees With Groundhog--Early Spring!

The groundhog didn't see his shadow today--all the major networks carried the happy news. According to lore, this means an early spring.

But we knew this already, because the vintage trailer didn't see her shadow, either!

Minus the jesting, Groundhog's Day, February 2, is the halfway point between the winter solstice (shortest day of the year) and the spring equinox (first day of spring). It the northern hemisphere, it marks the noticeable return of light, at both ends of the day.

This alone is meant to stir the spirit--and does, in ways that make us eager to stir from hibernation, step outside, and breathe in all that a coming new season has to offer.

'February fever' is a real thing. And a good motivator, too, producing the energy to plan, go, and do.

What do you think--do you have February fever this year?


  1. You bet! Been procrastinating all winter and today I finally went out to HaulEwood and got some work done!

  2. Oh yea! I have been wanting to pull that tarp off like you can't believe:)

  3. I recently saw your beautiful embroidery seasons camping pillow through a Facebook post of camper dyi crafts. I understand that it takes quite a while which makes it too costly to sell. Did you make up the patterns or did you buy the.

    1. Hi, Deborah. I bought the stamped patterns from someone who sold them on etsy. Her store hasn't been active in some time. Occasionally, she will offer a stamped pattern on eBay. Seller name is lifeisabeach. Hope this helps.

  4. Just got my annual Arizona Sun fix to help me make it through February!
