Ok. So I did a little math. And though February is a shorty of a month, by its end, there will be 50+ extra minutes of daylight per day (at least here at the 32nd Parallel) that we didn't get at the beginning. I think that's pretty good for such a wee little month. We're going to need all that extra sunlight for Spring and Summer's bumper crops. In the meantime, we're still trying to keep it seasonal around my house, and Heather is back at it at Home Ec 101 with a new batch of seasonal recipes featuring some of my favorite cruciferous veggies.
And because someone suggested it in the comments, I've created a desktop wallpaper for February based on my original printed design (see above), but specially for those who are trying to keep it super green this year and go paperless. I've never made wallpapers before, so I just picked a couple of popular aspect ratios and went with them. If y'all like these, I'll try to keep doing them at the first of each month.
In other news, I've submitted four designs to the most recent designer challenge at minted.com. If you're not too busy, I'd love if you'd pop over to and rate my designs (click on each thumbnail to vote). Winning designs are made available for purchase. Here are the designs I submitted:
